Jenna -N- Ricardo met at school here in Austin and moved to New York City so Ricardo could pursue his career in finance. Jenna works for a bakery in Queens (I think ;) They share a small space in Jersey City and commute. Despite living in the New York/New Jersey area, they decided to marry in Austin where their roots are firmly established. They wed in a Catholic service at Santa Cruz Catholic Church where they exchanged loving looks and fist bumps for an hour.
They travelled from there to the beautiful Hummingbird House where the real party got started. Jenna sat down MAYBE one time during the entire night, but I did see her guzzling water from a plastic pitcher on the dance floor, a testament to the brilliant stylings of His and Hers DJ service! Pink Avocado provided delicious Spanish family-style fare, which was yummo, obviously. Say Cheese Photobooth was a constant source of entertainment throughout the evening, guests filed in and out of the booth all night long wearing funny hats and glasses and collecting their images at the end. The groom's cake was a screaming blue electric guitar which sat loudly next to the orchid covered brides cake both by Coco Paloma Desserts. Wait... did I mentioned the absolutely insane tradition of climbing the surf-board shaped men in the family and dancing to "Wipe Out?" it was NUTS, and so much fun.
