Matchmaker, Matchmaker! Wedding at the Hotel Carlyle.

This past January, I was thrilled to shoot a wonderful wedding for my longtime client, Sarah. Over the years, I have photographed both her son's bar mitzvahs as well as other family events.

The affair took place at the elegant Hotel Carlyle on the Upper East Side (where Woody Allen and the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band play every Monday night).

In keeping with this musical theme, iconic actor and singer Theodore Bikel gave a private performance during the reception including a rendition of "If I Were A Rich Man" — which he originally performed in Fiddler on the Roof in 1967. The whole room was enraptured, to say the least. It really was a treat! 

Special thanks also goes to Catering Manager Kevin Huang, who created a lovely day for two terrific people.

The celebration ended with a stunning cake and edible favors of colorful butterfly and bird-shaped cookies supplied by Eleni's New York.
