According to an exclusive announcement made by People, the 90 Day Fiancé star and her longtime boyfriend Florian Sukaj got married on Thursday at Saybrook Point Resort & Marina in Connecticut.
Silva, who is 48 years old, tells PEOPLE that "this is the moment that we've been waiting for." "We've been together for eight years and made it through a lot of tough times together, but our love is still going strong. Right now, we are here. We made it. It is a breathtaking experience to say our vows in front of our family and friends."
The couple, who had initially met on Instagram, tied the knot for the very first time in April 2020 in an intimate ceremony that featured only the two of them and their officiant as participants.
Despite taking place during a time when everyone was under lockdown, it was a truly remarkable and one-of-a-kind event. We were concerned about the welfare of everyone, and we wanted to do things the right way. However, just like the rest of the world, our love couldn't wait any longer "says Silva. "Because it was such a personal occasion, we will never be able to forget that moment. However, our ultimate goal has always been to have a fairytale wedding.
Danielle Rothweiler, a professional wedding planner, was called upon to assist the couple in putting together a wedding that was described as "contemporary and stylish." Both the ceremony and the reception were adorned with tons of candles and crystals, and the colors used were various tints of white, soft pink, and ivory.
According to Rothweiler, "Stacey adored the notion of an all-white mood throughout the day," so they used exquisite white blooms throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. "She really wanted it to feel private and special so that they could finally share their marriage with those who were closest to them in both their friendships and their families."
During the cocktail hour, the couple served their forty guests sausage-stuffed mushroom caps, fig and goat cheese pastries, and pesto-marinated tomato and mozzarella skewers. For dinner, the couple served short rib and fish, whipped mashed potato, and broccolini.
The cake has five tiers, a filling of white chocolate cream cheese and white chocolate ganache, and a white fondant rhinestone border. Silva explains that they went with a red velvet fabric because "red is the color of love."
The Albanian American fashion designer Katerina Bocci created a one-of-a-kind gown for the bride to wear. "Her outfits are truly high couture," adds Silva. "She has literally just created the outfit of my dreams. It is without a doubt the most stunning and breathtaking outfit I could ever, ever, ever have dreamed of having."
Even as the happy couple begins making plans for their honeymoon — which Silva describes as taking place "somewhere sunny and lovely" — they are continuing to savor each and every moment from their big day.
She continues by saying, "We're happier than we've ever been." "When we uttered our vows, it just felt perfect."
