Gino on Marry Me in NYC

Hi Everybody I’m Gino Filippone and I’m so excited to be making couples’ wedding dreams come true on Marry Me in NYC on WE tv. As a NYC wedding planner I have now done over a thousand weddings. I don’t think one of my brides could come up with a request that would surprise me… well, at least that’s what I thought before we started shooting the show. Part of the reason I got into this business is that everybody has a romantic idea of what the perfect wedding is, and I love trying to make their dream come true.

Because we plan so many weddings a year I hired Marisa to help me to make sure every couple was getting the attention they needed. But even with Marisa we were shorthanded so she suggested I hire her sister Sandra, little did I know they were identical twins and for the first week I had no idea which one I was talking to. Luckily Sandy agreed to get highlights!

New York City weddings can run can from A to Z, some of our favorite weddings have been the least expensive and usually that’s because a bride and groom have worked with us to personalize it. I love the moment when I see in a bride’s face that we have made her wedding perfect. We believe that a priceless New York wedding doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.

Planning for each bride and groom IS different, and we try and personalize it for both of them but at the end of the day there’s ALWAYS a difference of opinion and usually THAT’S when the mothers come in to play. No matter how heated it gets it’s our job is to make sure there’s a happy ending.

Hopefully you’ll watch #MMNYC as Marisa, Sandy and I juggle brides, grooms, mothers, locations, weather and the added element of a film crew. A wedding is a once in a lifetime experience and every week we want you to come along to watch as our couple’s dream weddings come true. After the episodes I’d love to hear your thoughts, opinions and ideas and hopefully you’ll want us to plan your New York Wedding.
