Understated, sophisticated, bohemian, and classic are all the words we’d use to describe Jessica and Alex’s El Paso wedding! This dynamic couple paid homage to their Mexican culture by using a rainbow of jewel tones, displaying handmade Spanish and English table numbers, and serving Mexican hot chocolate in traditional mugs at the end of the reception. The bride also channeled ’40s Mexican cinema actress style with a chic Rosá Clara ballgown for the ceremony — and then let loose with a sparkly BHLDN dress for the reception. Although the couple’s styles differ, Fawn Events helped them tie them all together into a cohesive look that Jordy B Photo captured in brilliant detail. We are especially smitten with their personal touches of a cigar bar, primping station for the photo booth, and custom neon quote created by Big Media Signs.
Jessica and Alex
The Church of St. Clement and Private Residence, El Paso, Texas
I wanted to look classic and natural, and most of all, like me. My inspiration was drawn from classic Mexican cinema actresses in the ’40s. The look was chic and effortless. My wedding dress was everything I never knew I wanted! I swore I would never wear a ball gown, but once I slipped into my dress it was over. It was simple, not fussy, and had pockets.
We gave out a few wedding favors. Each place card was handmade out of hand pressed paper with gold foil and hand painted calligraphy. We also served Mexican Hot chocolate towards the end of the night in authentic Mexican clay mugs called jarritos. We wanted to make sure we honored our heritage with touches throughout.
My mom DIYed each table using Spanish clay tiles. She has the best handwriting so she wrote each number in English and Spanish.
