Michael & Elyse | Casa Feliz | Winter Park, FL
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.
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!!
