The Wedding Album
Denise Cante and Jason Tanz

Tribeca Rooftop
April 30, 2004

       
 

What was it like to be married on a Manhattan rooftop?
You could see everything from the Hudson to Chinatown to the Empire State Building - and New Jersey. You wouldn't think of Jersey as the perfect romantic backdrop, but it was.

Is there any significance to marrying on April 30?
It's Beltaine, a Celtic fertility holiday. Our officiant performed the ancient hand-tying ritual and read, "These are the hands that will hold your first children and that will comfort you when you're old." There wasn't a dry eye in the house.

How else did you customize your ceremony?
A friend read a passage about that French guy who walked on a tightrope between the World Trade Center towers. There's a romanticism, a spirit of optimism, to him that we respond to.

 

 




 

  I bet you had too much fun to eat at the reception.
The Tribeca Rooftop assigns you a personal maître d' for the evening. Every time I turned around, he was like, "More champagne?"
