the story

After asking Jayme’s parents for her hand in marriage, Josh and his bride-to-be’s family and friends spent months planning the perfect proposal for Jayme (unbeknownst to her of course!). It was about two years after their first date and the couple arrived at Jayme’s grandparents’ house in Queens where she thought they were celebrating her Nanny’s birthday. Upon entering the house, Jayme saw both of their families surrounded by flowers, candles, lights and decorations. Still in shock, she turned around, saw Josh down on one knee… and, as they say, the rest is history.

Having worked at various Abigail Kirsch venues for the past eight years — currently as a sales manager at Pier Sixty, The Lighthouse & Current — there was not a doubt in her mind when it came time to picking her venue. “We knew nowhere else could compare when it comes to food and service,” says Jayme, “Plus, the views at Pier Sixty are pretty spectacular!”

the style

“We went for a classic elegant theme, which paired nicely with our winter white décor and the black and white attire that the wedding party wore,” says Jayme. “We also made sure to include some comfort/winter food items in our menu, including the Crab Cake & Corn Chowder for the appetizer — which was amazing!”

memorable moment

“Seeing each other walk down the aisle and hearing each other’s wedding vows are certainly moments we’ll never forget,” says Jayme. “Also, having an array of every item from the cocktail hour set up for us in the bridal suite was a really great treat! This was really nice because we got a chance to sample everything before heading down to mingle at the cocktail hour. I knew this was something that was done for clients, but had no idea how much I would appreciate it as a bride!”

what guests are saying

“Everyone can’t stop talking about how beautiful the venue was and how the food was unlike anything they had experienced — especially the pretzel umbrellas and frozen margarita granitas that were passed on the dance floor. And they loved how the band kept people dancing all night long,” says Jayme. “When our guests ask me what it was like to get married at Pier Sixty, I tell them that we were 100% able to let go and be guests at our own wedding…and I think that’s quite an achievement for a bride who works at the venue where she is getting married!”
