Digital Merit staff was delighted to cover Richard and Gina’s wedding on March 31, 2018. The wedding took place at the Crown Plaza Hotel at White Plains. Staff met with this lovely couple about a month and half ago at the hotel to discuss the details of their wedding and be familiar with the facility and the locations and arrangement for the ceremony, reception, and the preparation room and suite. Gina and Rich love story is a beautiful one and you can read about it at ginaandrich.com , and this story is essentially repeated below just in case the site hosting is a temporary one provided by the venue.
“Gina Romero and Richard Lauricella met in 2016, while she was working at a place he went often. He became enchanted by her smile and beauty. She just melted with his funny personality and his handsome face. They started to talk as friends while he was going where she worked. One afternoon, Gina had to take the train to Long Island, and Richard offered her a ride to the train station, and here is when he asked her for her phone number. A couple of weeks after Gina decided to move to New Rochelle to be closer to work, and Richard offered her help to move her stuff since she was living on her own. There first date was at the pizzeria and it was magical! . The afternoon turned to evening and ended with ice cream, where they talked until it was late and they needed to work the next day. And the rest, as they say, is history.
In October, Richard told Gina to go to the Rockefeller park in Thornwood, where they go to walk with Taco-their dog that they adopted. Richard Lauricella surprised Gina Romero by proposing in the woods, and she was in such shock that she could not answer, while he was on his knee. Gina then jumped up crying and they kissed each other, while she saying “YES YES YES I DO! I WANT TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE WITH YOU BABY!”
They’re so excited to start the next phase of their lives together and can’t wait to celebrate with you in March!”
It was really a beautiful wedding and staff covered the wedding from preparation to reception from about 12 noon to 10 pm. Everything went very smooth and couples looked very lovely. The ceremony was performed by the officiant, Minister Sandra, and it was very beautiful ceremony that was done in English and Spanish. Following the ceremony staff went with the wedding party to a local park for some really nice portrait photos, then returned to the hotel for the reception for the couple first dance, the bride and father dance, and groom and mother dance and the dinner, the cake cutting and bouquet throwing and the speeches, etc. It was really a lovely day from the beginning to end.
We also added a highlight video of the wedding which can be seen at the following link:
