Wedding Party

Meet our friends & family who will be walking us down the aisle!

Hannah Rachel Weiss

Maid of Honor

She climbed onto the kitchen counter to get teddy grahams from the snack cabinet while Leah distracted the babysitter. They were partners in crime at a very young age and the Weiss sisters are thick as thieves today and always. Worth knowing: Leah & Hannah refer to each other as “brother” which started as a joke & never died down. To avoid any confusion, neither of them have a brother, they’re referring to each other 🥰😂 Just Go With It!

Steve Vasyuta

Best Man

In 1997, Steve left Brooklyn & moved to Fairlawn. He had long luscious locks of hair, a full beard/mustache, rode a BMX bike, and had a ton of crazy stories from his life in BK. To this day, Alex still speaks of his best friend’s wild arrival in the late 90s.

Julia Rotenberg

Matron of Honor

Alex’s older sister Julia was born and raised in the Soviet Union, moved to America at the age of 17, and taught herself English faster than humanly possible! This, and her skill in off road biking 🚴 caught the attention of NYU where Yula became a freshman less than 6 months after the Finkelshteyns landed in the US of A!

Steve Miller

Groomsman

Miller is the reason Alex, Gali, and Tal became fraternity brothers in Chi Phi at Rutgers. He may be 6’4 but don’t let his height scare you, Miller is THE nicest person coming to this wedding! :)

Julia Libby Shell

Bridesmaid

Leah interviewed Jules back on Wall Street over a decade ago and insisted Julia (Leah’s soon to be best friend in the world), be hired immediately. While their days as colleagues in finance are long gone and their nights out drinking dirty vodka martinis are far and few between, Leah vows to uphold her reputation as the one who gets Jules into trouble 😂 for as long as they both will live ❤️

Gali Davidi

Groomsman

Dasha Kotcherga

Bridesmaid

When Dash & Leah first met, Dasha wasn't old enough to legally drink and may have needed a fake ID to join the girls on their nights on the town. Who would have thought that practically 15 years later, they'd be planning their weddings at the exact same time & reminiscing of the "good old days" when they were young free-spirited kids in their 20s.

Tal Borovsky

Groomsman

Michelle Shikhel

Bridesmaid

Alex's childhood friend Dave, also in the wedding party, found THE most amazing woman (Michelle) to be his wife. Leah & Michelle became close friends shortly after having met through the guys and while they're not blood-related, they passionately agree on absolutely everything. Naturally, this includes how much they adore each other :)

David Shikhel

Groomsman

Simona Bank

Bridesmaid

While her Russian is arguably better than the groom's, Alex's first cousin (Simona) was not actually born in the motherland. And, although the bride met this beautiful American girl just a few weeks after Alex & Leah started dating, she's been secretly planning this party ever since ;) Such a maladietz!

Michael Rotenberg

Groomsman

Michael is Alex's brother-in-law but most importantly is the person responsible for introducing a little Russian boy to American Rock & Roll! Not only did Michael clarify who sang such vonderful song "Vee are the champions" & "Vee vill rock you" but he gave Alex his first cassette tape, none other than Queen's News of the Day!

Hanna Hirsch

Junior Bridesmaid

Hanna may be the youngest member of the bridal party but if you're lucky enough to speak with her, you'll quickly understand why family members are competing with each other to be Hanna's BEST friend!

For all the days along the way
