Ohio Canton Wedding
– Danielle and Dominic’s Ohio Canton Wedding was elegant, rustic and picturesque with an Italian theme. They are both Italian so an Italian wedding was a vision they both shared. The guest seating map of Italy was designed by the couple and the stand was built by Danielle’s father. The map displayed places they’ve been, cities their ancestors once lived, places they are visiting on their honeymoon, and cities they hope to visit.
An Italian influence was also visible in Danielle and Dominic’s choice of venue, desserts and centerpieces. The wedding was held at the beautiful Gervasi Vineyard, with its Tuscan inspired grounds, Villas and outdoor wedding Pavilion. In lieu of a cake, Danielle chose cannoli and the two newleyweds decided to feed one another canoli rather than the traditional cake cutting. For centerpieces, Danielle’s good friend Jordan designed wine bottle labels decorated with maps of Italy and coordinated with wine corks and wine grapes.
Getting ready took place at the Gervasi Farmhouse, where Danielle donned a gorgeous gown covered in elegant lace and with delicate lace straps. Once Danielle put the dress on, she knew it was the one. “I picked my dress because I feel like it has a timeless look and I always wanted a bit of lace. I just didn’t know my whole dress would be lace!” To give her gown a lighter feel and reveal the beauty of the lace in the train, Danielle removed the lining in the train of the dress.
Dominic and Danielle exchanged vows by the stone arch at the edge of the lake. A unique addition to their wedding ceremony was a wine unity ceremony, written by the couple and their pastor. Dominic picked his favorite red wine and Danielle picked her favorite white wine. During the ceremony their pastor talked about how the wine glasses represent the pair and how wine gets better with age, just like love. They each poured a little bit of wine into the glass creating a rosé wine. This represented a blending of two people and becoming one in marriage.
