Erin’s father, a former costume designer for the Boston Ballet, had designed several wedding dresses for friends and family over the years. “Although he hadn’t done so in more than 15 years, he was more than happy to whip out the sewing shears for this one occasion,” Erin says. She and her dad searched everywhere for just the right ivory silk, and  ...

“I had a very simple thought process when selecting bridesmaid dresses -- I wanted my girls to be able to walk, stand, and dance comfortably in their dresses,” Erin explains. She chose black, strapless, tea-length dresses with a simple ivory satin cord that tied below the bust from Jim Hjelm Occasions. The rest of Erin and Marc’s wedding party also ...

“I just loved our cake, and I’m not even a cake person!” Erin says. She and Marc cut a four-tiered cake frosted in ivory buttercream, adorned with tiny frosted stephanotis and black ribbon, and topped off with an ivory fondant bow. Inside, each tier featured fudge filling between a layer of vanilla cake and a layer of chocolate cake.

Erin designed and printed all of the stationery, from the save-the-dates to the table numbers. She chose a simple ivory linen paper, and embellished it with a second paper that had a black and cream geometric pattern. She used the pattern as a wrap around the invites, and also to decorate the program and table numbers.

Erin and Marc’s first dance was to Van Morrison’s “Someone Like You.” After that, the party was nonstop. “Marc’s sole request was that he picked the last song,” Erin remembers. “At the end of every Red Sox home win the Standells’ “Dirty Water” is played -- they actually happened to perform it live while we were at game two of the World Series.

Erin & Marc in Nashua, NH

Erin and Marc met years back as Syracuse University undergrads. Erin stopped by to visit a friend of hers, and also met his new roommate, Marc. Though sparks didn’t exactly fly right off the bat, the two became friends over time, and a year-and-a-half later, began dating. The Bride Erin Plesh, 26, first grade teacher The Groom Marc Thaler, 28, sports reporter The Date December 17 Years later, Marc wanted to propose to Erin on her birthday (which falls around Thanksgiving) -- but a month earlier, when he got a hold of the ring, he realized he couldn’t wait. The night before his proposal, a friend of his called to offer two tickets to game one of the World Series between the Red Sox and the Cardinals -- and Marc, a die-hard Sox fan -- turned them down. “When I -- a New York Yankees fan -- found out that Marc had declined the tickets, I thought he’d lost his mind,” Erin remembers. “I screamed, ‘It’s only dinner -- we can go any time!’” Of course, she didn’t know about Marc’s plans (or that he had tickets for game two!), and Marc simply told her that he had plans for after dinner that were “nonrefundable.” Much to Erin’s surprise, Marc got down on one knee just outside the restaurant, and the two soon began planning a wintry wedding in the groom’s home state of New Hampshire.
