The term bride is so loaded, right? From the moment you get engaged, people have now decided that the best day of your life is on the books and your true womanhood peak is inching closer. Want to know the great thing about Emily + Jenna? These two didn’t give two shits about this. They are both power players in the political scene --- Jenna, Hillary Clinton’s Digital Director, and Emily, the Vice President of Analytics at a Global Strategy Group, a political polling firm, are the definition of LADY BOSS. They crush it in their work scene --- so, this love party was obviously not a peak of anything. Not an accomplishment. Just a celebration that two totally rockin’ individuals in their own right met somebody they wanna kick it with forever.
The winter wedding was cozy and warm in the always inviting Housing Works. A progressive Jewish ceremony officiated by Rabbi Kleinbaum followed by a night with no sit-down dinner --- just a progressive approach to an extended cocktail hour. This meant more time for dancing, Hungry Hippos [yes - they brought in some CLASSIC board games] and homemade ice-cream made by Emily’s family’s farm. On top of all this magic was A LOT of Beyonce and girl-power anthem that made you stop to think --- are we celebrating just their love tonight? Or maybe all the amazing friendship love surrounding them, too? Because let me tell you --- there was a lot of that. Their core group of friends they call the STRONG LADIES. You heard that right. No fragile brides in this room. Just two power-players making it official and doing some sick dance moves in the process with their best friends.
