Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
For Natalie and Dominic Rosselli, who’ve known each other their entire lives, a wedding was as much an opportunity to celebrate love as it was to celebrate family. The couple’s ceremony included a dual-meaning symbolism: They planted a fig tree to honor their shared Italian heritage and each of their late paternal grandfathers. And in her bouquet, Natalie incorporated a piece of her mother’s wedding dress and her grandmother’s broach.
The couple wasn’t going to forget their furry family, either. Their dog Bromley, who played a vital role in Dominic’s proposal, joined the couple after the ceremony. Wearing a doggie bow tie (eek!), Bromley walked with Natalie and Dominic as they exited the church doors and were announced to their guests.
And for the reception? You might remember a picture in last issue’s “Memorable Meals” story: Family and friends baked more than 3,000 cookies for a traditional Youngstown cookie table!
