Elizabeth & Chris – St. Therese of Lisieux Wedding

February 22, 2012 |  by  |  Weddings  |  Share

Hello!  I’ve got a pretty big post to share today.  Elizabeth and Chris were married last year at St. Therese of Lisieux in Shelby Township, and had their reception at Penna’s.  (Check out their engagement session here.) I started the day at the home of Elizabeth’s parents, where all of Elizabeth’s accessories were carefully laid out, including her gorgeous dress (on a custom hanger!) and Badgley Mischka shoes.

These custom hangers are a huge trend right now, and you can find several options on Etsy.  The style above, with the wood top is the way to go….the all metal ones tend to sag or warp under the weight of dresses, and without that little notch, some of the dresses won’t stay put on the hanger.

Andy met up with the guys and got some great portraits of Chris and his groomsmen.

The reception decor was really lovely and elegant, with a palette of creams, gold, and bright pops of pink.
