I first met with MICHELLE PEREZ and ALEXIS CASCIATO when i planned the groom's sister's wedding (MELISSA CASCIATO-ROYBAL and MATTHEW ROYBAL) the year prior. Having included their families to my circle of friends, the tradition continued with another family event ... their Wedding! And what a stunning and fun Wedding it was.
