PRONOVIAS 2012 Bridal Collection

The Pronovias 2012 Bridal Fashion Show debuted earlier this year, but for those Brides who have not had the pleasure of viewing the uber-romantic collection, I decided to feature it in today's post.

Pronovias once again dazzled the 1,800-plus guests who attended its fashion show in the Oval Room of the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC) in Barcelona, where it presented its 2012 Collections. Among those attending were well-known faces from the world of culture and fashion, Spanish and international society, as well as press and buyers from around the world, who witnessed a unique show in terms of its fashion designs, casting, personalities and set design.

This collection is all about lace!  Ivory lace columns and mermaids!

To Have & To Hold From This Day Forward: Erykah + Ricky

"To Have & To Hold From This Day Forward" will feature REAL WEDDINGS of couples on their special day!  I found this couple as I was perusing through for the perfect couple who I also felt, you my readers, would love.

Erykah & Ricky met in a chance meeting.  However, their love was meant to be.  Erykah, a native of Canada, was visiting the U.S. on a 6-week internship.  She met Ricky, her future husband through a co-worker who had already claimed Ricky as her own future husband.  Ricky thought differently.  He was interested in Erykah and after 3 long years of long distance dating, these two love birds made it official.

Their wedding was extremely elegant.  It was the epitome of glamour.  The theme of this gorgeous wedding was Harlem Renaissance.  The vision was wonderfully planned out and no detail was left undiscovered.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple and I pray that they will have a long and loving marriage.


I fell in love with this Pronovias beauty!  I'm still in awe!

Details included table cards of names of entertainers from the 1930s Harlem Renaissance Era

Beautiful headpiece!  Definately Renaissance Harlem inspired!

The Bridemaids are gorgeous!  Check out the blue suede jackets and bow-ties!  Rather dapper!

My most sincere Thank You!
Hi!  So, I finally gave into the advice of all the Social Media Cyber Gurus that if I wanted my business and talent discovered, I would need to create a blog!  {The Social Media Gods would be proud of me!}  This will definately be a journey for me.  I don't know much about blogging, but I do know that I LOVE PLANNING!  I'm guessing the more I blog, the better I will get at it!  Now that I've gotten this out of the way...le sigh

THANK YOU for having an interest in what I have to say and share!  My name is Donna Frazier and I am the owner of Élan Weddings & Events located in Cypress, Texas.  I am a wife (of 8 glorious months), mother, sister, and great friend!  I am a hopeless romantic, therefore, I am head over heels in love with all things WEDDINGS!

I will be posting daily!  This is my promise!  Hey, why half do this blogging thing?  No need to start a blog if you're not posting daily! Right?!  I hope you enjoy your time with me!
