a real-life wedding THE SEQUEL The couple jetted to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon, enjoying thrilling new adventures. They explored with dune buggies, swam with dolphins and toured by mega truck, an experience that Lorenza found mega-scary because of the massive vehicle manoeuvring on very narrow roads. On their wedding day they laughed when their family and friends gave their speeches. “We basically laughed the whole day because we were so completely and utterly happy.” What Lorenza loves about Salvatore: “I love that he is genuine, loyal, so trusting and completely honest. I also love that he is so family-oriented.” What Salvatore loves about Lorenza: “There are so many qualities that I love about Lorenza. She makes me smile and reminds me of how beautiful life is with her presence.” Lorenza’s advice to brides: “Take time to enjoy the day, look around, and savor the atmosphere.” Salvatore’s advice to grooms: “It’s actually life advice. I want to share that I’m still learning that every day is a learning session.” The best piece of marriage advice came from family and friends. “Try things together and show interest in your partner’s hobbies, thoughts and studies.” WE Bride’s Gown: Angelina Faccenda from Jolie Bridal | 416.651.6777 Hair: Viva Hair Studio & Aesthetics | 416.654.0001 Bridesmaids’ Gowns: Bari Jay from Jolie Bridal | 416.651.6777 Groom’s Suit: Acappella Clothing | 416.654.3552 Flowers: Bloomers Florists | 905.371.2067 Rings: Christian Hasler & Helen Kim Creations | 416.975.5474 Venue: Gracewood & Kurtz Orchards, Niagara-on-the-Lake | 905.468.2937 DJ: A & J Entertainment | 416.520.5185 Ceremony Music: Nick Cuda Music | ncuda@rogers.com Wedding Planner: Designing Events | 416.505.5742 Photos: Fig Photography | figphotography.ca | 289.217.1919 100 Wedding Essentials 2013
