Allyssa Sirb & Zac Jaindl

September 28, 2019 at Rosecliff

We’re all familiar with the concept of love at first sight. But what do you call love that takes eight years to take hold? Allyssa Sirb and Zac Jaindl were first introduced in 2008, when Allyssa attended a party at Zac’s Pennsylvania fraternity during a weekend home from college. The two crossed paths in the ensuing years, but never shared more than a brief conversation until 2016, when they ran into each other again and decided to go on a date. That evening, Zac talked about his summers in Newport, and expressed a hope that Allyssa could visit someday. A few weeks later, they found themselves sharing a Memorial Day weekend in the City by the Sea. Not surprisingly, that’s also where Zac proposed two years later, in a private room overlooking the water at Clarke

He plans, too!

Given the role that Newport played in their lives, Allyssa and Zac agreed it should be the place where they wed. They also agreed that Zac should take charge of the planning. As a commercial real estate developer with a wedding venue in his portfolio, Zac was already familiar with wedding arrangements. So he did most of the research, narrowing down every decision to two choices, then presenting them to Allyssa for discussion. “All of the vendors were very impressed with Zac’s planning skills,” says Allyssa.

Dressing the Part

It only took a single visit to Rosecliff to convince the couple that’s where they should wed. Seeking a dress that would match the romance and grandeur of the venue, Allyssa settled on a matte satin gown from Kenneth Winston with a sweetheart neckline, fit and flare bottom and dramatic satin train. Zac opted for a bespoke midnight blue tuxedo from legendary London tailor Henry Poole & Co.

Full of surprises

At the ceremony, lush, flowing florals spilled from copper urns. For the cocktail hour, a performer wielding a saber sheared the cork off a magnum of champagne, producing a shower of bubbly. At the reception, table numbers were replaced with hand-drawn sketches of historic Newport estates. But the biggest surprise was reserved for Zac, who was largely raised by his grandmother. Anne Jaindl had not been able to travel in recent years, but when Zac stepped into Rosecliff’s parlor for a family photo, he found her there, waiting for him.

Where are they now?

After a stopover in London, the couple honeymooned in Seychelles before returning home to Allentown, Pennsylvania, where Allyssa is a speech therapist and Zac is founder and COO of Jaindl Enterprises.
