Fourth attempt is a charm! Suzan and Gary Saidman of Atlanta announce the marriage of their son David Michael Saidman to Natasha Mao, daughter of Ching-Sheng Mao and Sonia (Huey Ching) Lu of Taipei, Taiwan.
David is the grandson of Mildred Kinbar, currently of Atlanta, and the late Milton Kinbar, and the late Rose and Harry Saidman of Washington, D.C.
The couple was married in a virtual Zoom ceremony in their living room in Framingham, Mass., Oct. 8, 2020 by Rabbi Cherina Eisenberg. The virtual ceremony followed three previously scheduled ceremonies at two different venues in Rhode Island and Massachusetts that had to be cancelled due to those states’ pandemic restrictions.
David graduated with a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering from Rice University and a master of science in aerospace engineering from Georgia Tech. He is an aerospace systems engineer at Raytheon Technologies. Natasha graduated with a bachelor of art in history from Northwestern University and a master of fine arts and doctorate in Italian Renaissance Art History from Rice University. She is curatorial interpretive fellow, Arms and Armor, at the Worcester Art Museum. Natasha is also an international salsa competitor.
