Holy SHIT we loved this wedding! And we loved this wedding because we LOVE THESE PEOPLE!! Jennie found us when her fellow Yale Law School student showed her his wedding photos. hollah. Nick and Jennie met each other on their first day of…pre school.. on the Upper West Side of NYC. Like ya do. They were classmates and friends throughout school and reunited as lovahhs after college. Today the live in CT so Jennie can finish up law school, and Nick is a musician who makes the commute back and fort to Manhattan for rehearsals and gigs. Their wedding ceremony was at Nick’s church, and the reception was a few blocks away in the basement of Jennie’s families church. The way Fallon Carter Events absolutely transformed a church basement was mind blowing! This was truly one of the best weddings of my career and it was purely because of the couple and the families of these two people.
Nick wrote and sung a song for Jennie at their ceremony, he and his friends sung a cappella to her during the reception, he and his family sung and played piano before the left for the ceremony and then group hugged before they walked into the church (!!??). Jennie, Nick, Cyndi and I walked through the city streets for photos, and they report that that was a big highlight for them. Sure was for us, too! They had a crown making station at the cocktail hour which is a GREAT idea! And Nick wore the high tops that he wore for their first date. C’mon. A hilarious side note that Cyndi and I still choke on our laughter about is when a guest *literally* took a fork to the wedding cake long before they officially cut and stood there eating the fucking cake with a fork. Cyndi actually collapsed in laughter when I told her. Fallon, the wedding planner, couldn’t help but laugh either. And so did Jennie and Nick, of course. Cuz it doesn’t matter. And it’s hilarious.
To the nicest couple of people ever ever ever in the whole wide world. Thank you very much for having us. WE LOVE YOU!
