Christina & Gavin's Intro Blog
We met at a bar, La Cave, in Newport Beach, CA and have been dating a little over a year before getting engaged. The proposal was AMAZING. Gavin surprised me with a trip to the Amalfi Coast in Italy. We were on a balcony overlooking the ocean and it was around midnight so the moon was shining down on the water and creating this glow over the ocean. What stood out most was that he said he wanted to spend forever with me and proceeded to ask to marry me. How could you turn that down? I said YES of course!

What I love most about weddings is when the bride walks down the aisle to say “I DO” and “I WILL” forever. Our wedding was inspired by a lot of love and our Italian engagement!
To try and get on the show, Gavin and I auditioned in Hollywood, CA. We went through multiple rounds of questions and eventually found out we were in the running. The show had us meet Tori and Dean for some additional interviewing. I came prepared and showed up with a vision board of what kind of wedding I was envisioning. I work in advertising so the vision board was over-the-top!
We were chosen to be on the show because of the love we exuded as a couple and the drama that came with it! Honestly, sTORIbook Weddings is a dream come true! Tori and Dean are great people who wanted to make our Big Day over-the-top, memorable, and everything we could have dreamed of! The show was an awesome experience and we are blessed to have been a part of it!
