A Traditional Jewish Wedding at Greentree Country Club in New Rochelle, New York
For Emma Goldman (26 and a nonprofit human rights professional) and Michael Goldberg’s (28 and a lawyer) wedding, it was all about Jewish tradition and their guests—all 320 of them. "The whole night was about bringing all the people we love most together and getting to party,” Emma says. They went with the Greentree Country Club because it could accommodate their large guest list and used a pretty palette of purple, white and blue to tie together all the details. But as Emma puts it, the best part about Jewish weddings is the food, and theirs was no different. Guests had their pick of Mexican, Middle Eastern and American menu options (which also happened to include an amazing hot dog bar). Beyond all the great food, Emma and Michael’s favorite moment of the night was the shtick (a Jewish wedding tradition where guests entertain the newlyweds). “There was juggling, headstands and a magician who pulled money out of her mouth,” Emma says.
