Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

“Nothing happens, and nothing happens, and then everything happens.” – Fay Weldon This is the quote with which I ended my vows to Faye. It best sums up how I feel about what happened to my life when she waltzed (or butterfly-flapped) into it. As I introduced the quote during the ...

Eric’s Blog Episode 15 – Seating Chart Cha Cha

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Eric’s Blog Episode 13 – The Backyard is Out, the Mill Room is In!

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

One lazy Saturday afternoon, Faye and I went to separate corners of our “cozy” New York apartment (a.k.a. two feet apart) to make initial lists of family members and close friends. The goal for our wedding guest list was 120 people. Not only would a group this size just fit inside ...

Eric’s Blog Episode 11: Saying “No” to the Dress

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Faye searched high and low for a wedding dress. She skimmed through hundreds of magazines. She surfed online. She went to sample sales and department stores and tiny boutiques. She made trips back to Boston to dress shop with her mother, and her mother came to New York. And she ...

Eric’s Blog Episode 10: Do People Realize That STD Stands for Something Else?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

When we first set out to design our save the dates – my mind started racing. I wanted ours to be unique and funny – nothing cookie cutter here! I had scads of ideas. Idea #1 An album cover for an imaginary folk band starring Faye and me. We would be decked ...

Eric’s Blog Episode 9: Four Bridesmaids for Seven Groomsmen

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

I always planned on my father being the best man at my wedding. He was my favorite person. He always kept me calm and made me laugh – because while I often found life overwhelming, he saw it as mostly a silly thing, with just a few bumps in ...

Eric’s Blog Episode 8: Calling All Caterers!

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Remember how Faye and I were going with the “it takes a village” approach to feeding the guests at our wedding? Let’s just say that Mistress Reality stopped by to pay a visit. The thought of spending the days leading up to our ceremony (and likely even the day of) baking ...
