Chiara and Stefania knew marriage was right for them: they had been together for ten years before choosing to wed. The Italian couple organized a small, intimate Central Park wedding. After a decade of love, they committed to each other forever under The Ladies’ Pavilion against bright blue skies. The two brides wore exquisite, custom-tailored suits in navy and ocean blue. Following the ceremony, friends and family gathered for a picnic with champagne and cake.  “We spent ten years getting to know and understand each other,” the couple told us. “Deciding to get married and be together forever was the most beautiful decision we could make.”  To honor the decision, they tattooed the New York City skyline and their wedding date on their arms.

Chiara and Stefania hail from Geneva, Italy. For many of their guests, the Central Park wedding was their first trip to the United States. Of course, there was some “emotional management” of the family, but the couple tells Equally Wed this was normal. “Conviction and mutual love must prevail over everything,” they said. Their New York wedding only strengthened the family bonds. “It was a dream come true for everyone. We have met a lot of respect from our friends and family. It was a truly emotional ceremony.”

To other LGBTQ+ couples, Stefania and Chiara advise: “Do this with conviction and respect, because values have to be real deep! We suggest that couples marry when the relationship is really strong. No one can know what the future will be like. We have to be convinced that we will do everything to overcome the difficulties of life together.”
