SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 // Anna Liisa + Elliott
For Anna Liisa Joki and Elliott Moss, it was a tale as old as timing — with a twist! The Utah couple both swiped right as they met on Tinder — in Hawaii.“We had a lot in common and talked for hours getting to know each other. Elliott says it was love at first sight.” After their perfect first date in Waikiki, the perfect proposal came exactly one year later in Utah. Elliott reenacted their first date — right down to the Hawaiian setting. They drove from Provo to Saltair, which led Anna Liisa up a huge rock overlooking the water. There was a blanket set up with a picnic basket that had pineapple and chocolate covered macadamia nuts inside. Then Elliott slowly pulled out the ring and got down on one knee. The signature detail of their wedding was classic and traditional style. The colors were forest green with hints of light pink and crème. Once the wedding day arrived, it was pure bliss. “I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful day and a more wonderful husband,” Anna Liisa says.
