It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon in downtown Kansas City for the grand ceremony joining these two lovely local families. The bride was joined at the altar by her 13 bridesmaids and her groom was supported by his 13 groomsmen. The maid of honor was Kaitlin's sister, Andreina Byrne. Joseph chose his two brothers as his best men; Carl Privitera III and John Alex Privitera.
The couple chose the poem "Married Love" to illustrate their relationship as man and wife.
Married Love"You and I have so much love that it burns like a fire. In which we bake a lump of clay molded into a figure of you and a figure of me. Then we take both of them, and break them into pieces, and mix the pieces with water. And mold again a figure of you, and a figure of me. I am in your clay. You are in my clay. In life we share a single quilt. In death we will share one bed."

After the ceremony and pictures it was off to Union Station to welcome family and friends to continue the celebration with a memorable reception. The dinner was a beautiful Italian buffet starting with appetizers of mozzarella and italian sausage arancini, classic tomato-basil bruschetta complemented with fresh baked rolls and butter. The salad was mixed baby greens and sliced cucumbers, grace tomatoes with Bermuda red onions topped with crouton and feta cheese. The entrees of sliced tender beef brisket in au jus and Boursin chicken roulade stuffed with spinach and Boursin cheese finished with a garlic herb sauce. * Accented with garlic whipped mashed potatoes, green beans and julienne red peppers tossed in olive oil.
