While on vacation Tori and Frank enjoyed a wonder-filled night of romantic surprises! After a private dinner in view of a scenic beach, Frank suggested they take a walk along the water. Having agreed, Tori found herself wondering toward what seemed to be someone else’s private dinner as candles flickered above a table that was surrounded by roses and champagne. The words “Will You Marry Me?” sat patiently in the sand, and it wasn’t until the appearance of a professional photographer and Frank on one knee that Tori realised it was her proposal! When asked, Tori told Wedded “Words to describe that moment – total shock, filled with happiness and definitely emotional! Being completely surprised makes getting engaged SO much better”
For the newlyweds, reflecting on their big day was the sweetest and easiest of tasks. After all, a day that celebrated their 10 year relationship was bound to be one to cherish.
As the fine details fell into place, and the traditional festivities began, Tori witnessed her fairy-tale wedding come to life. A white, ivory and champagne coloured-theme swept the ceremony, setting a precedence for the alluring day ahead. A white aisle runner with an “S” embellished in it personalised the ceremony to a tea while guests were greeted with blush shimmer confetti to throw over the bride and groom on their first kiss.
Cocktail hour followed and to the amazement of guests, it included an “S” ice sculpture, a mirrored seating chart and a custom martini bar! Frank’s big Italian family made the element of food a crucial necessity also – so Tori was sure to include endless rounds of finger-bitting food.
The reception embodied pops of pink, purple and gold, along with crystal ceilings and a royal throne fit for the king and queen of the hour. The first dance described by Tori was a moment of perfection as they danced above the clouds to the song they had chosen together in the ninth grade.
