Lights, camera, action! We are star struck from our recent mini interview with LIUNA bride Rose and groom Nicholas. We recently caught up with Rose, who filled us in on her big screen proposal, gave us the behind the scenes details of her Gatsby Miami themed wedding, and why she recommends LIUNA Station to family and friends for any upcoming special event!
LS: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your husband?
RM: Nicholas and I are a fun loving, down to earth couple that loves to go on adventures! We are the happiest when we are surrounded by our family and friends.
LS: How did Nicholas pop the question?
RM: My husband made our proposal very special. He secretly worked behind the scenes and made a short film which he inserted into the previews of a current movie. We went to the movie theatre like any normal Saturday. Nicholas made sure that we got to the movies really early so we could get good seats. As we waited for the previews to start he was all nervous and jittery. We patiently waited. Then all of sudden he was on the big screen, I can’t even remember what was said in the video, but there was my leading man down on one knee!
LS: There are so many wedding and event venues out there – what made LIUNA Station stand out among the rest?
RM: Out of all the venues we researched LIUNA made us feel that they were going to take care of all of our needs. They answered all of our questions and calmed all of our concerns. Also LIUNA is absolutely beautiful and fit our theme Gatsby Miami nights perfectly!
LS: Tell us about your experience working with your suppliers/vendors?
RM: All of my vendors were a dream to work with. Each and every vendor took the time to listen to our thoughts and concerns. They ensured we worked as a team to make the day perfect. My wedding planner Vivian was simply amazing. She ensured all my ideas came to life in the most amazing way. She coordinated the entire day!
LS: Describe the meal that was served on your wedding day?
RM: We had the premium antipasto bar to start. The pasta was fazzolletti served in a Genovese sauce, entree was a fillet mignon served with a jumbo prawn, wild mushroom risotto and grilled veggies. Our dessert was a double chocolate caramel cheesecake. Everything was so delicious, I wouldn’t have changed any of the details of the menu! Nicholas drink was a Manhattan and mine was a Aperol Spritz.
LS: Describe the quality of service you received at LIUNA Station?
RM: Honestly, everything on the big day was perfect! All LIUNA staff members made sure everything was executed without a hitch.
LS: Looking back, what would you say is your favourite memory from your special day?
RM: Every time Nicholas and I think back to our wedding day, we always talk about the first time we saw each other at the church. It was one of the most emotional part of our day. We were celebrating our love for one another in front of all our family and friends.
LS: Would you recommend LIUNA Station to a friend for his or her next event? If so, why?
RM: Absolutely! LIUNA worked with my husband and I to make our day so special. The staff ensured all the details were perfect.
