At first, their relationship was long distance with Shayan living in Orlando where he had settled after graduating from law school, and Erika living and working in Washington, D.C. […]

We love this resort because not only it offers amazing accommodations and amenities for the guests and it’s just about 15 minutes away from the airport, but also because it gives […]

Rachel and Chad’s garden-inspired wedding was nothing less than beautiful. The beauty of Murray Hill Estate complimented by the colorful floral compositions of Holly Chapple made this wedding an absolute knockout. On top of it all, the gorgeous invitation suite (designed by the bride herself) was such a lovely personal touch! We are so fortunate to have been a part of this […]
