Bart and Maddy’s wedding at the DeKoven Center in Racine is an event that guests described as classic and timeless. From the historical retreat center that hosted both their ceremony and reception to the classic greens, nudes, and whites that they used for decor everything was done with such class and vision to compliment who Bart and Maddy are individually and as a couple. A traditional ceremony took place in the beautiful chapel on campus with a touch of the Pinello’s family heritage being present – the Ava Maria being sung in Italian by Bart’s sister for example.
Bart and Maddy have been together since they were 15 years old, meeting outside of Six Flags Great America! They have grown into adulthood together, but still remain individuals which is such a testament of the strong and healthy relationship that these two have. Two families definitely became one at the celebration of their marriage and it was evident in all the love that surrounded them throughout the day and later on the dance floor with family and friends.
