We met in high school! Victoria had been friends with 3 of the groomsmen since the 6th grade (shoutout Jake, Nick, Alex.) Mikey joined the friend group in high school and had played baseball with the guys in his younger years. At first, we started out as friends of friends - but when we took a trip to Ocean City, NJ our friendship started to grow. Victoria went back to school in Alabama and got a few messages from Mikey outside of the group message - her college roommates can vouch for how random she thought this was (granted she had a little crush on him.) During college homecomings they started to see movies, have dinners, etc. Their first full on date was at the Mystic Aquarium. On the way home, Victoria told Mikey her ENTIRE extended family was hosting a BBQ that evening - "would you want to come?" Mikey had 0 hesitations, jumped right in, fit right in, and she knew he was the one. We are beyond lucky & grateful that the integration between the Beldotti's & LaBella's has been extremely natural, lovable, and amazing.
