Michael & Elyse | Casa Feliz | Orlando

Mikey and Elyse's love story began long ago...

We grew up in the same town (Orlando) and had common friends throughout high school and college but never knew each other. We finally met in college through friends and dated briefly for 4 months. We were young and dumb and parted ways, but the universe wasn't done with us. 

We still shared all of the same friends and over 6 years ended up hanging out in the same circles. We gravitated toward one another slowly and eventually ended up as best friends. 

Finally after six years of happy friendship, we were both single and wishing we could each find someone as cool as each other. Elyse was the first to realize what we had in each other and made the first move (she's the brave one). That was four years ago and we have never looked back. 

Mikey popped the question this May and we couldn't be happier together. Not everyone gets to marry their best friend. Both of our families and our friends are thrilled to see us FINALLY married. (Apparently they've all been predicting this for years). 

Our favorite part of our wedding was dancing together for the first time as husband and wife with all of our closest family and friends watching and supporting us. Rebekkah and her team were amazing and took care of all of the details and behind the scenes affairs giving us the chance to relish in the moment knowing everything was taken care of. We couldn't be happier with her and her team and are forever grateful to Runway Events for making our special day picture perfect.

From Rebekkah...

The moment I met Elyse we bonded immediately. I absolutely LOVED her design with Moroccan inspired industrial theme with copper, teal and rose gold. We brainstormed the design and came up with gorgeous floral with hanging greenery from the tent, gold terrariums and navy taper candles. Plus, Elyse and Michael are the sweetest people alive and I wanted to immediately be best friends. I am so in love with how everything came together!!

Review from Jessica...

"Rebekkah and her team were such a huge asset to our wedding! Leading up to the day, she kept us organized and answered all of our questions and addressed our concerns. We thought we'd be able to handle it ourselves with our family, but planning a wedding with 200+ people and a dozen vendors is no joke. Rebekkah makes it look easy. We live in New York, so we did a lot of Skype/FaceTime sessions and the day of the wedding it felt like we were old friends even though we'd technically never "met"! The day of our wedding, Rebekkah was on top of almost everything - keeping everyone on schedule, coordinating with vendors, keeping me hydrated lol. She was there for me personally and went above and beyond in so many ways that I never imagined I would need, but did! Rebekkah is truly a sweetheart, a real gem of a person. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a full on planner or even just a day of coordinator to help you keep it together! " 


When I first started talking to Jessica about the design I was like "OH EM GEEEE It's going to be so gorgeous!". Anytime you mention hanging floral or archways on the New York skyline my heart flutters a little. ;) It was just as gorgeous as she envisioned and I couldn't help but insta story the crap out of it! 

I love love love New York. I love the chaos of the city, the gorgeous views and delicious food pretty much anywhere you go. I love how Jessica, Larry (and Jessica's super sweet mom Cheryl! ) encompassed their love of the city and a romantic garden party all in one. 

Also, to top it off- this wedding was featured in one of my favorite blogs Green Wedding Shoes

Oh yes, and if it couldn't get any better. Jessica changed to a jumpsuit. #obsessed. See more below!

#RunslaySwag Product Launch!

Literally one of the most exciting things was to design Runway shirts. It's been something I've always wanted to do and I'm so happy that they came out so gorg! 

Our planners, Olivia and Amy modeled the shirts (seriously - how did I get so lucky!?) and then Jules, Andraya, Frankie (my hubby - aka Mr. Runway) and I snuck in towards the end. 

 The Lemons killed it with these awesome shots. Want to buy a shirt? Click HERE. They are only $20!
