Melissa & David, August 25; The Lighthouse
Melissa and David were lucky last Saturday to have a beautiful day. Although the sun was a bit too hot for some, their arrival at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers had them looking as cool and relaxed as if getting married happened every day.
The bridal party arrived at Chelsea Piers close to 5:30 after a few stops for photos and spent the next hour touching up, taking photos, rehearsing the ceremony and signing the Ketubah.
When it came time to go down the aisle, Melissa had her bridal walk down perfectly and Dave eagerly awaited her under the Chuppah. The Rabbi led the intimate ceremony that concluded with Dave breaking the glass and joyfully kissing his new bride.
The events of the evening were coordinated masterfully by Randall the banquet event manager at Pier Sixty along with planner Tom Desmond from Tom Desmond Weddings. Highlights included the festive horah, non-stop dancing, three toasts, the mezinka, guest photographs by NYC Photobooth and great covers by the Kenny Ford band from Hank Lane.
