This wedding was a mystery for about 6 months. I was contacted by the father of the groom, rather than the bride, and didn't meet Ariel until a few months before the wedding due to the fact that she's a PhD student at The University of Virginia. So I had no idea what to expect when I finally met up with her and her mother, Sarah. During that hour in Greenberry's, I quickly realized that this wedding was going to rock.
And when I finally got to meet Chris during their engagement session, back home from being stationed overseas, I was even more excited. I maintain that discussions about Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, steampunk (mixed with swing dancing!), and the like, really are the best sort.
So, without further ado, here's the wedding I looked forward to with such enthusiasm. I loved every detail from Ariel's dress to the bracelets Chris and his groomsmen were wearing to commemorate a dear friend. And the dancing! Amazing.
