Lastly London

Our last night overseas was spent in London. We stayed on the east side of London in the Shoreditch area. We were on a search for dinner, preferably fish & chips for Kyle and stumbled upon a food truck party. They know how to put on a good food truck event! It was called 3rd Market and had a DJ, bar, shopping, live music and more.

We decided to eat a crab sandwich, closest thing to Kyle’s fish & chips.

Mine had avocado and almonds on it Kyle’s had pomegranate.

The local brew was nice and so were the hammocks.

Wedding Dinner

We reserved a table at Lapérouse for 7:30 but our photographer suggested we push it back in order to make time for more photos. The restaurant is ancient.

We were, without question, the sharpest couple in the place that night.
Laperouse

We ordered the five-course meal with wine pairings. In France, a five-course meal is actually a ten-course meal btw. Here are some highlights: duck liver…

And strawberries with basil sorbet…

I had a difficult time focusing on dinner with my beautiful bride sitting next to me and looking so absolutely stunning!! How’d I get so lucky?

Wedding Blooper

As with any wedding, things never go as smoothly as planned. We forgot some minor details on our wedding day: the flowers, our umbrellas, the RINGS! Watch this funny video:

Stag Party

It’s the french equivalent of a bachelor party. I’m getting married in two days, I needed one! In that spirit, Davina and I went to Le Crazy Horse de Paris last night.
CrazyHorseFacade

It’s a cabaret and the current show is called, “Désirs.” Let me just say it was magical!
ShowStarts

I enjoyed the music, lighting, and choreography 😉 The production was artistic and well rehearsed; it’s essentially 15 or so unique acts back to back with a ten minute intermission in the middle.
CrazyChampagne

The show let out at 10:30 and when we walked outdoors we immediately noticed the Eiffel Tower. It was glowing in the distance, just across the bridge. We were looking for it on the way in and didn’t spot it! We walked over, despite the light rain and crowds of people.

Search For Wedding Locale Part Cinquième

Jardin Des Plantes was one of our stops today. This park features a maze, greenhouse (which was closed) and a zoo. We were in a hurry to get to our next destination so we zipped through the maze.

Where’s Waldo was in there too.

We checked out the wallabies.

Love how this place has so much history and age to it.

Search for Wedding Locale

We tried to wake up early today. Finding a location for our wedding was atop our agenda. We chose a few parks to scout, ate our breakfast, and were on our way!

Our first stop was La Promenade Planteé. It’s an old railroad track converted to gardens located 30 ft above street-level in a populated area of Paris.
CascadeGarden

It’s very nice but seems to serve as a trail for the locals. We saw many people running in exercise outfits and others eating lunch on benches.
KylePromenadePlanteé

The narrow walkway is lined with a variety of flowers. It appears well-kept. Every 100 yards or so you’ll pass under an archway. They appear quite nice wrapped with vines.
Archway

At one end of the trail there is a large green space where people participate in park activities.

Please comment if you do/don’t like this space for our wedding…

Bill or Check

We decided to go out for dinner and once again, we forgot our little French translator book. Luckily our waiter new English and explained the whole menu to us. We also asked if it’s called bill or check, they said either. At A La Renaissance Kyle had scallops

and I had roast beef and polenta
