On a beautiful day in April, the 6th of 2023 to be precise, Cristina and Tony celebrated their love in an unforgettable way. The historic Howey Mansion in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida, served as the perfect backdrop for their timeless and elegant wedding ceremony.
The story of Cristina and Tony is one that brings a smile to anyone’s face. Their paths crossed thanks to Cristina’s best friend, now her bridesmaid. If it wasn’t for her, Cristina might never have met Tony. But meet they did, and the connection was instantaneous. They bonded over shared adventures, love for food, and the joy of each other’s company.
Their love story took a fairytale turn during a trip to Europe. Tony chose the romantic city of Paris as the setting for his proposal, right in front of the dazzling Eiffel Tower. Cristina had always dreamt of such a dreamy proposal, and Tony made sure it was everything she had imagined. Even now, recalling the proposal brings a tear to Cristina’s eyes.
The couple opted for a Tuscan-themed wedding with earthy colors, including champagne, sage, and ivory, setting a warm and romantic atmosphere. Cristina wore her mother-in-law’s wedding ring on her right hand, a touching gesture that spoke volumes about their close-knit family bond. Tony wore a boutonnière charm with his mother’s face on it, keeping her close to his heart on this special day.
Their ceremony unfolded on the gorgeous front steps of the Howey Mansion porch, with the historic mansion serving as a stunning backdrop for their vows. Their florist created a breathtaking floral arch that added a touch of whimsy to the classic setting, used beautifully for both their ceremony and reception.
During the cocktail hour, the couple surprised their guests with a professional poet who penned customized poems for each guest, adding a unique and personal touch to their celebration. The reception was held in the lush green space at the back of the venue, where the weather was nothing short of perfect.
As the evening progressed, Cristina changed into a stunning reception dress, radiating elegance and joy. The couple shared a delicious slice of cake, and then it was time for everyone to hit the dance floor. With their friends and family surrounding them, Cristina and Tony danced the night away, creating memories that would last a lifetime.
Cristina and Tony’s wedding day was more than a celebration; it was a testament to their inseparable bond, their shared adventures, and their timeless love story. We wish them a lifetime of happiness as they embark on this new journey together. Here’s to Cristina and Tony, a couple whose love story is as beautiful and timeless as they are.
