NEW YORK – In an atmosphere of joy, happiness, and excitement, the wedding of Alexandra Psaros, the beloved daughter of prominent businessman and philanthropist Michael Psaros and his wife Robin, to Robert Goldburg, was celebrated on May 20 at the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center in New York City. A wedding reception and dinner followed at Cipriani South Street, the prominent Manhattan restaurant and catering hall.
According to ‘Our Story’ on the ‘The Knot’, the young couple met online: “Robert and Alex swiped right in December 2017.”
“After their first date, sushi at Balducci’s, Alex drove away and the two never stopped talking,” the Knot continued. “From there, they gave long distance a shot and Alex visited Robert at GW [George Washington University] – not once, but five times in four months. Nonie [the bride’s maternal grandmother, Joan Goldberg] was Alex’s first call at the airport after Robert asked her to be his girlfriend – she was thrilled that Alex was dating another Goldburg.”
“Five years later, their love is infectious with never a dull moment,” the Knot reported. “Robert and Alex are best friends, partners in crime, and soulmates.”
Robert surprised Alex on February 25, 2022 and proposed at the Edition Hotel in the Flatiron district of Manhattan. The romantic proposal was followed by an incredible engagement weekend, surrounded by the couple’s closest family and friends.
The black tie wedding on May 20 included Greek Orthodox and Jewish ceremonies with family and close friends only attending the ceremony at St. Nicholas WTC after which the entire wedding party joined everyone at Cipriani South Street for the Jewish ceremony.
Alexandra is a Marketing Manager for NBCUniversal and a graduate of Syracuse University with a Master’s degree in Communication and Media Studies from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
Robert is an MBA candidate at New York University’s Stern School of Business and previously worked in Finance & Operations at NBCUniversal. He is a graduate of GW and one of the founders of the Equal Education Fund, a 501c3 registered non-profit in Washington, DC that helps high school students prepare for success in college through academic scholarships and a mentorship program to break the barriers between transitioning from high school to university.
