A Modern Red, Orange, and Fuchsia Wedding in New York
Trusting her friends' sense of style, Jodi asked her bridesmaids to dress as they liked in shades of red, orange, and fuchsia.
At the ceremony, crepe-paper flowers adorn the huppa; paper umbrellas shield guests from the sun.
A Special Moment
Jodi and her husband, Fred Muench, take a moment to celebrate.
Seating cards are tucked into coiled-wire stems of crepe-paper flowers.
A children's favor table resembles a penny-candy counter. Jars hold paper toys, peppermint sticks, and brightly wrapped candies.
The invitations were a collaboration between Jodi and Fred's sister, Allison.
Small paper lanterns dangle from the centerpiece of each table. Around them, paper blooms mingle with fresh-cut dahlias.
Notes tied to disposable cameras remind guests to leave them behind.

The wedding program, designed by Fred's sister Katharine and her husband (and illustrated by their son Jacob), is tied to a paper fan on each guest's chair.
Paper parasols add flair to cocktail glasses.

CD Wedding Favors
Jodi and Fred selected two dozen of their favorite songs -- some for dancing and others for romance -- then had them played at the wedding and made into favors for the guests. Bridesmaid Melinda Beck designed and illustrated the cover for "Mellow Groove." Jordin Isip, the best man, illustrated "Heavy Groove."
