The Couple: Catarina and Ross
The Wedding: 9.22.12 in Lake Tahoe, Nevada
What three adjectives best describe your wedding? Casual Chic, Modern, Vibrant.
What was your wedding color palette? I utilized an array of colors, including melon/guava, deep purple and royal blue.
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? I wanted to choose a style that represented my husband and I. We are both pretty low-key, but like to add unique flare to whatever we do. One of the main style staples of my wedding was Chevron print I love the modern, yet funky twist of detail that it adds. I offset the more neutral Chevron patterns with bright, vibrant colors to create a sense of energy and excitement.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? There are so many memorable memories from our wedding. From the moment we walked down the aisle with 150 of our closest friends and family in attendance to the night-time party that had everyone enthusiastically partying on the dance floor, there isnt a moment we would change. Certain special touches added to our night, including our personalized table navigation, our ALISIANI mugs, photo booth and custom dessert table. The dance that we choreographed to Thompson Square for 2 months prior to our wedding came out amazing and was a huge hit with our guests. In addition, the food was delectable both during the cocktail hour and reception. Some items to note include the create your own risotto station, fresh mozzarella and specialty Huckleberry vodka/lemonade cocktails.
What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? Have fun! This is a once in a lifetime event that has the potential to be very stressful. If you take time to enjoy every second of the planning process and wedding day festivities, you are less likely to feel overwhelmed by everything. It also helps to have an amazing wedding planner who can handle all the little details for you.
