Last year, our talented Weddings by StarDust team designed and planned an over-the-top Italian celebration for fun-loving Jenna and John. This past November, we got to see the event come to fruition in fabulous fashion. Jenna hails from a large New York Italian family, and while John is not Italian, family is very important to him, as well, so they wanted their reception to resemble a very large family dinner party. We developed an over-the-top Italian feast atmosphere with a color palette of ivory, blush and gold, and full of incredible Italian food, lush, aromatic flowers and lots of fantastic music. You see, Jenna is a country music singer, so really good music was vital to their celebration. Bella Flora knocked the stunning floral out of the park, and the dance floor was packed the whole night, thanks to The Jam Wows and Marcus Rollins. Photographers Jenny and Eddie Martell were on hand to capture all the great moments. Here are some of them – feast your eyes on this!
Jenna looked simply gorgeous in her YSA Makino gown. We love that lace with the subtly colored liner!
Mother of the Bride (MOB) Joanne looked nearly as stunning in her VM for Mori Lee black lace gown.
The traditional Catholic Mass Ceremony was just lovely.
We love this twist on the guest sign-in!
The Four Seasons was the perfect location for this beautiful reception!
The cake so pretty! We still adore monograms!
Groom John is a filmmaker – check out his cool cake!
The lighting, linens and floral were so sophisticated and striking!
The specialty sweets table was a huge hit!
Aren’t they just adorable?! We love seeing our couples so happy!
The Jam Wows brought it!
Off to Bora Bora with a sparkler sendoff on the Four Seasons golf cart!
