Julianne and Michael’s wedding was truly something of a fairy tale. Julianne wore a gown Cinderella would be jealous of their day was something Walt Disney himself couldn’t have imagined. Julianne looked like a princess about to marry her prince charming. The weather cold and rainy weather did nothing to dampen their spirits it only served to make their formal pictures all the more spectacular. Want to swoon, for real? Check out their first dance photos. They’re enough to make a girl run out and get the fluffiest ball gown they can find. The couple and both their sets of parents took dance lessons and to perfect their waltz. Again, the pictures by Joseph Laurin are proof, it’s pure magic!
On September 30th 2016 Julianne & Michael got married. Before their ceremony, the couple did a first look before they said their“ I DO’s”. Michael came over to the house after Julianne was put into her princess dress and her Manolo Blahnik shoes. Their first moment was intimate and even had a grand staircase in the background. Julianne’s wedding Jewelry was mostly given to her by grandparents that have passed. Carrying their memory with her kept her full of love on her happy day. Inside her wedding dress were pieces of material from loved ones that were sewn into her gown. Julianne wore her mother’s veil handmade by her maternal Grandmother.
Complete with a vintage Rolls Royce as their modern horse-drawn carriage, this beautiful couple’s wedding was perfection from start to finish. The ceremony and reception reception at Castle Hill Inn were flawless. The florals by Stone Blossom Floral & Event Design were the perfect flowering accent to the natural ocean beauty that surrounds the venue. Artistic Wedding Films captured the beautiful day and their video is GORGEOUS! Enjoy Julianne and Michael’s stunning video and pictures and after the bouquet toss, read about how Julianne and Michael met and fell in love. Hint, technology had a big part. <3
Julianne Katherine Jaindl was in her junior year at Johnson & Wales University studying baking and pastry arts. Michael Francis Cesare had graduated Marist College in May and moved to Rhode Island in June to work at a brand new start-up called Teespring. Michael’s hard work was paying off as the company started to grow but it was hard to meet new people not knowing his way around Rhode Island. It didn’t help that all of his co-workers were already in a relationship (no wingman to be had). Michael had expressed his frustrations to his family and that’s when his sister Alicia recommend he get on “Meet Me”, a dating site that helped people meet people in their area. Michael was reluctant but his sister went ahead and created his profile anyway.
Julianne was in English class when her friend Ellie started telling her how she met a great guy on a new dating site called Meet Me. Ellie started showing Julie how the app worked and how the matchmaker helped find people you might be interested in. Julie wanted to try the site out so she created a profile. Julie started using the Matchmaker tool and low and behold, Michael’s profile showed up. Julie thought Michael was cute so she sent him a message…”Hey, so I see we both live in the same area!”. Michael who had been contemplating deleting his account was taken back when he got a message Julie…She was good looking, seemed normal and messaged me first! Michael answered back and they continued to talk for a week and a half before going on their first date. Michael took Julie to Mediterraneo on Federal Hill in Providence, which became their favorite restaurant. They had a fantastic time and shared their first kiss that night.
Michael had never been to Newport before meeting Julie…Julie had been going to Newport her whole life. Julie’s parents loved Newport so much they bought a place their so they could come up whenever they wanted. Julie was eager to show Michael all of her favorite Newport spots so they planned a weekend trip down to Newport. Julie showed Michael Bowens Warf, O’Brien’s Pub, the Mansions on Bellevue, the Clark Cookhouse (her Dad’s favorite restaurant) and Fort Adams (picture of that weekend attached). Needless to say Newport became a regular spot for Julie and Michael.
Julie and Michael had been dating for 3 years and Michael was planning on asking Julie to marry him. Michael got Mr. Jaindl’s permission while he was visiting Allentown. Mr. Jaindl asked Michael when he was planning on asking Julie and he immediately replied July 4 th in Newport during the fireworks…Mr. Jaindl smiled knowing it was a good idea and his daughter would love that.
After Dinner all Julianne’s Family, good friend Lizzie & Julianne’s Boyfriend Michael all headed over to Murphy’s Park to watch the fireworks. During the fireworks Julianne witnessed her father & brother pulling out their phones and started tapping. She knew something was going on when 2 seconds later Michael got down on one knee and purposed to Julianne during the Grand Finale of the fireworks. Of course Julianne said Yes to Michael after she was trying to put the ring on before she said yes. All Julianne kept thinking about the rest of the night was where they wanted the wedding and what time of the year. She had a lot going through her head about these big wedding plans. They family and everyone brought out their champagne glasses and toasted to Julianne & Michael.
