Erika and Emmanuel chose a Raleigh, North Carolina Moroccan restaurant called Babylon for their ceremony and reception spot. The venue's brightly colored interior and exterior definitely complemented the fun vibe of the day! Wedding decor included wedding flags decorated with hearts and flags that read "Yay" and "Huzzah," and Erika and Emmanuel carried their own "Mr. and Mrs. Emmerika" flags.

The wedding party wore TARDIS blue socks, dresses, bowties, and shoes in accordance with the couple's Doctor Who fandom. After the ceremony it was on to nomming on a Plants vs. Zombies topped cake. Afterwards, Mr. and Mrs. Emmerika took a private trip to a local hamburger joint.

  6. COOKOUT!! OMG! I moved to NC about 11 years ago, and Cookout is one of the best things about this place. Their milkshakes are the freakin' bomb.
