Alix + Tony | Galleria Marchetti

During the ceremony, at least 10 trains flew by and stopped the priest from speaking. Also, both a lady bug and a butterfly flew onto Alix during the exchange of vows… Very much an outdoor wedding experience.

When the lady bug landed on my eyebrow, Tony reached over to brush it off. That was right during our vows. The priest made him repeat aloud, “I promise to keep the bugs off you all the days of our life.” Loved his sense of humor!

Another favorite moment was our first dance, which our favorite singer/songwriter Brendan James performed for us. He sang Lucky Ones and we had taken dance lessons to practice dancing to that song but couldn’t remember a single move so we just swayed back and forth and sang along to our jam!
