Elissa + Doug were married on a fabulous Saturday in May. While “Marry You” by the Glee Cast played in the background, Elissa got ready with her best friends and close family in the bridal suite. Meanwhile, Doug was preparing to see his bride for the first time that day just down the hall. When they first laid eyes on each other, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. They opened their wedding card from President Obama (that’s right – if you send an invitation to the White House, you receive a personalized wedding card from the big man himself!) and headed out for some awesome photos at White River State Park.
When it came time for the vows, we headed to the Central Library where everyone had been hard at work putting together the final details for Elissa + Doug’s big day! Elissa planned everything herself – down to the place cards, which were – get this – library cards!! The centerpieces were gorgeously-jeweled lamp shades that Elissa created herself. Seriously, she’s one talented lady.
The highlight of the night was Jedi Mind Trip – an awesome band from Michigan – that played until the library shut them down (silly noise ordinances!). And let me tell you – they ROCKED it out. I would highly recommend them for your wedding if you’re still looking for entertainment!
