Our wedding is one of many milestones we were fortunate to experience together.
Your love story
We met through a mutual friend who insisted on setting us up. The night we met, we ended up leaving the group we were with to catch a show, just the two of us. Fast forward two years later, Tony surprised Cristina with a proposal on their front porch.
What did you both wear?
Tony opted for a gray suit with suspenders, which is similar to his daily style. Cristina chose a Temperley London gown because it was both comfortable and classic.
What venue did you choose?
We chose the Cordelle because it had an intimate look and feel. The outdoor/indoor space was versatile, which was important since we hosted both our ceremony and reception at the venue.
Was the day how you imagined?
We had planned to have our ceremony outdoors, which we both understood meant it would likely rain (that's our luck!). Our day was perfectly rainy, including a downpour at the scheduled time of our ceremony. and we wouldn't have had it any other way. The entire night was filled with family, close friends and great food, drinks and music. We closed out the night to Prince's "Let's go crazy", which was a fun way to begin our new journey together.
What advice would you give to other couples?
There are so many different types of weddings and different ways to do things. Do you. Don't feel pressured to include something in your wedding just because "that's the way it's supposed to be." The way it's supposed to be is the way you envision it.
Where did you go for your honeymoon?
We chose to take a short trip to Miami right after our wedding so we could decompress in one of our favorite cities. A few months after the wedding we celebrated in the British Virgin Island, which we chose so we could enjoy the ocean.
