Irish & Italian American Wedding

Irish-American meets Italian-American as Lidia's niece and goddaughter Estelle ties the knot. The couple celebrate their heritage with both a traditional Irish wedding cake and some classic Venetian desserts, while Lidia explores the true significance of wedding celebrations. "It sort of trickles down, this thread of who the family is, the strength of the family, the love of the family…" she says. "This thread trickles down and carries on into this new family that's being formed."
