Long story short – Stephen and I finally met after two years of my cousin trying to set us up because she thought we’d be a great match for each other. I was a college student at the time and bartended at his family bar. He came in to manage the bar one night and that’s where we officially met and the rest is history.
Having Pinterest wedding inspirations since years ago, I knew exactly what I wanted when it came to searching for a venue. The reason I chose The Villa, specifically the Madera Room is because a warm and intimate wedding with a romantic, slight rustic feel was very important to me. Out of the 20+ venues I’ve considered, The Villa stood out to me because it had all the potential I needed to transform my vision into a wedding I’ve always dreamed of. Then the staff and everyone that I’ve come across was like the icing on the cake, that I just couldn’t resist but to choose to work with the Saphire Event Group!
Both mine and Stephen’s favorite part of the wedding has got to be the ceremony! It was beautifully decorated to exactly what I have envisioned. Everything just went so smoothly and well-coordinated by the event coordinator and all staff. It was definitely the most memorable part of the day!
