A Glamorous All-Inclusive Long Island Wedding | Gina Marie + Anthony
We cannot get enough of love stories about childhood sweethearts! Meet Gina Marie & Anthony – our featured wedding couple. These two started dating at age 16, and it took Anthony three years to summon up the courage to ask Gina out! He was friends with her entire family first, so the couple is unsure if that made the transition from friends to a couple easier or harder. As for the three years prior, Anthony went everywhere with Gina’s family just to be near his future bride. Obviously, he finally summoned up the courage to ask her out. Now they are married and living happily ever after as husband and wife!
Their glamorous wedding day took place at Ariana Waterfall, an elegant and all-inclusive venue located in Long Island, New York. The venue is absolutely stunning and the decor truly sparkled with the most elegant details and backdrop. Beautiful bride, Gina Marie, walked down the aisle in the venue’s marble-lined ballroom with gorgeous sparkling chandeliers above, statuesque floral arrangements and glass-enclosed tropical gardens. Gina Marie wore a beautiful princess-like white gown with silver beading detail, complete with a gorgeous train, long flowing veil, and silver crown. She carried an elegant white cascading flower bouquet.
In the blink of an eye, this same ballroom quickly transitioned into a warm and enchanting reception area. The tables were topped with towering glass vases with white floral and blue bouquets. These tables surrounded the marble dance floor where Gina Marie and Anthony shared their first dance. The lighting was subtle and natural with blue tones. A cute personalized touch we noticed from these Disney and Super Hero fans were: 1. The couple’s wedding cake had a cute little Mickey and Minnie Mouse atop! And 2. The groomsmen’s socks worn with their black suits were superhero themed. We know we spotted Hulk and Spiderman on two of the men! What nice and fun touches to bring to their wedding day!
An Ariana Waterfall all-inclusive package was chosen by Gina Marie and Anthony. Less stress on them and all handled by Ariana Waterfall (and vendor partners). They had an amazing ice sculpture created (see the picture below). Included also were an Italian flair catered reception, a premium 5-hour bar, their photographer, videographer, DJ, floral centerpieces, after-wedding transportation limo, and the customized tiered wedding cake.
Now happily married, Anthony is officially part of Gina Marie’s family! However, the family has clearly stated that he was part of the family a very long time ago. What a sweet story and beautiful wedding!
