Universal Studios Wedding | The Portofino Wedding of Micaela and Vicenzo


Micaela and Vicenzo hosted a Universal Studios wedding at the spectacular Loews Portofino Bay Hotel

in early March. Micaela looked like a princess in her stunning bridal ball gown! We loved how the intricate layers of the gown’s full skirt paired with the detailed beading on the bodice. So elegant, and perfect for this Tuscan-inspired wedding venue!

The couple’s choice of color palette truly suited the season. With tones of white, ivory, blush, and soft purple, they embraced the spring and brought a sense of cheer to this happy occasion. We also loved that Micaela opted to have a first look with her father…such a sweet and sentimental moment between the two of them!

The Just Marry! Team greatly enjoyed working with Micaela and Vicenzo on their Portofino wedding! Here is what their Just Marry! wedding planner, Leanna, shared about their event:
  • Favorite detail

    The bridal party both wore classic and unique dresses in colors that complemented the wedding palette instead of having matching dresses. This is one of the hottest wedding trends we’ve seen this year, and I loved it!

  • Fave part of the planning process with the clients

    All of it! Micaela mostly had everything sorted out on her own and I was a source of support for her. She was so easy to work with, and so sweet throughout the entire process!

  • Menu the couple selected

    One of their own homemade recipes, which made this an even more memorable event! Vincenzo is the owner and chef of the beautiful and popular Vincenzo’s Cucina Italiana on International Drive, so of course they held their reception there. I thought it was a personal choice that perfectly suited their event!
