McKenna and Cristian’s day was filled with: September sky and sunlight; a hotel room with a turquoise couch and a view of the city; photographs underneath the shadow of the St. John’s bridge; photographs in front of an ivy-covered wall; a part-Spanish/part-English ceremony in front of a light-filled window; kisses at twilight on a blue-vintage couch; a room packed with family and friends; and wholelotta love.

At the end of the night, the crowd sang along loudly to whitney’s “i wanna dance with somebody” and everybody got down. I sang along too, because that’s my jam, and i watched as the bride and groom danced their socks off in the glow of the pink-lit unionpine. And finally, it was time to say good-bye, and i left them under the twinkle of the lights, and under the sparkle of the disco ball, which shone over the newlyweds like a spinning planet of mirrors.

Congratulations to this amazing couple. C + M: you guys r.o.c.k.
