WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR WEDDING?
We’ve been living in Downtown Los Angeles for over 4 years. We’ve had front row seats to the “Downtown Renaissance” and absolutely love living in the middle of so much change. There’s excitement in the air. We really wanted to show our friends and family what we get to experience on a day-to-day basis. Downtown naturally has this old-school glamorous feel. As soon as we walked into Cicada, just a few blocks from our loft, we knew it was the place. Everything else just flowed with that 1920s glamorous vibe.
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE/FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Hers: David’s reaction during the first look. It was priceless. My second favorite was dancing with my grandfather to an old mariachi song “Mi Niña Bonita“. My grandmother passed away recently and was a huge mariachi fan. It was a very special moment.
His: All of it.
DID YOU DO ANY DIY PROJECTS? IF SO, WHAT?
We did a few DIY projects and my best advice is to start early. You definitely don’t want to be doing any DIY in the weeks leading up to the wedding. For our guest gifts/table decorations we bought little 2×3 frames and filled them with pictures of the two of us and the people sitting at the table. It was our way to make them feel special. We chose the “Up” score to process to, so we also made the iconic mailbox from the movie with “David & Dulce” painted on the side of it with our handprints.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF BEING MARRIED NOW?
There’s a certain gravitas that comes with marriage. We’re both enjoying that feeling.
