Alessandra and Joe had a traditional and elegant backyard reception at their private residence in Orlando, Florida. Their wedding was extremely special to the bride’s parents, since they also had their wedding at the same house.

The day began with the bridal party getting ready with the bride and groom’s fur babies. The bride has a golden retriever and a cat named Tony, they both made it into some of thier wedding photos.

Alessandra and Joe’s day was full of little details. The bride’s dad drew a coat of arms that is a combination of both’s families coat of arms. They had it digitally recreated as a giant print for the ceremony entrance, cocktail napkins, the top of the ceremony programs, and in a smaller frame on the bar. Their seating chart also had a crest on it with a painting of the bride’s parents’ home, which is where the wedding took place.

Joe wore a classic black tux, with a BMW cuff link, that he also gave to each of his groomsmen. Alessandra wore a fitted beaded wedding gown from The Collection Bridal.

The ceremony was held at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Winter Park, Florida. While the reception was held in the bride’s backyard. Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals lighted provided the tent, dance floor, lighting and all of the rentals. All of the guest enjoyed the delicious food and danced the night away.
