From Robert & Kathleen Photographers... When Boston native Rob saw Jackie for the first time, he knew had to get to know her. His friends were shocked that he was interested, he didn't know at the time that Jackie, a New Yorker, happened to be a Yankee fan. Normally a no-go for a die-hard Red Sox fan like Rob, but for Jackie he would make an exception. Their relationship started off slowly with light hearted jokes about the teams that eventually led to a first date. Soon they were inseparable. Jackie even moved up to Boston after college to be with Rob.
So, when it came time to plan their wedding, they decided to tie the knot in her home state - selecting Manhattan as the perfect backdrop to bring together their families. The ceremony took place right on the grounds of Battery Gardens, overlooking the Hudson River with the Statue of Liberty in the distance. For the reception, they moved inside to the Battery Gardens restaurant for a party that brought together all the charm of old-school New York in a modern, beautiful setting.
