Over a month ago, “Million Dollar Listing Miami” star Samantha DeBianchi tied the knot with Tony Laviola.
The couple had two wedding ceremonies, one in South Florida and another in Mexico.
The first wedding ceremony was held at a traditional Catholic church, followed by a reception at DUNE at Auberge Beach and Residences in Fort Lauderdale.
According to her wedding planner, Stacey Feldman of Peacock Premiere Events, Samantha wore a long-sleeved, sheer lace wedding gown by Angel Sanchez and light blue silk crystal-adorned Jimmy Choo heels. She also sported a “braided halo updo” and wore her mom’s floral-and-pearl wedding veil.
Samantha posted a pic from the wedding, joking, “This is what my future looks like.”
Guests enjoyed food from a customized family-style menu and danced to romantic songs from Michael Bublé and Frank Sinatra.
Stacey added, “We kept the decor clean, modern and organic with touches of gold, green, ivory, and whites.”
Samantha and Tony also held a smaller wedding ceremony at a boutique property in the middle of the jungle in Tulum, which was attended by 50 guests.
For their second wedding, Samantha wore a reception wedding gown by Emma Mae. Guests enjoyed views of the beach during dinner and were serenaded by singer Brendan O’Hara. Each table was decorated with pampas grass, delicate greenery, candles, and pastel floral centerpieces.
Before the reception, guests sipped on cocktails from the bar and homemade Mexican hors d’oeuvres.
While they were in Tulum, the couple enjoyed a weekend of activities, including water sports and yoga.
The wedding came five months after he proposed in Key Biscayne, Florida. At the time, he wrote on Instagram, "Sometimes you find the right person at the wrong time. Sometimes it’s the wrong person at the right time. But when you find the right person, at the right time, in the right situation, it’s because you’re meant to be together. #OffTheMarket #VivaLaViola."
Samantha shared photos from their engagement shoot, adding, "In all my wildest of dreams, nothing could come close to my reality of meeting and being with this insanely amazing person who I now get to spend the rest of my life with. Tony, let’s go take over the world together and promise to always dream big ❤️."
They started dating in 2017. Last year, Samantha opened up on their relationship on Instagram, saying, “I met Tony about a year and a half ago in my driveway. It was a far cry from a romantic meet cute; I was literally “the girl next door” living in the house next to one of his houses that he hosted on #Airbnb. Being that I was constantly woken up by rambunctious guests who enjoyed nocturnal life in the backyard, I was not Tony’s biggest fan and when meeting him for the first time in my driveway and learning the role he played in my sleep deprivation, I was a bit crazy and provided him with a few choice words that needless to say, were not so nice.”
While with wishing him a 35th birthday, she continued, “Every so often after that, I’d see Tony in my neighborhood waving hello, sending a smile and being so charming, so much so, that my bitchiness and anger from lack of sleep lifted and I saw the person he was, is and continues to be: the most amazing human being on the planet. Today’s lesson: Crazy always wins.”
