OnLove: Details of John Feketekuty and Joyce Yu's Wedding at Glenview Mansion

Sunday, August 30, 2009

John Feketekuty and Joyce Yu wanted their Aug. 15 wedding at Glenview Mansion to reflect both of their heritages. She emigrated from Taiwan; his parents are Greek and Hungarian. Their noon wedding was a reunion for college friends and an opportunity for their families to meet and celebrate.

The food: Catering by Uptown mixed cuisines from Feketekuty's and Yu's cultures. Spanakopita was passed during hors d'oeuvres; along with a roast, the lunch buffet also had Greek and Asian salads.

The ambiance: Guests wandered the grounds of the 19th-century mansion in Rockville's Civic Center Park as they sipped cocktails and ice water in the August sun. Yu's bridesmaids wore apple-red dresses, a color considered lucky in Chinese culture.

First dance: "B├ęsame Mucho"
