"Vera Wang's own wedding was a brilliant white-tie affair at the Pierre, with four hundred guests, Hank Lane's twenty-two piece orchestra and an endless flow of caviar and Cristal champagne."|
"Brides Made" by Dodie Kazanjian
"In a ceremony rivaling D-Day for secrecy, 200 friends and family members gather here today to see Maria Cuomo, the governor's 25 year old publicist daughter, marry Kenneth Cole, a Manhattan shoe designer...|
The bride and groom will dance together for the first time as husband and wife to the tune, ‘Looking Through the Eyes of Love.' And for the dance with her dad, Maria has chosen ‘Bridge Over Troubled Waters' instead of the traditional ‘Daddy's Little Girl.'
The couple has hired Hank Lane to conduct a 10-piece orchestra for the wedding and dinner reception in four tents set up on the (governor's) mansion lawn. The Lane orchestra also will play at a reception in two weeks at Tavern on the Green for the many friends the couple could not accommodate at the wedding."
