Elia and Joe are longtime friends of our Owner and Creative Director, Nicole! Being close friends, it was an extra special experience to get the chance to help plan and design their wedding from the day they got engaged through their tears on their wedding day (there’s nothing like seeing some of your best friends tear up seeing each other for the first time on that day!). But what really made Elia + Joe’s celebration so special was how every detail was intentional, personal, and truly reflected their unique personalities. From the vibrant color palate to match their colorful and outgoing personalities (and Elia’s hair!), the garden theme to reflect Joe’s green thumb, their food truck as an ode to their love of yummy street food, to the Beatles tribute band which incorporated their eclectic musical tastes…their wedding was definitely their style through and through and we loved every single bit. To top it off, the venue was actually a family friend’s home that has been passed down through generations.  Joe spent months and months re-landscaped and customizing the gardens, landscape, and lighting himself which made the night even more sentimental and intimate. They truly had a hand in every detail to make it their own. We truly wish Elia & Joe all the best and can’t wait to follow along in their next adventure!
