"That day, the morning of our wedding, Bill had his bachelor party—a historical walking tour of downtown New York." Photo: Autumn Lin

"I needed ‘something blue,’ and found this monogrammed bouquet ribbon during one of my eternal online searches. My bouquet was made with roses and peonies." Photo: Autumn Lin

"We had a really lovely cocktail hour, then a sit-down meal. Initially, Bill was reluctant to have the wedding at the Harvard Club, because he was worried his relatives would find it stodgy—but they loved it. It was close to the church, and they do everything for you." Photo: Autumn Lin

"I knew I wanted to get married at Saint Bart’s. It’s the church I grew up in; the minister who married us also baptized me and my brothers." Photo: Autumn Lin

"Our colors were green and brown. Shirley, our florist, is very unassuming—she’s done a lot of work for hip-hop stars. I was like, 'You’re going to get a kick out of this Wasp-y wedding.'" Photo: Autumn Lin

"We got customized ‘cootie-catchers’ and filled them with questions we often get asked, like, 'How tall is Bill? Six-feet-six. The Yankees or the Mets? The Red Sox ...' and so on. We thought they’d be fun conversation starters, so we scattered them on all the tables." Photo: Autumn Lin

"One of the band’s singers jumped offstage and did a dance to ‘Sex Machine.’ They did an excellent job of getting the energy up and keeping it there." Photo: Autumn Lin
