The Brooklyn-based couple hosted a traditional Jewish ceremony, followed by a magical soiree, at the Angel Orensanz Foundation, one of the city's most glamorous event spaces."I first noticed Jesse at a birthday party," says Stefanie. "It wasn't until months later that we were finally introduced. The rest is history." The bride's Chantilly lace mermaid-style gown, by Kenneth Pool, was purchased from The Wedding Salon of Manhasset. "My favorite moment was when Jesse and I walked into the reception--to the song 'Jessie's Girl'--and they announced us as husband and wife," says Stefanie. "It was finally time to stop wedding planning and cut loose!"
