A CELEBration to Remember: Big Ang’s son, Anthony Donfrio, and Gabriella Celestino

The Bride and Groom

We were saddened to hear the news of the passing of “Mob Wives” star Angela “Big Ang” Raiola and wish the best to her family. We look back on a moment of joy for her before her illness took over. We are honored to have been able to capture the marriage of her son, Anthony Donfrio, and Gabriella Celestino.

Big Ang and the Groom

This luxury wedding was held at Angel Orensanz Foundation Center on August 28, 2015. David Tutera planned and designed the elegant affair and it was featured on his show “David Tutera’s CELEBrations,” which aired on WEtv on December 18, 2015.

Tutera used the colors pink, white, and gold for the design and accented the beautiful space with candles. The couple shared their first dance to Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” Entertainment also included a Frank Sinatra impersonator. The lavish evening ended with the couple driving off in a white Lamborghini.

Get a sneak peek and more details on the episode here. Take a look at some of our favorite photos from this magnificent wedding captured by JJ at Gruber Photographers below.
