Kristina & Anthony’s Celebration
The union of Kristina and Anthony was such a mesmerizing celebration at St Teresa of Avila Parish followed a beautiful Natirar wedding reception. From carefully thought-out details to unmatched family bonds – the day just had extra magic!
Let’s start Kristina and Anthony’s Natirar wedding story with their carefully organized proposal. It took place on a significant day – Kristina’s mother’s birthday. This detail was vital in the execution of surprising Kristina…
“…my family and I arrived at Knickerbocker Country Club to meet my father, champagne followed which I only expected would be for a toast for my mother’s birthday. Then Anthony started to show me his bulletin boards, as he is a guidance counselor and I am a teacher so I had been helping with ideas. As I swiped to see the 2nd board, displayed was “Will You Marry Me” with pictures of us. To say I was surprised is an understatement!”– Bride, Kristina
When Anthony stumbled upon Natirar during their venue search, the couple immediately fell in love and knew that would be the place they celebrate becoming The Tozzis. The modern, rustic, and elegant ambiance perfectly matched their vision. After touring just a few venues, Kristina and Anthony knew a Natirar wedding was ideal for their special day.
The thrill of securing vendors that resonated with them on a personal level was a standout moment during the planning phase. Additionally, the tasting experience at Natirar, where they tested various stations and drink options, left a significant mark on them…
“The best part was definitely all of the initial bookings because we chose all of the vendors we personally connected with and it was just an amazing feeling. Also, the tasting. We had the opportunity to spend the night at Natirar with my parents testing the different stations, meal and drink options. It was not only a great experience but also an amazing and exciting memory.”– Kristina
Family played an important role in their Natirar wedding day. Although Kristina and Anthony did not have children at their reception, they still found a way to involve their nieces and young cousins taking on the roles of flower girls and a ring bearer. Despite the brevity of their involvement, this was an extremely sentimental touch to the celebration.
Navigating the intricate planning process, Kristina admitted that the most challenging aspect was the uncertainty of how everything would come together on the day of their wedding. Crafting a vision and hoping it seamlessly materializes is a common concern for many couples. Fortunately, the couple found solace in having Angela, their wedding planner, iron out the details.
For future brides and grooms, the Tozzis noted the importance of relaxation…
“Our best advice would be to relax – as hard as that may seem – everything will get done in the end. Try not to think about pleasing others, this is your day, go with your vision. It is important to fully enjoy the process, it goes by so quickly!”– Kristina
