It was during a trip to Croatia when Pawel popped the big question to Jessica.
“We were standing atop a beautiful cliff overlooking the city at sunset and taking photos with our friends when Pawel suggested we take one with just the two of us. As I was fixing my hair, I turned around to find him down on one knee, with the most beautiful ring in his hand. Of course, I said ‘yes’!”
When it came to the wedding, Jessica had her mind set on making it her own; full of personal touches and styling that hadn’t been seen before, and she certainly achieved it!
First, Jessica rented out a photo studio to allow her and her bridesmaids to get ready for the day. The gowns were all displayed on mannequins, there were a mimosa bar and a huge breakfast spread, and professional vanities where each girl had their hair and makeup done.
After the part-English, part-Polish church ceremony, the bridal party made their way through one of the busiest streets of New York City, stopping traffic along the way and buying hot dogs from a nearby stand.
For the reception, Jessica had a timeless and modern indoor garden theme. Heavy greenery, all-white florals with pops of black anemones and an abundance of candles helped to create that effect and left all of the guests in awe. After an evening full of laughter, dancing, impromptu chanting, and a slow dance to a special rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, guests were treated to a food truck waiting outside the venue.
Congratulations to the Jessica and Pawel!
