Lisa Loeb’s wedding was full of laughter and tears as the singer-songwriter exchanged vows with Roey Hershkovitz on Saturday in front of 275 guests at Manhattan restaurant Brasserie 8 ½.
In an exclusive interview and photos, Loeb, 40, and Hershkovitz, 30, music supervisor for Late Night with Conan O’Brien, share the details of their wedding with PEOPLE.
“We took turns laughing and crying,” says the groom of the 30-minute Jewish ceremony. Adds Loeb: “I had to have my makeup redone!”
Wedding planner Amy Shey Jacobs turned the restaurant into a cozy winter wonderland, with all-white florals, tiny porcelain deer figurines and a fireplace logo projected onto the ceiling.
“Roey proposed to me in front of the fireplace at the Maritime Hotel in New York,” says Loeb of her engagement last November. “We wanted people to feel they were coming in from the cold to a warm and festive atmosphere.”
“It was a perfect night,” adds the singer, who planned her wedding in less than two months. “It was great to see everyone so happy, and I’m thrilled with the way it all turned out.”
