Devon and Carizza planned this stylish fete in only ten weeks. It does not hurt that Carizza works for one of the best event and styling teams around, In The Now Weddings & Events, who pulled together to create a cohesive, love-centered event. Filled to the brim with stylish details including a way cute heart design that was carried thorough out the event. From the invitations to all the signage, it was even placed as a decal on their getaway car. Way Cute!
How perfect does our, Orange Ombre Heart Tote go with Carizza and Devon’s heart theme? They look even more fantastic paired with the bridesmaids navy and burnt-orange cardigans. Très chic!
From The Bride:
No matter how many weddings you’ve attended, worked on, been in, or read about, there is nothing like planning your own. Being a part of the wedding industry is an amazing blessing. But being a bride on the other side of things, I felt a lot of pressure at first, mostly self-inflicted. With our engagement being a short 10 weeks, Devon pulled me aisde one day, hugged me, and reminded me, “This isn’t for the industry. This is for us.” Words of the man I fell in love with. From there, wedding planning was as purposeful as the gravitational pull of the Earth. We poured out love into every detail, because we wanted that love to be shown and shared with our guests. Every part of the wedding was designed to invite our guests to share in our favorite parts of life together.
Our logo and invitation suite was designed by Amanda, my boss at In The Now, my mentor, friend and cheerleader in this whole wedding process. Along with the entire ITN team, each vendor that was picked with care, people who were stoked about life and passionate about what they do – and it showed! We were blessed to have them carry out such a cohesive, love-centered event. Devon and I walked down the aisle together, to reflect that we were entering into this marriage together. His dad was our officiant. We picked our weekly date night food truck as our caterers, to share that special experience with our guests. Our last dance was to “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” by The Darkness. Each choice surrounding the wedding meant something to us. Our wedding had a clear message to start our marriage off right and to share a very important message to our guests: love each other.
