Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of meeting our bride and groom, Ilea and Matias, at their semi-surprise bridal shower. Ilea and Matias knew that their bridal shower was happening that day, and were somewhat informed by their friends and family about what to expect, but they still had quite a few surprises in store!
For starters, they knew to head over to Il Villaggio, but had no idea how many guests would greet them there. And, two guests in particular would make the surprise that much more special– Matias parents followed up the rest of the guests and popped out to surprise the couple after their entrance! The shock and excitement was clear on their faces as Ilea and Matias took in the awesome atmosphere their friends and family had created for them. The roaring 20’s theme was inspired by The Great Gatsby and was represented through their favors and decorations. Everything from their cake to the guest’s attire was sporting feathers and retro charm; my personal favorite were the cigars and mini bottles of bourbon that were personalized with the couple’s names and wedding date.
It was clear how much love surrounded this couple. The intimate feeling of the party, the close hugs, and the mini-engagement shoot of the two emanated timeless romance, which was captured perfectly by their party theme. The couple tied the knot this past weekend, so keep an eye on our new posts to see more of this charming duo.
