F a l l | W i n t e r B R I D E 2 9 Ages: He's 35; she's 30. Occupations: He's a physician and she's a public-relations account manager. Engagement story: Dan proposed on Elizabeth's birthday while the couple was vacationing in Boston. Wedding guests: 120. Ceremony and reception: The Sons of the American Revolution's Genealogical Library and future museum in downtown Louisville. Rabbi Joe Rapport ofciated the ceremony. Entertainment: DJ Charlie Chan Soprano. Personal touches: "We both come from Russian Jewish families, and showing our heritage was important. We incorporated certain traditions in our ceremony but also worked with our amazing caterer to add cul- tural touches to the menu." Decor: "Because the event was intimate in size but in a large industrial space, we had to plan carefully on how to segment the space to accommodate the ceremony, dinner and dance party. Sweeping 18-foot-tall drapes covered the space and created the necessary partitions. Taking advantage of the beauti- ful time of year, we incorporated more than a thousand blooming cherry-blossom branches, striking anemones, roses, hydrangeas and peonies. To add a modern touch, we used silver birch linens, chrome chargers, black chiavari chairs and luxurious silver satin pads. After dinner, we led guests outside to view Thunder Over Louisville, which was the same night. While everyone was outside for the freworks show, the ceremony space was transformed into a dance foor and lounge area with modern sofas and custom up- holstered pillows." Flowers: Lauren Chitwood with Marti Heard. "Lauren built us an amazing chuppah made with birch branches and cherry blossoms. Dan lived in DC for many years, so the fowers also paid homage to his time in the city." First dance song: "Bones" by Michael Kiwanuka. One disagreement: "Dan wanted our dog Dop- pler to walk down the aisle. That idea was vetoed." Really glad you: "Had the best team of wedding professionals and perfect weather."
