John and Nikala met when they were young at a Christmas party that was being held at Citrolas Italian Restaurant, which is owned by John’s family (and is also who catered their wedding). Nikala had the biggest crush on John! They are each other’s biggest supporter and haven’t been apart since! What Nikala thought was “dating anniversary” photos, turned into a surprise engagement on the Colorado National Monument in February 2021. As they dove into wedding planning, they wanted a venue that was unique. One visit to Storm King Mountain Ranch in Montrose, CO and they knew it was the one. It was the perfect setting for their black tie, modern boho wedding. With the help of Chelsea Cholas Wedding Planning, their vision was brought to life. Hannah with the Flower Shoppe designed beautiful florals with pops of blush that complimented the black and white color palette. Captured by SarahHall Photography, John and Nikala said they will forever be able to reminisce on their special day.
