Star Wars Flamingo Wedding

Mario and Melissa celebrated their special day in one of the most creative ways we have seen here at Commellini, their theme was a Star Wars Flamingo Wedding. Starting with walking down an isle lined with light sabers to the “Imperial March” from Star Wars, to making their own bouquets and, to add the final touch of sizzle they had flamingo décor. This unique nontraditional wedding was one that the Commellini family will always remember. The force was with them as they danced the night away with their closest friends and family!
