When I first spoke to Jenna + Giuseppe, they were living in Italy as Giuseppe played soccer (ahem, football) internationally.

Catherine and Eric’s wedding at Rumson River House was a perfect example of a home town wedding done right. Catherine got ready in her childhood home and we rode to the most beautiful church right down the street.
