The country bumpkins (+ an extra black lab) journeyed into the city for Ricky and Annie’s wedding on August 18th. Ricky was one of our roommates in college and we’ve enjoyed getting to know Annie these past few years.
The handsome groom with his best man (Annie’s Brother) before the ceremony
Their dog Boomer was a part of the ceremony and Annie’s roommate was the official Boomer handler (it said so on the program!)
The flowergirls and ring bearers were SO cute
The beautiful bride
The pastor joked after giving much of his homily that they had probably not absorbed any of it because they had “wedding brain.” He waved his hand in front of their faces to see 🙂
Mr. & Mrs. Yu!
I love the way the light falls across this bridesmaid’s hair
A lighthearted moment during the formals
Ricky and Annie gave a nod to the past by imitating the old school serious wedding photos – “no one smile – everyone look serious” Ricky yelled.
For two years in college my friends dubbed me Snow White and her seven dwarfs. Here are the dwarfs I lived with. Some of their names were messy, noisy, sleepy, messy, noisy, messy, and Jeff. Looking back I’m not quite sure how I survived the level of chaos and mess (especially dirty dishes in the sink) but looking back we had a ball and I’ll admit when I moved into my own apartment after college it seemed WAY too quiet (don’t tell the dwarfs I said that)
The beautiful table settings at Chelsea Piers
They took more formals overlooking the Hudson River on Pier Sixty
Annie and Ricky did two things I’ve never seen before. The first was adding to the tradition of kissing whenever people clink their glasses. They would do that, but if the crowd didn’t feel like they did a good enough job a married couple would come to the dance floor and demonstrate and then Annie and Ricky would have to follow suit. This was the grand finale – Ricky upside down being held by groomsmen kissing his beautiful bride 🙂
I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many single girls at a wedding! For the bouquet toss Annie stood in the middle of a circle of her friends and twirled one way while the circle twirled the other while the band played. When the music stopped she tossed the bouquet!
Thank you both for such a wonderful evening – we hope to see you soon!
