Tanner and Gina traveled to Tuscany, Italy and fell in love! They decided to plan a Tuscan themed wedding and Raffaldini Vineyard completed that vision for their engagement photos!

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

We met the second semester of our freshman year in college. We were randomly paired to be partners on two projects in two different classes… fate?


What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. What makes your relationship unique?

Our relationship is special because no matter what situation life throws at us, we know we can get through anything together. We’ve gone through the highs of backpacking across Europe and the lows of losing many loved ones, through it all we have grown closer.


Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

Tanner proposed to me in Chicago, IL. He sent me on a scavenger hunt for my birthday and the last card led me to a picnic overlooking Lake Michigan. There, he proposed and my entire family jumped out of hidden places to celebrate with us.


We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

Tanner choose the gorgeous two-toned gold Virago ring on his own! A couple months later we decided to look at rings just for fun (little did I know he planned it) and I ended up falling in love with the same ring he had already chosen.
