I first met Elizabeth about 5 months before her Las Vegas outdoor wedding. We met in our office where she told me her wedding colors were grey and yellow. Hello…have we met? We love grey and yellow! We chatted for over an hour about her style, the vision she had for her wedding and her awesome celebrity wedding name. Elizabeth’s second half is Glen. Formed together they are known as “Glizdon.” At this first meeting, Elizabeth showed me pictures of her fathers house where the wedding would be held. Having your best friends (and bridesmaids) help you get ready for your wedding in your childhood bedroom has a sentimental feeling that nothing can beat.
We spent the next five months creating a Las Vegas wedding that was centered around all things food, family and awesome friendship. Both members of Glizdon are marketing gurus, which is pretty fantastic when it comes to graphic design, artwork, stationery and overall concepts for a wedding. They had designed a monogram that incorporates a G & E and used throughout the wedding in invitations, place settings and even the candles that played double duty as favors and decor.
On the wedding day, guests arrived and were greeted with a cocktail of choice. The drinks were created by a personal friend and each inspired by a favorite city Glen had lived in previously. Glen is something of a Bruce Springsteen aficionado; the entire pre-ceremony cocktail hour consisted of Springsteen songs carefully crafted by the groom (I may or may not be listening to the playlist as I write this blog!).
A large cast iron bell was rung and signals for guests to take their poolside seats for the ceremony. Glizdon exchanged vows and rings under marquee E&G letters. Following the ceremony guests enjoyed drinks and small bites. The large cast iron bell rings again and everyone moved from the pool house to the orchard where they were greeted by a royal style dinner table over 100 feet long dotted with candle light and bud vases of floral. Guests found their seats and enjoyed a meal of farm to table cuisine served in a mix of tapas and family style.
More than once (or twice or three times) a vendor says to me, “Wow. If I could have any wedding, THIS is what I would want my wedding to be like!” I know it. This couple has serious style. Pictures tell a beautiful story, but video introduces an entirely new emotional element with laughter, tears and smiles for miles. See for yourself below!
