A word of wisdom

This time of year can get a little kooky - so we wish you a happy holiday season and remind you to keep calm and carry on. We are headed up to Tarrytown on Monday for a wedding research / R&R combo. We are staying at the Castle on the Hudson, which should be lovely. Fit for a king and queen of course. Cheers!

It's snowing in New York,

OU is winning, we're in love and we ALMOST don't notice our obnoxious upstairs neighbors.  Oy Vey! says Franko.  You may have noticed that the blogging is in a holding pattern  - not because we're lazy, but the holidays a'cometh, etc, et. al.  Not that anyone is a dedicated reader - Mom? Bob Stoops? Our save the date AKA "safe the date" is in the works. Suzanne - friend + Illustrator from Germany, is working on it via Brazil. And Rabbi Fridkis is ready to bless.  What's next? The colors of course: crimson and cream!

For the early planners....

Here is some general information about the weekend:

Both the rehearsal dinner on Friday (sans rehearsing) and wedding will take place in the lower Hudson Valley. There are many quaint and beautiful towns there - with options of staying in luxury hotels, mid-range hotels and b&bs. Once we do more research, we'll be able to reccomend specific towns and hotels.

If you want to stay in Manhattan (for part or the entire time), that is also an option. You can get to the events by car or the metro north railroad (a 40 min ride from Grand Central). A car service back to the city after the wedding probably isn't too expensive.

In additon to the standard airports - Laguardia, JFK and Newark (NJ), consider flying into the Westchester County Airport in White Plains. If it's a good fare and you're staying up there, it's the way to go.

The Place

Our ceremony and reception will take place at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. We couldn't have dreamed of a more beautiful and appropriate spot to start our lives together. Blue Hill is located 30 miles north of New York City in Pocantico Hills - northeast of Sleepy Hollow and southwest of Pleasantville. Originally settled by the Wecquaesgeek Tribes, the area of Pocantico means 'running between two hills' (hence our blog address). In addition to the restaurant where we will celebrate our wedding, the Rockefeller Estate includes an agricultural center, cafe and many well treated cows and lamb. For a sneak peak, go to
