Backyard and Venue Hybrid

Very rarely do I ever help put together a wedding for friends who are near and dear to me. When it came time to help my friend, Billy, I could not have been more overjoyed. I first met him through my husband, who has known Billy since preschool. When Billy met Evandro, it was truly a match. Evandro took a leap of faith and moved from Brazil to the states to begin a new chapter of his life. He met Billy and the two could not be happier. For their wedding, they wanted a super intimate ceremony in his family's backyard and later a reception that included close family and friends.

In order to keep the wedding as intimate as possible, they enlisted the help of close family and friends. The florist is a fellow colleague of Evandro's, Billy's father was at the DJ booth, and the officiant is a close friend and fitness trainer to the family. They came to me for help with their wedding vision, graphic designs, and day-of coordination. For the ceremony location, the two of them chose the backyard of Billy's family. The property has a wonderful view of Central NJ and has been renovated down to the very last detail. For the reception, everyone met at Olde Mill Inn for a night of amazing drinks, food, and dancing.

Congrats to one amazing couple!
