“We ac­tu­ally met when we were 16 and have al­ways been re­ally close friends. But I think we’ve al­ways had an eye on each other,” says Laura Joukhadar of her now hus­band, Joey. Af­ter a to­tal sur­prise pro­posal—where Joey popped the ques­tion in French (she’s a French teacher) and es­corted Laura, via limo, to a party with all her loved ones—it’s no sur­prise the wed­ding was a high-fash­ion fairy­tale. In­spired by a re­cent trip to Europe and a keen eye for the run­way, Laura en­listed Golden Dog Pro­duc­tions to help cre­ate a look that Dolce and Gab­bana would ap­prove of. “I wanted the theme co­he­sive and Tere­sita nailed it. I just wanted it to be unique to us,” says Laura. “I wanted you to look at it and say that’s so Laura and Joey.” Blue Ital­ian tiling, royal reds and golds, a vin­tagein­spired photo booth, a 360° pro­jec­tion of the Palace of Ver­sailles and a run­way that led guests to the dance floor worked to­gether to cre­ate a unique, mag­i­cal, larger than life at­mos­phere—but it’s the lit­tle mo­ments that Laura re­mem­bers the most. “When I was walk­ing down the aisle, my dad was mak­ing sure we walked nice and slow to keep me calm— and I couldn’t stop laugh­ing,” she says. “I was just gig­gling the whole time look­ing at Joey. And he was blush­ing.”
