Lisa and John’s wedding day was, in a word, spectacular. They spent each moment in some of New York City’s most iconic locations, full of beauty and brimming with a vibrant history. They saw each other for the first time in the magnificent Church of Saint Paul the Apostle; spent their first moments together as husband and wife amongst the vivacious crowds in Central Park; and finally, danced the night away on the rotating dance floor at The Rainbow Room, amidst the floor to ceiling windows, glittering crystals, and epicly grand city skyline.
Yet nothing could outshine Lisa and John themselves. They couldn’t take their eyes off of each other, and neither could their guests. The pride was palpable during each speech, as loved ones spoke about Lisa and John, their incredible career accomplishments, infectious senses of humor, kind and giving spirits, and the fact that they found their perfect fit. Together, they share a warm, inviting, fun-loving energy, an openness, and it sweeps up anyone who happens to be lucky enough to know them.
This was especially evident when Lisa surprised John with a song, and it proved to be one of the most breathtaking moments of the day. Her good friend, Elise, also an extraordinary singer, joined the band to belt out Etta James’ “At Last.” It is difficult to decide which moment was more moving: John’s face, first overcome with emotional shock, then awe, when Lisa revealed her surprise, or the dance itself, classically beautiful, as Lisa and John prepared for their lives together, spinning on top of the world with all who matter to them.
