Rehearsal Dinner @ Bryant Park

As most of you are aware, the wedding was cancelled. The bride did not postpone it, the venue did. Can you imagine looking forward to your wedding day for months, and then one day before the wedding your venue calls you to tell you that you won't be having your wedding. Calling to tell you that the wedding you have been planning for over a year isn't going to happen.

Yeah, I can't imagine. All I know is that my mom would not be happy to hear the words that would be coming out of my mouth. Now looking at it, it was the best decision the venue could have made because yesterday's weather in the city was plain awful. Sometimes a decision has to made that you can't make yourself.

We didn't get to do the rehearsal at the church but the rehearsal dinner was still on. It was an amazing time. It was nice to see that all of our spirits weren't down. Although our dear friends were not getting married the next day, we were still there to celebrate their union, and celebrate we did!

Here are a ton of pictures of the night.


The bride is on the far right with the polka-dot dress. Look at that smile :)





With the soon to be Mr & Mrs.



I love how happy I look in this picture


Can you see me behind Sean, being a creeper? Haha.




With my honey who won't be able to make the rescheduled wedding next weekend.


Jihae and Paul, I cannot wait to see you both get married next weekend. I am thrilled to be able to stand by your sides on the most special day of your lives. I know that if you can overcome a hurricane before you are even married there is no way that you won't be able to overcome anything together. I love you both!

I can't imagine having a venue cancel my wedding. Wedding!!! Seriously, what New York wedding is cancelled due to a hurricane. Crazy stuff.

I second the shoe comment. I want to see more of those suckers.

And you as a creeper, make that your Christmas card pic. Because I think that would make all your family like you even more.

Wow -- I can't imagine finding out the day before my wedding that it is being rescheduled!! I would NOT have been a happy girl. It looks like they took it in stride though =)

I LOVE the picture of you creeping -- My husband does stuff like that all the time lol

Nancy said...

That is a huge bummer! Hopefully too many people won't have to miss the new wedding date. Sorry Sean won't make it. Every time I hear Bryant Park I think of NY Fashion week.

Tami said...

You and Sean are just about my favorite couple... ever! Even if you *are* a creeper Faith! :)

That really sucks about your friends wedding- but at least she was all smiles for the rehearsal. Like you said, it was better that it was canceled- a lot of guests may not even have come and she would be a nervous wreck for the guests that did chose to come. We got hit hard here too, but my parents still went to a wedding about an hour away- was worried for them- their car even died- what a day for the car to die! Anyways- enjoy the wedding next week!

Megan said...

That really is so crazy, but I'm glad that y'all were all safe!!

toi said...

That's too bad that their wedding was postponed. But how telling of the stuff they are made of that they just partied and smiled and kept moving forward. Best wishes to them, for a wonderful fairy tale wedding next week!

Brandi @ Home Team Dreams said...

Sorry about your friend having to wait another week to get married! You guys all look so pretty and sophisticated in NYC! I haven't dressed up that cute in years :)

Courtney B said...

Love the pictures!! You look so gorgeous!!
And I am just dying about the venue... how can they do that? Just one day before the wedding? And did they have honey moon plans that they had to change? Did they lose money in having to change those plans? I really am just dying over here!! Your sweet friends are so amazing to have such high spirits through it all!

Married...with a Pup said...
