As the curtain went up on the tour of "Mama Mia" there was a full audience, a lot of energy on the stage, and two lovely folks meeting in the wings. Jennifer and Eric's friendship began right there, with the songs of Abba surrounding them. After multiple shows, tours, and adventures Jen and Eric got married steps away from Times Square and Broadway. Despite the location and though they are both part of the showbiz industry their wedding was simple and intimate, taking place on a greenery-laden private terrace. Their close family and friends (and adorable dog ring-bearer Betty White) joined them to celebrate on the beautiful New York City fall evening.
The following day the friends gathered again to parade through Times Square to celebrate the couple with a joyous kazoo parade. As they passed through the tourist-heavy zone they were greeted with cheers and high-fives. It was so much fun to see perfect strangers so excited for Jen and Eric's wedding. The parade led right to the front door of St. Andrews, a Scottish bar and restaurant that housed the reception. There was so much love in the room as guests danced, ate cake from Amy's Bread, and passed around a cardboard cutout of dog Betty White for photos. Everyone had something wonderful to say about the couple, who are kind, warm, and well-deserving of all of the love.
The whole weekend was an absolute blast. Jennifer and Eric were both calm and welcoming every step of the way, making us feel like part of the family. It's always an honor to be invited into events like this, allowed access to all of the special moments along the way. Thank you to Jen and Eric. Congratulations! Wishing you a lifetime of love ahead.
Thank you to all of my fellow vendors!
