Romantic El Chorro Wedding
Umm.. wow. What else can we say? This wedding was a dream to capture from the stunning Kleinfeld gown the bride Elise wore so elegantly, to the florals from Petal Pusher, to the endearing speech from the Groom’s brother. It was simply a dream (I know we keep saying that!). We kept having to pinch ourselves to see if it was actually real. A sneak into their day through their wedding trailer is below.
the couple, proposal, and wedding:
How They Met:
Reed & Elise met at the University of Michigan their freshmen year. It was through Elise‘s sorority and Reed’s fraternity where they met. They lived in the same student dormitory, Bursley Hall, as well. After three years of friendship, Reed & Elise started dating their Senior year of college and it took off from there!
Reed proposed in their New York City apartment on May 5, 2016. He taped plane tickets on the door to the apartment. When Elise came home she saw the tickets, walked in the door. and asked what they were about. Right in that moment Reed got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.
The tickets were for a surprise weekend trip to Quebec City, Canada to celebrate the proposal. After the proposal, and before Quebec, a private chef came to their apartment and cooked them dinner. Then Reed & Elise’s siblings and their significant others came over for dessert to join in on the celebration.
Reed & Elise’s wedding was not only filled with elegant chandeliers, florals around every corner, and glitter everywhere. It was filled with true deep love by Reed and Elise and all their closest friends and family. Everyone there confirmed what they already knew, and that was that they were completely made for each other.
As Elise walked down the aisle towards Reed, tears filled both their eyes. They knew they were about to embark on this incredible new journey together. It was such an amazing day and we feel oh so honored to be the ones to capture it. Knowing in years to come children and grandchildren will see this film and feel the love between the two of them. Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Dodenhoff! May your journey be filled with adventure and all the love the world can give you!
