Christine Marie Cacace & Christopher Russell Mahanna

On a perfect Cape Cod evening this past July, Christine Marie Cacace and Christopher Russell Mahanna exchanged marriage vows at the Wychmere Beach Club in Harwich Port, Massachusetts. They were joined by family and friends who traveled from more than a dozen states for the celebration. Maria Allen, a close friend of the bride and groom, officiated the ceremony. Guests dined and danced before enjoying an ice-cream bar set up by the Cape’s well-known Sundae School.

The bride, daughter of Maureen and Michael Cacace of Stamford, received her undergraduate degree from the University of Vermont and master’s degree in social work from Columbia University. She is currently Vice President of Strategy and Operational Effectiveness at Norwalk’s Family & Children’s Agency. She also teaches yoga locally in Norwalk and Westport, and is a member of Impact Fairfield County.

The groom, son of Louise Mahanna and the late George Mahanna, Jr. of Middleboro, Massachusetts, graduated from Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management and is currently a Senior Technical Account Manager at Amazon Web Services. While the couple resides in Norwalk, Cape Cod will always hold a special place in their hearts.
