Real Wedding: Marilyn and Nate's Little Italy Wedding

Marilyn and Nate have a special place in their hearts for Cleveland's Little Italy neighborhood. They had their first date at Presti's Bakery and it's where he proposed. Naturally, the neighborhood's iconic Holy Rosary church was the perfect place to get married. Marilyn and Nate even returned to Presti's on their wedding day and took photos at the table where they had their first date. This wedding is full of sweet details like that, including photos of their dogs on the reception dessert table, so they could be also part of the big day!
