Jodi and Jared were married on a picture-perfect day at Waterside Restaurant and Catering in North Bergen, NJ. The dramatic Manhattan skyline as seen from the Hudson River was the perfect backdrop for their outdoor ceremony, which featured many lovely moments, including the traditional seven blessings as read by the couple’s aunts and uncles. The couple wanted their wedding to have a light and airy feel, and flowing Donna Morgan dresses for the ladies in shades of blue matched the sunny August skies and perfectly complemented Jodi’s Reem Acra gown from Kleinfeld Bridal. As the imposing skyline was visible from the venue’s floor to ceiling windows for the reception, Avenue Flowers & Gifts kept the centerpieces simple and low, with fresh white blooms. Jodi and Jared selected the band, Burnt Sienna, because they had caught their show at a local hotspot in Dewey Beach, Delaware, where they fell in love! The non-stop dance party was kicked off by the couple with a fabulous choreographed first dance, executed flawlessly right down to the “Dirty Dancing” style lift at the end! Every moment is captured beautifully by Cassi Claire!
