Gabrielle and Wesley met as freshman at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The pair lived on the same floor in the same dorm, shared the same friends and even shared a class or two. “I knew he would be someone special in my life the moment I met him, though we didn’t date until years later,” says Gabrielle. 

The beautiful couple exchanged “I do’s” on June 14, 2014 at Greenacres Arts Center in front of family and friends. The couple’s wedding day was truly magical from the first look to the ceremony and reception. Charming floral arrangements in various shades of pink and white complimented the lavish, vintage, secret garden feel. 

“We loved spending time with family, friends, and each other and were so grateful and humbled by the outpouring of love and support given throughout the evening! Our wedding would not have been the same without those who made it possible, especially Viva Bella Events,” says Gabrielle. “We were able to find comfort in knowing that no detail would be overlooked, which allowed us to actually enjoy such a special time in our lives. We couldn’t have done it without Viva Bella!”
