Colin Jost Officiated A Wedding in Philly and Scarlett Johansson Was There

Seems Philly has more than just a Tina Fey connection to Saturday Night Live. Emmy Award Winning SNL Producer, Erin Doyle who hails from the Philadelphia area and on Saturday Night she married the love of her life Sam Shechtman, who has ties to Philly as well having worked at PWC and the Sixers. Friends tell me they met in Philly as well.

A lot of SNL Folks were in attendance including Ken Tola, Co head writer SNL, cast members Aidy Bryant, Ego Nwodim, Michael Che and Beck Bennett; as well as actors Ben Sinclair, known for High Maintenance and popular personality Shep Rose of ‘Southern Charm’ .

Recently Shep Rose was in the news when Vanderpump Rules couple Jax Taylor & Brittany Cartwright told Andy Cohen that Shep Rose was their worst wedding guest because he did social media at their wedding sharing stories and photos on his instagram in real time. Thankfully Shep hasn’t curb his insatiable need to share those special moments and last night he did just that at Erin and Sam’s wedding… (Thanks to my tipster that gave me the heads up in the middle of the night. Yes I got out of bed and put this story together at 3am.)

Shep Rose posted an Instastory about SNL fave Colin Jost officiating at Erin and Sam’s wedding at the Crystal Tea Room. Seems Colin also did a 15 minute stand up of the couple.

Erin, Colin and Shep go way back as friends. In another Andy Cohen interview, Colin revealed he and Shep bonded over surfing and became fast friends. Colin was already good friends with Erin and three friends would vacation together over the years.

Other notable guests who attended the wedding included actress Gina Gershon, comedian Peggy “Aunt Peggy” O’Leary, Joey Selden, Schuyler Sutton , Kiera Chambers and yes Scarlett Johansson was there celebrating alongside the Doyle/Chambers family. Friends tell me Scarlett was super nice, smiled the whole time, danced with Colin and interacted with guests. Guests dined on short rib, risotto, chicken stuffed with spinach and enjoyed a delicious wedding cake by Termini Brothers Bakery with vanilla icing and rainbow jimmies.

The band was Chevy Chevis Entertainment. If that sounds familiar, you might recall it was the same band who entertained at former SNL cast member Bill Murray’s son Luke Murray’s wedding to Kara Cassidy, who’s dad worked for the Sixers at the time, a time when the groom Sam Shechtman did as well. (A story I broke as well as Bill Murray skipped the Emmy’s to attend his son’s wedding.)

Or maybe Bill Murray made the suggestion to Erin directly.

The wedding rehearsal was held at the Reading Terminal

Cheers to a fantastic new chapter in your lives Erin and Sam !!

In this video you can see Scarlett Johansen, Colin Yost stand up as cast mate Aidy Bryant pumps her fist in the air.

Oh one last thing, here’s Erin with baby Doyle Shechtman back in November. The sheet to the left has info on the 11/16/19 show starring Harry Styles. Interesting enough, the SNL re-run on Saturday night, during the #Shechtmate wedding was indeed this same show. Coincidence? Ironically today, Philly Style Magazine hosted their wedding show at Finley Caterers Crystal Tea Room. I was impressed how quickly they turned the room around as I know the wedding didn’t end til 2am. For more Wedding photos check out

Bill Murray In Philly For His Son Luke’s Wedding to a Philly Girl #Emmys2015 #SNL #Philly

Then there’s instagram 

I started getting texts and tweets from people Friday night. The first one was where he was eating dinner, but you know it is the very busy social season and I couldn’t get away to greet Bill. 

My bud Larry Giuffra texted me to say that he saw Murray in the Rittenhouse Sq area, I knew for sure Bill was here but why?  

When I got home from the Franklin Institute’s Vatican Splendor Gala I jumped on the internet and started to do some research. Thanks to the guy who DM’d me with the answer.

The next morning I tweeted  @iPhillyChitChat Bill Murray was spotted at Oscar’s Tavern the night before, and cringed when I saw I made an era in saying “why is he hear?” instead of here. Then the Philly Voice picked up my tweet, which is awesome except for that mistake – ugh. Twitter edit button please. But the tips started flowing in.

Bill was here to attend the wedding of his son Luke Murray (assistant coach of Xavier University), who was marrying Philly hometown girl

Kara Cassidy, former Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach University of Pennsylvania 2009 – August 2013 (4 years) and South Philly native and now working for ADP.

Basketball runs in her family, her dad Fran Cassidy is Vice President, Premium Seating at Comcast-Spectacor

How’d They Met: They met on a plane to Italy, his team was playing in Europe, she was going to recruit academic basketball Europeans. How random was that.

Before Murray headed over to Oscar’s for a nightcap, he attended the rehearsal dinner at the Acorn Club (actual set up before the dinner). Traditionally the grooms parents pay for the meal, and they did. I hear Bill was very generous with gifts for the wedding couple helping out with the most beautiful wedding to hit the Bellevue since Sabrina Tamburino Thorne‘s. He also paid for all the groomsman’s tuxes and rented out the 27th floor at the Bellevue Hyatt for bridal party preparations and rooms for the guests to stay.

Bill Murray stopped by The Palm restaurant at the Bellevue on his way to the reception.

Bill Murray on the right dancing to the introduction of the bride and groom song “Feels So Close” by Black Eyed Peas (Which was Tamburino/Thorne introduction song too), at the Bellevue Hyatt. Congrats to the Murray’s and the Cassidy’s, looks like it was an awesome time!!

 The name of the band at the Murray wedding:

Chevis Entertainment headed by Chevy Chevis (l), pretty ironic I’d say. They’re from NYC and the biz address – Rockefeller Center.

At one point Bill Murray jumped up on stage and rocked out with the band. One guest told me it was the best band she’d ever heard, and the Murray’s really know how to party. I say girl, they’re Irish, we know how to party.

Can we talk about this awesome dance floor installed at the Bellevue for the wedding.. It was placed on top of the wooden one that’s normally used.
