Love Love Love

I just got back from a wonderful trip to Vegas with my husband & his parents. It was definitely not your typical vegas vacation- we pretty much did not gamble at all. What did we do? Eat. And we ate, and ate some more. Our family is a big food family with a weakness for good, quality, authentic Italian food. Our motivation for going on the trip was two-fold: Mario Batali had two new restaurants opening and we also got to see Love: the Beatles Cirque De Soleil. Everything was beyond on our expectations.

Let me start with Love. If you ever get the chance to see this show- see it! It is absolutely incredible. I have always loved Cirque De Soleil but this one was above and beyond because the entire show was set to remastered & remixed Beatles songs. If you can't get out to Vegas, I suggest picking up the soundtrack- it is amazing. I loved the dancing, acrobatics & the overall design- it was awe-invoking & beautiful.

I also highly recommend Mario Batali's two new restaurants, which are both in the Ventian: B&B & Enoteca San Marco. Amazing, orignal food, great service, excellent ambiance- all together an incredible dining experience. We ate at Enoteca twice during our 4 day stay! Yum.

Another one of my favorite things about Vegas is visiting all of the hotels for design inspiration. It's like a cheap, knock-off quick trip to Europe. (Having been to Europe, I know how dumb that statement is, but the hotels are beautifully designed). I also always check out the floral arrangements. I snapped a few photos and will post some of my favorites later this week.

More wedding posts to come! I've had some amazing events over the past month and cannot wait to share them with you!
