We are so excited to be featuring the uber talented Elyse Skansi of Tying The Knot Wedding Coordination. You may remember Elyse’s work from the recent stylish rehearsal dinner shoot we featured a couple of weeks ago here…magical right? ’I believe that each and every wedding should tell a different story– the story of the bride and groom!’ says Elyse, and this is what we loved about her work – her ability to go beyond just selecting colours that work but completely personalising the event to the couple and bringing it all to life using only the most stylish of details…
So, what ingredients do you think make the perfect wedding?
The perfect ingredient for a perfect wedding is PERSONALITY! I am a huge believer in personalizing the wedding to each and every client! I want their guests to walk in and say, “This is so them!!”
What’s your favourite wedding planned to date?
My favorite wedding that I’ve ever planned [to date] will happen next weekend [this March]. It is the most elegant, classy, but unique wedding that I have ever seen! They have thought about every single thing from passing white russians while they are serving cake, monogrammed pencils for the mad libs on the menu, and vintage mirrored trays to go under the centerpieces!
Do you have any favourite bridal designers?
I must say that I am pretty obsessed with Vera Wang! Her dresses are all so soft and romantic, yet so gorgeous and unique! I am all about adding a great beaded belt to make it their own, though!
Is there any difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator?
The difference between a wedding planner and a coordinator is simply wording. A wedding planner plans for each vendor to be a part of the wedding. A wedding coordinator coordinates all of the vendors and brings them all together to execute a perfect wedding!
Any trends you think will feature for 2012 weddings?
I am hoping that the industry is leaning towards natural light and natural, soft, feminine beauty!
Your ideal wedding? What’s your style, name the venue and details…
My ideal wedding is hard to plan, simply because I love so many different styles! I often think about my own wedding (one day in the future) and what I would imagine my dream wedding to be like! I have 3 completely different styled weddings already designed! Part of me wants a gorgeous, blush dainty vintage wedding filled with golden accents! Another part of me wants a super sexy and glam wedding with stunning chandeliers! The last part of me wants to do something so different than I have ever planned and get married overlooking the most beautiful waters of Croatia (the country that my family is from)! One day, I will have to make that decision, but until then, I’ll keep dreaming about my dream wedding!
