A Snow Day Wedding in Vinegar Hill

The first big snowfall of the season arrived on the wedding day of Laura Becker and Jeremy Hirschhorn, both 31. Although “it did hurt our photo schedule,” says Laura, a sales consultant and founder of Recs.com, “we got beautiful pictures in the snow.” The couple, who met as co-workers at LivingSocial, liked Vinegar Hill’s 26 Bridge for its industrial feel and capacity to hold all 200 of their guests (they packed the space further with stations from Katz’s Deli and a barrel where fresh mozzarella was rolled). Laura requested that their caterers conjure a “Jersey basement party” complete with beer pong, burgers, and trays of Jell-O shots. At one point, Jeremy says, “I looked around for Laura, and there she was, in her full dress — doing a stage dive. I’ll forever have that image.”

“Even though we had a Jewish wedding, we played Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You,’ ” says Laura. “Best song of the night.” Photo: Loreto Caceres Photography
