Jennine and Ryan contacted me to create a unique custom wedding ceremony fitting for two people who literally met across a crowded dance floor.  Jennine is a professional ballroom dancer, and Ryan is a musician.  They met at a dance event when they were both working, but at the end of the night, Jennine took Ryan for a spin on the dance floor, and that was the beginning of a life long partnership.  Beside their love of dance, they were looking for ways in incorporate her children, their Asian and Latino heritages and their love of family.  Initially they intended to be married in a front room at their venue, but they had so many guests, the decision was made to hold the ceremony in the same room as the reception, which meant they would be married…. on the dance floor!  It was a perfect turn of events and a beautiful wedding ceremony that lead to a reception full of great food, music and lots of dancing!A whole new family circleJennine sent this wonderful review into Wedding Wire, that really touched my heart.

“We truly enjoyed our experience with Elise….she really put us all at ease with her confidence and ability to manage all so well! She made us smile, and at times laugh, throughout the whole process. Elise is a true professional and her passion for being a celebrant truly shines! Her creativity and arrangement of words brought many to tears on our wedding day…..even to me,the bride, just while reading beforehand! We totally trusted Elise with the entire ceremony….one in which the atmosphere she created, was breathtaking to all!!”

Dear Elisa- Thank you for helping us experience a wedding ceremony that transcended all our idea's of what a wedding is "supposed to be". Thank you for inspiring us to speak our truths and to be willing to truly share our love in front of those that mean the most to us. Everyone is still talking about the magic of our wedding.

Kevin and Chris
