Thanks to my favorite florist Jen (more on her soon) for sending me this recent article from the Washington Post on a couple who decided an a very alternative method of getting from their ceremony to reception. Rather than renting the usual limo or Cinderella-style horse-drawn carriage, locals Anneliesa Clump and Scott Alprin paid $1.65 (per guest) and took the metro. That's right, the METRO. At the height of rush hour no less!
After departing from the Historic Synagogue in Chinatown the couple and their dozens of wedding guests braved commuters, escalators, gawkers, potential delays and Wizard fans arriving arriing for last Friday's playoff game. When all was said and done, the ride took about 5 minutes and Clump and Alprin felt they'd been true to themselves as "city people". Nice one guys.
