Congratulations to Brian Herdeg and Gina Marzullo on their Wedding, By Pat Kinsella Herdeg, mother of the groom (!)

This past Saturday, June 25th, Brian Herdeg, son of Pat Kinsella Herdeg and grandson of Aunt CB, married his longtime high school sweetheart, Gina Marzullo.

The wedding took place in Brian and Gina’s hometown of Acton, MA—at St. Elizabeth of Hungary’s Catholic Church. The groom—our Brian-- was escorted down the church aisle by his parents, Pat and Glenn Herdeg.

The bride—Gina Marie-- looking stunning in her strapless beaded taffeta gown, walked down the aisle arm in arm with her father.

Alison Herdeg, sister of the groom, was a bridesmaid, while Brian’s brother, Nicholas, was a groomsman.

The reception was held at a nearby hotel convention center, and highlights included the great food, dancing-- several uncles were known to spend precious time teaching dance moves to the younger generation, and catching up between relatives.

One of the pinnacles of the night was the first dance, set to ‘Almost Paradise’, a song from ‘Footloose’, the musical both Brian and Gina acted in during high school. Beautifully choreographed by Gina, a longtime dancer and choreographer—even with her long bustled train and the weight of her dress, she and Brian were not deterred—many spins and jumps and fluid moves later, they ended the dance in a kiss.

The night ended with ‘Sweet Caroline’ as the group serenaded Brian and Gina to the Red Sox anthem.

We thank EVERYONE who made it to Brian and Gina’s wedding—it went off so beautifully, and aside from our kitchen faucet exploding the morning of the wedding—it was truly a day to remember in our hearts.

We have lots of photos still to see from cousins, family, friends, so send them along, and I will put them up in a link on the side of the blog.

As Glenn and I shared a glass after the wedding, Glenn toasted to our now four children—Welcome to the family, Gina Marzullo Herdeg!

It was a grand wedding!!And the reception! It was a treat to see all the uncles teaching the little kids the "latest" moves in dancing! I am sure Gina never saw them in her career!
