Our Love Story:
At the time, Jaclyn was living in Manhattan, NY and Dustin was living in Hoboken, NJ. Dustin went to law school with one of Jaclyn’s childhood friends, and through that same circle of friends, Dustin became involved with a breast cancer foundation that is near and dear to Jaclyn’s heart. The foundation is led by Jaclyn’s mother’s good friend who told Jaclyn that she had the perfect guy for her, so she gave Dustin Jaclyn’s number over email one day in May of 2014. That night he left Jaclyn a voicemail briefly mentioning how he lives nearby a few close friends of hers, and how her mother’s friend said that she might be interested in grabbing a drink sometime. To this day Jaclyn still has the voicemail saved on her phone, and it was played at their wedding! That Friday night she met him at a bar in Hoboken for a drink, and ever since then they have been happily together. They quickly realized throughout exchanging stories that they had been in the same place at the same time a few instances previously, but apparently it took them quite a few years to actually meet. Soon enough they moved in together in Hoboken, got engaged, and adopted a puppy named Frankie!

Planning Our Big Day:
From start to finish, our wedding was all about the little details! A lot of which honored the memory of Dustin (the groom)’s late mother. From her marquis diamond in my engagement ring, to the touches of lilacs throughout (her favorite flower), she was there watching over us. We even had a bouquet there for her, as well as her photo and photos of other family members who could not be with us on our special day. I also gifted Dustin a vintage Rolex watch from the year his parents were married so that he could have a constant reminder of the love they shared, and we hope to share the rest of our lives together.

My “something blue” was hidden underneath my Pnina Tornai gown with our initials and wedding date stitched onto the fabric in blue thread. My “something borrowed” was my sister’s veil from her wedding, and we also wrapped my bouquet in a piece of lace from my mother’s wedding gown from the 1980’s.

The best way to put our wedding style into words would be “Modern Gatsby”. Guastavino’s provided both an urban and modern feel, with a white pristine aesthetic on the first floor, and brick dome ceilings on the second floor built into the Queensboro Bridge. Every detail of our wedding combined a mix of metallics, geometric shapes, and even more obvious touches at the after party such as feather centerpieces and a Great Gatsby quote. “I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything” F. Scott Fitzgerald. Since we are big on quoting anything and everything, throughout our décor guests found classic quotes from movies and authors alike.

Falling in love in New York City is so special, and it made for the perfect backdrop on our wedding day. We even personalized our favors by handing out our favorite desserts from the area such as banana cream pudding from Magnolia Bakery, nutella banana cupcakes from Billy’s Bakery, cookie dough from DŌ NYC, and cannolis from Giorgio’s Hoboken.

We danced the night away sipping our signature drinks, lavender champagne and old fashioned cocktails. We laughed and cried during our family’s speeches and special dances, which included a clip of Dustin’s first voicemail he ever left me as well as our surprise choreographed father-daughter dance, and an emotional dance between Dustin and his sister. It will forever be the best day of our lives, and we have all of these unique and meaningful details to thank for that.

Advice:
Just know that when you look back on your wedding day weeks and even years later, you won’t remember anything that “went wrong.” You will only remember the warm ever-lasting memories that you made with your loved ones that day. And be sure to dance the night away! (You can relax on your honeymoon).
