It all began with availability and coffee. Â There was a home with an available room and Larissa was lucky enough to snag it up. Â It was a great place made even better with the amazing housemates she would soon become very close with. Â Including another available prospect named Chris. Â Besides the fact that Larissa was instantly attracted, their first real interaction was actually one of annoyance with each other. Coffee was the reason. He had drank all the coffee and Larissa’s coffee is not to be messed with atÂ 6am. Â Fast forward a few weeks later after Chris had moved out, they had startedÂ talking on the phone and seeing each other from time to time as friends. Â But then Chris’s friendly gestures got more and more romantic and sweet. HeÂ would show up at her house and leave plants or flowers for her. Her favorite was when he would come to her work at the end of the day, like clockwork, delivering her favorite coffee…always with a sweet note inscribed on the lid. She still has all of these coffee lids to this day. Â When I heard this story at the wedding,Â I was covered in goosebumps as IÂ love of all things sentimental and romantic! Â I mean, this is Nicholas Sparks material! Â Their wedding was equally romantic, set in a wooded area with manicured gardens surrounding the grounds. At night the entire venue lit up with tiny white lights and hanging chandeliers. Â It was picture perfect! Â Larissa was inspired by Emily Maynard’s wedding palette of light, summery peach and cream colors, which was perfect for their wedding setting. Â I just loved being a part of this special celebration and wish them the best!
