Elyse & Derek, Surf & Sand Resort



What a joy it was to plan alongside Elyse and her mother, Suzanne! We just had a ball and it was exactly what planning should be! FUN! They fully trusted us, had amazing ideas that allowed us to use our creative outlets and took advice when it came to amazing and reliable vendors. When the day finally came, our designer, Lauren and Three Petals knocked it out of the park! Everything was BREATHTAKING! Modern, sleek and oh so sexy! Our team lovesss to have our couples do a first look of their reception space and when Elyse & Derek did; their jaws dropped. That’s all we needed to see!! From there guests enjoyed hilarious and heartfelt speeches, a yummy dinner and danced the night away! We were so sad that the planning was over at the end of the night but so thankful we have these amazing photos to remember such a beautiful couple, family and wedding day! Cheers to the Chestnuts!
