Chelsea & Eliott's Lace Factory Wedding Timeless Elegance July 16, 2022

Updated: Jun 7, 2023


The effortless beauty and elegance of Eliott and Chelsea's wedding has always lingered in our memory and I am just loving being able to revisit these as we approach their one-year anniversary.


It was a bit of an overcast day ( perfect for photos) but the weather was the farthest thing from anyone's mind. As the team of industry creatives arrived and started busying themselves with designing, our team couldn't help but take in all the gorgeous details as they began to unfold in front of our very own eyes!

Considering the Highlight Gallery had 65 favorites, we may be in trouble! We have added some of our most-loved photos here to give you a glimpse of this marvelous day! Photographer couple, of Daphne and Dean, should just be resident photographers at the Lace Factory and they're just incredible at their craft.


Eliott and Chelsea held their wedding ceremony onsite, inside the 5,500 sq ft warehouse space. The breathtaking natural light and billowy white fabrics made the space an absolute dream.


Ethereal, really! Eliott and Chelsea's pure joy in the first photo really say it all!


One favorite decor element was the unforgettable periwinkle-colored bicycle that stood on the front stone terrace, with a basket full of the most beautiful cascading florals to greet guests. The florist, KoKo Floral, out of Guilford, Connecticut really brought such magic to every surface they touched! This bicycle was right out of Town and Country Magazine. Just from this photo, one might think we were nestled in the English countryside somewhere. Our wild, rambling ivy embraced the 1800s brick building and it was the most perfect backdrop for this blue beauty. The stone terrace was the perfect setting for our couple to embrace the magic and show off a little. Chelsea's gown had such lovely texture and movement- and she was a vision as she twirled and floated about.



The photo opportunities are endless. The Connecticut River has been an integral backdrop of many a love story. Whether you're stealing away to snap some epic photos at The Deep River Landing Town Park or sharing an intimate dance together in the gardens, you can always make a little magic. I swear these matching hydrangeas in the gardens bloomed just in time to match the florals!


Guests were able to grab a drink ( a Moscow Mule was their signature drink) outside in the courtyard at the satellite bar as they made their way to the summer table of seasonal delights. The Cloud Nine Catering team walked with trays of so many crowd favorites-such as scallops wrapped in sugar bacon, crab cake with chipotle aioli, whiskey pulled pork, Spanakopita, shitake risotto balls with lemon aioli, and mini beef tacos with an avocado crema to name a few!


An antique door stood to the left of the curtain wall serving as a gorgeous seating chart that fit with the aesthetics seamlessly. The added florals adorning the top were an exquisite pop of color and couldn't be missed. Later on, as cocktail hour came to an end, the curtains were drawn and guests were invited to find their seats.


Having a DJ that plays interludes of gorgeous saxophone music during cocktail hour and dinner was such a GREAT touch! Jeff Ladd is an incredible, one-of-a-kind music professional. Vesna Longton; a live wedding painter, was another interactive point of interest! Guests always love to see the incredible progress the artist makes through the night.

Dinner was served after a light salad course. The menu included filet with horse radish sauce- a balsamic grilled Statler chicken breast with pan sauce, the option of a vegetarian Paella ( always a vegetarian fave), roasted garlic mashed potatoes, and roasted parmesan asparagus. Our littlest guests enjoyed chicken tenders and mac n' cheese.


Chelsea and Eliott danced the night away, after taking a short break for cake and kisses. Nancy's delicious confection of chocolate cake, white chocolate mousse, and fresh strawberries made a perfect, light option to have on their dessert table along with other sweet, lite bites to offer their guests.


This wedding day was an absolute dream and we were absolutely delighted to play a small part in their love story!
