Kelly + Gio had a beautiful Maison & Jardin wedding and we were so excited to be there! Miguel has known Gio since he was just a boy running around his fathers restaurant (La Dolce Vita is where Miguel learned his fabulous chef skills) and over the 10+ years he worked there, he (and I) grew close to the Bordenga family. There aren’t enough words to describe how pleased and honored we are to be chosen to capture Gio and Kelly’s love story. They’re truly a match made in heaven!
How They Met:
“Kelly and I met on a random Saturday Night before Halloween. we both weren’t suppose to be there but some how by some way we both showed up to make a blind date our friends were on less awkward. After talking for a while and her driving with me to a Halloween block party, which if you ask her she still doesn’t know why she drove around alone in some random guys car that night. lucky for me she did cause when the night was over we had set up our first date the next night and the rest is history. Over three years later I’m still in awe how so many things had to go right just for us to meet that night, which is just one the many reason I knew I found my soul mate.” ~ Gio
Their Engagment Story:
“We got engaged in st Augustine, where i surprised her on the top of the light house over looking the bay. this sounds super cool and romantic but at the time she was 6 months pregnant and i made her climb up 300 and something odd stairs to the top only telling her she had to see the view. after five breaks on the way up and almost quiting twice she finally made it up to the top where i surprised her and asked the question. after it all she did admit that it was all worth it.” ~ Gio
