Its not every day you see a wedding with practically no flowers used…but thats just the case with Amber + Joe’s wedding!  They had some pretty talented family and friends helping them out, but Amber can explain it better…

us: We met in our first class in the graduate program in anthropology at The New School for Social Research.  We were casually disinterested friends for two and a half years before we were in a study group together and realized we were in love.  We decided to get married because we love each other so much, and a wedding seemed like a really good way to celebrate that with the people in our lives.  We both love books (ok, we’re nerds), our friends, and don’t care for impersonal wedding traditions, so we decided from the start that we could make our wedding whatever we wanted it to be.  When things got stressful we would just say to each other, “At the end of this we get to get married!”  Most of all, we wanted everyone to have fun.

Our parents helped us so much, but as struggling anthropologists, we still had a very small budget to work with, so we and our friends constructed, created, wrote, and made every part of our wedding.  It was truly collaborative, and truly us.
