The first time she met Franco was through a good friend who happened to be Ioanna’s maid of honor. She introduced them one night and it was love at first sight. “When I first met him, I was instantly attracted to his charming characteristics and his genuine gentlemanlike behaviors,” Ioanna said. From the day they met, they were inseparable.
After spending many years together, Franco became the person who knew Ioanna better than anyone. She still gets butterflies every time she sees him. “It’s like seeing him again for the first time,” Ioanna said.
“The day that he proposed was the best day of my life,” she said. It’s often a girl’s dream come true when the one she loves proposes to her. For Ioanna, it was something she had been waiting for her whole life.

With their amazing and talented wedding planner, the couple was able to make their dream wedding become a reality. It was a fairytale wedding and they were blown away by it all. That day in August was an indescribable day, which they will never forget. “We truly felt like Royalty,” Ioanna said.
