Elizabeth Skula + Josh Skula | Nov 14, 2017
Elizabeth and Josh met back in 2015 through a mutual friend. The two hit it off and Josh invited Elizabeth out to lunch and a pool date and they never stopped hanging out after that! They knew they were meant to be and just a short year later, Josh started making engagement plans! Josh planned a big proposal surprise to take place at Carolina Beach but, unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans and Hurricane Matthew caused the beach to be evacuated (including him and his parents who were already there for the surprise!). They drove back to Raleigh and his parents called Elizabeth and invited her to dinner at Sullivan’s Steakhouse. Thinking Josh had to work the whole night, she agreed but when she walked into the restaurant she was shocked to see a giant heart made of rose petals, candles, and Josh down on one knee! So surprised but oh so happy, she said yes and the two spent the night celebrating with family and friends!
Elizabeth and Josh’s wedding day took place at the beautiful Carrollock Farms and was an absolute dream come true. They took a traditional approach and exchanged letters but not looks prior to the ceremony and it was just the sweetest moment! They chose a style and theme of country meets timeless Hollywood glamour and everything from the venue to the blush and navy color scheme and décor radiated their vision. The rustic décor and antique farm equipment was complimented by gorgeous candlelight and florals that oozed romance and glamour. Elizabeth’s form fitting gown was stunning and her hairstyle was the perfect mix of old Hollywood glam and modern style. The day was filled with perfect moments and two of Elizabeth’s favorites of the day were seeing Josh for the first time as she came down the aisle and her and her dad’s father-daughter dance (they spent months taking dance lessons!). The entire day was so much fun and continued into the evening as the dance floor was hopping all night and a fabulous time was truly had by all!
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Skula!
