Sami is my Jewish cousin. I am her Chinese cousin. She is my Dad’s best friend’s daughter. We are not blood related but we are family. On Saturday, October 29, she married Mike Marsh at The Palace Hotel (super fancy!) in NYC. It was a beautiful wedding.
Sami was a beauuuutiful bride. Uncle Ronnie and Aunt Cheryl were so proud walking her down the aisle.
Sami and Mike were calm and cool under the chuppah.
Their chuppah was so pretty.
Enjoying the cocktail hour. Those lamb chops are still melting in my mouth. I’m still dreaming about the oysters and crab!
Ka Ka and Bet looking so glamorous.
Sami finally makes it to the cocktail hour. Can’t believe she is married!
Artie made friends with a much much older couple so he could sit at their cocktail table near the bar and eat his food. He talked with his new friends for a while. About what, who knows. Finally was able to pull him away for a picture.
Chatting with my cousin Karyn and Aunt Alice.
Great picture of my Dad and me. He didn’t think he would fit his tuxedo, but he did. He felt so skinny that day! He is wearing his new modern trendy glasses. I almost don’t recognize him!
We miss Ka because she lives in Sacramento, CA. Hopefully she’ll move back to the East Coast one day.
A family picture in the dining room.
The newly married couple and their first dance.
The wedding challah. The waiter didn’t like such close contact to the bread and wheeled it away after this picture.
It’s time to party and things are starting to get crazy.
Drunk and confused.
I should have worn black to fit in with everyone. Or maybe they should have worn color to not be so boring.
Kimbie and her boyfriend Mike.
Matty and my Mama.
My Mama and me. I think she hung out at our table all night to hide from my Dad who really wanted her to dance with him. No matter what my mom says, he’s really a romantic guy.
Can you believe this is Bet?!
We didn’t even need to go to the dance floor to dance and sing.
You could barely fit onto the dance floor. What a great party!
Michael (Sami’s brother) dancing to Michael Jackson. Look at him strut his stuff. Love it!
Love was in the air for more then just the wedding couple. Go Uncle Ronnie and Aunt Cheryl!
The three boys that grew up together in the Bronx. Why is my Dad trying to take a picture while being pictured?
Finally got my husband onto the dance floor. I tell him all the time I would practice dancing at home with him to build up his confidence.
Their wedding cake was the moistest chocolate cake I’ve ever eaten.
The dessert was a million layer crepe cake and creme brulee. Delicious. The box of matches didn’t come on the plate.
My BFFTT Michael.
Sami and Mike, we had a wonderful time at your beautiful wedding. We wish you a lifetime of love, luck, and happiness.
