Giovanna & Ian were married the last weekend of September at gorgeous Catherdral of St. Peter and Paul. The couple held their reception at the gorgeous Cafe Nuovo Rotunda, which is located in the Citizens Bank Buliding, in downtown Providence.
Guests enjoyed a plethora of amazingly delicious appetizers and were shocked to see the newlyweds arrive by gondola on Providence’s famous waterfire river. Such a unique feature!The night carried on with a three course Italian dinner and dancing. The bride and groom danced the night away and their excitement and happiness for one another was evident.
Giovanna wanted to have a lot of personalized touches at her wedding and to be able to savor those memories in years to come. Instead of the traditional guest book and pen, the couple had a large white poster board with a picture of a car tagged “just married” on it, along with the wedding date and their names on the bottom. On the top of the car was a bunch of strings, the only thing missing was balloons. Each guest took a dab of different colored ink and created a balloon out of their thumbprint. The guests then signed their names on their print. The guests loved this idea and thought it was such a great alternative to the regular guest book. Giovanna & Ian plan to hang this in their new home to always remember their special day and the ones they shared it with. Late in the evening, guests had to complete a bucket list of items that they thought the bride and groom must try and accomplish in their life together. A lot of guests gave suggestions along with notes to the newlyweds.
Overall, Giovanna and Ian had an amazing wedding that was both interactive for guests and incredibly unique. Congratulations Giovanna & Ian! We wish you all the best! Many thanks to Cafe Nuovo, Scott Zuehlke Photography, Flowers by Semia and Rentals Unlimited for all their hard work!
