The Ceremony

Lon Tosi of the Sensational Ceremonies of Orlando, Florida wedding officiants worked with the couple to construct a unique and elegant ceremony that specifically told their story. It featured a reading from the Nightmare Before Christmas that spoke of their desire to be together forever. “My dearest friend, I’d like to join you by your side, where we could gaze into the stars, and sit together now and forever”. The couple wrote of their love for one another in the dearest of terms. He wrote in part: “Valentina, you are the Jasmine to my Aladdin, the Anna to my Kristoff the Daisy to my Donald and the Minnie to my Micky! You love me in times when I doubt myself and you dare me to be a better version of myself”.

She wrote to him: I traveled across the Atlantic Ocean to meet you. All the paths that I ever took led me to you. My forever love, in just a few minutes you will make me the happiest woman…” You are so kind! You make me laugh! I love you for that little child who lives inside of you”. They have a wonderful love!
