Each Monday, we choose the most interestingly Jewish announcement from that Sunday’s New York Times Weddings/Celebrations section. This week, it’s that of Rachel Nance and Chaka Wade, who were married Saturday at West Point by friend of the couple (and former ESPN The Magazine editor-in-chief) Gary Belsky, in “a ceremony that incorporated Jewish and Baptist wedding traditions.”
The bride is the daughter of the late Jim Nance, who was a running back for the Boston Patriots from 1965 to 1971 (before they became the New England Patriots) and later played for the New York Jets. She works in marketing at InStyle Magazine. The groom, a graduate of West Point, served in the Army from May 1992 to August 1997 and was last stationed in Augsburg, Germany. Mazel tov to the happy couple!
