Christine and Cyrus contacted me eight months before their June wedding. They were planning long distance as Christine was in grad school in New York and Cyrus was in the Bay Area about to move out to NYC to start a new job. They fell in love with Union Station to hold their reception in as they spent so much of their relationship long distance that they felt that a train station would be the perfect place to celebrate their new marriage.
Their faith is a huge part of their lives, they held the ceremony at the gorgeous Wilshire United Methodist Church and officiated by their pastor. Many of their friends participated in the ceremony by playing the worship music that was printed in the programs.
The reception format was unique in that we intentionally set it up without a dancefloor--the lounge in the middle of the room was set with board games, karaoke, and a photobooth. It was a total hit! Christine's brother Stephan MC'd the evening and the guests had a great time celebrating the new union. It was a wonderful evening!
Congratulations, Christine & Cyrus! May you have a long and happy marriage!
