New York, NY //
Gabe and I were married at the Rainbow Room in New York City on March 18, 2018 surrounded by friends and family. As New York City natives, we wanted to choose a venue that would be both meaningful, but also convenient for our families. After our engagement, we quickly settled on the Rainbow Room, as it was the location of our second date and our first kiss. My aunt had also been married there in 1993, where I was a flower girl (in a Kleinfeld dress!), so the place felt like it was meant to be.
We spent the day getting ready with our families at the St. Regis hotel. Our bridal party was just our siblings, so the day was calm and quiet. But when Gabe and I first saw each other in the Ballroom of the hotel for our First Look, we knew that the day would be perfect. Our wedding ceremony began with a small ketubah signing while our guests filed into Bar 65, where our formal ceremony would take place. As the sun set over the ceremony, our rabbi, who I’ve known since I was a baby, brought laughter and tears to our guests. Sealed with the breaking of the glass and a kiss, we moved to the cocktail hour overlooking the NYC skyline. After dinner, our guests danced the night away, with the dance floor literally spinning below us.
