"I believe in real moments and true love. The kind of love that reminds you that joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I also believe this love deserves to be celebrated in a the most special way we know how: together."

I was born and raised in heart of the Shenandoah Valley and after meeting my fiancé Dillon, we settled right outside of Charlottesville, VA. Since then, we've slowly discovered our favorites; The Farmer's Market and Monsoon Siam for Thai.
My love for weddings has brought me everywhere from the beaches of Rhode Island to the streets of Paris. But regardless of where I travel, the Virginia heat and sticky summers will always be my home.

"Elise was the best decision I made for my wedding. From the initial conversation I had with her, I knew she was the one."
WORD ON THE STREET
Like all modern day love stories, we met on a dating app. In September 2021 we tied the knot with 60 of our closest friends & family at the Mayhurst Estate in Orange, VA.
It was the best day of our lives.
My love affair with lattes began once a Starbucks came to my hometown and was heightened after my first trip to Europe. Ever since then, there isn't a coffee shop I won't try on my search for the best vanilla latte.
With half my family still living in The Netherlands and Germany, I frequent Europe often. There is nothing quite like their lifestyle, cuisine and wine.
Next stop: Italy & Greece!
