{ jacki + steve | glen island harbour club | wedding }

Jacki + Steve’s New York wedding overlooking Long Island Sound, at Glen Island Harbour Club took place on a wonderfully windy winter day.

The couple braved the chill, while exploring the historic 19th century Glen Island Castle.

This beautiful landmark castle was built in 1879.

The castle originally built in Germany was shipped to the states then reconstructed stone by stone.

Earlier that day, the two readied at bride and groom’s suite’s in the Harbour Club.

The bridesmaids rust bouquets, were a welcome pop of color, in this black and white themed wedding.

And looked great with the brides white calla lily creation, by the Arcadia Floral Company.

The bride looks on as her bridesmaids help her ready…

Dad stops by for a quick kiss from his little girl…

Then on with the strappy gold sandals…

Followed by a bouquet delivery from her beautiful flower girl…

Mom assisted with the finishing touches as she put the veil on her daughter…

Then the girls looked out on the water, deciding whether or not it was too cold to venture out in their little black strapless dresses.

Meanwhile, over in the groom’s suite. Steve was reading the heartfelt card his bride-to-be sent over.

Then he and the boys got ready for the big day.

Once dressed and looking dapper, Steve posed for a portrait by the fireplace.

Jacki also headed out for some portraits of her own… but the cold proved prohibitive.

But not before, this dreamy windblown shot was captured.

On the backside of the club, the groom was waiting, with his ocean blue eyes, on the waterfront for the first look.

Steve and his brothers…

Were soon joined by the rest of the groomsmen.

The little ring bearers showed some love.

Mom straightened his boutonniere…

Then Dad and his brothers stopped for a quick formal…

as the girls came their way.

Here Steve awaits the big reveal…

He turns, for a kiss…

Then lifts his soon2b bride with joy.

As the bridesmaids look on.

Before heading back indoors, the bridal party cheers on one last romantic dip.

Here Dad shares a touching moment with his daughter, prior to the ketubah signing.

Once the ketubah was signed.

The groom veiled his bride… and adjourned to the ceremony.

The ring boys traveled down the aisle, with pillows in hand…

And the flower girl dropped petals in preparation for the bride’s much anticipated entrance.

Steve looked on as Jackie entered, escorted by her dad…

A tear filled moment followed, as the father of the bride gave his little girl away.

Rings were exchanged, as the lovely ceremony neared the end.

The newlyweds exited grinning ear to ear…

As guests were ushered into the lavish cocktail hour.

The two shared a toast with their cool signature drinks…

“Steve-o-mojito” meet “Kopf-mopolitan”…

The reception space, was windowed on all sides, and overlooked the water.

The wedding cake was a stunning, bowed creation…

And the super creative “hunt is over” groom’s cake, and custom statuette, would make the NRA proud.

After a series of fun entrances, the new Mr. + Mr. Alfano entered.

After the first dance…

The horah followed…

Wine was served…

The callah was cut…

Speeches were made…

Honor dances were had…

The band played…

and special young guests performed.

Then the Anniversary dance, gifted the bouquet to the oldest bride and groom in the room, as they shared a dance with the newlyweds.

Cakes were cut…

And an amazing dessert spread was set up.

Yummy!!!

The bride fed the groom some Italian pastry…

And the groom returned the favor, with a dipped berry, hand made from the chocolate fondue fountain.

As guests departed, they were treated to take-out-coffee and hot-baked pretzels for the trip home, while awaiting valet.

Still indoors, Steve made his way over to the white baby grand, and serenaded his new wife with a song… well, sort of.

Then the exited up the fabulous staircase.

For one last goodnight kiss beneath the moonlight.
