Intimate and Chic Summer Wedding

Simply chic are the words that come to mind look at this wedding.  Leticia and Tristan's have a fabulous sense of style and I love how that comes through at their wedding. How perfect are their attire choices? And I absolutely love the beautiful flowers the selected for their wedding. Enjoy this chic summer wedding. xoxo, Jessica

Did you do any DIY projects or create any handmade items for your weddings?

No… we left the details to MadDash weddings!


What was the biggest thing you did to save money?

We decided to keep the wedding small.


What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?

Do what you and your soon-to-be spouse want to do.  Don’t let others dictate how your wedding day should look.  Don’t worry about what others think.  Do what makes you all happy!  


What was your biggest splurge?

We did not splurge on anything!  


What was your favorite detail?

My bridal bouquet!


What is the most memorable moment of your day?

The first look.  It was a very intimate and exciting moment before the wedding.
