Talia Mizikovsky and Aaron Jordan were married on August 27 at Flowerfield Celebrations in St. James, Long Island. Rabbi Joe Wolfson of the NYU Bronfman Center was the mesader kiddushin. The kallah, daughter of Esther Chalom of Englewood, is the director of Jewish Student Life for Hillel of Northern New Jersey. After the Moriah School and Frisch High School, Talia graduated from Williams College with a B.A. in religion/Jewish studies.
The chatan, son of Gerald and Claudette Jordan of New York City, is a student in the NYU School of Dentistry. After graduating from Beacon High School, he received a B.A. in chemistry and psychology, with a certificate in German, from Williams College.
Talia said their relationship has always had a powerful sense of bashert. They met as students in Williams College, at the homecoming party. “We couldn’t have been more different at the time, but Hashem kept placing us in one another’s path… and Aaron was very persistent!”
Flowerfield Celebrations was “a bit of a trek,” Talia said, but worth it for the gorgeous outdoor chuppah on the lake and the indoor greenhouse where the reception was held. “The wedding felt like an enchanted garden.” Main Street Florist created flowing centerpieces of garden roses and dahlias. Talia wore a blush tulle ball-gown by Casablanca. Steven Meisner of Meisner’s Gourmet Catering “was the most helpful caterer we could have imagined!” Music was provided by the Nafshenu Orchestra. Morris Antebi was the photographer.
Talia said it was a special privilege to be able to celebrate with the Hillel of Northern New Jersey students (for some it was their first Jewish wedding). “We feel incredibly blessed to have found each other and are looking forward to the adventures, challenges and journey ahead of us.”
The couple is living in Englewood, New Jersey.
