Wedding Wednesday: Jessica & Davey

5/31/2015  | Hilton Torrey Pines

Jessica and Davey's wedding was a Big Fat Mexican and South African Jewish wedding. All 3 of those cultures and traditions together made for one BIG party! Knowing they were going to have such a big wedding, they wanted to make sure to include details throughout the wedding that would make the wedding personal and mean something to every guest. For starters, it was not a wedding day-they made a wedding weekend! They had events that started on Friday morning and went all the way until the Monday "Hangover brunch" the day after the wedding. The couple also wanted to make sure that the wedding showed both of their outgoing personalities. Some of the things they did: -They had a cute thank you note in every plate -They had huge frames in which we made collages of photos with all of their friends and family so they could find themselves in there -They framed the email that they were introduced by -Their guest book was a piece of wood that everyone would sign -They had an entrance where each of the immediate family members came in dancing to the song of their choice -The father-daughter dance was played live and it was a song in Spanish that the father of the bride wrote for her when she was born -There were t-shirts made for the groom and all the men for the horah, so they could sweat those and then put their nice shirt back on -They gave out slippers with their initials on them so that people could put them on when they were tired of dancing -Instead of a wedding cake they had a "make your own ice cream sandwich bar" -They had a huge "junk bar" which is a candy bar with all Mexican fruit/vegetables/candy -Instead of a photo booth, they had a VW bus come in, and people would take their photo in there The pictures can tell the story better!
