It's a good thing that Joey would stop by his parents' restaurant during the summer to help out in the kitchen. It was there that he met Amanda, who was a waitress at the restaurant and the two shared a definite attraction for one another. Despite the encouragement from family members and the constant flirtations, it wasn't until two years later that Amanda and Joey shared their first date, but it was at that moment that Amanda knew Joey was "the one."


We love bright, bold, and unique color palettes and encourage our readers to embrace vibrant colors no matter what time of year they're holding their wedding. This wedding incorporated a lot of colors that you wouldn't think go together, when in actuality, they all blend to create a vividly bright and colorful scene. Taking a chance with bold colors often pays off - your celebration will instantly have a great energetic vibe - but make sure you speak to your floral designer or even coordinator before choosing colors that are totally out there.
