The Bride Danielle Tempesta, 23, is the manager of meetings and events at the Orlando Science Center.
The Groom Steven Kosanovich, 25, is a video game artist at Iron Galaxy Studios.
How They Met Danielle and Steven met through mutual friends at an Invisible Children event called Displace Me. Held to raise awareness about the lives of children in Uganda, the event created a strong bond between the couple while they spent the night in cardboard boxes and dined on saltine crackers, similarly to how displaced children have to live. Danielle cherishes the memory of the night she met Steven through photos. “Because it was an event, I was equipped with my camera. Not many couples have photos together of the first day they met,” Danielle says.
Their Engagement On the date of their four-year anniversary, the couple shared a romantic meal at their favorite restaurant and brought along a bottle of wine from a recent trip to Paris. Later that night, while enjoying glasses of port from another trip out on their balcony, Steven got down on one knee. “He proposed to me with my mother’s engagement ring.”
Their Wedding A rustic and casual theme meant to feel like an intimate gathering.
