GARDEN OF LOVE
KAROLINE STAROSTIK & TORRE FITZ
“My Prince Charming literally rang my doorbell,” explains Karoline Starostik of the moment she first met Torre Fitz while he was working as a fitness and nutrition coach. The pair remained just friends for eight months before their first date, and following that unforgettable evening, their relationship quickly escalated. One month later while visiting Karoline’s family in Brazil for Christmas, Torre knelt down in her mother’s kitchen and proposed in front of her family. Then one year later, he presented her with a sparkling oval-shaped diamond engagement ring for a second proposal at their home before flying to London and Paris to celebrate with friends.
With just four months to plan a sophisticated Beverly Hills wedding, the couple enlisted the help of Tessa Brand of Tessa Lyn Events to coordinate the details of the special day. Their choice of venue was simple: a luxury hotel just five minutes from where they reside, as it was their second home while remodeling their own. “We never even considered getting married somewhere else,” admits Karoline.
