Item description for Maria's Wedding by Nunzio Defilippis...
Few events exude as much joy, happiness, and hope as a wedding, and for the Pirellis these ceremonies mean even more. Pirelli weddings are about tradition and family as much as they're about the happy couple, or at least they used to be. When Joseph Pirelli married Matthew it rocked the clan to its knees. Now a year later, the tension and downright animosity between different factions of the family have turned Maria's special day into a powder keg. And poor Frankie, Joseph's outspoken brother, is holding the match. But while some fear the fuse being lit, others in the family are ready for and secretly looking forward to the blow-up. Frankie, on the other hand, thinks his reputation for speaking his mind is undeserved. He just wants to see his favorite cousin get married and maybe rekindle his childhood romance with Maria's maid of honor, Brenna. Can Frankie balance the Pirellis expectations of him with his own or will the scales tip and bring the whole ceremony crashing down?

I don't know what that other idiot is talking about Mar 7, 2007
Assuming you can stand an acknowledgement that yes, there are gay couples in the world, this is a very good little graphic novel that captures the feel of a family gathering very well. It definately reminds me of the last three I've been to!
By the end you do feel like you know this family and can identify with the main character's conflicting feelings of love and frustration with them. The artwork is simple but expressive and the story is just the right length. I enjoyed it very much.
