Last summer, my cousin Alexis married the love of her life, Frank, after 8 long years of international dating! It was such a fun wedding at the Grand Tradition Estate in San Diego, and she did a great job planning everything herself. She chose a red, white and silver color scheme, and her princess ballgown and horse and carriage getaway completed the fairytale.
One of my favorite details was how they chose to name their tables. They met when Alexis (an American) and Frank (Dutch!) were both studying abroad in Spain. They both love to travel, and have been to nearly every corner of the world together, including a several week-long backpacking trip through Southeast Asia. As a special touch, they named their tables after places they had been together and shared a memory that was written on the back of the card. They then thanked everyone for being at their wedding to create that new memory with them as well.
