    Brielle and Joshua Gregoli

    October 6, 2023 in Macungie, Pennsylvania


    Sometimes chance encounters turn into the most beautiful love stories. For Brielle and Joshua Gregoli, their journey from acquaintances to soulmates began amidst the joyful celebration of their childhood best friends’ wedding in 2019.

    My Best Friends’ Wedding

    As fate would have it, Brielle and Josh found themselves standing side by side as bridesmaid and groomsman, respectively, at the enchanting wedding. Little did they know, the sparks ignited that night would eventually blaze into a lifelong love. Initially, their connection remained dormant, hidden beneath the euphoria of their friends’ wedding festivities.

    It wasn’t until the weeks that followed, when thoughts of each other refused to fade, that they realized the depth of their chemistry. Despite residing miles apart, with Brielle in Pennsylvania and Josh in North Carolina, they couldn’t shake the magnetic pull drawing them closer.

    “A celebration that epitomized their boho-chic style and love for life’s simple pleasures.”

    Their burgeoning romance took flight as they embarked on a journey of frequent trips to bridge the distance between them. Conversations flourished, laughter echoed, and bonds strengthened with each passing visit. It was clear that destiny was orchestrating their union.

    The Next Chapter

    In 2021, a pivotal moment arrived when Josh’s career path led him back to his roots in New Jersey. With geographic barriers now crumbling, they began earnest discussions about their shared future. The pieces of their lives were slowly falling into place, paving the way for the next chapter of their love story.

    The addition of Java, their beloved dog, in April 2022, symbolized the warmth and joy permeating their evolving relationship. Shortly thereafter, they took the leap of purchasing a home together, solidifying their commitment to building a life intertwined with love and shared dreams.

    Amidst the tranquil beauty of Cedar Lakes Estate in Port Jervis, NY, surrounded by cherished family and lifelong friends, Josh seized the perfect moment to ask Brielle the question that would change their lives forever. With tears of joy and hearts overflowing, they embarked on the journey of engagement, brimming with anticipation for the adventures that lay ahead.

    A Boho-Chic Wedding at Domaine Pterion Vineyard and Winery

    Their wedding planning process was a whirlwind of excitement, infused with the essence of their personalities and shared vision. In just six short months, they meticulously crafted a celebration that epitomized their boho-chic style and love for life’s simple pleasures.

    The idyllic Domaine Pterion Vineyard and Winery in Macungie, PA provided the picturesque backdrop for their magical day. Surrounded by lush vineyards and embraced by the support of their loved ones, Brielle and Josh exchanged vows of eternal devotion, sealing their love with promises whispered amidst the rustle of perfectly crisp and colored autumn leaves.

    Their wedding day unfolded like a dream, filled with cherished moments and unforgettable highlights. From the heartfelt first look to the tender embrace of Brielle walking down the aisle with her father, each moment was etched in the tapestry of their memories.

    As they stood beneath the fall golden-hour sky, a gentle breeze overcame their guests, lasting only as long as their pastor reading the words of John 15:1-6, “The Vine and the Branches.” Guests described this experience as Brielle’s and Josh’s Heavenly angels visiting them during their ceremony.

    Jordan Kahn Orchestra ignited the dance floor with infectious energy and unbridled joy. The eclectic array of food trucks, serving up delectable delights such as sushi, sliders, pizza, tacos, Greek food, pierogies, and finishing the night with freshly filled cannoli and gelato.

    A humorous anecdote unfolded that is still laughed about to this day. Brielle and her mother’s meticulous preparations for 750 custom “Brielle and Joshua” food truck papers that were rush-ordered the week prior to the wedding – due to a mishap with the first printer – never made it out to the food trucks. Despite the mishap, the day unfolded seamlessly – a testament to the resilience of love and power of laughter.

    As the evening ended, Brielle and Josh bid farewell to their loved ones, embarking on a journey of discovery and adventure. They planned their honeymoon for March in the sun-kissed shores of Keyonna Beach Resort in Antigua. It was a blissful retreat punctuated by moments of serenity and shared laughter.

    Their favorite memory remains the leisurely catamaran excursion, where they savored the taste of freshly grilled lobster and basked in the warmth of the sun and each other’s embrace. In those tranquil moments, amidst the azure expanse of the ocean, they found solace and contentment, knowing their love was growing stronger by the day.

    For Brielle and Josh, their love story is a testament to the power of serendipity and beauty of finding your soulmate amidst life’s unexpected twists and turns. As they embark on the journey of marriage, hand in hand and heart in heart, they carry with them the promise of a lifetime filled with love, laughter, and endless coffee dates (not complete without their dog, Java, of course)!
