This sweet couple met the summer before their junior year of high school through a mutual friend. Ariel proposed to Nelu 10 years later in an unforgettable way. Nelu's friend Amanda convinced her that they would be going to a brunch in Beverly Hills, when in reality, Ariel was waiting with a collage banner of photos reading "Will you marry me?" Friends and family were there to celebrate the engagement!
Nelu dreamed of a garden vibe for the wedding, with white and green florals paired with pops of light-hued pastels. Butterfy Florals crafted the prettiest design for the celebration, including Nelu's amazing bouquet and the breathtaking chuppah, adorned in an incredible display of blush and cream flowers and accented with greenery. The ceremony space was gorgeous, with a sleek white aisle graced with flower petals raised slightly above the guests, giving the space a very regal feel.
Guests made their way to a beautiful reception space, where grand centerpieces overflowing with florals and elegant gold decor took center stage. LIV Entertainment provided the party for the night, and dinner and dancing was the perfect way to celebrate Nelu and Ariel.
A stand-out moment for the couple was the first look, as the two decided not to see each other for a few nights leading up to the wedding day. Nelu claims it was "the most amazing moment of the night" when they finally saw each other on the big day.
