Being able to envision a design and run with it was a key component of Iulia and Alex’s wedding day. We met this lovely couple on a snowy day in a local coffee shop before we even started building the venue, and talked through the blueprints, design, and vision of The Eloise!
We headed out to the property to walk through the land where The Eloise was eventually going to be. Ben and Iulia’s dad trucked through the snow to get down to the forest while I hung back with Iulia and Alex and explained our vision of the property.
Iulia and Alex knew they wanted to have Maison Meredith Photography capture all the photos, so after comparing available dates, they booked their wedding date with us and watched the venue be built from the ground up!
There were so many personal touches to their special day including Iulia and Alex writing their own vows and promising them to each other underneath the arch they built! Let’s just say there wasn’t a dry eye in the building during their ceremony.
There were so many beautiful and vibrant jewel-toned colors incorporated into their wedding design, and you got all of the fall vibes of their September wedding with the gorgeous velvet bridesmaid dresses. It was an absolute honor getting to know these two and see them get married.
Congratulations, Iulia + Alex! Take a look at their stunning day below.
See what Iulia + Alex said about hosting their wedding day at The Eloise:
“We could not have imagined a better or more BEAUTIFUL venue to host our wedding than The Eloise!!
We met Stacey and Ben before they had even begun construction on The Eloise. As they shared their blueprints, design plans, and dreams for the space, we immediately fell in love. We also felt so comfortable with and confident in Stacey and Ben, even though at the time, they were still several months away from breaking ground! They were both so thoughtful, informed, and communicative, that we knew right away this was the right fit for us. It was such an incredible experience and joy to watch The Eloise be built and come to life and to see Stacey and Ben’s dream venue be realized!!
The Eloise was the PERFECT setting for our wedding. The classic space was adaptable to our wedding design plans. The Eloise is truly the perfect backdrop, upon which any vision can be realized. The stunning floor-to-ceiling windows also offer so much light that warms the inside and really brings the space to life. There are so many sweet touches outdoors as well, like the fire pit, that offer multiple spaces for guests to enjoy.
Beyond the beauty of the physical space, Stacey and Ben make wedding planning easy! They offer open houses where you can pop in with questions and imagine how the space can function for you on your day. They are very responsive to emails and always work hard to ensure that together you can reach your goals. On the day of our wedding, everything went off without a hitch, and a large part of that is due to the exceptional thoughtfulness they put into The Eloise.
Everything about having our wedding at The Eloise and working with Stacey and Ben was such a dream, and we could not recommend them more!!”
Congrats again, Iulia + Alex!
