Giovanna is a dental hygienist, and Bret is an electrician. Her boss would have Bret and his company come to fix electrical issues in their building, and over time, these two got to know each other and started dating. About a year later, Bret asked her to marry him on a mountain overlooking the beautiful little town of Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia – the same place they shared their first date together! These two are so sweet and seem to be always smiling! You can tell that these two are the kind of couple that will last through the trials of time and all of the ups and downs that life brings – no matter what happens, as long as they are together, they will be complete. Enjoy some of my favorites from their classic, romantic wedding day!
It was so sweet to watch Bret’s dad help him get dressed with his finishing touches… It was a very special day of course, and moments like these are the ones you just can’t miss…
Bret’s best friend Tony is a style perfectionist so he gave Bret some pointers with folding his pocket square… These guys were looking sharp!
Meanwhile, Giovanna, her sister, mother, and grandmother were all helping her step into that beautiful dress..
With her friends, aunts, and mother-in-law there too, of course!
I love how proudly her mama looks at her…How beautiful is Giovanna… She had some lace added to her mother’s veil to wear. Stunning!
Her daddy came in to se her for the first time…
St. Anthony’s is beautiful with so much intricate stone and stained glass detail…
Their good friend Alexia sang their first dance song…
The food was absolutely beautiful and looked divine!
And it isn’t a true best man speech unless the groom is butchered a little bit! Giovanna’s parents gave a lovely toast after Tony and Giovanna’s sister both spoke.
I spy a couple KSP brides!
I was so happy to have been part of this couple’s beautiful wedding day. There were so many personal touches that really reflected their heritage, personalities, and love for each other. I wish these two nothing but the best! I know that life has so many beautiful things in store for them!
