For Heather and Mark, there was lots of falling. There was falling in love. There was falling snow. And there was falling hearts of those who have no idea about a love like this one. They were married in February on a snowy, but crisp day in New York. Heather and Mark did not want to walk around outside in the snow prior to their wedding, so they arranged for beautiful portraits inside The Ritz Carlton hotel before heading to their wedding venue, The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers.
Heather and Mark are a quick to kibbitz couple with a sense of humor and a happy glow about them. Chuckles fluttered the ceremony when Heather tried to put on Mark’s ring. It didn’t go on without a fight, so Mark quipped to the guests, “Sorry I appear to be bloated!” which was met with laughter from all who attended. While they were wrapped in their tallit, Heather was almost hysterical with laughter as their rabbi sang the Prayer of the Seven Blessings to the tune of “I Had the Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing. They also put a little spin on the tradition of breaking the glass: Heather, not Mark, broke the glass at the end of the ceremony!
Mazel tov, Heather and Mark!
