What started as a casual party with mutual friends turned into an all-night conversation on the beach and, over time, blossomed into Tiffany and Stephen’s love story. Having bonded over a thirst for adventure, it’s only fitting that Stephen popped the question while exploring Zion National Park — and, boy, what an adventure it was! A flash flood warning mid-hike had them running back to the car… and away from The Narrows, the picturesque spot where he planned to propose. But that didn’t spoil Stephen’s plans — he quickly found another hike where he could finally (and safely) get down on one knee, surprising Tiffany with the ring he’d kept tucked in a pair of socks the whole trip.

Tiffany and Stephen wanted a celebration reflective of their relationship, and what better way to capture their love story than with a new adventure? A Lake Como elopement certainly fits the bill! After getting ready, the couple boarded a private taxi boat to the stunning Villa Balbianello, where they officially tied the knot. Captured with custom art on their vow books, the castle-esque property overlooks Lake Como with Italy’s mountains in the distance — the perfect setting for Tiffany and Stephen’s fairytale elopement. Spring weather meant the grounds were in full bloom, with pastel wisteria and bold poppies adding bursts of color amidst the ivy-covered walls. As newly-minted Mr. and Mrs., the newlyweds closed out their celebration with a 3-hour boat tour of the famed Lake Como.
