“I keep trying to quit wedding announcements, but I can’t!” I read this tweet a couple of months ago and could completely relate. There’s just something about weddings. The pomp and circumstance, the attention to detail, the romance—they’re steeped in tradition through and through and fun to witness, even when you’re not best friends with the bride and groom.
So much so, that perusing The New York Times’s wedding section was practically a hobby amongst my friends at one point. Don’t misread this, we’re not crazy wedding-obssessed ladies at Over the Moon. I didn’t even have grand plans for my own nuptials—there were a few non-negotiables for sure, but mostly, the booze and the band were the priorities. That said, I’m a complete sucker for other people’s wedding pictures . . . and reading the announcements—the stories of how the couple met—that typically go with them. Weddings are a time of celebration—two families and two sets of friends coming together to fete one couple. Call it voyeuristic, call it hopelessly romantic, but I love it—and I always wanted a place where the supply of chic, yet relatable weddings was endless. And with that, Over the Moon was born.
