Talk about an Enchanting Gorgeous Wedding Affair! Seriously, this was one to go down in my history books. Not just because I had the opportunity to work with two AMAZING people, but also because it was one of those beautiful, dreamy days in August when couples only hope and wish for a perfect wedding. And this was definitely it!
Chris and Elisa sure made their dream of two becoming one come true in an endearing and whimsical spectacle at the beautiful Rancho Las Lomas. The Teatro courtyard was the perfect place for them to unite their families under a stunning Chuppah made by the ever amazing Art with Nature Design team. Their Ketubah was truly a work of art as well and made for a beautiful piece for guests to admire.
After one of the most romantic, intimate wedding ceremonies I have ever witnessed, guests wined and dined on the fabulous faire by 24 Carrots. After cocktails, guests were invited into the transformed Teatro for dinner and dancing. Their reception atmosphere was impeccable and frankly second to none. The tables were named after special places that Chris and Elisa visited together during their courtship. As much as technology is at our fingertips now days, they were matched up with a QR code. If you scanned the code into your phone, it would give you more information about that very place. That was definitely a fun experience for the guests!
A few other unique and creative touches to the day were the guest book, which was a fingerprint tree. Guests were asked to stamp their fingerprint along the branches like a leaf and sign their name. It is a great idea because it then doubles as a new piece of art for the couple’s new home.
Their beautiful cakes were made by the Great Dane Bakery, and their wedding cake shined with brilliance, and tasted just as sweet. You couldn’t miss Chris’ Groom’s Cake that was sitting right next to it, a Cubs baseball hat for Chris, you’d think he was a baseball fan or something!
