Alana Eve Berman-Gnivecki and Martin Moritz Solomon are to be married June 17 in Sheffield, MA. Aurora M. Katz, a rabbinical student and cousin of the groom who received permission from Massachusetts to solemnize the marriage, is to officiate at the home of Edith Cooper and Jed Horowitz, also cousins of the groom.
The bride and groom both work at Kolbo Fine Judaica Gallery in Brookline, MA. She is the gallery manager and he is the e-commerce manager.
Ms. Berman-Gnivecki, 29, graduated from Emory and received a master’s degree in elementary education from Boston University.
She is the daughter of Mary Jane Berman and Perry L. Gnivecki of Oxford, OH. The bride’s mother is an associate professor of anthropology at Miami University in Ohio, specializing in archaeology and museum anthropology of the Caribbean. The bride’s father is a lecturer in anthropology at Miami University, specializing in the study and research of the Lucayans, the original inhabitants of the Bahamas and the first inhabitants of the Americas encountered by Christopher Columbus. Together, they coordinate a field school in the Bahamas where students learn archaeology while conducting research on the Lucayans.
Mr. Solomon, 30, graduated cum laude from Tufts.
He is the son of Dr. Judith F. Katz and Dr. Dean Solomon of Watertown, MA. The groom’s mother retired as an assistant professor of radiology at Tufts University Medical School and the chief of ultrasound at Tufts Medical Center, both in Boston. His father, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, is a founding partner in Southeastern Psychiatric Associates, which has offices in Cambridge, MA, in Randolph, MA, and the Dorchester section of Boston.
The couple met in 2014, when a mutual friend who thought they should meet took them out on two chaperoned pizza dates in Brookline.
