Freada and Mike, 2.21.09

From the pages of “Now That’s What I Call Efficiency!” here is Freada and Mike’s fantastic wedding from just this past Saturday! Man, I love Brooklyn weddings, and this one was oh-so Brooklyn. Both Mike and Freada started their days at their parents houses — which happen to be on the same street! From there it was on to the venue — Bubby’s Pie Company in Brooklyn, which has a great mix of the classy and the quirky, and served some truly fantastic cupcakes. The ceremony was ably covered by a pastor and a rabbi who have been working together for 25 years on ecumenical ceremonies.

I couldn’t get enough of this couple, or of the great DUMBO environment. We wandered out together on the night-time city streets, glistening with moist river air. It shows how good a time we were having that I eventually had to say “Hey … don’t you have a wedding to get back to?”

I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off my first NYC wedding of the year.
