The Tiffany Porter & Michael Canarozzi Wedding

Since both Tiffany and Michael—who today live in Ridgefield, Connecticut—are athletic and outdoorsy, the newlyweds rented a rowboat, which they boarded immediately following the ceremony to take them to the reception. There, they danced their first dance together to kick off the celebration.

The venue was an open warehouse, which gave them a blank canvas to set up however they liked. Wanting to create a vintage look to warm up the space, Tiffany brought in antique furniture and place settings, which she found from dealers and antique shops. Each piece of furniture was actually reupholstered by their wedding planner—including the sweetheart table, which had a king and queen chair for the bride and groom. “Each guest had a place setting made up of mismatched antique pieces, and all of the tableware was rented from a vintage shop,” Tiffany says.

There were many other special touches to the day. For example, during the cocktail hour, “living statues” (dancers positioned on pedestals, each holding a bouquet of flowers) swayed and moved to the live music as guests walked by. The “statues” then changed into all-white costumes with wings and were there to greet everyone as they entered the reception. Once everyone was inside, they performed an upbeat wedding dance to really get the party started.

“It was a wonderful day,” the bride gushes, “but perhaps my favorite part was my dress, which was a lace-and-tulle strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and a big, flowing train for a dramatic entrance.” The ending of the day was no less spectacular, as everyone was treated to a fireworks display.
