In the early summer of 2020 I was contacted by one of the most thoughtful and gentle couples. They were getting married in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin with only a handful of family members present. With the Groom being from Italy and the Bride from Ireland, it would have been virtually impossible under the circumstances to throw the big party that they had initially dreamt up. We met to talk about how they envisioned things going, scouted some locations for photos, and realized pretty quickly that we were all a pretty good match.
Undeterred by the circumstances, they beautifully curated an intimate gathering with laughter, photos of friends and family hanging by the dinner table, good food and wine, and live music. Working with Eileen and Francesco was certainly a silver lining to an otherwise challenging year.
