We met online and started dating in 2013. I grew up in Florida and always wanted to get married in the Sunshine State. The idea was to escape the cold of New York City while bringing together our friends and family for a fabulous destination wedding weekend. I instantly fell in love with the Boca Resort since its decidedly Mediterranean setting provided the perfect backdrop for the Italian-style wedding I wanted. As soon as I saw the venue's Courtyard and stepped into the stunning Cathedral Ballroom, I knew my décor vision would become reality.
What did it mean to you that Noel planned your wedding?
Noel ... I call her my fairy g-d mother. She's unlike anyone I've had the pleasure to work within our industry. We initially met Noel when she planned my sister's wedding; Noel instantly became part of our family. My mom and Noel spent days together planning every last detail of my wedding. They became each others’ therapists and developed a special relationship you just don't typically see between a wedding planner and her clients. Noel's creativity is beyond anything I've seen. Importantly, she's not just a wedding planner—she is an artist.
I have a crazy mind and can be all over the place with my ideas that seem ridiculous and she is the only one I trusted to take she is the only one I trusted to take the reigns and make my dreams an actual reality. She is a friend, she is honest, she is to the point, she makes things happen and she is the hardest working person I have ever worked with. Having her part of this experience was an honor for me and my family -- she did all of this while taking care of her mother and for that, I literally have no way to ever thank her.
