Names Erin May and Richard Hobson Live in Queen Anne Occupations She’s a communications manager and owns Hobson House, a design business; he’s a mortgage broker How they met He’s from England, she’s from Washington; they were both in New York when they met by chance at a restaurant Where they got engaged He rented the 410 Room at El Gaucho and proposed in front of their parents Number of guests 150 Wedding budget They started with one, but stopped keeping track along the way Décor theme An eclectic carnival wonderland inspired by Tim Burton movies like Big Fish, James and the Giant Peach, and Alice in Wonderland A nod to the old country During the cocktail hour they served Pimm’s Cups, gin-based drinks popular during English summers Dessert A buffet included hard candy, cupcakes, fruit pies, and a red velvet wedding cake Favorite ceremony moment The stage was darker than anyone had anticipated, so the best man took a candle from a floral arrangement and held it over the officiant’s notes during the entire ceremony, almost burning his fingers If they knew then what they know now They would have planned for the reception to go longer How the day was different than they had imagined it After choosing the perfect gown and waiting a year to wear it, she couldn’t wait to get into a dance-friendly cocktail dress The day in three words Theatrical, whimsical, wondrous Honeymoon A church blessing and reception in Richard’s hometown of Sheffield, England
