Real Wedding Wednesday: Allison & Aaron

By Suzi Battaile

Third time was charming for this micro-wedding at an intimate Spanish style casita.

Allison & Aaron found their venue when COVID caused them to go a different direction. Like many couples over the past year they rolled with it and came up with a plan B. But then again they had last minute cancellations due to COVID in February and had to try again. With a wedding date of April 10th they needed to find another venue and FAST. Allison searched airbnb and found a very cute Spanish casita named Villa Francesca. She reached out to see if the owner would allow a wedding. Luck would have it that they were just starting out trying to market the home as a wedding venue, but due to COVID had to pumped the breaks on promoting the space.

Having downsized from 100 people Allison wanted to make their now 26 person wedding feel extra special, so they decided to splurge on the details and believes it was so worth it. With the help of her incredible wedding planner they were able to get married and created the most beautiful space. People are still telling them how beautiful their wedding was and how much fun they had.
