Sheryl and Raymond celebrated their wedding on Ellis Island in a summery, stylish fashion. Sheryl says, “We chose Ellis Island because it’s so different, and there’s an emotional tie to our family histories here. you can’t get that anywhere else.” The couple intended to keep the wedding location top-secret until the invitations arrived, sharing a logo inscribed subtly with one of the Ellis Island towers in the background, but Sheryl’s very clever brother Googled the tower image and guessed the location ahead of time!

Sheryl wore a Lazaro gown and the wedding colors were cobalt blue, silver and white, with the blue tying in beautifully to the waters surrounding Ellis Island.

In a future post of Sheryl and Raymond’s Ellis Island Wedding story, we’ll share the gorgeous details of their wedding day, including 1,000 votives lining from the pier to the front doors.
