The venue was beautifully decorated with flower arrangements that included different white flowers like roses, hydrangeas, ranunculus among others.

The couple donated the collection of flowers to the Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Queen. The event was planned with the help of Jove Meyer.

The wedding cake was a six feet tall, eleven tiered, simple yet elegant creation by the bakery Nine Cakes. The wedding was neutral- themed with light pink, pale blue and gray hues.

The pair is the first-ever same-sex couple on The Knot’s Dream Wedding list. Their wedding was an elegant affair.

Elena and Amanda Engagement

Talking about their engagement, the duo both got to purpose each other one after another. The first one to pop the question was Amanda at a dog beach on Lake Michigan. Amanda recalled in an interview.

"Yes, we had talked about getting engaged and our future, but she had no idea I was going to ask her that day in Chicago. She was so surprised in fact that she thought it was a joke!" 

After a few weeks of the surprise, Elena surprised Amanda with her own proposal. She dressed up one of their dogs, Rasta in a wedding dress and asked Amanda to marry her to which she, of course, said yes.
