Fashion designer Erin Fetherston met rock star Gabe Saporta at a red-carpet fashion gala in the fall of 2010. Sparks flew, and the pair began a fairy-tale romance that culminated in an engagement a year-and-a-half later, while they were vacationing in Barbados.
When they imagined their wedding, Erin and Gabe pictured a romantic, old-world setting. Together (and with a little help from us), they created just that, using the verdant woods of Barbados as their backdrop.
"In a traditional Jewish ceremony, there are no vows," Erin says. "But we really wanted to say, 'I do.'"
Gabe ad libbed a bit. “The officiant asked, ‘Will you always love and cherish your wife?’ and Gabe said, ‘And I’ll always have your back and I’ll always protect you, and you’ll never be alone,’” said Erin.
