Tessa and Taani brought their Polynesian and Italian heritage to Utah for their ceremony and reception at the Utah State Capitol. The two were married on the outside patio and proceeded inside for their dinner and reception inside the Grand Rotunda of the Capitol building. As a nod to both their cultures, Tessa’s mini pineapples in the ceremony arch and table decor are an Italian symbol of good luck. Leis and other traditional Tongan dances represented Taani’s Polynesian heritage. We love the purposeful blend of their cultures.
