Plants vs. Zombies, wedding flags, and tons of TARDIS blue: a sunny North Carolina wedding #Wedding Porn#blue shoes#couples of color#doctor who#dreadlocks#north carolina#video games#wedding flag January 13 | Stephanie Kaloi Photos by: Carolyn Scott Photography Photos by Carolyn Scott Photography. 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. Vendors!
