Cathy and Jon’s wedding brought us to Baltimore, Maryland although it didn’t seem so much like Baltimore at times. When the couple met each other for the first time that day it felt more like an exotic place, somewhere Europe-y, somewhere like Rome…
Their ceremony and reception was held in the George Peabody Library in the Peabody Conservatory, a.k.a. the Cathedral of Books. Breath taking, I couldn’t figure out why it seemed so familiar until a rerun of Ghostbusters on cable later that week. Given that we reference the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man on the daily in this household now that our 3 year old is walking out the door in a size 5 winter jacket, I’m surprised I didn’t remember the scene sooner. Unfortunately a Google search just informed me that I am dead wrong about the movie location but I just can’t bring myself to take back the reference.
There were so many things that made this wedding stand out. Gorgeous couple, location and flowers, of course, but we were especially touched by the way that Cathy and Jon wove threads of their Chinese and Jewish heritage into a truly unique wedding ceremony.
Then there was Rocky. We never got the back story but this squirrel can party like its 1999:
