Today I want to share with you an amazing wedding in Lake Como Italy for a lovely bride Christie Lauren and her sharp hubby, Salvatore Bacarella. Christie is the epitome of a classy and sexy bride. It’s no wonder she’s so successful in her business designing gorgeous head pieces in NYC, just like the one she designed for her own wedding. Sal is as sharp as they come and ever so willing to make Cristie happy.
This wedding will always hold a special place in my heart as the wedding I almost didn’t make it to… haha. That’s right, the Cinematographer Ray Roman and myself got stuck (literally) on a mountain on the way to the ceremony. Our car got stuck between two narrow walls at the top of a mountain, something we look back now and realize how lucky we are to have clients like Christie and Sal that put the ceremony on hold to wait for us. Words cannot express what that means to us that they value our presence so much. We don’t take that for granted and we value just as much as clients.
