Mr. and Mrs. Traian Pircalabu

(Charlotte Towne)

(Continued)

Violinist was Andrea Tarquini, and cellist was Kendred Tillotson. Vocal soloist Jeannette Thompson Gardere performed “Ave Maria” with accompaniment by Jennifer Woodrow.

A cocktail reception and passed hors d’oeuvres followed the ceremony on the spacious residence lawn.

The wedding festivities then moved to the front lawn inside a wedding tent, where an elegant plated dinner was served and dancing ensued. The after-dinner dance celebration included a surprise vocal duet performance by the bride’s sister, Tisha McCoy, and one of her brothers, Curt Towne, performing the song “Lucky” by Jason Mraz featuring Colbie Caillat.

Traian and Charlotte shared their first dance to the song “Between the Raindrops” by Lifehouse featuring Natasha Bedingfield, which was fitting given the earlier rainfall at the commencement of their ceremony.

Cinematography by Vibe Video Productions; photography by The Siners Photography; catering by Michaels’ Catering; flowers by Anker Florist; cake by The Cake Artist; hair and makeup by Angie Bridgewater, Kevin & Co; seamstress, Billie Silvey; tents and rentals by Herriott’s; trailer by Kemper Midwest; entertainment by Crash Events.

The bride and groom have begun their matrimony in their new residence on the edge of the mangroves in Dania Beach, Fla., which is located just south of Fort Lauderdale near the ocean.

A European honeymoon including destinations of Romania and Italy is planned in the near future.
