Zola Townhouse: Meet Our LA Host, Parachute Founder + CEO Ariel Kaye

Starting January 24 thru February 4, our West Coast friends can get the full Zola experience at the new Zola Townhouse popping up in The Parachute Hotel in Venice. If you’re in LA, stop by or make an appointment to shop hundreds of registry items and get inspired to build your newlywed home. Or just hang. You can always do that, too. Because, #humblebrag, the place is oh-so-cozy and we’re so happy with how it turned out. And a lot of that is due to our host and city guide, Ariel Kaye, Founder and CEO of Parachute. We chatted with the LA native about her recent engagement(!), her brand, bedding tips for couples, and The Parachute Hotel’s neighborhood. ZOLA: Congrats on your engagement! Tell us how it went down. And we have to know… anything you or your husband-to-be are excited to register for? AK: Thank you so much! My fiancé proposed on Christmas while we were walking our puppy by the beach in Santa Monica—just a few blocks away from where we grew up and used to hang out …

#ZolaCouple: Meet Cortney + Maurice

Meet our latest #ZolaCouple, Cortney and Maurice. These two gorgeous people met in college, and literally jumped over hurdles to get together. They fell in love, and the rest is history. Read for yourselves! How did you meet? We ran on the same track team in college and had the same circle of friends. Both being hurdlers, we spent lots of time training together day in and day out – where we got to know one another first as friends and eventually began to develop a relationship. How did he propose? He didn’t. I didn’t. Marriage was something that neither of us had ever dreamt about, but we knew we wanted to spend our lives together. We discussed the idea of eloping and realized it was an option that excited us the most! What was the first thing you did after you got engaged? Had an IPA at our favorite neighborhood brewery. Tell us about your wedding & the theme! We decided to have a handful of our family come along with us to Washington’s beautiful San Juan Islands. …
