2 8 Fa l l | Wi n t e r B R I D E 2 0 1 5 Ginger Goss & Jim Marlowe Genuine in Germantown October 11, 2014 The Wedding of Jim and Ginger met in their early 20s while working at Heine Brothers' Cofee. They'd been together for nine years when Jim proposed on Christmas Day 2013. "I didn't think it was going to happen and it didn't bother me at all," Ginger says. "We were just settled into being together forever. I always made a joke that we were like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Ginger says she knew right away that the wedding needed to refect their blended persona since she and Jim were so established as a couple. Originally, she booked a large outdoor venue for the wedding, but it just didn't feel right. The couple ended up inviting 40 guests to their wedding ceremony and dinner at Eiderdown. "It's one of our favorite restaurants. It's walking distance from our house; we go there all the time," Ginger says. "It was the closest thing to having it at my own house." There's a similar story behind Ginger's dress: "I bought the frst dress, a black cocktail dress, at Sassy Fox," she says. "It was the perfect dress — it was alternative and sexy and I thought it would be good for a fall wedding. And I kept trying it on and it wasn't right. So a couple days before the wedding I was walking through the mall with my friend and we were in Forever 21 — the cheapest of cheap stores — and on their clearance rack, I think it was like seven or eight dollars, was the dress I ended up wearing." Special touches: • The couple used vintage postcards as RSVP cards. Along with their RSVP, they had guests place food orders ahead of time to keep things running smoothly in the kitchen on the wedding night. • Ginger and her mom hung the bride's grandmother's collection of mirrors on the brick walls at Eiderdown and decorated tables with vintage glass candleholders they'd bought from Tickled Pink Antique Mall. • During dessert, guests gave toasts. "Some read poems, some had the whole room cracking up, some made me cry, some talked about us as kids, others as friends, others as siblings. It was like seeing our whole lives refected in the words of those dearest to us," says Ginger.
