Elissa & Jose's Wedding

One of my very best friends, Elissa, got married on Sunday and it was an absolute fairytale wedding. Every last detail was stunning and I was so honored to stand by Elissa's side as her Matron of Honor. She and Jose have been dating for nine years, so it was amazing to see this dream day come to life for the both of them.
The bridesmaids got ready in the beautiful presidential suite at The Woodlands Resort. Hair and make-up team were awesome!

I don't have any pictures from the ceremony, and all of these are iPhone pictures. They don't begin to do justice to the beauty that was this reception. Just breath-taking.

Bear had fun with the flower girls! #ladiesman

Our beautiful Brittney Granger was supposed to be Elissa's maid of honor, so there were lots of special touches throughout the day in memory of our Beanie. Loved that Elissa carried Brittney with her in her bouquet.

Flip book favors were pretty much the coolest thing ever.
To Elissa and Jose,
Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness. I've never known two people any more in love than the two of you. God clearly made you for each other, and we are so very blessed to have you as our dear friends and what we consider family. Love you, Carmonas! Have a blast in Cali!

  4. Such a gorgeous wedding! Love the back of the bride's dress - stunning! You have such a great group of girl friends, and it was so sweet to add all of the special touches to remember y'all's dear friend.

  5. WOW. That was a beautiful wedding.

  6. The lace detailing on Elissa's dress is stunning. I love the idea of sparklers instead of rice - less clean-up and more eye-catching! And of course, carrying Brittney's memory in the bouquet was a heartbreakingly beautiful touch. This was picture perfect - even with an iPhone ;) Thanks for sharing!


Thank you for leaving some love!
