The scene: A dimly lit bar in New York's East Village. It was the third and final stop on Libby's 26th birthday tour. As the party continued into the wee hours, Libby and a friend, found themselves victim to a professional pickup-line artist. Just before the two bolted in disgust, the said offender's friend stepped in to save the night. One upward gaze into his blue eyes, one hint of an English accent, and Libby instantly melted. Hours later, Libby and her handsome British crush, Stephen finally left the bar, but not before Libby put her name and number into his cell phone. The pair went to dinner the following week. The Bride Elisabeth (Libby) Chisholm, 29, fashion designer The Groom Stephen Fearnley, 42, organic chemistry professor The Date October 27 Two and a half years later, at a bar in Long Island City, the couple, who already had an extensive amount of photo booth pictures, decided to jump into the bar's photo booth to add to their collection. To Libby's surprise, Stephen proposed mid picture, and the photo strip, with Libby's mouth wide open in surprise, was later used as the couple's save-the-date card.

The bride and groom showed off their best moves by performing their first dance to All of Me by Frank Sinatra. Dance lessons certainly paid off!
Libby made her ceremony programs from light brown paper. They were tied together with antique copper, antique nickel, or antique bronze. The cover showcased Libby's own illustration of anemones.
Clear glass vases of varying sizes and shapes filled with spindly ranunculus sat atop dark chocolate tablecloths. Votives candles and small iron lanterns also adorned each table.
Libby carried a bouquet of red anemones with green hypericum berries wrapped with wide chocolate-colored velvet ribbon, which she put together herself.
Libby designed all the printed materials for her wedding, which featured her own drawings of anemones, a motif that was repeated on escort cards and invitations.
Swiss dots decorated the ivory buttercream cake while a two-inch band of dark chocolate-colored velvet ribbon trimmed the base of each tier. The inside had vanilla cake with mini chocolate chips.
