Every time I do a wedding for Fordham alumni I’m reminded of why I’m proud to be one — sure, there’s a beautiful campus in the middle of NYC, including a gorgeous chapel Anne and Griffin were married in, but what I continue to love most are the people. Fun, driven, open, gregarious — the sort of people who know that guests in the middle of heavy revelry, even guests who have been enjoying Abagail Kirsch’s fantastic catering at the Lillian and Amy Goldman Stone Mill, need a little White Castle to keep them going.
Fordham and the Botanic Gardens, right across the street from each other, was a great combination to take advantage of the fall day. The foliage was peaking out, they looked fantastic … and they got to visit her old dorm room, where a gracious but confused girl let the wedding party in for a few photos and then a foosball match.
And the definition of a great reception is when there are so many photos that I desperately want to share with the world, but know I probably shouldn’t.
