Janet and Michael's Wedding at 70 Park Avenue Hotel in Manhattan

We weren’t able to meet ahead of time, because Janet and Michael came from Maryland for their NYC destination wedding, but I felt like I knew them already because of the great time we had on the phone. They had also send me a photo - of them on their honeymoon in Hawaii - yes, before the wedding! Anyway, the initmate ceremony, which took place in a beautiful suite at the 70 Park Ave Hotel in Manhattan, was a delight to do, since the couple, each in their own way, showed real  affection for each other. Sometimes life experiences make for a more powerful moment, and this was one of those times. The couple had discovered their guitarist, Hanan Harchol (also a successful visual artist), when dining at Tavern on the Green in Central Park. He regaled us with skillful renditions of a wide variety of songs from Bach to Neil Young - including “To Make You Fell My Love” by Dylan, which was a special treat for me. Jerry Grigory promised me a photo for this blog, but he has to return home to Hawaii, his home and more regular location for wedding photography.  (Look for that here soon.) Finally, Inga Taper and Jazmin Callazo from the hotel were attentive and worked hard for the guests and wedding party, and were very professional. Note well couples marrying in NYC, this is one of the few available, really nice, indoor venues for a small party!
