Jeni “McKenzie” Cummings, daughter of Scott Cummings and Mitzi Galloway Gray, married Adam Dominic Nikpour of London, England in the United Kingdom Friday, Jan. 25 in New York City.
Following the ceremony, a celebration was hosted at the Beekman Hotel, followed by a seated dinner at the Carlos Suarez Casa Nela restaurant, Bobo. Embracing a French county setting and set in a 100-year-old townhouse in the heart of West Village, the gathering was enjoyed by family and friends near and abroad. Parents of the groom, Sharem and Sandra Nikpour, and brother of the groom, Alexander, arrived from London. Other London guests included Alex Platts, Sophie Dean, Jacob Reynolds and Naomi Snider. Shardae Mazzeo and Gawin Fernando arrived from Syndey, Australia; Mike and Sarah Berry from Houston; and Stephanie La Testa from Hoboken, N.J., was joined by siblings Ethan Gray, Kendall Cummings and Cody Cummings.
McKenzie was given in marriage by her parents, Scott and Gretchen Cummings and Gary and Mitzi (Galloway) Gray. She was escorted by her father and she wore a pristine crepe winter white gown. The soft, lovely line was sculpted from the bateau neck to the floor-sweeping hemline. A band of shimmering beads encircled the waist for a classic, elegant and timeless detail. Her silk tulle cathedral veil attached to a half-crown headpiece, topping off her elegant yet simple ponytail. She carried a hand-tied bouquet, beautifully composed of white roses, white spray roses and mixed foliage, arranged by Casey’s Flower Studio in West Village.
The bride graduated from Louisiana State University and was a member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority. She serves as a manager for video and podcast content at Spotify in Manhattan. She is the granddaughter of Dr. and Mrs. Richard Galloway of Natchitoches and the late David M. Cummings of Kerrville, Texas, and the late Marcia Cummings Hulick of Houston.
Adam has enjoyed a thriving career in the music industry and has been employed by private music labels, as well as the Sony Corporation. He serves as a technical account manager for Spotify in London. Following a honeymoon to Grenada, the couple will make their home in New York City.
