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.
