Happy Thanksgiving! As we all prepare to indulge, and to reflect on what we are thankful for, I am excited to share the wedding of my dear friends Igor and Yuliya. To use the classic opening line of most wedding toasts, I have known Igor for over 20 years. We’ve traveled through this American life together, sometimes in close quarters, sometimes at arm’s length. Igor, I’m thankful for your friendship, and I could think of no greater honor than to be able to document your day of marriage to Yuliya. Tonight, as we sit among friends and family, I think it’s only fitting to recall and celebrate that sunny October afternoon at Congregation Beth Am. Through the efforts of many talented friends and devoted family, as well as the organizational ju-jitsu of Miracle Events, your wedding was…well…magical. I can only hope that health, wealth, and good fortune are in the cards for you both! Mazel Tov!!
