chelsea + chance
Our 2019 Build-A-Bride™ Giveaway Winner, Chelsea, came to heidi elnora Atelier in Birmingham, AL and built her custom wedding dress with our Build-A-Bride™ line. She drove around 7 hours all the way from from Lafayette, LA to design her wedding dress, and she would tell you that it is totally worth it! Chelsea wore a custom Build-A-Bride™ dress with the base of Saint Rouge and hand placed beaded appliqués! Chelsea has been the greatest representative of the brand and the concept. We could not be more grateful to claim her as our bride!
Chelsea and Chance’s wedding day was absolutely stunning from start to finish! Lauren Smith Weddings, a husband and wife wedding photography duo, captured all of the beautiful moments of their special day. Starting out, the bridal party got ready at Mouton Plantation, a cute bed and breakfast in Lafayette, LA. Chelsea also had her first looks with her dad, her bridesmaids, and Chance there. Their reactions are truly heartwarming!
The church was decorated with flowers from The Flower Barn and Christmas Trees which make a great decorative addition to any winter wedding. Their ceremony was sweet and sentimental and per usual, it ended with a big kiss!
The night continued into the reception where they had a custom cake by Kimbla’s Cakes. Based in Louisiana, they can make any cake that you can imagine. The Bride’s cake even had fondant letters from Chance and Chelsea to each other. It was so sweet and yummy! They danced the night away in the Christmas Tree lit room at Warehouse 535, a one-of-a kind venue that can cater to your needs.
It was so special for us to have been a part of Chelsea’s big day! She was an absolutely beautiful bride, and we are so glad that she is such a great Build-A-Bride™ representative!!
