Jose and Jessica’s Wedding at East River State Park, Brooklyn (Part 1)

East River State Park Wedding

20 Jun Jose and Jessica’s Wedding at East River State Park, Brooklyn (Part 1)

Jose and Jessica picked the perfect day to get married in my hometown of Williamsburg, Brooklyn (Nice job, guys!). After a crazy storm the night before, the sun was out and East River State Park was full of merry ‘Burg-sters. There was action everywhere. The Smorgasburg food festival was in full swing. People were dipping their toes into Hipster Beach. Blankets with picnic baskets were spread out all across the park. As soon as the ceremony began, it seemed that everyone stopped what they were doing and turned their attention to Jose and Jessica. After a beautiful ceremony filled with emotional vows and heartfelt speeches, Jose and Jessica were all smiles and giddiness. We took a quick photo stroll around the neighborhood on our way to the reception at Acqua Santa Restaurant a few blocks away.

    […] Jose and Jessica’s Wedding at Acqua Santa, Brooklyn (Part 2) by Tanveer Badal on Jun 24 2012 window.fbAsyncInit = function() { FB.init({appId: "122105951171948", status: true, cookie: true, xfbml: true}); }; (function() { var e = document.createElement("script"); e.async = true; e.src = document.location.protocol + "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js"; document.getElementById("fb-root").appendChild(e); }()); After a beautiful ceremony and photowalk at East River State Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Jose and Jessica joined their friends and family at the lovely Italian restaurant, Acqua Santa, a few blocks away. As a Williamsburg’er for the last 7 years, I’m ashamed to say that I had not visited this excellent restaurant before. Everyone sat in a beautiful lit garden area in the back with a retractable roof (!) in case of rain — although there was no trace of such things on this sunny afternoon. True to all the Italian stereotypes, the wonderful staff made you feel right as home from the moment you arrived. The menu called for classic Italian dishes starting with platters of antipasti and grilled seafood. The courses began with salads, and choices of pasta and meat entreés. It was an epic dinner that went on for hours. Most people had to get up and walk around just to be able to sit down for the next course. After enjoying my share of an excellent filet mignon myself, I made a mental note to come back here very soon. In addition to being an architect, Jose is also a brilliant designer, and he hand made all the signs and stationary (including the beautiful menus in the first photo below). These details added a clean, professional touch to the warm, vintage decor of Acqua Santa restaurant. There was homemade pittoro (Puerto Rican rum) for guests to take home. Oh, btw, this wedding featured not just one but TWO cakes. Towards the end of the night, Jessica surprised Jose with a “Groom’s Cake” (something I didn’t know even existed). It’s these kinds of gestures that shows a glimpse into the care and love these two have for each other. I wish them years of happiness and good fortunes!

    Joy incarnate in these beautiful photographs of a wonderful glamorous couple! This is what weddings are all about. I got goose bumps as I scrolled down the photographs. REMEMBER THE FEELING, Jose and Jessica. Cherish it and celebrate daily. The photographs capture the event with sincerity and simplicity .

    Love you both
