When Joe met Giovanna at a fund-raising party in Washington D.C. he was smitten, and it’s easy to see why with Giovanna’s warm personality, beauty, and grace. It didn’t take long before they decided to tie the knot.
With close family ties to the emerald isle Giovanna and Joe chose to have a winter destination wedding at Ballyfin Demesne, one of Ireland’s most exclusive and beautiful manor houses, to exchange their vows and celebrate with family and friends. An amazing touch was having Kirsten Gillibrand, current US Senator and close friend of Giovanna, perform the intimate wedding ceremony making the day extra special for the couple.
Giovanna’s Marchesa wedding gown was ever so elegant and fitting for the decadence of Ballyfin. It was clear during their ‘first look’ that Joe thought so too. A few extra fine and simple detailing from The Garden Powerscourt and Xena Productions was all that was needed to make their wedding day a beautiful affair.
