A vintage lace and pearl wedding soiree......

Candy Soirees is currently working on some wedding projects (and some secret projects....to be revealed soon)....therefore we are on the look out for beautiful and inspiring weddings. We recently came across this amazing soiree from the gorgeous and talented Elissa Gia. Elissa is the founder and director of
Ellie make up and is about to launch her own exclusive make up range. Candy soirees is pleased to be one of the official sponsors for this fabulous event.... Ellie make up is Melbourne's most exclusive make up company and preferred make up specialist for many agencies, they are all about exceptional creative flair and perfection so it would be fair to say that Elissa's wedding was all these things and a reflection of her style and glamour. More is more and in this case it works.......

Elissa's dress was designed and made by Annette of Melbourne.....a full "Gone with the wind' number ..... she depicted a modern day Scarlett O'Hara..... beautiful and romantic.

Elissa and Greg celebrated their special day at the Atlantic South Wharf in Melbourne....a stunning venue overlooking the water.....The day was carefully planned with every attention to detail. The colour scheme was set for ivory, vintage peach and chocolate with highlights of lace, pearls and tulle throughout. Magical and enchanting.
The theme carried through from the vintage peach lace invites that Elissa designed  herself and had printed by papermarc in Hawthorn......
The venue boasted romance with vintage candlelight decor, tall candelabras on each table entwined with ivory tulle and tied in a large feminine bow, each candelabra featured ivory and champagne blossom flowers attached to every arm .....The tables were presented in a breathtaking regal manner.....from fine silver cutlery, clusters of small glass candle votives to beautifully presented menus matching the invitations........stunning!

Elissa and Greg invited their closest family and friends to share this magical day with them and as a token of their appreciation they presented each guest with these stylish wedding favours, The ladies received ivory tulle pouches filled with tradition sugar almonds tied with cord and for the men, simplistic white noodle boxes wrapped in vintage lace....showing Elissa's true sense of romantic style.

The flowers were a careful selection of champagne and peach roses and were also featured on the stunning wedding cake....a 3 tier lace and pearl design that was truly a centrepiece in itself. The little bride and groom figurine at the base was from Elissa's parents wedding cake on their special....love the personal and sentimental touch.

Thanks Elissa for allowing us to share your beautiful photos on our blog..... What an enchanting wedding soiree.
