Ruth Wang, 25, and Edward Bush, 27, may seem like buttonedup types (she works for an NYC-based hedge fund; he's an MBA student at Yale), but for their July wedding in North Yarmouth, Maine, the couple embraced the opposite vibe. "Our jobs are our jobs. We wanted to show off who we are and what we're really about," says Ruth. Take Ed's baroque proposal as an example: He gave Ruth photo albums that he had filled with scavenger-hunt clues, which led them through a trapeze lesson, a sewing class, and a tandem-bike ride before culminating in a private tour of a rooftop exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There, he finally popped the question—"atop Big Bambú [a massive installation of 6,800 interlocking bamboo rods], to be precise,' says Ed.
