What an absolutely amazing evening! Working with Amanda and Leah was an absolute dream! They were so in love, there was a Pooh Bear costume, delicious food stations and donuts, and the weather even decided to cooperate for cocktail hour. These two knew how to throw a party! 

We were honored to witness their commitment to each other. These are truly the nights when our job doesn't feel like our job. Congratulations, Amanda and Leah! We love you!

Nate + Justin were an absolute joy to work with. The love in the room that day was palpable. Everything - from the cool decor to their puppy ring bearer to the serious partying after the ceremony - was perfect and we were so pleased to get to be a part of it all. We hope they and their sweet baby are loving their lives together.

AELO Alumni | Michael + Thomas 8/8/15

VENUE: W HOTEL | PHOTOGRAPHY: CAMPBELL PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIOS | FLORIST: EXQUISITE DESIGNS | CAKE: ALLIANCE BAKERY 

Quite possibly the most adorable couple of ALL TIME. Michael and Thomas planned a beautiful wedding, and we absolutely loved it. M&T was the theme, and they did a "Who's the Bride?" contest, which Michael won by a landslide! And the Polaroids used for voting were priceless. Their choreographed dance with LIFTS had everyone in the room cheering, and we were just so happy to be a part of this incredible day! The staff of the W, the vendors, the couple...everything about it was just wonderful. We wish M&T a lifetime of happiness!
