Draft 1, 4:00 PM
About the Couple: Mark and Kendra were just two single twentysomethings following their dreams in New York City. Then on January 8th, 2011 a chance encounter at a local watering hole brought them together and they've been a couple ever since. Mark is an industrial engineer and Kendra is a nursing student. They live together with their dog, Patsy, in Park Slope. But of course you already know all this since you're invited to their wedding ;)

About the Couple: How does one sum up Mark and Kendra? Mark is an industrial engineer but he's so much more: a best friend, an omelet maker, a dog walker even in the rain, a lover of pink shirts. Kendra is a woman, a nurse, a sucker for Anne Hathaway movies, a lover of dark chocolate and good wine. They're so lucky to have found one another. They live in Park Slope with their wonderfully silly dog Patsy.

About the Couple: Mark's a boy and Kendra's a girl. They got drunk, put their privates together, got along well enough, moved in together, and are now getting married because they're both almost 30. To be honest, getting a dog together was a WAY bigger commitment than this whole wedding thing. Like it kinda freaked Kendra out for a bit and they almost broke up, and then Mark freaked out that Kendra was so freaked out and they had a huge fight. But they worked it out and now that feels so long ago. They live in Park Slope.

About the Couple: Mark and Kendra are two human beings who found themselves adrift in the bustling metropolis of Manhattan seeking Another Soul to call home. It was an average night when they caught eyes across the dark, candlelit tables of some new speakeasy (HAHA who can keep track?), and after a few rosemary-infused vodka cocktails and hours of sprawling conversation that touched upon everything from philosophy to spirituality to Motherhood and beyond, it was apparent that they had found their Other. They can't help but feel that a Greater Being played a role in their chance encounter. They live and love together with their dog Patsy in Park Slope.

Draft 6, 12:40 AM
About the Couple: Mark and Kendra are two bad little feminists who are perpetuating the patriarchal and outdated tradition that is the modern American wedding. They're spending theirs and their parents' life savings on a big party instead of stashing that money away for something more practical, like a house or grad school or a baby or a car or just a really great vacation and they hope you'll attend even though it would save them a lot of money if you didn't. It's like $175 a head, seriously. They live in Park Slope in a one bedroom for $3,100 a month with their dog, Patsy, who they found out has diabetes and they have to spend $700 a month on dog medicine for that now. They hope you will attend their wedding and spend roughly $100-$200 on a gift, $300 on the hotel, and up to $500 on the flight since we're getting married Memorial Day weekend which is a really popular travel time. OH GOD
