An Eclectic, Vintage-Inspired Wedding in Yonkers, New York

A fashion-writer bride and her groom dream up an intimate affair among the lush gardens of Alden Manor.

Eileen and her friend Caroline had enough of being hit on by random men—random Irish men, to be exact, who "followed us incessantly" through a Lower East Side bar, Eileen says—and so they ducked out of Puck Fair without a second thought. Until Eileen spotted a group of cute, non-threatening guys, that is. "Once outside, Caroline and I looked at each other and said practically in unison, 'Why did we just leave?'" Eileen recalls. "We went back in and started talking to said guys, one of whom was Teddy," the man Eileen would marry more than five years later.

"My first impression of him was that he looked like Brian MacKenzie from Father of the Bride. Talk about a subversive, underlying message," Eileen jokes. Photo: Cappy Hotchkiss Photography
