Adriana and Mateusz created a day filled to the brim with the things they love: the city, adventure, dance, music, and so. much. good. food. I want to write something that does this day justice, but still – months after shooting this, I’m at a loss for words. These two are so full of life that being around them inspires you to see the world in a better light, too. To give you an idea of how unique and full of spirit they are, I want to share a little BTS of their wedding day with you. Adriana and Mateusz went to the park every single day months before their wedding to practice the choreography of the La La Land dance. This was their first dance which you will see part of their reception! It was so spectacular, and so them! Not only that, but they planned every aspect and detail of the day themselves, even down to creating their very own menus topped with dried lavender. I’m grateful to call these two friends and to have created this story, together, with them.
