Boston University Castle Wedding
April Fools Day
Amy and Eric had a Boston University Castle Wedding on April Fools Day. No tricks here, this was the real deal! Amy and Eric took the fast tracked approach and planned their wedding in only a few short months, but they certainly didn’t skimp on making it personal and fun. Amy made all of the origami decorations, which included the centerpieces, escort cards and cake embellishments. This was not just your typical paper cranes, but flowers and intricate geometric shapes as well. So fun! Amy and Eric also included our photo booth, which was a huge hit of the night.
Amy and Eric, thank you so much for including us in your wedding day!

How did you both meet?
Amy: “First, online! (Not very romantic.) Then we met in person on his birthday 5 days later. Talk about easy to remember anniversaries.”
What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?
Amy: “Watching our officiant cry during the ceremony. The three of us joked that Eric and I wouldn’t hold it together, but she would be the stoic one. It ended up that the opposite happened!”
Eric: “For me, the most memorable part was the dancing. I’m usually pretty embarrassed by my dancing but I felt pretty good about it and people told me I had some good moves so that made me feel good.”
What was the funniest?
Amy: “This relates to the first question. I cracked up during the father/daughter dance when my dad asked me where I first heard the song (since he’d never heard it before a few weeks ago when I shared it with him). I said I heard it online (youtube). He’s a technical luddite so he said “Wow, you can get anything online nowadays” and I said “Yeah, like a husband!””
Eric: “Amy’s short joke in her vows.”
Advice for future couples?
Amy: “Eric took the stereotypical “let the girl plan everything” role. At first I got angry because I read it as him not caring about it, but he made it clear it was a mixture of him honestly not caring about details, and also his anxiety at not wanting to mess anything “I wanted” up. So I asked him to be in charge of the one thing he thinks he does best – be goofy – and he picked out a bunch of additional props for the photobooth that meant something to him. I also said I could make all the decisions but he has veto power if he wants it. It’s all about knowing your partner’s strengths and weaknesses.”
Eric: “Hmmm, not sure I really did enough of the planning to have anything useful to say.”
