It’s always so exciting when the magazine, Grace Ormonde’s Wedding Style picks up one of the weddings I’ve shot – not only because of her great style, but because they only feature 5 weddings in each magazine. Getting 6 pages was amazing though.

When I walked into the reception at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, I just knew it was a “Grace Ormonde” wedding with the over the top cake produced by the bride’s aunt , Lisa Constantino, and the amazing 400 stem Hydrangea runner that ran the entire length of the head table by C2M Designs.

Also the wonderful story of two big Italian food families in Providence coming together was a Romeo and Juliet story (without the unhappy ending) that I thought Grace would enjoy.   Alicia, whose family owned Constantino’s Venda Ravioli, an Italian food emporium and cafe in Providence Rhode Island was the bride while Sal’s family owned the fine Italian restaurant, Capriccio’s.  It was a match to make the families delighted.
