When I first met with Alia and Josh and they told me about their plans for their wedding, I smiled to myself and thought, “Wow, here is something that is going to be absolutely magical.” Then we rolled up to Alia’s family’s house in Calistoga, and that feeling grew. I know this film is a little longer than our usual length, but I assure you, watching this film will be worth it… and might even change the way you think about a wedding.
There are so many things I loved about their wedding. First, I loved that it was a multiple day event. Like they say in the film, they wanted to spend time with all of their family and friends. With multiple events, they had a chance to spend quality time with everyone.
The second thing I loved was how “custom” their experience was. They considered every little detail and thought about how to make everything relevant to their relationship. The result was a wedding experience that was filled with meaning, charm, and personality. One such detail was how they both decided to wear a certain scent for the week leading up to the wedding and during the wedding, so that they would have a smell associated with the wedding experience. What a cool way to bring back memories.
I was also incredibly impressed by Alia and Josh themselves. Their deep love for each other seemed like something that would have taken years and years to develop. In reality, they had been dating for a bit more than a year! Both of them have an incredible sense of what life is all about. And let’s not forget to mention their bold sense of style. Love it!
