Together at Last

This traditional, family-centered wedding was packed with 550 guests and lots and lots of love.

Kaity and Tom have known each other for nine years. They met while living on the same floor as freshmen at the University of Kansas. After college, Tom joined the U.S. Marine Corps. By the time the wedding finally came around, the couple couldn't wait to tie the knot.

“Tom and I waited quite a long time to get married because he was deployed twice, so it felt very special that we could finally be together,” said Kaity.

Family is very special to the bride and groom, so they did everything they could to honor their loved ones. Kaity wore her mother's veil and her grandmother's pearl ring, and the couple displayed their ancestors' vintage wedding photos near the guestbook. During the ceremony, they used Kaity's grandmother's Bible, which she had taken notes in. Tom wore his grandfather's wedding band.

The reception was held at the Fucinaros' family restaurant. “Anthony's has been my family's restaurant since it opened. It has always been a dream of mine to have my reception there.”

Kaity and Tom incorporated some Marine Corps traditions, such as cutting the cake with a sword and walking under a sword arch as they left the church.

Tom admits that his favorite part of the day was seeing Kaity come down the aisle.

“My favorite part was after they announced us and we turned around to face the congregation,” Kaity said. “It was very special to see everyone there and to be with Tom.”

The bridesmaids walked in to Eva Cassidy's “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and Tom and Kaity walked out to a beautiful rendition of “Oh Happy Day.”

And what a happy day it was, Kaity gushed. “Everything was perfect. It was the best day ever and I wouldn't change anything about it.”
