Lior and Ran met on a blind date through a friend in their homeland. Since these two grooms live big + busy lives in Israel, they craved a tiny wedding in New York with Ran’s brother and sister-in-law. Plans were made, plane tickets bought and course was set directly for New York City.
Lior is a full time makeup artist and Ran, a physician in a hospital. With schedules like theirs, they needed to keep it simple. After a five minute City Hall ceremony with their wedding photographer (aka me) and two family members, they enjoyed a luxurious lunch at Bouley. Chef David Bouley took good care of the grooms, sending out course after course of food from a special menu made just for them.
The four shared a sumptuous lunch with dishes named things like “forager’s plate” and “apple foam mist.” Instead of cutting a cake, the grooms shared spoonfuls of soufflé + home made fruit ice cream.
Lior said, after their fifth course, with three more still to come, “Now, this is the way to get married.”
