A Bridal Shower for Shqipe

In less than three weeks, my personal executive assistant, Shqipe Berisha, and her fiancé, Zenel Lulanaj, will be married - we’re all so thrilled for the happy couple.

Last weekend, I attended Shqipe’s bridal shower at the Eastwood Manor in New York City. The celebratory gathering included 60 of Shqipe’s closest family and friends, some of whom traveled all the way from Kosovo in southeastern Europe. The event was steeped in Albanian tradition, showing Shqipe in several costume changes that displayed elaborate gold covered vests, skirts and pants as well as customary handmade handkerchiefs and jewelry. It was a very special day - everyone, especially Shqipe, had a wonderful time.
