Here Comes Sunni & Lance, Part 1

When planning their wedding, Sunni and Lance made sure that not one detail was missed.  The amazing couple were determined to make their wedding day very memorable, adding personal touches along the way. Their guests were suprised and delighted with the continuous wow factors throughout the night. Talented photographer Steve Canning was there to capture every moment.
Thank you Steve for the magnificent photos! 

Custom made wedding dress and cute shoe details.

A little special attention for the bride from her gorgeous bridesmaids. Their dresses were from the sale rack at White House Black Market for something like $30! By adding adorable polka dot shoes and great necklaces, the look comes off as custom and expensive. Our clients are given a complimentary consultation with a fashion stylist just for this reason.
Paper parasols come in 25 colors and are available for sale in our design studio.

My favorite summer tuxedo, the white dinner jacket with black pants.
So inexpensive and so cute to add a pop of color in the groomsmen's socks.

These wedding signs are from Etsy and part of the inventory at Elizabeth Bailey Weddings. All of our clients are free to use any of our amazing stockpile of props and details for their weddings.

Baby's breath played a major role in the decor of this wedding both for it's simplicity and it's color.

Shouting "Here comes the bride!" the little ring bearer announced the bride's arrival. The horse and carriage brought her and her dad to the ceremony site with "Here Comes the Sun" playing in the background. When the bride got out of the carriage, the trumpets played fanfare to further dramatize the entrance. The banners hanging from the trumpets were of a custom "couple's crest" made by a family friend and we had them sewn here by our in house seamstress Barbara DeRose.
This beautiful chuppah top will long be cherished. Within each wedding invitation, guests received a square of fabric and were asked to decorate the piece and return it with their response card. As the fabric squares were received, they were carefully coordinated and beautifully sewn into a quilt by seamstress Barbara DeRose. Later at the reception, the quilt was hung in a prominent space in the Ballroom so that all guests could get a close-up view of the drawings and messages to the bride and groom. Of course now they have it as a keepsake in their home. The extraordinary chuppah was made by Leslie at Perkins Productions.
The extra WOW Factors:
Personalized Details: Cute shoes and Colorful Paper Parasols
Most Memorable Moment: The officiants were a rabbi and a minister and together they created a beautiful ceremony.
Take Away Tip (to use at your wedding): A custom "couples" family crest
Easy DIY Enhancement: Custom made chuppah top.
Details that cannot be missed: Trumpets announcing the bride's arrival.
