Via Bella Estates Wedding – Beatriz & Stephano

Beatriz and Stephano first met two years ago, although they attended the same High School, they actually didn’t meet until afterward. Social media was the key to getting to know one another. “We saw that we attended the same High School and started following each other online. After liking each others pictures and talking online for a while Stephano finally asked me out on a date” recounts Beatriz of the beginning of their relationship. After a couple of dates, they just clicked and Stephano asked Beatriz to be his girlfriend. They instantly knew that they were meant to be with one another. It wasn’t long after they met that they already began talking about their future together. “We make each other better people” says Beatriz, “there’s no question we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.”

Being young and just starting out, Beatriz and Stephano knew they couldn’t afford a big wedding, and chose to elope instead. “We chose to elope because we’re in love and we want to be with each other, we didn’t want to wait” explained Beatriz on her choice for a simple ceremony between them both. The Tuscan inspired location in the Redlands, Via Bella Estates, was the perfect backdrop for their intimate and romantic elopement. “I still wanted something beautiful that captured our special day and that would give us memories and pictures to last me a lifetime.” It was a truly memorable and detailed elopement, one that made Beatriz and Stephano feel as though they had experienced everything they would have experienced in a grand affair.

As not to detract from the beauty of the location Beatriz decided to go for a very natural and elegant look for her dress and decor. The bride entered alone into the ceremony space, a beautifully constructed marble and iron canopy, to meet her groom. Afterwards, they celebrated their marriage with some drinks and snacks. Skillfully crafted reclaimed furniture was adorned with soft white peonies and vibrant greenery, including rosemary which took center stage all throughout the decor. Gold touches throughout the decor added a touch of elegance. A double barrel table held their snacks, an array of different styles of pizzas (including the Bride and Groom’s favorites) as well as some olive oil, bread, and olives. They shared a special cocktail together, a limoncello topped with some rosemary. A beautiful naked cake was the sweet ending to a wonderful celebration.

“This was everything we dreamed about and more. Although we couldn’t have a big wedding, I feel as though I didn’t miss out on it. I experienced everything a bride would experience on her big day. No detail was missing.”
