he wedding ofJuliana Katzman and
David Lipschultz broke all the rules.
The invitation was blue. The dress had
big bold flowers, and the cake. .. it was
as high-caloric yummy mound of Krispy Kreme
doughnuts. And the marriage could write the
book on how to plan the wedding of blended fam-
ilies. Juliana's stepfather, Joel Tauber, walked up
the aisle to her, while her father, Robert
„. , ..
,, tzman, walked her traditionally down the
bimah. The extended bridal party included
eight parents, three siblings and five step-
siblings. "Everyone got along incredibly
well, said Juliana.
Juliana and David met on a chair lift in
Aspen where they currently reside, although
they will be relocating to Oakland County
in the spring. Together they co-produced
"The Week in Aspen" television program,
which won a Telly Award. They met through
mutual friends. "We have so many similari-
ties," said Juliana. The couple both moved to
Aspen the same week, lived in Spain, both sets
of parents separated when Juliana and David
were the same age and each has a Sephardic
grandparent from Turkey.
The ceremony was performed at
Temple Beth El on October 12, 2002,
followed by a reception for 350 peo-
ple at Franklin Hills Country Club.
There were no assigned seats and
food stations were set up for buf-
fet serving. "We never got off the
dance floor," added Juliana.
According to Shelley Tauber,
evening was magical."
