Cinzia and Tanner did it right. Celebrated their holidays and then continued the holiday cheer by getting married in January. I love the thought of having a January anniversary, too! When all of the holiday bliss is dying down, you still have that anniversary date to look forward to. ;)
Their wedding was held at the beautiful Kiana Lodge, located on the waterfront in Poulsbo, WA. This place is magical, especially right after Christmas time. The fresh scent of pine tree still in the air, the rustic log architecture of the lodge, and the fires crackling.
Cinzia and her 10 bridesmaids began the day relaxing and getting ready in the cute little cottage next to the lodge, sipping champagne, and reminiscing on all of their memories. Cinzia and her bridesmaids are a true girl gang! They are a big group of girlfriends that all grew up together, and they are basically all sisters.
Cinzia’s family, the DiCicco family, are all Italian and her father and his cousins and brothers all own the chain of DiCicco Italian restaurants around California. It was fun to hear at the rehearsal dinner how loved Cinzia was growing up by her whole Italian family, and their is even an Italian dish in their restaurant named after her, The Cinzia! I loved how they incorporated bits and pieces of their heritage in the wedding. My favorite - when their cousin stood up and had every person in the room singing at the top of their lungs “That’s Amore” to the new Mr. and Mrs. Vaughn!
Cinzia and Tanner, your wedding was truly magical. From the Italian love songs to the epic fireworks, there really wasn’t a second of the day that I didn’t feel all of the AMORE! Your guys’ love is so authentic, and you guys are so deeply loved by all those around you. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Vaughn!
