This love story started as a college romance and turned into a life filled with adventure. From biking in Provence to exploring Martha's Vineyard, they never turned down an opportunity to experience something new. Mimi and Greg shared their love for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and had even visited the set together too. They have been snorkeling and swimming with giant manta rays. They have explored new countries. They have gone through many stages of life together, even moving to different cities - which they say was the craziest adventure of all.
Now they are finally cozy at home where they love playing board games, working out, watching sporting events, hosting parties, and entertaining. They love their little family which includes Janet, their mini poodle they inherited from the bride's late twin sister.
The engagement was really something special and happened while on a family trip in Bhutan. Bhutan is a Buddhist kingdom on the eastern edge of the Himalayas. It has stunning views and is known for the monasteries, fortresses called dzongs, and dramatic landscapes. There is diverse geography that ranges from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. Mimi + Greg were craving some more adventure and took a hike to a monastery. During the hike, Greg stopped under a historic tree and SURPRISE he popped the question.
At night, we focused on lighting to set the mood and create that laid back atmosphere. One of our favorite parts of this wedding was the music! Mimi loved a band from the US and flew them over for her special day. It was absolutely worth it! Every single guest was out on the dance floor dancing the night away.
Good music, great food, and impeccable design was top priority for these two. One thing that they didn't want was an expensive or flashy cake. Instead, they chose to feature Greg's favorite dessert, Donuts, at the late-night snack!
