We had the pleasure of photographing Jacklyn and Bobby’s fun filled wedding over at Russo’s on the Bay in Howard Beach, NY. We’ve been working with this awesome couple since the beginning when we helped document Bobby’s surprise Central Park proposal to Jacklyn a year ago. We were extremely excited to photograph their big day and help share in the celebration of their love for one another. To start off, the guys and gals got ready in separate rooms at Russo’s. The gentlemen finished first and stepped out to take a few fun photos.
Jacklyn and Bobby did a private first look and reveal which we always love. The raw emotion is always spectacular. We took advantage of the gorgeous light and spent some time with the bridal party for some more photos on the grounds.
The beautiful and intimate ceremony was held in the Tivoli Room, officiated by a comedian-turned-officiant (Harris Bloom) who perfectly captured the love Jacklyn and Bobby share.
After a cocktail hour packed with great food options, it was on to the awesome reception. The couple chose lots of awesome details to make their reception unique and truly representative of the two of them.
Jacklyn and Bobby made their grand entrance from inside a hidden capsule (which rose dramatically from the ground) much to the delight of the crowd.
The rest of the evening was spent celebrating and was highlighted by lively music, dancing, fun games, and fantastic speeches.
Jacklyn and Bobby: we want to extend our congratulations to you both. Thanks for giving us the honor of photographing your proposal and wedding. Jacklyn gets extra props for her super organizational skills and Bobby must be the best-dancing groom we have ever had the pleasure to photograph. We wish you both nothing but the best.
