Summer for the City – Celebrate Love: a (re)Wedding Photos
Weddings are one of our great community rituals. They remind us of our commitments to each other and the undeniable power of love. After two years of having our collective rituals diminished by the pandemic, Lincoln Center invites 500 couples and their guests to celebrate love once again. This is a special day for newlyweds, those whose weddings were canceled or diminished, and people who want to recommit their love to their partners and the city we love.
Directed by Ellie Heyman, the day consists of a memorable group celebration with a symbolic, multicultural ceremony in Damrosch Park, complete with words of inspiration from Reverend Dr. Jacqui Lewis, Imam Khalid Latif, and Rabbi Matt Green and live musical performances, emceed by comedian Lea DeLaria. The ceremony concludes with a unity ritual. The evening culminates with a reception and “second dance” on the dance floor at The Oasis, designed by Clint Ramos.
