This lighthouse wedding in New Haven, Connecticut was absolutely stunning! Meet our featured couple, Aliza and Mike. Aliza tells us, “When Mike and I started to plan our wedding we knew we wanted to keep it true to who we were. We wanted to honor some of the traditional elements of a wedding but still make sure the experience was indicative of our fun and lighthearted personalities. When we saw Lighthouse Point Park for the first time we knew it was where we wanted to get married. From the beautiful beach, to the breathtaking lighthouse, to the whimsical carousel, we couldn’t have dreamed up a better venue. Some of our favorite memories include our first look on the beach, saying ‘I do’ under the chuppa my mom crocheted, our boardwalk style menu, ice cream truck and riding the carousel to Justin Bieber. We still can’t believe how perfect the entire day was thanks to all of our vendors and family and friends who celebrated with us.” See their incredible wedding photographs by David from Butler Photography, LLC

Jesse + Grant’s “Elopecation”: A Small Colorado Wedding


Jesse and Grant’s small Colorado wedding was perfect for them! They took part in a new wedding trend called “elopecation” where a couple elopes and has a vacation immediately following. This beautiful couple was married this summer among Colorado’s breathtaking mountains. Being an adventurous couple and looking to plan a small private wedding, they sought the help of planner Stephanie from TWO Colorado. Stephanie tells us, “Jesse and Grant are an active couple, so road-tripping from St. Louis to Southern Colorado for their elopement was a natural choice for them. They grabbed their four closest friends and headed west for a week of kayaking, hiking in the Great Sand Dunes National Park, eating great local food, and getting married, of course! TWO Colorado was a perfect choice for them with their out of the way locations in the hills of the San Juan Mountains enabling them to have a private ceremony in the beautiful outdoors.”
