Real Weddings

Details of the day:

Giancarlo and I were joined by 275 guests at St. George’s Antiochian Orthodox Church and a reception at The Rockleigh. The wedding colors were gold and burgundy. The theme was “An Affair to Remember” with a regal twist. Our first song was Strangers in the Night.

My gown was a princess dress made by Reem Acra and named “An Affair to Remember.” I revolved the entire wedding around that same concept. It was a memorable, regal wedding, and our “R” crest represents Rosselli, Rockleigh and Regal.

My favorite part:

Our custom-designed crest that can be found throughout the wedding: on the runner, the stationary and the ring bearer’s pillow. Also, as a nod to my husband’s favorite soccer team, AC Milan, the groomsmen wore socks that match the team kit.
