Elaine’s strapless mermaid dress with accented waistline fit her like a glove. It looked modern with a statement necklace and bright red lips. Who doesn’t love the way a beautiful white wedding gown looks paired with a handsome groom in a classic black tuxedo? A beautiful bouquet pale purple roses and eggplant colored calla lilies accented with a thick white ribbon continued the modern and elegant theme.

Guests gathered under a tent on a rooftop which lit up at night while dinner and dancing took place. The decor included comfortable white couches and chairs, dotted with purple pillows to stay on theme, and classic table settings featured crystal glasses and simple hydrangea bouquets in vases.

Dessert, red velvet cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting, had a fun twist with carved wooden figures of the bride and groom.

Franklin P. Jones said it best when he said “Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” We wish Elaine and Gil a lifetime of happiness.
