The Wild Lyons Wedding

Before we had this blog, I would find bloggers that I loved, read so many articles about what was going on in their life and just when things were starting to get good, they’d stop writing. And I’d think to myself… well that’s dumb, why can’t they just keep up with it? And the answer is life, life is what happens – you get busy with work, and taking time off for yourself and pretty soon unless it’s something you totally enjoy, then blogging sort of becomes a chore. As you might have guessed, the story of our road trip is not done.  We went many places after Yosemite and I’ll share those with all of you one day soon, I hope! The winter was simultaneously not as good and not as bad as I was hoping; I composed this healthy list of “Winter Projects” and I completed zero of them, one of which was to finish the road trip on the blog. So hopefully soon!

What we have been occupied with is our wedding, that’s right, we did it! Lyons in the Wild are officially plural! A few weeks ago we got married, real deal married with a wedding and everything! To me it was perfect – and to be honest, I hope everyone feels as happy about their wedding as we did about ours. We wanted to keep it simple: beer, band, food truck. And I’ll tell you what, it was really hard to find somewhere that lets you do that, especially if you aren’t looking to spend 20K on a day. But we did have a wedding and I’m thankful.

There were times when we were already past the point of no return (in terms of financial investment in the wedding) and we thought, “what the hell are we doing or why the hell are we doing this?!”  And I would hear my friend Erin’s voice in the back of my head say, “it’s so cool to have all of your friends and family gathered around you for one day – and that makes the aggravation worth it.” And it did. It was more amazing then I could have dreamed or expected – overwhelming at times but wow, so cool.

I almost can’t believe how fast it went, and having been in plenty of weddings I had heard this time and time again. It goes so fast. We purposely cut the reception off a littler earlier than most because I wanted to be courteous of our guests so they could go home but in hindsight I think that bunch could have kept going for a few more hours. And as my Uncle Carl said, "it just got more magical as the night went on."

Thank you everyone for traveling to see us! I know it was a haul for so many of you, we had people from 18 states join us and not to sound like a broken record but - yes - I'm so thankful! You are the best!

  2. I shot a wedding at this place recently. It is such a simple and classic venue to shoot at. The coordinator was also such a pleasure to work with as well as the staff. Would recommend these NYC wedding venues for any couple looking for an intimate wedding!
