Love at First Swipe

As coordinator Kelle Collier prepared the beautiful Granite Bay Golf Club for the intimate wedding, Mia and Justin remembered their beginning. They met on a dating app in 2017. After talking with each other for a little bit, they decided to meet the next day. Their first date was for lunch the next day. Lunch turned into dinner turned into breakfast. They spent the whole weekend together just talking and getting to know each other… platonically. From that day on, they were inseparable.

The gorgeous mahogany walls of The Library were lined with windows and shelves of books creating a richness and elegance. In addition, the fire in the stone fireplace glowed with warmth on this December day. The club’s classic holiday decorations intermingled with the details of the wedding decor added to the romance of the day.

The tablescapes shimmered with gold accents that played against the candlelight. The favors and napkins were a beautiful mix of holiday green and red that stood out against the cream tablecloths.

Getting Glamorous

Mia got ready at Thunder Valley Casino Resort with the help of her best friend and Maid of Honor, Kelly. They hugged and laughed together in matching personalized robes as Mia got ready for her big day.

The Groom Looked So GQ

First Moments and Vows

On this occasion, Mia and Justin decided to modify the wedding tradition a bit. They didn’t want to see each other, but they enjoyed an intimate moment together to only say their vows to each other.
