Christina & Gavin on Episode 6: Tuscan Wedding
We decided to plan our wedding with a Tuscan-inspired theme because we got engaged on the Amalfi Coast in Italy and felt that it would be fun to have a similarly themed wedding. When we found out that Tori and Dean would plan our wedding in a few weeks, we were nervous. There was so much to be done and not a lot of time to do it!

Christina: Tori taking me to borrow the diamond jewelry was a fairytale. A girl always dreams of her wedding day and on that day I felt like a princess!
Gavin: I wanted to wear a simple blue seersucker suit without the bowtie and other formalities, because I wanted the feel to be casual yet classy, handsome, and free-spirited. A traditional black suit, bowtie, and neck-choking collar just would not have been reflective of our relationship. I think Dean and the team scored big-time. Thanks brothers!!
Christina: The decision to include all of the family in the wedding was not an easy one. I love all of my family so much and I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. There was an immense amount of pressure and no solution was ideal. I made the decision based on conversations with my family and trying to respect and honor the family as best as possible.
Gavin: The whiskey lounge was top-notch!! Tori and Dean were in "genius mode" when they set this piece up. I loved the leather couches, signage, and the vintage tandem bike. During the wedding, it was the perfect "manscape" (man escape). The guys were able to spend some quality time sippin firewater and catching up.
Christina: When Tori gave me the gift, I was filled with emotion. She is such a generous person with a huge heart. The homemade card was so sweet and I felt so blessed!
All of the wedding details that came together were incredible! Tori and Dean have such original and creative ideas. We could not have dreamed up a more perfect venue, decor, or food. Everything was above and beyond! Our favorite part of the wedding was the saying of our vows and the dance celebration that followed! We went to Santa Barbara for our honeymoon.
