The warm tones in Alfonzo and Johnny’s wedding with the added bright pops of red and blue defiantly bring the wow factor! The couple met their freshman year of college and knew they had a special connection the moment they met. Johnny popped the question in the exact spot where the two first said, “I love you.” After the sentimental engagement, the couple began planning their dream wedding with An Event To Remember at Ma Maison. Alfonzo and Johnny started their day getting ready together with friends. The couple felt the importance of going through the entire day as one. And we love that they did! After the bridal party was all glammed up, the couple made their way to the venue. Alfonzo and Johnny both slipped into their dazzling suits, Alfonzo in a dreamy red and Johnny in luxe blue. Finally, it was time to say I do!

 

Alfonzo and Johnny met at the altar under the most beautiful floral arch from Flora Fetish to say, “I do.” After exchanging their written vows, the couple sealed their happily ever after with a kiss. Following the ceremony, guests made their way to the terrace for cocktail hour, where a string quartet filled the air with music. After cocktail hour, guests entered the grand hall to find gorgeous drapery accenting the tall ceilings and creating a romantic environment. The sweetest part of Alfonzo and Johnny’s day was the dessert bar from Bonjour Brigadeiro Handcrafted Chocolate & Treats. Finally, Alfonzo and Johnny danced the night away before their sparkler sendoff. The couple shared about their sendoff, “cheers and love filled the air. It was the perfect way to close the perfect day.” We are excited to share more details from Alfonzo and Johnny’s special day below. Keep scrolling!

 

 

Alfonzo and Johnny’s Dream Wedding Maker:

“By far, our wedding planner, Shamika with An Event to Remember, was our favorite and most helpful vendor. Shamika completely understood our vision from the moment we met, and there was this instant connection! No dream was too big! With every idea, Shamika knew exactly what vendors would be able to bring it to life. She made the entire wedding planning experience fun, exciting and seamless.”
