Larkfield Wedding: Jackie & Anthony

Jackie and Anthony couldn’t wait for their big day to come. To commit to each other for the rest of their lives and then dance with each other on the Larkfield dance floor. It sounded like a dream! Until that dream came true and surpassed their expectations. 

The bride and groom met, technically, on Match.com. However, as the story goes, Anthony messaged Jackie on Plenty of Fish and she ignored him. Luckily, they both signed up for Match a few months later and Jackie messaged Anthony. Talk about fate!

As for the proposal, Anthony wanted to make it special. Knowing Jackie’s father passed away on 9/11, he wanted to include him somehow. He felt weird doing it at the memorial so instead, he did some research and found a park that overlooks the memorial site. 

A few weeks prior to the proposal, Jackie’s brother moved into Manhattan with his girlfriend, giving them a reason to visit the city. 

When the day arrived, the couple headed into the city to see the apartment and then went out for dinner. On the way to dinner, though, Anthony suggested they go to the park where he got down on one knee. 

Which is how we ended up at Larkfield on this very special day!

For her wedding day, Jackie knew she didn’t want a puffy ballgown. She went searching for the right dress and came across a Vera Wang gown with puffy sleeves. She had the sleeves removed and created a custom bolero that she wore during the ceremony and cocktail hour. 

Anthony, on the other hand, wanted to be different, and knowing his color is blue, he went with a blue John Varvatos tuxedo. He stood out among his groomsmen in black. All of the bridesmaids wore Amsale hunter green gowns which went beautifully with the florals comprised of greenery, white, and hints of blue and pink.

During their reception, Jackie and Anthony chose to personalize a few elements. It is always important to make your wedding feel like you. Ensure it encompasses who you are as a couple and what values you share. For this couple, they had signs up to memorialize Jackie’s father. They told guests to raise a toast with his favorite, a Coors Light. 

Additionally, they had a Viennese hour with a dog treat table. It had a picture of Jackie’s family’s dog and you would not believe how quickly they all went. To top it all off (pun intended), the bride and groom had bobblehead cake toppers representing their favorite sports teams. For Jackie, Mrs. Met and for Anthony, the New Jersey Devils mascot.

Looking back, Jackie and Anthony’s favorite part of their wedding day, aside from marrying one another, was dancing with all of their loved ones and seeing what a great time they had. People raved about their wedding band for weeks and reminisced about the wonderful wedding.
