Who knew, growing up 20 minutes away from each other that fate would have us meet 1,697 miles away in the beautiful Caribbean island of St Martin! Both of our families had traveled to the island for years but our Easter trip in spring of 2008 was the birth of our relationship. Although Frank was not present on that trip, once our parents realized they had one major thing in common, being Sicilian, they thought it would be a great idea to have us meet for dinner back in NJ. It only took a few family dinners and our first date on June 11th, to make it official. We planned our dream wedding in Taormina, Sicily thanks to the love and support of our parents, siblings and families both in the US and in Sicily and it has been over 10 beautiful years together and married since July 8th 2014. Our love for each other and our culture grows stronger every day and we look forward to spending our summers in Sicily every year!
