I am SO excited to share this wedding today! What a perfect way to end the wedding season with this couple.
I met Joanna and Lorenzo last year through one of my brides, and I could just tell what a special couple they are! (And not because they’re Italian!) When I photographed their engagement last year in the city, their love for each other and their joy just spilled out. I was so excited for their wedding day, and had no idea just how beautiful it would be.
Their wedding took place at the beautiful FEAST at Round Hill in Washingtonville. Their day was filled with personal and unique details, such as the beautiful gold shoes Joanna designed online, her stunning rose gold jewelry, and a sweet gold cake topper. Since Joanna and Lorenzo live in New York, he gave her a bracelet with a subway map on it, and she gave him cuff links with the map too
When they read their notes from each other, they couldn’t hold back the tears. The same sweet moment came after their first look, when Lorenzo saw his bride for the first time! I could hardly hold the tears back too just watching them!
Their ceremony took place indoors in the beautiful room that also held their reception. The Renaissance-style decor fit so well with their Italian families! The toasts were filled with laughs, their first dance filled with tenderness. And of course their family danced the Tarantella! It’s a traditional Italian dance that is always part of the wedding celebration
You could see how much love that Joanna and Lorenzo share, and how much fun they had with their close family and friends! At the end of the night, they saw a few romantic snow flurries, which couldn’t have fallen at a more perfect time.
I hope you enjoy the story of their day!
She designed her own shoes! Aren’t they beautiful?
Joanna’s dad gives his wife a gift each time one of their daughters gets married! So sweet…
Lorenzo even wrote Joanna’s parents a note!
He’s ready to see his bride!
LOVE this cake topper!!
