January Proves a Big Month for Local Icon, Russo’s On The Bay, Selected as a Top Pick Among New York Brides on WeddingWire and The Knot


January 24, 2012
; Howard Beach, NY: Russo’s On The Bay is pleased to announce the company’s selection as a 2012 ­­winner in The Knot Best of Weddings, a special section in The Knot New York magazine and on New York Outer Boroughs Weddings from The Knot (NYSE: XOXO; www.theknot.com), the number-one wedding resource that’s most trusted by brides.
The Knot Best of Weddings 2012 provides a “by brides, for brides” guide to the top wedding professionals across the country, and is a must-have when it comes to selecting the best-of-the-best wedding resources. From New York florists and Seattle bridal salons to DC makeup artists, engaged couples will find detailed feedback on local wedding businesses reviewed by thousands of newlyweds who had great things to say.
Our brides have spoken and they are all saying the same thing – service, quality, and exceptional attention to detail never go out of style. Regardless of our economy or the trends in weddings, our brides choose us because they want the best and we are going to continue to provide the same level of excellence for many years to come,” says founder, Frank Russo, Jr. Russo adds, “This has been an amazing year and we are still ramping up for our official 25th Anniversary Celebration. As time goes on, we will be doing even more to help our brides have the most incredible experience possible on their wedding day. We are fortunate to be a part of our newlyweds’ most treasured moments and whatever brings them to us, whether waterfront views or food or the garden, we can only hope that they continue to come back and celebrate life’s most special moments with us.

Russo’s On The Bay is riding the wave of an incredibly exciting and successful 2011, and the announcement could not have come at a better time. In 2011, Russo’s announced its 25th anniversary, new menus, hiring expos, an exclusive bridal event (video available online), and new Web launches in 2011. This honor comes just days after the announcement of Russo’s On The Bay as a top choice for brides on WeddingWire.com, receiving the WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Award.  The prestige of both honors is derived from the fact that local brides and grooms  take the opportunity to provide honest feedback of their favorite wedding providers. Both The Knot and WeddingWire select their top picks solely based on reviews from recent newlyweds.
Russo’s On The Bay will be featured on The Knot Regional website and reviews that led to the pick are available to members of the website at The Knot’s website here. The reviews of Russo’s On The Bay that led to its win are available on WeddingWire.
