Growing up in Lexington, Boston, and Paris, Elaine found herself wanting to travel from her current home in Arizona to celebrate her big day in the tradition of Southern Hospitality.
Our design direction was given: find a horse farm and incorporate a little bit of everything from Jeff and Elaine’s personalities. Black and white striped elements were a must in addition to a croquembouche to remind them of Paris where they were engaged, with lemons thrown in, bright yellow and representative of the vibrant colors of Arizona.
Special details marked the day. Elaine’s mother sewed a piece of her father’s tie into her dress, photos of all who could not be in attendance were proudly on display and of course, the Texas Two Step – a nod to Jeff’s home state.
