How cool are Amy and Rich? Well, Little Wayne and Drake were at their wedding, so . . . I think that speaks for itself. (To be clear, when I say “at their wedding” I mean they were staying at the same hotel as Amy and Rich–the fabulous Park Hyatt in Washington, DC).
Amy and Rich met during college. It is a cute story the couple has entitled “Hams, Yams, and a Tree.” As Amy explains:
Our first date was somewhat of an accident. In November, I had gotten four tickets to the lighting of the National Christmas Tree. Two of the people who were supposed to go with us canceled, so Rich and I ended up going alone. After making our way to the Ellipse and through security, we sat in the cold for a few hours just to watch President Bush push a button to light the tree.
After the tree was sufficiently lit, we headed to the nearest restaurant – a very crowded Cosi. Rich nervously waited in line, wondering if it would really be a date if he paid for both of us. After some time, we ended up with the last two ham & yam sandwiches and hot chocolates.
So much suspense waiting for the walk down the aisle.
Amy stopped to hug her mom as she walked down the aisle–incredibly sweet!!
This photo is for Rich! During Catholic wedding ceremonies some couples present flowers at a side altar to the Virgin Mary. Rich and Amy had not rehearsed this part of the ceremony. Here is their reaction when the priest made the announcement that they would present flowers!
My fav photo below on left. Thanks to second shooter Minh for these two!
Amy and Rich saved liquor bottles for a year to make their vases! That’s my kind of DIY wedding project!
Congratulations, Amy and Rich!
