Andrea and Ben may have bonded over their Grateful Dead fandom, but their wedding was a far cry from psychedelic. OK, a Dead tribute band did serenade them, but roses and skulls were replaced by sunflowers and Andrea’s cascading waves. We don’t recall ever seeing a Victorian gazebo or Grecian wedding gown at a Dead concert either, though the Catskill’s Twin Lakes venue’s lawns could have parked a couple of beflowered old VW buses. Our wish for them: keep happily truckin’ on!

All weddings join two lives, but this one also joined two cultures. Mari and Aki are wine-tasting, marathon-running Americans but also heritage-loving Japanese. They met at NYU, and married a bit uptown, at White Plains’ modern light-filled Kanopi Restaurant atop the Ritz-Carlton tower. Shooting was a dream in the expansive windowed space, complete with winding staircase and sprawling views. We can’t take credit for introducing them, but we can for marrying them: we referred them to the officiating judge!
