Alisha met Michael shortly after her first day at work for the American Red Cross. Learning more and more about each other over several months, and realizing their parents came from the same small village in Italy, the two started dating.
After a trip to Orlando to celebrate Michael’s parents’ 50th anniversary, they decided to extend their vacation for a few wonderful days in Key West. They stopped at Bahia Honda State Park, and after walking along the water, Michael asked Alisha to marry him. While celebrating their proposal from their balcony, they saw a ceremony taking place below them.
With the perfect venue selected, the couple turned their attention towards design and color palettes. Alisha knew she wanted a romantic and classic wedding with a fun and surprising twist. The main color palette for the ceremony was white and green with small touches of peach and red throughout the decor.
The day was full of special moments. Sixty-six family members and friends traveled from eight different states and England to be a part of their wedding event. They were even able to Skype Michael’s 104-year-old grandmother during the wedding.
Alisha couldn’t imagine a more perfect wedding day. “I have visioned my wedding day since I was a little girl, and with the help of my vendors and a beautiful location I was able to make my vision come to life. It was a gorgeous day and all the events of the day went smoothly. Our day was a success and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.”
