After (25) years of togetherness, Brian and Lavinia decided to make it official on August 20, 2022, with their daughter Bri, right by their side! And what a celebration it was with over (225) guests and many surprises, including a wonderful saxophone serenade and a rented Rolls Royce, wedding gifts from the groom to his beautiful bride!

Lavinia was flanked by good friends and family as she prepared for this special day, while Brian and his guys dressed in some very handsome tuxedos. Although it was a hot, steamy August day, no one seemed to be bothered (thank God for the air conditioned church). The musician playing some amazing music while guests arrived & waiting for the bride to process. However, it was Brian who stole the show with his swag little dance number as he came to the alter!

Their ceremony was wonderfully planned with the couple’s mothers lighting a candle, a short and sweet spiritual vow and ring exchange, and ending with a traditional jumping of the broom, symbolizing their new beginning. The Aqua Turf Club was the reception destination where guests came from near and far to celebrate. Congratulations Lavinia and Brian … wishing you another 25 years of joy!
