Annette Nicole and Christian Perry first met on the dance floor while training at a studio in New York City. This passion for dance would take them both around the world as competitors in the World Ballroom Dance Championships. After ten years of dating and dancing, Annette and Christian became engaged. Following their love for entertaining, the couple moved to Los Angeles to teach choreography in both film and television, for such shows as Dancing with the Stars. Like something out of a Disney fairytale, Annette arrived for the wedding ceremony at the Cravens Estate in Pasadena on horseback. Councilman Steve Madison officiated at the ceremony, which was attended by friends and guests from Greenwich to Europe.
The bride, daughter of Michael and Rose Pinchuk of Greenwich, graduated from Greenwich High School and the New York Institute of Technology. Annette is a project manager at Fish Construction Company.
The groom, son of Steven Pencille and Maria Rivera of Los Angeles, graduated from Valley High School and the New York Institute of Technology. Christian is a financial advisor with Penniall and Associates and he owns a chain of Ballroom Dance Studios called Christian Perry’s Havin’ A Ball.
The new Mr. and Mrs. Perry returned home to Pasadena after honeymooning in France, Poland, Slovakia and Spain
