Alexandra and Chris first met while attending the University of Richmond but didn’t start dating until after college, when they were living in New York City. (Ironically, the bride’s parents also met at the University of Richmond.)
The couple had been dating for about six-and-a-half years before they became engaged while out for a walk in their new home city of San Francisco. The bride’s brother, Harrison Oztemel, officiated at the ceremony on the rooftop of The Pearl in San Francisco. The couple had everyone laughing and crying when they shared their personal vows. Another highlight of the night was when Alexandra and her father, Gary, sang “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” with the band.
The bride, daughter of Gary Oztemel and Karen Scrivanos Oztemel of Greenwich, graduated from Greenwich Academy and the University of Richmond. Alexandra works in advertising at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco.
The groom, son of Stephen and Robyn Genualdi of New Jersey, graduated from Morristown High School and the University of Richmond. Chris works for NETGEAR in San Jose, California.
The couple spent their honeymoon in New Zealand and Bora Bora; they live in San Francisco.
