For realsies! It happened!!!
Divine Design airs February 19th at 8pm on W Network. The episode featuring Steven the design assistant. If that changes I'll let you know. Cause you'll want to see my one minute of fame, right? ;)

I double posted. I know you commented but for some reason this entry posted twice, I had to delete one. Thanks for commenting shugs! xo


I just want to say, that you two are just beautiful, inside and out.

Elisa Day

What a wonderful post. It made me so happy. What a day you had

Graciel @ Evenstar Art

Gillian, just what I needed to read today...thank you!
You have been on my mind lately, for obvious reasons. Much love to you for the helpful comment.


Tara Bradford

Oh you've described it perfectly! It was the most wonderful New York story for your first visit to the Big Apple! That's one of the things I love about New York - you never know what's going to happen next. And sometimes, it's something wonderful, as witnessing Barbara and Barry's wedding! (It is hoped I'll get to see the happy couple in May in Oxford). It was the BEST day and evening; thanks for this wonderful post about a magical city and a magical day. I will link to your post. Miss you! Lots of love, Tara xoxox

Tara Bradford

Oh, but about the being tired issue - you forgot to say neither of us got much sleep the night before. You were kept awake by New York traffic noises and I from jetlag, getting little sleep, then taking an early morning train to NYC from Philadelphia. :) xoxox


What a MAGICAL MARVELOUS story! One you will retell and revisit for many years. I love the serendipity of the Universe, we never know what's around the corner:)
Cheers, Shelagh

My Barry and I got married in Las Vegas. For some reason we though it would be easy to find witnesses. We arrived at the marriage commissioner's office and no one was there. Finally we found an elderly lady who made our day even more magical ... I really felt the universe had sent me an angel to be our witness.

Much love, M

Gillian daSilva

Thanks Elisa!!! Oh, I just LOVE your photos of the Ice Hotel.

Gillian daSilva

Thanks Graciel, I hope your mom is doing well. Thank God she has you to speak up for her.

Gillian daSilva

Wasn't it magical? I couldn't have had a better first visit to NY. Thank you so much for inviting me to meet you there, the only thing we lacked was more time.

Gillian daSilva

Oh the city that never sleeps!!! I can't believe the level of noise. I was in the Upper West Side too, nowhere near Midtown, and it was still sirens blaring and taxis honking all night long.
Poor you, that jet lag wiped you out! Don't forget ruining your shoulder too!!!

Gillian daSilva

Serendipitous to the max. You are so right.
It was dreamy. I loved that city!

Gillian daSilva

Kath, yes...hard to get people to participate in these things. Personally, I consider it an honour.

Gillian daSilva

It was a gift to us...we had almost lost half our day to a nap. Instead we ended up really milking our day for all it was worth.

Gillian daSilva

Pammy, groovy is right. I kept telling Tara that our entire day was like something out of a movie.
Tara even lost her camera at one point, and we found it. Can you believe it?

Gillian daSilva

Yes!! xo

Gillian daSilva

It was. We bought two "magic" Obama flags from a newsstand...and the day was like a fairytale from then on.


You told this beautifully Gill.
Your photos made the day complete for the happy couple I'm sure. I'm waiting to hear you tell about the magic 'Obama' flags next..!


oh man! What a fairy tale TALE...every bit of it!


Gillian daSilva

We nearly didn't buy the flags, they are quite cheesy! But! They had Obama on them and so we figured they would be a corny souvenir. Turns out they work well when one is pointing out Art Deco finishes on buildings, and other features of the city. LOL!
I think perhaps Tara will have a tale about the flags. Of course we love them now, they are far from cheesy to us! xo

Gillian daSilva

The best kind, a fairytale in NY!!!
Oh the tree sellers with each corner piled up with Christmas trees for sale, the skaters, the windows, and my fave, the roasted chestnut peddlers on the side of the road. It all made for a magical Christmas. To think, there was so much to see and do, I didn't even SHOP.
Not kidding.


m a g i c

you were the perfect girls to bless that



Aloha Blue, oh gosh, I love a good tale of romance.. I believe you have one brewing for the ages!!
thanks so much for sharing,
peace, Kai xx

Gillian daSilva

p.s. we have over a foot of snow falling here. you would love to take pictures in it!

Gillian daSilva

aloha my Hawaiian Goddess;
Yes, been cooking mine in the cauldron for a while now...got a good scald going.
Kinda like someone I know...ahem... :)


You were there for a reason. A beautiful, romantic reason. : )

I cannot believe you use the word for "realsies"! Me too! I love that! Very cool! : )


Hugs to you.


Fortune favors the courageous, mon bleux.


Gillian daSilva

I believe that too, the reason was for us to share in the history of a lovely couple. And they gave us memories in return. A sweet exchange of simple humanity.

Gillian daSilva

Then you my friend, must be a rich man. Tink! Loving and missing you my beach bound friend. I pop in to the beach every now and then, just to hear the waves lapping on the shore.
Was that your iPod, towel and Boggle game I spied? LOL


Life is so good.


What a beautiful post.

I, too, love colored glass...and other things that radiate light from within. : )


Don't you just love it when something happens that you would SWEAR is fiction because it's just too perfect?

What an amazing story!
Your blog has made my day :)

Gillian daSilva

Thanks for all your beautiful and uplifting comments.I'm linking you!


Robin Laws

Wow, you really do capture it very well. New York moments are pretty amazing and unpredictable. No surprise the Big Apple gave you such a lovely welcome, at all.
