Stopping in during a crazy busy Monday for a quick weekend recap – only because it was too good not to share : ) We had plans to visit Hoboken for Saturday and Sunday to celebrate – one of our best friends was proposing to his girlfriend and asked me to capture the moment!
We headed up there bright and early, I got situated in the freezing cold rainy wind on the Hoboken waterfront and patiently waited for the lovely couple to arrive, while the rest of the gang headed to Pilsner Haus where we would eventually meet them for celebrations.
Ironically, I kept warm / hid inside the vestibule of a newer restaurant down there (McLoone’s Pub) which was CLOSED for the day to set up for a wedding reception! The florists and event planners kept asking if they were in my way, which was adorable since I felt the same way about MY presence. Nevertheless, the proposal went off without a hitch – even captured the moment on GoPro! – and the bride to be was the picture of surprised perfection : ) You can see more sneak peeks coming soon on my Valley Photography Facebook page!
The celebration afterwards was supposed to take place at Pier 13, but impending hurricane weather drove us inside instead, and it turned out to be a pretty amazing afternoon at Pilsner Haus’ Oktoberfest. I love hardly anything more than giant liters of beer and bratwurst! #German
We had an early breakfast (the only “non-family” at Stacks at 8:30am) and headed home, where I proceeded to nap like a bandit before a quick shopping trip with my mama. I’d call that a pretty successful weekend, no? *Except the Eagles, but let’s not talk about that…
Happy Monday! May your coffee be hot and your workday seem short <3
