The Couple
Amongst the clutter of their home remodel, Frank got down on his knees and said, “Allison, I’d like to make this house ‘our home.’ Will you marry me?” She joined him on her knees and said yes.

The Details
Big City Bride attended to the day’s chic details. At the couple’s request for a floating party, Limelight catering styled multiple food stations scattered about the modern space.

The Party
The couple flew in singer/songwriter Meiko from L.A. to perform their first dance song, “How Lucky We Are,” in the courtyard. Later, The Gold Coast All Stars rocked the dance party.
