Natasha + Eric’s Backyard BBQ Bluegrass Wedding
Let me first mention that the morning of this wedding, it was raining… hard. On the drive down to Natasha and Eric’s wedding, I-95 South was stopped because a firetruck was blocking the left lane and two cars were sitting in the shoulder. Anyone who knows the state of Virginia know that a combination of Virginia drivers, a downpour, 95 with a lane closed and two cars pulled over on the shoulder to gawk at is an equation for a parking lot on the interstate. I trudged into Natasha and Eric’s wedding not knowing what was going to happen because it had been raining all morning and their wedding was planned to be outside in the yard of Eric’s grandmother’s beautiful home. When I saw Eric and Natasha, neither looked visibly flustered or stressed about the situation. The rain luckily stopped right before the ceremony was due to begin and the vendors quickly shuffled all of the chairs from under the tent to under the trees. Natasha and Eric luckily ended up being able to have their outdoor wedding just as they had planned. Eric’s cousin officiated their wedding and had introduced Natasha and Eric back in highschool! Natasha and Eric are involved with improv/writing comedy up in Brooklyn and also had several guests present who are comedians in New York City who came down to Virginia to celebrate with these two. Needless to say, their reception was really lively, entertaining, and fun to witness — complete with a BBQ buffet, blueberry pie AND cake, lots of delicious drinks, a fun photobooth and props, Russian music and dancing, bluegrass jammin, and plenty of laughs by all. Their bluegrass band, River City Band, had even made it a point to announce at the end of the night that this group of people had truly been one of the best dancing weddings they’d ever witnessed. I concur with that 100%! A big thanks to Natasha and Eric for having us there to witness such an important day in their lives and much love to them both!
