Nyack, NY - Former Chabad Hassid and Jewish reggae sensation Matisyahu married his fiancée Talia Dressler in late-May.

The private backyard wedding was made public by Daniel Zamir, a close friend of Matisyahu, born as Matthew Paul Miller.

“I have traveled to many concerts and many places but it is rarely as exciting as playing at the wedding of a best friend ...” Zamir wrote on Facebook on Monday. “I got to play Matisyahu’s first wedding 16 years ago and today I’ve come to New York, New York to play again at, God willing, his last wedding! Good luck to the young couple and to all of the people of Israel with them!”


Zamir posted a video of him playing Od Yishama, a tune often sang during Jewish wedding ceremonies, specifically after the new couple descends from the chuppah. Zamir, an Israeli-born saxophonist has preformed with Matisyahu, and played at his first wedding.

Matisyahu, divorced in 2014, was first married in 2004 to a different woman named Talia. They have two sons, Shalom and Menachem Mendel.

Around the same time as his divorce, Matisyahu shaved off his locks and beard, shocking many of his fans.
