Sheldon H. Savitz, son of the late Harry and Gertrude Savitz, and Stephen J. Simon, son of Lillian Simon of Union and the late Fred Simon, were married Sept. 4, 2016.

Rabbi David Dunn Bauer performed the ceremony at The Grove in Cedar Grove.

Mr. Savitz did course work at Syracuse University and received his bachelor of science from SUNY College at Buffalo. A former vice president of conference communications and creative services at MetLife in New York City, he is owner and principal of OnPoint Event Communications, an event production and communications firm.

Mr. Simon graduated magna cum laude with an accounting concentration from Boston University and is a certified public accountant. Now retired, he was formerly director of finance with Carter-Wallace, a consumer products and pharmaceutical firm in Cranbury, and, most recently, has been working with special needs students at West Orange High School, where he was a founding adviser of the Gay Straight Alliance. 

The couple, who met 34 years ago at a Shabbat service in Washington, DC, resides in West Orange and Miami Beach.
