The Wedding Album
Audrey Puente and Jay Thompson

Peter White Studio
September 18, 2004


Which aspects of your wedding made it undeniably yours?
It wasn't a formal sit-down; we wanted a high-energy cocktail party. We walked up the aisle to Alicia Keys's "If I Ain't Got You," and down it to Mary J. Blige's "Love No Limit," Jay's favorite. We karaoked our wedding song. Jay had been practicing it in his car, so we nailed it. Instead of flowers we used specialized colored lighting and candles.

As Tito Puente's daughter, music must have been crucial to your wedding.
My dad's orchestra reunited just for my wedding. The White Room, where we were married, was converted into a turquoise-lit club lounge, where the D.J. played club music.

Anything go awry?
The remnants of Hurricane Frances hit New York the morning of. As a weather forecaster, I thought it was only appropriate. The Copacabana, which was right across the street, came to the orchestra's rescue when it was missing a keyboard cable. That was the only time I panicked.
