The Perfect White & Beige Wedding Ceremony

Under the oversized ceilings of the church, Ellana and Paolo said, 'I do,' at the ancient altar. They knew that the beautiful venue would be a bold statement, so the ceremony decor was carefully added to elevate without distracting.

Ellana and Paolo leaned on their White and Beige color palette to work with the natural tones of the church. The rich hues of the wooden pews and the vibrant light cast from the stained glass flowed like a choir song through the space. Neutral tones of white and beige added an earthly feel to the otherwordly atmosphere.

These are the intimate details of Ellana and Paolo's timeless wedding ceremony:

The traditional Catholic Wedding Lasso 

The wedding lasso tradition is a Catholic ritual in which the couple is bound together with a ceremonial cord, rope, or rosary. Romantically, the wedding lasso symbolizes the couple’s unending love for each other and their foundation of faith as they enter into holy matrimony. In this case, the cord was a pearly white braided rope, which looked absolutely ethereal against Ellana's lace veil.

Honoring The Holy Communion

Performing the holy communion, Ellana and Paolo's beautiful church ceremony continued to breathe life into age-old Catholic wedding traditions.

Sometimes called the Eucharist, the holy communion represents the Last Supper before the death of Christ. During a Catholic wedding ceremony, guests will line up before the priest to receive bread and wine. Ellana and Paolo drank their holy communion wine from gilded chalices in front of a crowd of their most beloved people.
