Never have we had a more fun loving group than this Miami crowd! This group all showed up in white tuxedos, the most fabulously high-fashion gowns, dripping in jewels, yet they crowd surfed, drank tequila from the bottles and danced on the bar all night long!

If I can describe this wedding in one sentence, I would call it the classic-meets-over-the-top extravaganza so filled with love and fun that I dare you not to smile while scrolling! Challenge accepted? Ellie and Alexander (or Big Al as everyone calls him) had a wedding fit for royals, but they couldn’t have been more […]

If this isn’t a fairytale wedding, then I’m not sure what is! From the voluminous ballgown, to the grandeur of the St. Louis Cathedral, and the garden glam drama of the ballroom, this wedding was one for the books! Every moment was over the top yet oh so meaningful, and this couldn’t have been a […]

The goal for this shoot was to design a wedding for my ideal client! Something elegant and gorgeous with traditional roots, but a design that pushes the boundaries of tradition. Neutral and timeless, yet a little organic and free flowing. Overall, just magical. I love the way that every design element feels full of life and even […]

When I rebranded my business from Tying the Knot to Elyse Jennings Weddings, I wanted to design a shoot that would speak to my ideal clients! While I could have only dreamed that it could also speak to the nation, I about died when the editors said YES! Here’s their take on our ideal wedding!
