Real Wedding: Kosta and Auburn

How did you meet? We were introduced by a close friend, and got very lucky that we were a perfect match! We both knew immediately, and we’ve been together ever since that first meeting day.

How did the proposal happen? We were planning a trip to London over the summer to go to Wimbledon and we decided to start the trip in Paris. Kosta proposed on the second day of the trip in front of the Eiffel Tower, and it truly was a fairytale! The remainder of our two week vacation felt like a pre honeymoon. Kosta is the most thoughtful person I have ever met in my life (part of one of the many reasons why I married him), planning every detail to make sure that it was one of the most special days of our lives! Second to our wedding of course 🙂

Why did you choose a Cescaphe Wedding? We always knew that we wanted to go with Cescaphe. We have attended many events and weddings at the different Cescaphe venues and nothing in the city compares. The amazing customer service and attention to all the small details really impressed us. We felt extremely comfortable hosting our wedding of 400 people at Vie. From booking the venue to closing out the end of our wedding night, the entire process was easy, stress free, and flawlessly handled. There’s nothing I would have changed about that night, except to be able to do it over and over again 🙂 We look forward to hosting future events at any of the amazing Cescaphe venues!!

What was your favorite part about wedding planning? We are very detailed people in general, and put a lot of thought even in the small things. I would say we cared equally about every planning detail for the wedding, from the font on the dinner menu to our over the top floral decor at the reception that we planned out. 

What was your favorite part of your wedding? Everything – equal parts!!! 

What did you do to make your wedding day extra special? We put a lot of thought into the flowers and the decor at the reception. We wanted to do something special  

What advice would you give to future brides and grooms? Have fun and enjoy the planning process, the day goes by too quickly!
