Alia + Josh

Calistoga | May 27

Alia and Josh were such an amazing couple to work with from the beginning. Their passion and their love showed through above all and I could not wait to be a part of their wedding celebration. Long-distance planning is never the easiest, especially while both bride and groom were in medical school. With a trip back west and many productive meetings paired with frequent phone check-ins, we were able to work together to create the amazing day that was the start to their wedding weekend. 
 
Designing this wedding was amazing! Having a couple not afraid of bright colors and really wanting to fit into the wonderful spring environment gave Natalie Bowen and I the freedom to create a wonderful atmosphere for Alia, Josh, their family and friends. They chose to have a more free flowing reception with stationed food and cocktail seating paired with poolside cocktails, a Moroccan tent, cigar bar and the Motown funk band resulted in a wonderful energy and a celebration lasting late into the night. 
 
See Alia and Josh's feature in the New York Times wedding section to get to know a bit more about this awesome couple. Alia and Josh's wedding was also featured on Wedding Chicks and stay tuned to the new season of Say Yes To The Dress this fall - Alia and her beautiful Claire Pettibone gown are going to be on the show! 
 
Holding back the photos from this wedding by the fantastic Andrew Weeks was not the easiest thing for me; I am so happy to finally be sharing these images with everyone.  
 
Enjoy!
