Val and Zack's Wedding, Hotel Kabuki

Valerie and Zack had an amazing wedding on January 17th at the Hotel Kabuki.

Like any extraordinary wedding, this one began with an extraordinary couple. Above and below: Valerie.

Val and Zack had a traditional Jewish wedding, that began with kabbalat panim, - "welcoming of the faces." Bride and groom remain separate, and spend time greeting their guests.

Meanwhile, (above), Zack was at his own reception, presided over by two rabbis.

After the ceremony, it was time to celebrate!

I love this photograph of Valerie and her dad.

We stole away for a few quick portraits.

But made it back in time for the cake cutting.

I loved this wedding so very much. Thanks, Val and Zack, for giving me the honor of being a part of it.
