From Bride Bri: “In 2011 (we were still in college then), Vince attended a wedding at Palazzo Verde and he very much wanted to show me the place. But since it was exclusive to its clients, we had to pretend to be getting married the following year. Who would’ve thought that eight years later, we would actually end up tying the knot in this Italian-inspired venue? It’s definitely meant to be especially since we’re now currently based in Italy!”
First off, how did you two meet? “We attended the same university and entered the same college in 2008. Vince joined a dating game organized by my college organization. After the event, we were introduced by a common friend and we instantly clicked.”
What kind of emotions did you (or your husband) feel throughout the day? Was there one particular moment that was very special to you?
Groom Vince: “It was a mix of excitement and anxiety. I was very excited to marry the girl of my dreams and at the same time was worried if the whole event will run smoothly. Luckily, Bri planned the whole event well and everything exceeded our expectations. Of course, exchanging our I dos was the most special part. Finally sealed the deal!"
Bride Bri: “I wanted to focus on the fact that I’m marrying the man that I’ve always prayed for, and just the thought of that brought me a sense of comfort and calmness all throughout the day. One moment that I found so special was the part where my husband and I drove home together – as husband and wife – after celebrating with all our friends and family.”
Describe your wedding - how long did it take to plan? What colors did you use? “We only had eight months to plan everything after our engagement in November. We mainly researched and did the transactions online since we didn’t have the chance to go home until one month before our wedding. Our chosen colors were navy blue and marsala.”
Any advice for current bride-to-be’s planning their wedding? “Our advice is to read reviews and do your research to ensure that you get the best deals and the best suppliers. And on your special day, just remember to enjoy every moment of it and focus on what matters the most: you finally get to spend the rest of your days with the love of your life.”
