Liz & Chris

There are not many people that I would go for this crazy of a weekend, but Liz and Chris are totally worth it. Chelsea and I got onto a plane and flew to New York on Saturday. (I was in Madison till 12:30am, got a little sleep and then went the airport.)

To understand Liz and Chris is hard. They give all of themselves to the rest of the world. Their work and life is about helping and empowering the poor. So even a day focused around them, was more about their family and friends coming together.

The ceremony and reception were held at the Union Theological Seminary.

They had a custom made ceremony that was involving their family and friends. With great moving readings and songs filling the air by the whole crowd, many people were in tears.

We had a great cocktail hour filled with hugs and a general relaxed nature. With the wind blowing we all moved inside to hear some close friends and family give speeches. Each and every person told of the beauty inside of these two. I think given the chance everyone wanted to go up and share their pride in being their friend or family.

We were treated to their favorite food from Tanoreen. Then cannolis brought in from Philadelphia, cupcakes from an amazing baker, and chocolates from JohnandKiras. I know that everyone was stuffed and so happy by the end of the night.

In keeping with their spirit, they requested no gifts and to make donations to: Poverty Initiative. Please feel free to check them out and give them some support.

Smiles and Hugs

Gorgeous work as always from FR!

Is this the same Liz T. that grew up a few houses down from me in Fox Point? How funny we got married within a few weeks of each other and used the same photographer!

Congrats! Louisa
