Becca wore gold sequin sneakers with

THE RECEPTION: A calligrapher wrote
guests’ table numbers on the venue’s
garage doors. “It was my mom’s idea,”
Becca says. “It was pretty brilliant.” Dinner

Donuts on each level. “We still had the

They also had a wall of doughnuts. Guests
were encouraged to bring some home in
small paper bags with “Donut leave without a treat!” written on them.
A MEMORABLE MOMENT: Because
the couple met in Delaware, Becca’s dad

THE HONEYMOON: The couple honeymooned in the Society Islands of French
Polynesia a few days after the wedding.
They flew into Tahiti and spent five nights
in Bora Bora in an overwater bungalow,
then went to Moorea. “It was just perfect
to have 10 days to relax and spend that
time together,” Becca says.
