We’re loving this Spring Bella Collina wedding with the most incredible Protea bouquets, bold colors and custom Chuppah! Their decadent Jewish wedding was followed by a Santorini honeymoon!
Romantic Spring Bella Collina Wedding
May 12, 2018 | Erika & Michael
I don’t even know where to begin with this gorgeous Bella Collina wedding celebrating the union of Erika and Mike! Every detail was thoughtfully planned, from the bridesmaid’s rompers to the reception musicians! We lavished in the impeccable floral design and couldn’t get enough of Erika’s bridal style. She even had her veil custom designed to match the lace in her gown! However, I can’t talk about the wedding day without first talking about Erika and Mike!
After officially meeting in middle school, it wasn’t until Mike’s cousin (who was Erika’s best friend) formally introduced them after college! Erika said, “I couldn’t believe I had ever lived life without him, and knew I would never want to again!”
The proposal came as a complete surprise! On Erika’s birthday, Michael set up a surprise party disguised as a birthday dinner to catch her off guard. When she entered the house, 75 people shouted surprise! Then, they lead her outside down a trail of rose petals to Mike. He asked her to spend the rest of their lives together, and she said ‘yes!’
Planning a big Jewish wedding was no small task, and Erika enlisted the help of expert event planner Alison Watkins from Blush. Following their Ketubah signing, Erika and Mike married on the lush lawn of Bella Collina under a beautiful floral Chuppah created by Raining Roses. For their reception, they flew in 2 electric violinists from Mexico, which they were super excited about!
Following their wedding, Erika and Michael honeymooned on the gorgeous island of Santorini, Greece. We’ve all been following their travels and the gorgeous sunsets of Oia. Congratulations to Erika and Michael from the entire KWP team and we can’t wait to see you for your next adventure!
