How did you decide on your GLL gown and accessories?

I stumbled upon GLL on Pinterest and recall immediately falling in love with the effortless style of the gowns.  I actually originally picked out the Gia dress at my Miami Concierge appointment, but a few weeks later you released a new collection and I knew Edie was the one for me.  The Spanish fringing, dramatic train, high neckline and the incredibly sexy silhouette felt like it was personally designed for me.

 

Describe your look in three words…

Romantic, Spanish, elegant.

How did he propose?

We were on our couch, in our pajamas, having a lazy Sunday and watching our favorite Christmas movie, Elf. It was a simple moment, filled with so much love and suited us perfectly.

 

What was your goal for your wedding / what was the most important aspect to you?

The goal for our wedding was to intimately and spiritually commit ourselves to each other, while sharing my family’s culture with Adam’s family and our friends. Every moment of the ceremony was immensely personal and had deep meaning to us. My best friend sang and played her ukulele as I walked down the aisle. Adam actually met me half way and we walked together down the aisle—my Dad was incredible and supported the fact that I didn’t want to be “given away” but that only I could give myself to Adam and that this was a commitment that we were entering into together.  Our ceremony also incorporated Mayan, Reiki and Spanish traditions and allowed all of our guests to participate. It was beautiful…. and then we got to share the tequila part of Mexican culture and danced the rest of the night away!

The funniest moments on the day were…

Adam had his suit jacket tailored once more about a week before the wedding. As many times as I asked, he refused to try the jacket back on with his shirt and vest, and insisted it would be fine. So the day of the wedding, he’s getting dressed, feeling great, the photographer is taking pictures, he puts on his jacket—and it’s about 3 sizes too small! He goes into complete panic mode and starts telling everyone in the room that I’m going to be so mad and that he should have tried it on when I asked. After a few minutes of this panic, his little brother chimes in that his suit jacket feels way too big. Turns out Adam mistakenly grabbed his 13-year-old brother’s jacket instead of his own. I, unfortunately, didn’t get to witness all of this, but our photographer loved retelling the story to the entire family and got some great pictures of Adam looking terrified in his tiny jacket and then pure relief when he realized that it wasn’t his.

 

What was the most stressful part to planning?

For the wedding itself, I made one weekend trip to Mexico a month before the wedding and, otherwise, planned the entire wedding over the phone and via email. So I had to have a lot of blind faith in people and vendors, which was a bit stressful. Planning for the trip was really the most stressful part. We had 40 of our closest family and friends travel to Mérida for the wedding and then stay in beach homes that we rented for a little R&R after. It was also several guests’ first time traveling out of the country. That said, everyone was a VIP to us and we felt personally responsible for ensuring each and every one of them was taken care of. So from passports, to flight planning, to making reservations, to transportation….the list keeps going—we basically turned ourselves into personal travel agents. At the end of the day, we wouldn’t have done anything different.  Our guests traveled to another country to help us celebrate our marriage, the least we could do was try to give them a wonderful vacation.
