Their ceremony took place at O’Byrne Chapel at Manhattanville College while their reception was held in the beautiful ballroom of Reid Castle in Purchase, NY filled with Shakesperean decor and garden terraces all within this gorgeous castle. Reid Castle truly is for the princess bride…
Christina + Giani opted for a “first look” and our two photographers were there to capture the unforgettable smiles and tears on a cold Winter day.
Christina + Giani danced their first dance to “Speechless” by Dan and Shay while their family and guests joined them.
Their “love story” began in high school…Giani was a trouble maker in high school and how he likes to put it “a social butterfly”. Christina says due to his profound gift of gab, their teacher moved his seat right next to Christina, who says she was the quiet, rule-following student. Giani quickly struck up conversations with Christina, making her laugh throughout the entire class! Ultimately though, tables turned and Christina also had her seat moved. They became friends, were together on the weekends and attended football games where Christina was Giani’s cheerleader. But the real magic Christina says happened after their high school graduation when all of their friends went away to College and she and Giani stayed home and commuted to college. Giani would heroically drive her to school when it rained or snowed or when she pleaded. It was on their car rides to and from school their relationship grew. They finally shared their first kiss and the rest is now ten years worth of history.
