Lauren and Anthony were married at Cibo Urban Pizzeria Cafe in Phoenix, Arizona on April 6. The bride wore a strapless dress with a ruched bodice and a green and purple embroidered sash, her hair in relaxed curls. She carried a bouquet of succulents, mums, baby’s breath and assorted greenery. Her ‘maids donned green floor-length strapless dresses and held bouquets filled with baby’s breath, mums, and daisies. The groom looked dapper in a purple-checkered button-up, paisley tie, and gray vest. His men wore green-checkered button-up shirts with khaki pants. The reason for all the green and purple? “Choosing colors was hard for me, but we decided on purple for our football team back home (The Ravens) and green is Anthony’s favorite color,” Lauren said. The intimate crowd of 75 guests gathered outside to watch Lauren and Anthony exchange their vows, which she says took them just 4 minutes. “That gave us more time to party,” she said. Guests headed off to the outdoor reception at the restaurant where a picture frame doubled as a seating chart, leading them to their seats. Colorful streamers decorated the outdoor area, and guests sat at banquet tables with cafe chairs and wire table numbers, which the bride’s brother made. “We both come from Italian families so we wanted to include that culture in a little bit, with Italian desserts, music, and the dinner,” Lauren said. After enjoying the Italian fare (pizza and pasta, yum!) the guests took advantage of the photo booth, indulged in a two-tiered cake with butter cream frosting, and took home personalized candles as a favor. “Our families mesh so well together, so it was just a big party all day,” Lauren recalled. “Our wedding was intimate, dreamy and so perfect, it could not have gone any better.” See the full board here.
