Like a chapter straight out of “The Wonder Years,” David and Jaclyn grew up down the street from each other. They saw each other often but it wasn’t until they grew older that they started spending quality time with one another. In fact, when this Classic New Jersey Italian gal and this modern-rocking Egyptian man began hanging out for the first time, they both fell quickly in love and have been in love with each other for six years since. When David made the decision to propose, he went for gold- bending on one knee at one of their favorite locations… the happiest place on earth… Disney World of course! And he did it all within the Magic Kingdom. She said yes and their wedding plans continued from there in true fairy-tale fashion, with a rocker twist that is.
Anyone that knows these two understands that they love everything to do with music, rock mainly, but there really isn’t a genre that they don’t like and they make sure to often attend most of the concerts on their top 20 list. So it was no surprise when their wedding theme also carried a strong rock-like influence. Their colors contained a rich flaming red, complemented with deep purple accents. Concert tickets were distributed to the guests as table placement cards and the couple’s Favorite albums were displayed in place of table numbers. Each table had one album, from “The Beatles” to My “Chemical Romance” and each was illuminated with a colorful display of candles, water vases and orchids for their center pieces. The entire performance was housed by the ridiculously gorgeous venue, “The Liberty House.” The Liberty House is located in Jersey City and over-looks the Hudson as well as the New York skyline. The view?… nothing short of Rockstar. Truly. Rockstar.
Converse were present everywhere and the boys had custom cufflinks made.
The Groom’s family was the os-so-talented artist behind the Wedding cake, a four-tier heavy metal silver-lined cake from, “The Gourmet Desserts Outlet.” And the Flowers were designed by: Natasha at “Blooms for You,” in Bayonne. A string quartet was used for the ceremony as well as the cocktail hour and they performed a variety of classic rock/grunge favorites. Oh, and their signature drink?… The Love Buzz (also a song by Nirvana)… naturally.
Their honeymoon location will ultimately be Italy and France but they’re taking a small break from all of the planning first before they go. In the meantime, congratulations again David and Jaclyn!
