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

Eileen and Teddy topped off the evening with an after-party and an after-after party. "After the after party, we all piled into a bus and went back to the hotel, where there was a bar," the bride recalls. "Unfortunately, the bartender told us he was closed—but one particularly clever friend who works in the hospitality business convinced him to re-open. I remember looking back five minutes later and seeing 75 cold beers had magically appeared on the bar. And thus the post-after party commenced."
