Welcome back to Marci & Mike's Super Luxe Wedding at Bellagio Las Vegas!
When planning their wedding, both Marci and Mike wanted to represent their religions at their interfaith ceremony. To that end, we were certain to include traditional Jewish aspects, such as the signing of the Ketubah and the Chuppah, with Catholic prayers and rituals such as the unity candle.
Once the signing was complete, the family made their way to the Grand Patio, where a team of live musicians played and guests took their seats. The space, decorated and dressed by Naakiti Floral, was just a dream! Sandblasted manzanita trees studded with orchids and dripping with crystals made an aisle dotted with rose petals. The chuppah's top fabric was so light and sheer, it nearly disappeared against the sunlight.
The bridal party was almost upstaged by the flower girl - Who could not have been more adorable!
But the best moment of the day was when Marci came down the aisle and met her parents. Just her face...I can't! It was as if every emotion she had came to life in that moment. And, on a personal note, I have come to LOVE her mom and dad. Just super sweet people who love their daughter very much, and adore Mike as well.
The interfaith ceremony included wine, rings, a unity candle, and the breaking of the glass.
And finally...the moment we have all ben waiting for...The First Kiss! it certainly didn't disappoint!
Congratulations Dr. and Dr. Michael Pugnale!
Tomorrow we will continue our series on this gorgeous wedding at Bellagio Las Vegas and take you to the reception in the Monet Ballroom. Stay tuned!
