There is nothing like the sound of the spring season. Birds are chirping, kids are playing and neighbors are visiting as they soak up the warmth of the sunshine. Nothing compares, however, to the sound of true love; the sound of a man promising his life to his perfect match in front of friends and family. As you well know, we love the spring season for a number of reasons, but perhaps the most wonderful is its signaling of the start of wedding season. To kick things off for us, we'd like to share with you the story of two sweet lovebirds who can't wait to recite their own sweet vows to each other in just a few more weeks.

Liza and Stephen both grew up in Memphis, but it was the chance meeting during their days at Auburn University that sealed their fate. The pair shared a tennis class during their college days and Stephen generously drove Liza back to her dorm after the tennis class so that she didn't have to walk. What a gentleman! They quickly formed a strong bond through friendship, and their relationship later formed a bond that won't be broken. 

The lovely couple will be married at Collierville United Methodist Church on April 21st, with a reception to follow at Spring Creek Ranch. The ceremony will be simple and classic, in line with the taste of the bride and groom. They are looking forward to committing to each other in front of all of their friends and family, and can't wait to hear the sweet sound of their best friends' voice pledging their love for years to come. Congrats, Liza and Stephen, and thank you for letting us share your special moments with you!

A Bella Vita Registry- In Liza's Words

BV: Why did you choose Bella Vita for your registry over other boutiques?

LL: We LOVE Bella Vita! It's one of my favorite boutiques in Memphis. I literally go there for all occasions-- wedding gifts, birthday gifts, etc. so I thought why not register there, too! 

BV: Was the selection at Bella Vita what you were expecting? Do you feel satisfied with the dinnerware and home decor options?

LL: Totally, and the service has been great. We just walked in the store to register (I forgot to make an appointment) and Brittany was there to help. Every time I go into the store it is a good experience.

BV: Have any of your wedding guests commented on Bella Vita?

LL: At every shower I have received something from Bella Vita, and at every shower someone says "I need to go there. I didn't know they had such great stuff!" Those that have been there previously can't say enough good things.

BV: What aspect of married life are you most looking forward to?

LL: I'd say that I'm most excited about living together...and cooking together! It's so hard to plan meals when we're living alone, so we're definitely going to take advantage of being able to cook together.
