For the Love of Chocolate
It all started with a shared piece of chocolate cake for Amber and Felipe (Lady and the Tramp style). They met on a Euro-trip with friends and after hour six of them meeting for the first time the rest was history!
On Sunday, May 28th we were able to take part in their special day. We learned about their love for chocolate, their passion for mac and cheese, and got a little back story on how this couple got to where they are today. While in Europe, everyone from the trip bought a bottle of wine in Italy and vowed to save it until the group was able to get together again. Well, the groom kept this promise. It was 5 years ago that they took their trip and Felipe brought with him the bottle of wine he’s been saving until the group was able to come back together. “There was something special about this girl,” he said. With a little speech to their guests about the significance of the wine, they then all toasted to Amber and Felipe’s love with the beautifully aged red he saved for this very moment.
Wine aside, there were many other special touches that made this day so wonderful. They had a beautifully decorated “Beauty and the Beast” inspired chandelier hung above the dance floor, elegant farm tables to create their head table, a wide assortment of spectacular desserts, and the forever-famous antique car that swept them away at the end of the night!
Well done gang! Another one in the books.
