A point of personal privilege ... As many of you know, my wife and I got married about a week and a half ago. And as those of you who've taken this step in life know, in addition to all the excitement and drama and feeling your life at your fingertips, there are also these mundane arrangements that have to be attended to -- a caterer, a photographer, getting everybody to the right place on time and making sure they get sent back to wherever it was they came from, and definitely in one piece and hopefully at a reasonable hour.
And then if all these people you hire or ask or beg to do this and that all come through, then you can concentrate on the joy and excitement and feeling your life at your very fingertips -- or rather sit back and let it all rush over you.
We had a small wedding - a few more than forty people in a private home. And we were lucky to have it all come off just as we'd planned, or rather, imagined it.
So I'd like to take a moment to recommend to you two people who made that possible -- our caterer and our photographer, both of whom came through for us in every way we could have hoped for. I'm not going to mention them by name - because that might be a mixed blessing. But if you or someone you know is looking for a recommendation for a wedding photographer, let me know and I'll put you in touch with someone whose work is second-to-none. And -- which is probably more likely -- if you have some event, large or small, that you need a caterer for in the greater New York region, drop me a line and I'll put you in touch with just the right person.
