From Lara Kimmerer...Amy & Eddie are two of the most joyful people I've had the pleasure to know. There's a playfulness between them that's infectious. Amy grew-up in Massachusetts, and Eddie was raised in Singapore. His parents had quite the love story of their own - during a time in Chinese history when couples didn't often marry for love. I'm sure being raised by two parents who truly respected one another gave Eddie a high standard for a lasting relationship - and he found his match in Amy.
Both have done a good deal of world traveling and each ended up in New York City. The two met at a mutual friend's party. Eddie immediately took a liking to Amy. Amy was busy enjoying life and being young in the city, and didn't notice Eddie right away. After a bit of coaxing from Eddie she agreed to go out for a drink. The conversation over drinks led to more conversation, which led to dinner and eventually a marriage!
Their wedding was hosted by Amy's wonderful parents at their home in Cape Porpoise, ME. Eddie had family travel from all over the world - including his 88 year old father, who came all the way from Singapore! The ceremony was the perfect blend of traditional and personal. They each wrote vows to one another, and Eddie's Maid of Honor read a selection from The Velveteen Rabbit. Immediately after the ceremony Amy & Eddie took a few minutes for themselves to soak in everything that had just happened. In the meantime, their guests enjoyed an incredible spread from Kitchen Chicks. The presentation was fantastic - and the food was delicious.
The reception was beautifully decorated by Kitchen Chicks and Anniebells. The pink gingham tablecloths and gorgeous flower arrangements came together to create a feeling of casual elegance - perfect for a Maine summer evening. For the guest favors, Amy & Eddie showed their humor, while being serious about their commitment too! Each person was given a bag with candy - as well as Toms of Maine toothpaste and a toothbrush. The note to their guests read, "Marriage is a balance of holding on, and letting go."
All of the details were beautiful, but their friends and family were what was most important to them that day. Smiles didn't leave their faces for a moment.The party culminated with sparklers on the front lawn and finished with all of their guests circling around Amy & Eddie for their final dance. Everything was absolutely perfect!
