Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
The September weather tried—but ultimately failed—to disrupt Barbie and TJ Fazzone’s wedding. They almost had to move the ceremony inside after wind knocked down their arch, but at the last second, friends and family were able to get it upright and secure.
“We had no idea this happened until they told us about it and showed us pictures the next day at brunch,” Barbie says. “I’m not sure we would have found it funny that day, but we certainly laughed about it after the fact!”
After triumphing over the weather, the wedding’s reception featured a memorial table set up in memory of Barbie’s grandmother, who had passed away a month before, and TJ’s parents. They also had guests leave their marks on a wooden sign in lieu of a guest book. “It’s hanging in our bar, so we’re reminded every day about how fun our wedding day was, how many cocktails were consumed and how we were surrounded by so much love and support,” Barbie says.
