Daniel Kurzner Weds Tessa Shapiro in Williamsburg

dantessa1Daniel Ethan Kurzner (SHS ‘09) and Tessa Leigh Shapiro were married on May 11, 2024 at Weylin in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Tamara Wolfson (SHS ‘07), a hazzan (cantor) and the bride’s cousin, officiated the Jewish wedding ceremony.

The couple began dating in February 2018, when Tessa’s cousin & Dan’s friend Sarah Wolfson Butler (SHS ‘09), thought they would be a great match. Their relationship has been filled with great restaurants, adventurous travels, weekends on the North Fork of Long Island, lots of ice cream and bonding over their shared fandom for the New York Giants and the Michigan Wolverines.

In December 2022, Dan’s sister-in-law Julia Fishman (SHS ‘06) came up with the plan to throw a fake birthday party for herself to save the date for a surprise proposal. Dan proposed in Astoria Park, which is where the couple said “I love you” to each other for the first time.

The groom, 32, is a Strategy and Operations Manager at Google. He graduated from Scarsdale High School in 2009 and from Washington University in St. Louis in 2013, and earned his Masters of Business Administration from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business in 2020. Dan is the son of Wayne Kurzner, who is a personal injury lawyer in New York.dantessa2

She graduated from The Dalton School in New York City in 2012 and from the University of Michigan in 2016 with a degree in Biopsychology, Cognition and Neuroscience. Tessa is the daughter of Richard Shapiro and Lynn Usdan Shapiro. The bride’s father is a Senior Advisor at Excel Sports Management. The bride’s mother is the Senior Vice President of Ethics and Compliance and Corporate Affairs at LVMH.
