What was your color palette and wedding style? What inspired it? Tell us about the flowers, stationery, and decor you chose.

My wedding style was very wintery. Christmas had just passed and we wanted to keep that spirit on our wedding day. My makeup was very natural as I love simplicity.

We created our own flowers, we went to a flower warehouse and bought all the flowers we needed for the wedding day and then put them all together. Our stationery resembled Christmas as well.

Describe any personal or special touches that helped make your wedding memorable.

Many of the decorations we used to make our wedding magical, were made by us. My mother in law, my husband (Alexander), our sisters, and I. We bought real Christmas trees pine cones to express a Christmas ambiance. We created my bouquet and my bridesmaid’s bouquet.

Did you have a first look before the ceremony?

No we chose not to. We wanted to wait until the ceremony. The first time he saw me, and I saw him, all our memories flooded my mind, I was so happy and felt like I was living my dream.

Tell us about your wedding day fashions.

My dress was a very simple dress bought online on JJhouse. I wore rose gold jewelry to match my engagement ring and wedding band. Alexander bought his tux at Men’s Warehouse.

The best part of your big day?

The toast was the best part of the day. Not only did we get to speak about our gratefulness towards God and those who have helped us on the way. But we heard others, people we didn’t imagine would really speak up that day about the way they felt about us and what we mean to them. Not only that, but our pastor also was part of the toast and offered people an insight into the wonders God did for our lives.
