Yesterday, I went to a wedding. The ceremony was held at the Eglise Orthodoxe Roumaine.
Some things I particularly enjoyed:
- The bride wore a white top-hat and veil and totally pulled it off. Bravo.
- One of the priests, in full black regalia, took pictures with his iPhone while simultaneously chanting in Latin through part of the ceremony
- 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!
