The Proposal

Shelby and Payton first met in high school, when the two were set up on a blind date. After meeting, the couple knew they were made for each other. Payton proposed on a rainy day in May, taking Shelby out to dinner for what she thought was a celebration for finishing her finals. After dinner, they returned to Shelby’s house, where she began to sense that something was up. Payton took Shelby’s hand and led her to the walking path behind her house, which he had covered in rose petals. Payton walked her to a spot decorated with string lights and asked Shelby her favorite question yet.

In Preparation

With the help of their team of planners, Shelby and Payton prepared for the wedding of their dreams: a stunning Italian spring-inspired wedding, a fusion of black-tie sophistication and delicate floral arrangements. The couple collaborated with vendors to curate each detail, ensuring that Shelby’s silk gown exuded elegance and that Payton’s tuxedo was sophisticatedly refined. The artisans worked diligently to transform the Philbrook into a botanical garden wonderland, weaving flowers into breathtaking bouquets. As the wedding day approached, Shelby and Payton reflected on their journey as a couple. They eagerly anticipated sharing their love and found solace knowing that each detail had been meticulously planned for their most special day.

The Retreat

For their honeymoon, the newlyweds traveled to central and southern Italy. They spent three days in Rome and seven days along the Amalfi Coast. With gorgeous views, amazing food, and each other’s company, they had a wonderful time. The couple enjoyed walking around the town, sailing boats, or relaxing on the beach. The honeymoon was one of Shelby and Payton’s most amazing experiences; they are already planning a trip to return.
