Mike and Emma's Wedding

Remember my friend Emma, of poofy headband fame? Well, she looked so pretty at her wedding that I thought we should take a closer look at the rest of the festivities...
First off, she married a graphic designer (smart call!), so they designed their invitations together. Their friend Catherine Thompson painted their incredible portrait. ("We wanted to marry her, too," says Emma.)

They typed each invitation individually. Very Wes-Anderson-chic.

They also made buttons of their cute faces.

Then they had the intimate wedding ceremony at Emma's family's house in New York. Emma wore a ban.do headband. Michael did not.

They're friends with Stephin Merritt (!!) who sang "Walking My
Gargoyle" as Emma's dad walked her down the aisle and "You You You You You" during the ceremony. Then a few friends read Frank O'Hara's "Having a Coke with You," David Sedaris's essay "The End of the Affair," and the last paragraph of Jane Austen's Emma.

Afterwards, they all headed down to Mary's Fish Camp for lobster rolls.

Emma and Michael are the cutest, laughingest couple. Wasn't their wedding amazing?!

Uncle Beefy said...

Tracy K said...

Absolutely adorable. Love every bit.

I love weddings that make you sorta wish you could do yours all over again.

hello gorgeous said...

Yours is the only blog I can focus on today that is non-political. :-)

This is so sweet. I think you recently posted on another really small, intimate wedding. I think it's the wave of the future. I really think big, obnoxious weddings are on their way out and intimate homespun, true weddings are coming back in. Hope so anyway. You should do an article on it.

And I LOVE the J. Crew dresses (and have for quite some time, she says, lamenting the fact that they came out right after her wedding...).

Jennifer said...

Love it. Their happiness just oozes off the pics.

They are too cute.

Jenni said...

If I could do a re-do, this is the wedding I would have. Stephin Merritt!!

Kimberly Julie said...

Soooooooo Wes Anderson chic... you hit the nail on the head with that one.

Aartee said...

So cute! I love the buttons they gave out to everyone such a fun way to remember this day and she totally pulled off the headband I never could have!

EmElle said...

Probably the cutest, coolest wedding I've seen in a long time. I love every single thing about it. Cheers to them! And thank you for sharing it with all of us.

Olivia said...

i agree that it's out with the "must have" wedding list and in with the "what I truly need" list- we had a personal intimate wedding and I loved every moment of it...congrats to you and I hope you enjoy every minute of planning it!

katrina said...

this is a beautiful post!
i'll be re-blogging :)
by the way congrats on your engagement!

Caitlin said...

The invitations are amazing. I love non-traditional weddings, but especially super adorable and creative untraditional ones. She looks gorgeous! I'm about to go watch Having a Coke With You on youtube because I love it so much haha

abby said...

they did NOT have stephin merritt sing walking my gargoyle while she walked down the aisle! thats crazy awesome. im SO JEALOUS!

The Sassy Kathy said...

this wedding is fantastic! so simple and sweet and personal. and i love the short classy dress! thanks :)

lepetitdoodler said...

personality-filled weddings are the best. the photos are oozing joy! love the unfussy dress, poofy headband, and omfg, FLATS?! so-so-wonderful. looking forward to YOUR wedding :)

Emily said...

Friends with Stephin Merritt? Walking My Gargoyle down the aisle? Can't say I have any plans to get marries, but I am certainly fostering incredible amounts of jealousy over here! That's amazing.

Emily said...

"to get married", that is, not marries. Whoops.

...love Maegan said...

so sweet! I love the first photo and the one where she's wiping her tears. so cute!

foobella said...

I never thought I'd say this after the end of my first marriage, but every single thing about their wedding, from the invites to the lobster rolls, makes me want to get married again.

Beautiful. Fun.

Rachel said...

I am madly in love with those invitations. The whole thing is intimate and personal and perfect.

Stephanie said...

Holy moly, this is great!

This wedding is by far the best I've seen in a while - every little thing perfect, and perfectly them.

Wow.

Lauren K said...

Oh my gosh - adorable!

naomi megan. said...

oh my goodness so lovely.

Linda Sue said...

AHHH! I don't like weddings- this one is exceptionally cool and sweet and REAL! Awesome details! Best wishes for them always! wonderful!My hope is that their marriage is as lovely! Great post!

tfh. said...

i know these people!!! michael and my husband are very good friends and i had the honor of meeting them at yet another wedding this past summer down in florida. honestly, i fell in love with them both.
their wedding was beautiful!

Desiree Fawn said...

Oh my word I love that first photo -- so sweet. I hope I have a picture like that if we ever get married ^_^

Miss Jo said...

great head piece! i love how simple and cozy the wedding seems in these photos!

jennifer in sf said...

I think they had the dream wedding I didn't even know I wanted. Having Stephin Merritt play is just beyond awesome.

Anonymous said...

they are really cute together. they look very happy.

Emma said...

oh, you are all too much. thanks for all the wonderful remarks. a few of you commented on my dress-- it was my mother's wedding dress. i always knew i wanted to wear it-- never even thought about buying a new one. made the whole process much less stressful. one less thing to think about!

thanks again! i love all the love.

Helen said...

This is exactly the kind of wedding I would have if I ever got married! Small, cute and personal. Big white weddings are sometimes all the same and lack personality. Of course I can only dream of having Stephen Merrit playing...

Style Bite said...

those buttons are genious!

Anonymous said...

perfect.

Darling Dexter said...

i'm in love with this wedding...every detail...lovely :)

snow said...

ms. spinach said...

guess i wasn't the only one who was so completely enamored with their beautiful, original wedding... loved it.

The Fab Miss B said...

I love how it was understated and personal and still had a great sense of occasion. So charming!

Anonymous said...

I agree with the fab miss!

Kimberlee said...

Now that is a wedding! Being at the age where I attend a wedding at least every other weekend this is a breath of fresh air, about two people, in love, excited about spending the rest life together not just the circus that can be the wedding day. a massive belated congratulations to you guys on your engagement. And just quietly, something tells me Michael was a bit jealous he couldn't ban.do - anyone with half a brain is wishing they could wear ban.do 24/7!! xx

Michelle said...

Oh god, I love everything about it, small, home wedding, in New York...her dress is so killer, I even love that she is taller than him (I am taller than my sweet O...) sigh....

TheSundayBest said...

Stephen Merritt sang at their wedding...

wow.

Alya said...

Its beautiful!!

Alice said...

oh they are so cuuute !!!

Kicking and Screaming said...

this is the cutest wedding I've ever seen what a beautiful comfortable modern couple - straight our of a wes anderson movie - except probably more functional

Maggie Sottero said...

Stumbled by here while reading a few wedding blogs, looks like a perfect day :-)

julie said...

wow. what a wonderful, personal wedding. so great because with the trend toward super-big weddings it was nice to see an intimate affair with such happy people clearly full of love.
