et le mariage etait magnifique.

Yesterday, I went to a wedding. The ceremony was held at the Eglise Orthodoxe Roumaine.

Some things I particularly enjoyed:
  1. The bride wore a white top-hat and veil and totally pulled it off. Bravo.
  2. One of the priests, in full black regalia, took pictures with his iPhone while simultaneously chanting in Latin through part of the ceremony 
  3. We got to throw rice when the bride and groom exited the church. Always wanted to do that.

    The reception was later in the evening at Le Cellier St. Paul, a very cool space over in the Marais- a sort of softly lit subterranean grotto made up of a number of little rooms. With champagne and hors d'oeuvres. 

    I made the mistake of walking to the party in terribly uncomfortable 5-inch heels, so I only stayed the length of 1 1/2 glasses of champagne, but it was a lovely evening (and I was so tall!)

    Felicitations, Stephane et Dana!
