Scenes from a Memorable Weekend

What a way to wrap up the weekend. While Maya and I hightailed it to Sweden to attend Princess Madeleine's wedding (to Chris O'Neill), here in New York our Rooster family joined in on the annual Sundae Sermon featuring our house DJ Stormin' Norman. If you haven't heard of Sundae Sermon (or want to attend the next one), its mission is to support the spirit and strengthen the Harlem community by promoting healthy living, and environmental and educational development with parents and their children. With such beautiful weather we had on Sunday, it was nice to see the images of people coming out with their families to enjoy each other's company amidst some great music.

Over in Sweden, Maya and I were honored to be invited to this historic event. With so many royal members in town from Monaco, Britain, Japan and so many more, it was a feast for the eyes and the stomach. Maya hammed it up with the guards lining the red carpet (see above), and it was nice to sit back and not have to worry about what was happening in the kitchen. The food was great, the ceremony was exquisite and Maya and Princess Madeleine looked stunning in custom made Valentino gowns, who also attended the festivities.

Here's a look at some photos from the weekend:
