Christina & Tom | Wedding in Portovenere
How did you meet We met on the plane, on a business trip to Asia. We sat next to each other on that flight, and then found out we work in the same company and only 100ft apart from each other’s office. It was “almost” love at first sight, we knew we found the one shortly after we started dating.
The proposal He proposed to me on our first vacation together. It was in Maui Hawaii. It was a big surprise for me, it was only a few months after we fell in love with each other.
Why you chose Italy and Portovenere for you wedding Italy is my favorite country. We both like Italy very much. I discovered Chiesa di St. Pietro in Portovenere in my summer vacation in Cinque Terre a couple years ago. Felt in love with the place immediately. And I said to myself this is the place I want to get married at in the future. Then a year later, we got married there.
The wedding day It was a beautiful day. Storm just passed by the town the day before the wedding. Sunny but windy. That’s how some of the pictures turned out to be very nice in the wind. We stayed at the Royal Sporting hotel, 15mins walk from the Church. My bridesmaid and I were 45mins late to the wedding, we walked and almost “ran” to the church. Along the way, people were cheering and telling us auguri, very sweet. Everything just seem to go by so fast, the ceremony, the reception and the boat ride. Yet, the memory is still clear and vivid in my mind. It felt like it was just yesterday. Beautiful, romantic, love. There was a rainbow by the end of the day, when we were on the boat ride. It’s in Angelo’s picture.
The dress It’s a grecian, romantic style. I thought it matched well with a seaside town like PortoVenere. Our color theme is purple. We had purple tulips as my bouquet.
The funniest thing that happened During the ceremony our priest forgot to say “now you may kiss the bride”. My husband had been waiting for that moment, and he stopped him in the last prayer and reminded him…
What moved you most During our dance I stepped on my husbands’ feet when we dance. And then my mother-in-law thought we were so cute together and couldn’t stop crying.
Your love song We have two. 1) Shostakovich’s waltz #2 2) Bruno Mar’s “Just the way you are”
Love is… Love to me is eternity, unconditional, unchanged, deep from the heart.
