Rebecca and Leon: Joy On The Upper West Side

Rebecca and Leon met at a kosher wine tasting at City Winery one day in early March. “I came with friends who dragged me, and he came because he likes wine. He started telling me the history behind the wine he was tasting,” said Rebecca. “He was very eloquent and charming and adorable.”

“That one glass of wine changed everything,” said Leon.

The couple who still share a passion for fine food and wine, married at the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue on an unseasonably warm December day later that year. Formal photos were taken in Central Park.
