Jenna + Giovanni : Terrace On The Canal Wedding

Wedding Weekend – Day 2 of 2 <3

When we first met with Jenna and Giovanni so that we could get to know them and learn about their wedding plans, two things kept running through my mind during the meeting:  1. This is going to be the coolest wedding ever.  2. How come we aren’t friends with these people already??  Both Jenna and Gio have this rare combination of character traits, they are incredibly warm, caring, and humble, while also having amazing taste, killer style and super strong creative vision. They are those people you meet once in a blue moon, that you just feel completely at ease with right away and you want to be besties. Once we had the opportunity to meet their friends and family on their wedding day, it became instantly evident that we aren’t the only ones who felt this. Jenna and Gio’s magnetic personalities have drawn a wide circle of support and love around them, and around their beautiful loving relationship with each other.

So, what do you do when you want to have an intimate wedding ceremony, but also wish to honor and celebrate all of those meaningful relationships? You throw a 2 day long affair, and get the absolute best of both worlds.  We are so pleased to share day two!


We asked Jenna and Gio to share a few words about the day:

“It was truly special to celebrate our marriage with all of the people we love and cherish. We are so grateful to have so many incredible people in our lives. Each one of them holds a special place in our hearts and has created a lasting impact on our life.

The best part of our wedding day was to see our guests getting to know each other and to see them having a great time! We wanted our marriage celebration to be fun and to share all of the things that we love (especially that Shawarma Palace garlic sauce) with the people we love!”
