Eliseian feat

"My husband Ian and I currently live in the Bay Area in California,” began today’s featured bride, Elise. "We wanted to get married locally, since this is where we met and built our lives together. We both knew we wanted an outdoor wedding, somewhere naturally beautiful, so we could keep things simple, classic, and elegant.

"We decided to get married at a beautiful private estate an hour east of wine country. When we first visited the venue, we both knew that was it. I'll never forget all of the special moments of that day — getting ready with our best friends, crying together out of happiness after our first look, hearing each other's vows, dancing under market lights on the patio.

"We infused a few Hawaii wedding traditions as well that were important to me. One of which was folding a thousand cranes for good luck. We displayed them as a photo background for our guests. I also had one of my bridesmaids and my dad do a Banzai toast. And although not necessarily a tradition, I did a hula dance for my husband, which ended with us inviting everyone onto the dance floor to party the night away!”

Infusing even more romance into the bridal ensemble is our Madison James MJ455 gown, which is perfect for an elegant destination wedding like Elise + Ian’s! Many thanks to Elise and Kreate Photography for submitting such an incredible gallery this Wedding Wednesday.
