Real Wedding Wednesday ~ From the Peace Corps All the Way to Brooklyn
This is an absolutely incredible wedding filled with such amazing energy and love, so if tears of joy aren't streaming down your face by the end of this post, then something is wrong with you! Just kidding. I was trying to be super dramatic (must be the cold medicine), and it's just not me. Anyway, Ericka and Emily met while serving in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia. I mean, shit... I met my hus in a bar (and was pretty proud of how strong we're still going), and these two meet in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia? Whoa. Talk about meant to be...
Anyway... From the Peace Corps all the way to Brooklyn. That's where E&E are currently residing. And on beautiful fall day, they exchanged vows by the lake in Prospect Park. Take a look...
I think I would look really cute in suspenders. Seriously. I think I need some.
I'm sorry, but these peeps are cool!
OMG. That headpiece!
Wait for it... Okay! Look down!!!
It really doesn't get much cuter!
The brides and their party took in the colorful murals in the neighborhood.
Such a fun bridal party!
Simply in LOVE with the bouquets!!
Joy. That's adulterated joy.
The reception was at the Bat Haus in Bushwick...
I mean... There are no words that could give this justice.
Ericka surprised Emily with a rendition of "Eight Days A Week" from The Beatles, among Emily's favorite bands.
A perfect pic for a perfect wedding!
