Elopements are magical on their own, bringing a sense of intimacy and ocean of emotions. Karolina and Ross, today’s couple, eloped in Las Vegas a few years ago as Ross prepared to deploy.
These high school lovebirds celebrated again, three years later, with a marriage blessing and vow renewal at Joan of Arc Catholic Church and Venetian, in front of their friends and family. The mix of Old World charm and classic Italian architecture and gardens at the hotel appealed to the couple, Karolina especially.
A ballroom bubbling over with blooms designed by Naakiti Floral and event design from Andrea Eppolito brought the evening together in such an elegant European fashion. I am especially enchanted by the traditions and customs they wove into their day. From Polish toasts to serving dessert first to their guests at the banquet, life (and love) is sweet for these two.
