On her bouquet, Sherri wore a pin that was her “something borrowed” from her sister’s wedding. It is an angel pin with her birthstone, which was incredibly special to her. She also wore a vintage purse that was her “something old” from her Vovo, her Portuguese grandmother.
With Kristen Weaver Photography behind the lens, Sherri and Franks’s ivory pink and gold romantic Tuscan style wedding had miles and miles of elegance. A string quartet played during their ceremony at the beautiful Bella Collina in Orlando. Gifts of rosemary infused olive oils were gifted to the guests, and each place setting had a little olive sprig on top of the menu. Guests also enjoyed mini Italian desserts and dark chocolate espresso. And their first dance was to Ellie Goulding’s song How Long Will I Love You. Then they exited the reception with sparklers around them. The couple spent their honeymoon relaxing in Greece with massages, candle lit dinners and beautiful views!
How they met
Frank and Sherri met through a mutual friend and hit it off immediately. He asked to take her to dinner just a few days after, and the rest is history. Sherri knew the moment of their first date that he was the one.
The couple spent their 4th of July weekend with Sherri’s family in Connecticut, enjoying all things New England, such as hot buttered lobster rolls and unforgettable scenery. While there, they took a day trip over to a beautiful New England resort. He managed to get Sherri alone, and the two looked out at the ocean, and he began to express how much he adored her, and would be with her forever. Then he brought out a beautiful ring, got on one knee, all the while Sherri’s family was able to watch the entire proposal secretly.
Thanks for stopping by!
