Who says long distance relationships can’t work when true love is the foundation? Luke and Gia crossed paths at a lounge in New York City and they both knew it was love at first sight! While Luke finished his schooling in Connecticut and Gia was living in New Jersey, they drove countless miles back and forth between states to secure their relationship. After 5 years of dating, Luke had finished his medical residency and took a one-year fellowship in New Jersey to be closer to Gia. On a special Saturday afternoon, Gia found a trail of rose petals leading into the apartment bedroom, with candles glowing and the music of Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take my Eyes Off You” in the background. Getting down on one knee, Luke popped the question. And the rest is history…

The bride is the daughter of her father, Gustavo Viacava, of Lima, Peru and her mother, Giannelli Kirgin and stepfather, Kenneth Kirgin, of Garfield, NJ. Gia attended the New Jersey Institute of Technology, earning both her B.S. in Engineering Management and M.S. in Professional and Technical Communications. She is currently still enjoying her newlywed role as homemaker.

The groom is the son of Andrew and Cynthia Aldo, of Cheshire. Luke attended Fordham University in New York, went to Medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, and completed his internship and residency at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He is employed as an Anesthesiologist with Hartford Anesthesia Associates.

Luke and Gia were married at the Church of Immaculate Conception in Montclair, NJ with a reception that followed in Cedar Grove, NJ. After honeymooning in Tahiti, the couple now resides in West Hartford.
