It was love at first sight for Tiare and Justin and to no surprise their wedding day was a lovely sight to see! Danfredo photographed and filmed this beautiful couple, capturing the memorable day that they expressed & devoted their love for one another. Oh and here’s some TV nostalgia for you, the groom Justin Giovinco is a former Big Brother (Season 4) cast member, how awesome! Fairly as amazing as the Tendenza, their wedding venue of choice which served as the gorgeous backdrop, provided the delish catering plus an ah-mazing three-tied wedding cake (a sparkling must-see)! Provided with the talent of our local wedding vendors, this wedding was an extravagant affair that brought together two families right here in heart of Philadelphia.
From the Bride: “Justin and I met in 2010 in Los Angeles on my first day of work at Nestle. I was being escorted around the office to meet everyone, when my manager introduced me to Justin in his cubicle. It was love at first sight! According to Justin, he immediately started plotting a strategy for a lunch date. I, on the other hand, naively thought he took all the new employees out to lunch. That is, until my coworkers revealed that he never took any of them to lunch before. Our secret workplace romance started off casual at first, because Justin had already announced he was moving back home to Philadelphia in a few months. However, our chemistry was impossible to ignore. A year later, I moved to Philadelphia to be with him.”
“Justin proposed at our dining room table after we had just finished eating one of his delicious home cooked meals of Chicken Parmesan. He got down on his good knee (he just had surgery on the other one a couple of weeks before) and proposed to me and my 2 daughters, Chloe and Paige. We all said, YES! “
“I absolutely loved every aspect of planning my wedding. I went into it with a very clear vision of what I wanted it to be like…modern and chic. I did a lot of research on wedding blogs and bridal forums and if you ask Justin, probably watched way too many shows about weddings and wedding dresses. You name it, I watched it! However, all that research paid off. Our venue, Tendenza, was my vision come to life. And I couldn’t have been happier with all of the other vendors we chose. I really did have the wedding of my dreams!”
“My best moment from our wedding day happened during our ceremony. Justin had just finished saying, “I do” when our son, Hunter, who was 1 year old at the time, loudly yelled out “Hey!” The place erupted in laughter. His timing couldn’t have been any more perfect.”
“My advice to couples would be to take everyone’s comments and suggestions in stride and do whatever makes you happy. It’s your wedding! Also, don’t sweat the small stuff on the big day. The results of months and months of planning will fly by in a few short hours. So savor every single moment of it together!”
From the Photographer: “Last Spring, we had the pleasure of photographing Big Brother 4 cast member, Justin Giovinco’s, wedding at Tendenza. He and his lovely wife, Tiare, went all out for the event that brought together family from across the globe”
