Elise and Paul’s laid-back, high-style wedding
I am so excited to finally share the wonderful wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Paul and Elise. It was such a special, personal day and they both put so much thought and personality in to every detail — the whole day was just SO Elise and Paul. From reading Elise’s blog, I know how much hard work she put into planning their wedding, but the whole day just seemed so effortless. Geoff and I both felt special to be the ones capturing it. We began the day taking some photos of Elise and Paul getting ready at the Citizen hotel, the location of their reception.
After the ceremony we all went back to the Citizen Hotel for some portraits of the newlyweds. We took a few out front and then rode up to their honeymoon suite for some pictures on the balcony overlooking the Sacramento skyline.
Reception time! Check out all of Elise and Paul’s great details. My favorites are the cute menu cards (which Elise designed herself to match her wedding invitations) and the “e&p” cocktail napkins. So cute and colorful!
Elise’s aunts planned this awesome game where Paul and Elise had to answer questions like, “Who does most of the cleaning?”, and “Who is the better cook?” It was the first time I’d seen that at a wedding and it was soooo cute. They even got all but one question right!
CONGRATULATIONS Elise and Paul! We feel so honored to have been a part of your special day! Everything came together so beautifully. I know you two will have many, many years of happiness together. You two rock! Oh and readers, be sure to check out Elise’s blog to get the bride-and-groom side of the wedding day story!
