Onteora Mountain House in Boiceville, NY.

Jeff performed acoustic guitar covers of “That’s the Way” by Led Zeppelin and “Waste” by Phish for the bridal processional.

The wind whipped the rainbow colored chuppah cloth, corners anchored by the hands of the Rabbi’s present, as Amanda and Jesse beamed at each other.  In a lovely tribute to the mystical number 7, the bride and groom not only circled each other 7 times, they had each of 7 different guests read one of the 7 blessings, to echo the cantor’s song.

THE DETAILS:  The tables in the pavilion were laid out with blue-green napkins over pewter linens, with white and pink orchid centerpieces incorporating river stones and soft moss.  Amanda looked amazing in her strapless gown!  I don’t think she and Jesse didn’t stop smiling at each other all night.

Beginning the night with an energetic hora, the pace barely slowed and the dance floor was packed as we moved from the Motown groove of the Jackson 5, the Supremes and Stevie Wonder all the way into A Tribe Called Quest and Outkast.

The newlyweds are off on a South American adventure honeymoon to Argentina and Colombia.  Thanks so much for inviting us to your big day, Amanda and Jesse!  It was truly fabulous.
