A Love Story 30+ Years In the Making

Some love stories are worth a bit of a wait, but how about 30+ years? In this case, oh yes, still totally worth it. Because when it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. And for these Harvard grads, their mutual love of their alma mater – and plain old fate – came into play and so they joined their lives together with this intimate, winter wedding. The Groom couldn’t keep his eyes off his leading lady and Carolina Rivera captured it all. Head to our Vault to see all the magic and read on for one love story not to be missed.

From Carolina Rivera Photographer… A winter wedding in the warmth of the mahogany wooden walls, accented by the sparkle of the golden chairs, set the tone for this intimate wedding at the Harvard Club in NYC. But the story is one to remember. Beth and Joe, both incredibly intelligent and talented, went to Harvard years ago, in the same graduating class, but never actually met… until years later when they both attended a Harvard grad event, and after marriages, children, and life happened in between, their destinies finally came together on this day.

Their wedding was set in the location where their Harvard histories would combine. With a beautiful speech by the Groom, Joe, prior to his Bride’s entrance, a traditional chuppah and glass breaking to commemorate Beth’s Jewish heritage, the presence of their children and their families, and a close personal friend and Harvard classmate officiating, this wedding was surely one to remember – along with a special aria and piano performance for the Bride’s ceremony entrance to set the tone. Beth and Joe danced their first dance, to “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You”, a beautifully choreographed and performed dance, as Beth was once a professional ballet dancer who turned now to a practice of Aerial yoga (and in her 50’s I might add!). The night continued with plenty of mingling, laughter, and dancing, as Beth and Joe did not want to miss one single minute of their evening with friends and family. Beth’s friend Michael Weiskopf and his band The Complete Unknowns, a Bob Dylan cover band, performed.

The beautiful couple were even featured in the New York Times Vows column that tells their story even more!

Sunrise at the Brooklyn Bridge and nestled in Central Park during the sunny summer afternoon. This adorable couple took a ride on the row boat at the Central Park Boat House as they shared their love. Maggie kept her makeup and hair simple, elegant and whimsical. Her pink two piece dress was custom made just for her! We cannot wait for this couple to come to the west coast this fall for a beautiful destination wedding at Greystone Mansion!
