Elissa & Tim ...A Wedding at The Palms

May/early June was full of destination couples from NY. Elissa and Tim were one of them.
When I first met Elissa I knew she was going to be lots of fun. She is just a genuinely sweet and good hearted person that you just can't help but love to be around and she's lots of fun! I didn't get to meet Tim until the day of the wedding but it was apparent from about the first 30 seconds why these 2 are so perfect for each other.
I think if there is something I will always remember about their wedding day is how much I laughed. Elissa, Tim and their bridal party made for a great time!

The day looked like it might be a little rainy but Elissa was not letting that get her down. She was actually jumping up and down right before I sent her down the the aisle at her ceremony at the lovely Ancient Spanish Monastery! Elissa was the picture perfect bride and totally rocked her gorgeous Alvina Valenta gown.

After the ceremony guests were shuttled back over to The Palms for the reception.

A cocktail hour awaiting them out on the veranda. The beautiful reception table was set up with trays of sand and the escort cards attached to starfish. Also on the table was a memorial candle custom made by me to remember the bride's father who was there in spirit. The table looked beautiful. Definitely one of my favorites.

On the way in to the ballroom guests got distracted by the very cool photo booth provided by Peek-A-Booth. The photo booth came with all kinds of hilarious hats, glasses etc. Guests loved it and there was a line waiting to get in there all night!

As for the the reception itself, the normally all white beach-house inspired ballroom was all lit up in a soft pink up lighting and the dancefloor with the couples monogram provided by Ubi's Music and Lighting. Top This provided the Tiffany Blue linens and Mahogany Chiavari Chairs. Natinel Designs provided the beautiful arrangements that decorated each table.

Everything looked beautiful.

Elissa & Tim, we had such a great time at your wedding and we know you did too! Lol I hope the after party was just as fun and that you are having an AMAZING time in Thailand on your honeymoon. I cannot wait to see pictures.
We both hope that each day only gets better and better for the two of you I am sure that your lives together will be filled with lots of love and lots of laughs!

Beautiful! I've always wanted to see photos of a wedding there. That outdoor area is so nice for a ceremony.
