…from the first email I knew that these two were kindred spirits. Elise used as many exclamation points as I did, and Phil followed up with his own “can’t wait to work with you email”. From there, a true friendship blossomed. I CAN NOT express how much I adore these two. Both of them care so much for the people around them and are so selfless in their thoughts and actions. The world is a better place with them in it.
Now it was all just a bonus that they had impecible style and a vision that made my heart skip a beat. From Elise’s gold Theia gown to Phil’s custom made shoes, to their outdoor ceremony set off by the juxtaposition of industrial lights and the soft landscape. Le sigh. Le swoon.
Tina Barrera, the florist, really tuned into Elise’s vision with the light bulbs, which were turned into vases, and hand painted the succulents to accent the gold. Aries Rental custom made the antique light ceremony backdrop.
Elise walked down the aisle to Justin Timberlake’s Mirrors. It was AWESOME!! …and the Events Luxe gals made everything go soooo smoothly!! Elise’s sister, Lindsay recruited wedding guests to make a video and surprise them at the reception. Check out the end of the post for the link to the video…It’s hilarious!!
