I realize that it was very poor planning on my part to schedule this board to post during the Olympics, so before I start, I need to make sure I say “Go USA!”. While I am an American first and foremost, both of my parents families are of Italian descent (my mom was actually born in Italy). Needless to say, Italian culture has always been a big part of my life. What I love most about my heritage is the love of family and good food—which, when it comes down to it, is the backbone of any good party. On the style front, Italian fashion and decor have this wonderful way of being understated and simple while being completely glamorous at the same time. What I have learned from my family is the importance of quality and simplicity— the perfect ingredients for a truly Italian wedding.
Thanks to the talented photographers and websites for allowing me to showcase their beautiful work.
