Wedding of the Week: Paola & Carlos


Paola & Carlos
09-22-18

Paola and Carlos met in high school back in 2011, yes making them a high school sweethearts. She was a junior while he was a senior. One day Paola went up to him during class and started to talk to him, so you can say she made the first move. From that day on they became inseparable.

The Proposal

They got engaged after his mom’s birthday dinner. Turns out a “spontaneous photo shoot” for the birthday girl was actually a cover-up to get them to the park and willing to participate in pictures. They’ll never forget the fact that she actually threw tantrum hours prior because she was getting rushed. Turns out Paola was messing up the timing for her own engagement. Nearing sunset they were taking pictures with the family when it turned out he was actually getting down on his knee right behind her without her knowing and it was all captured on camera. She was finally going to marry the man of her dreams!

Wedding Inspiration
“We wanted it to be simple, affordable, but at the same time showcases who we are. Navy blue for a tradicional color we both love and rose gold to have a fun and sparkly color. Everything from decor to venue was cute and simple but still with a hint of elegant. “

Favorite Wedding Memory
“We loved having our families come together from all different parts of the world. Walking down the isle to finally let him see me in my dress would have to be one of the favorite memories. I will never forget the way he looked at me. By far my favorite memory was walking back down the aisle but now as husband and wife. Looking back at those photos and seeing the smiles on our faces I knew it had been one of the greatest moments in our lives. “

D.I.Y. Details
“We actually had several DIY’s. It made many things more affordable and more personalized. Our Save the dates, Wedding invitations, centerpieces, and decor were all made by us. Even made my bouquet the night before the wedding. It kept the cost low for us and at the end of the day we knew it was things we loved because we got to design and make whoever we liked. It was definitely the smartest way for us. “

& a Word of Advice…
“Don’t stress it, enjoy your day. Don’t over spend because it all goes by very quickly. Don’t do anything only to be a people pleasure. Get what you can truly afford and what you truly love. At the end of the day it’s your day. “
