Photos: The Venetian and The Palazzo Kick Off Winter In Venice with Gilles Marini, Dot-Marie Jones and Chip Davis

It was truly a family affair as actor and Dancing with The Stars All Stars contestant Gilles Marini and his family joined The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas to kick off the second annual Winter in Venice.

This year, Winter in Venice is featuring a new marquee element, an exclusive six-week run of “Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Las Vegas by Chip Davis,” featuring beloved and iconic holiday music in The Palazzo Theatre who was also present to enjoy the Winter in Venice festivities. Also in attendance was Glee’s Dot-Marie Jones along with a few of her close family and friends.

Gilles Marini was joined by his wife Carole, daughter Juiliana, and son Georges. Marini’s leading lady arrived on the red carpet looking stunning in a black David’s Bridal dress and a Charmed Circle Initial Necklace. The youngest Marini, daughter Juiliana, wore a matching Charmed Circle necklace, and looked adorable in a Wunway dress and shoes.

The close-knit family enjoyed some of the festivities that Winter in Venice had to offer including the famous Gondola Ride, skating at the first rink on the Las Vegas strip, and posing for family photos in front of the large Christmas Tree. Marini and his daughter Juiliana joined the crowd at The Venetian to flip the switch igniting the clock tower light show and the Winter in Venice parade.

The Dancing With the Stars All Star proved that Winter in Venice is not only a perfect place for the entire family, but also that you can still celebrate the holidays on the west coast remarking, “It’s December, it’s still 70 degrees outside, but here at The Venetian, the vibe is still snowy and wintery, I love it!”

For the Marini Family, this Thanksgiving is a special one for them. Gilles stated, “This is the first time I’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving as an American, my wife will be preparing a huge feast, we want to do everything as traditional as possible!”

But on everyone’s mind as Marini walked onto property – who does he think will win this season of Dancing With The Stars All Stars? “My heart says Val and Kelly. She has a really good sense of the show. I love them on and off the camera. They are real. But who is gonna win? Derek Hough. Enough said!”
