It was on a holiday to Las Olas in Florida, while they were in an Italian restaurant, that Nafis planned to propose to Joelle on their first vacation together.
“The whole restaurant was cheering and sending over drinks and champagne!” said Joelle.
The celebrations continued when the couple decided to wed in the Bahamas at The Atlantis, Paradise Island. Joelle stunned in a gorgeous Galia Lahav dress and was surprised with “how gorgeous my flowers turned out!”
The seven-day affair with family and friends was all about a fun party and enjoying the beach. Think relaxed elegance, fashionable guests and classic black and white decor against dashes of greenery.
“While it was a destination wedding in a warm environment, it felt upscale and dressy. The funniest part was the dancing!”
