And when love fits

Mr. Lippa and Mr. Bloch met in May 1998 in the lobby of the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater at Lincoln Center...Mr. Lippa said he was “instantly smitten” by Mr. Bloch. “I felt that magic thing you feel with someone who fits,” he said.


And here we have mixed traditions:

Cathlin Baker, a minister of the United Church of Christ, led a ceremony that included Christian and Jewish traditions at the summer home of the bride’s parents in Killingworth, Conn.

Here, too

Revens, who retired as the administrator of the Rhode Island Workers’ Compensation Court in Providence, officiated at a ceremony incorporating Presbyterian and Jewish traditions that was led by Anne D.
