Alisha & Lucas definitely hold a special place in our hearts over here at Cristen & Co.. Alisha called me up on January 21, 2016 while I was going to pick up my birthday cake from Sweet Indulgence – yes, I remember the exact date and what I was doing. She told me they loved one another so much and they wanted to spend this year accomplishing life goals together as a married couple… And, then she told me they wanted to get married on Leap Day in just 5 weeks at Warehouse XI in Somerville, Massachusetts. YES, 5 weeks!!! Well, of course I said heck yes, let’s plan this fabulous wedding!
After planning a 7 week wedding, I knew I could handle it. I enjoyed my Skype calls with Alisha and Lucas almost every day (since they lived in Chicago) and I was able to get to know these two on such a personal level; they both are very intelligent, kind, generous and full of goofiness and laughter, I knew these two were perfect for one another.
They both met in Japan on study abroad so we decided to go with a Wabi Sabi Brunch Wedding tailored to their personalities and the Wabi Sabi aesthetic; calming, simple, natural and organic. And, their wedding day was full of love, laughter and fun! Their closest friends and families flew in from all over to Boston to celebrate the love these two have for each other. I am so thankful they allowed me to come into their lives and plan such a special day.
I couldn’t have pulled it off without a fabulous team of friends and wedding pros:
