Not a Bride Anymore…I’m Just Somebody’s Wife

So, it’s just me. That old married lady.Β 

Yep, tied the knot this weekend – between my now husband rocking the guitar onstage to my college voice teacher singing at my parents house the next day it was a pretty awesome weekend.

That being said, I don’t know how some brides claim that they don’t eat all day. I couldn’t STOP chowing down the whole damned time!


I had a healthy breakfast.


A hearty lunch with the hair and makeup team (yes, for one day, I lived like a Kardashian)

cake via

And – of course – the cake of my dreams (Spoiler alert: Ron Ben-Israel is not only the sweetest man to work with but also a certified magician: He can make any bride bust out of her perfectly fitted dress because she can’t stop eating his otherworldly cake.).

Tomorrow, we are back in business to chat about the rehearsal dinner. For the next 2 weeks, expect guest posts, wedding recaps, and maybe a few posts from abroad.

That’s right, I am going on my honeymoon tomorrow and can’t wait to send you all sorts of tasty tidbits from…




  1. Love you so much! Wedding was amazing and you are the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. Don’t tell any of my other friends that. xoxo have a safe and FABULOUS honeymoon!!!

  2. Congratulations!! Long-time reader and Greek girl..enjoy your honeymoon!! Where in Greece are you going? I see the shot of Santorini; please tell me it’s on the schedule!

    • Wow, Cathy, thank you so much for your comment!! Santorini IS on the schedule!! We can’t wait!! It’s Santorini, Mykonos, and Athens. Do you have any recommendations for any of those spots? I plan to just gain my love handles in feta and vinsanto!

      • Excellent choices on islands! In general, there are a few things you should try in each island- Santorini is known for their fava (lentils) and domatokeftedes (tomato “meatballs”). 1800 (in Oia) is delicious for a fancy night out, while Archipelagos (in Fira) is located on the main part of walking/shopping areas with beautiful views. I’ve eaten at both and they were great. Also, just grabbing a gyro while walking around is one of my favorite activities. No matter where you go, you must have real Greek yogurt with honey for breakfast. I swear it is the best stuff ever and your nails will be unbreakable for weeks to come! Have fun and congratulations again!!

          omg Cathy…I ate so much yogurt that I think that I have staved off osteoporosis for the rest of my life! We tried to get into 1800 but ended up at Ambrosia instead…also insanely delish. Can’t WAIT TO RECAP for everyone. Spoiler alert…yeah..Santorini is HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!!

  3. what a fantastic day you had! After stalking you on facebook and instagram I must say, you looked like pure perfection. You were stunning and glowing all over! Loved everything. Congratulations to you, Mrs. Richter! Have an amazing time in Greece with your hubby!

      Thank you so much, Linda! I drank more wine than ever before and ate so much feta that I actually got misty when trying to find some of the good stuff in the grocery store today. It just ain’t the same when you have to go to work the next day, right?!
