Martin and Marzia wanted their wedding to be a blend of both their cultures, Filipino and Italian. The result was an intimate gathering of family and friends wrapped in a festive atmosphere.

The night was characterized with a lot of drinking, singing, drinking, toasting, drinking and dancing. Did I already mention the drinking part?
