David and Michael tied the knot during a Jewish wedding ceremony held in a New York City synagogue the couple helped to found. White and purple flowers provided the decor for the day, and the couple wore deep purple yarmulkes. Guests were asked to wear navy attire to the wedding.

The reception space was decorated with colored lighting and tall white floral arrangements. Guests enjoyed a sit down meal at round and rectangular tables decorated with burlap table runners, and accented with lavender and pale pink florals and wicker chargers. Appetizers were served buffet style and two cakes were available for guests to choose from. The dance floor was packed all night, and Michael and David danced the traditional Hora surrounded by friends and family.

From the photographer, 5th Avenue Digital: Michael and David are founding members of Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, the first LGBT synagogue in New York City. Michael and David were the first to get married in the new building and sanctuary, and waited until its completion to have their wedding. There was not a dry eye in the house for this glorious ceremony.
