Katie Triolo and Jordan O’Brien were married on May 22, 2008 in Vernazza (Cinque Terre), Italy.


Both Jordan and Katie have always been environmentally conscious, so planning their wedding with eco-friendly elements was more of a foregone conclusion than a decision to be made. At the time, Jordan was working towards his MBA in Sustainable Enterprise & Real Estate Development to go into green building, so he was especially focused on sustainability and the nuances of greening.
