I am absolutely crazy in love with Jessica & Dave’s retro rockabilly wedding! Not wanting to stick to tradition, Jessica & proposed to Dave over a jungle themed cake! She explained:
We had actually had no plans of ever getting married, but a few things changed and my views on the whole institution of marriage softened a bit. I knew that I wanted to get married, but I had no idea how I was going to bring up the subject, so it just happened sort of spur of the moment. One day we were watching Ace of Cakes, and they were making a jungle themed cake. I studied lemurs in the rainforest of Madagascar, so I turned to Dave and said “Will you get a cake with two lemurs on top of it with me?” and he said something to the effect of “What, wait, huh? Why? Are you asking me to marry you?” and I said “yes!”
Weddings like Hugo & Jenn’s are the reason I became obsessed with offbeat, alternative, unique and rock n roll weddings. With their roots firmly planted in the New York hardcore scene, this couple wanted a wedding nothing short of perfectly ‘them’.
Thanks to Matt for sharing this awesome couple and their fantastic wedding with us. I have too. much. love!
