LAURA VETTORETTI & ANTHONY TAGLIAFIERRO
July 16, 2016
FROM LAURA: I can’t pinpoint the moment I met Tony, but I definitely remember the moment I fell in love with him. We were out on a date for Valentine’s Day, and neither of us wanted the night to end. Sparks truly flew, and about a month later, I was sure I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. Our wedding theme was classy and elegant with an added element of sparkle. I love sparkles, but I also wanted the decor to exude elegance, class and, most importantly, romance. I think we were successful with that. Our colours were gold, black and white, along with pink accents from the florals, and the bridesmaids all selected their gowns in shades of gold, champagne or rose gold. My grandmother gave me aquamarine earrings and a matching ring for Christmas this past year, which I incorporated into my look as “something blue.” She received them as a gift for her wedding almost 65 years ago in Italy, so they’re truly precious as family heirlooms. I am so lucky to have worn them on my wedding day—they really completed my look. The short yet romantic walk home as newlyweds was the perfect end to the night. The hall is only about 200 metres from our house, so my new husband and I walked home hand in hand in our fancy clothes. If the neighbours had been up they would have thought we were crazy, but we were just two lovebirds starting our marriage off right.
