This weekend, Matt and I headed up north for a wedding outside of Boston. We were there to celebrate Jon (Matt’s old roommate and close friend) and Ali. It was a great weekend filled with good friends and fun festivities, oh and good food, too.
Friday afternoon we had the chance to stop in Boston for some exploring along Newbury Street. I hadn’t been there in a long time so it was nice to get the chance to be tourists for a few hours. I must say, though, it is wrong to put cupcakes in the name of a store that doesn’t actually sell cupcakes…
No carbs and calorie free?!
That night was the rehearsal dinner where we got a taste of New England with a lobster bake! The meal started with salad, clam chowder, mussels and clams and then of course we had lobster.
We got really into it…
The dinner ended with traditional moon pies and baseball cakes to represent the bride and groom’s respective teams.

Saturday night was the big event! Bride and groom under the chuppah
Matt is a pro at cocktail hours
And then, after my fair share of champagne, I think I overdid it on dessert. They had a chocolate and vanilla wedding cake with some sort of coffee filling and I think a buttercream icing. Between cake and the freshly whipped cream, I went a little bit overboard. Too much champagne + dessert buffet = room for improvement.
I try hard to eat intuitively, but sometimes desserts get the best of me! Something I am always trying to work on!
What are your food weaknesses? How do you stop yourself from overeating them?
Looks like a fun weekend! Love the mandatory cocktail hour photo!!
Cake is DEFINITELY my biggest weakness when it comes to resisting food. I usually just have to dive in and grab a slice but if I really don’t want one than I’ll think about how I’ll feel later and if I would regret it or not. That’s how the final decision is made.
OMG buttercream icing on white cake….self-control out the window (usually).
Did you make the cake in the header? It’s gorgeous!
Glad to find your blog!!
Thanks for the nice comment. The cake in the header is actually from my wedding shower and was from a bakery. However, my mom did make those cookies.
Chocolate any thing !!!!!!!! I have no will power.
Lordy look at those moon pies! >_< delicious!!!!!
I'd say that my weakness is bread products. I'm gluten intolerant so I really crave them. I get sick if I eat them too much, but sometimes that slice of pizza hut pizza is just sooooo worth the tummy ache!
Desserts are absolutely my food weakness – hence the single-serving pb cheesecakes ;).
Looks like a lovely wedding. Those photos have left me craving lobster!
How fun! Looks like you guys had a total blast!
What a beautiful collection of pix. I especially like the one of you and Matt–delightful. I have fond memories of Boston as my sister and I graduated from BU. Newberry St. was very cosmopolitan,probably still is.
Dessert buffets do me in too! I live in the Boston area, and totally agree about Johnny Cupcakes! So disappointing that they don’t have cupcakes!
