Before deciding on a venue, a caterer, a photographer or my dress, I thought it would be a good idea to start looking at wedding invitations. As I mentioned, my wedding is only going to have about 40 guests total. Even though that’s a very intimate wedding, I am still very aware of cost. As in, even though I have a tenth of the amount of people a big fat...

Since I knew my ring was on its way, I took it upon myself to start pre-planning. This included looking through wedding blogs for events with orange as a main color, religiously pouring over reviews of wedding vendors from planners and photographers to caterers and bakers, and, most importantly, rooftop venues.
For a while I had been looking at venues, and...

My first course of action post engagement was to find a wedding planner. That’s because before I became engaged I devoured all the bride blogs, from The Knot to United with Love, and found there was A LOT involved in planning a wedding. Much more than I could have ever imagined! I realized I needed professional help figuring out exactly how to...

There are a billion things that run through your mind after your love pops the question. First you can’t believe it’s happening, then you are jumping excited that it’s happening, then you can’t believe it’s happening again and finally you call family and friends to validate what just happened. Afterwards you stare at each other with googly eyes and really take in...

You can’t have a wedding without an engagement. The story of your engagement is one that expresses who you are as a couple and begins the story of your lives together. My own engagement is no exception.
I should start by saying that I knew my ring was coming.... because I saw it. No, I didn’t go sneaking around and just happen upon it......

Ever since I was a little girl I have always been one step ahead. When Mami brought out breakfast I would ask what was for lunch. When I was in high school I was thinking about law school, and when I was going off to college my thoughts were on having my own family and being successful, without paying too much attention to who was going to help me build that future...

Well, I've come to the end of my weekly Modern Latina Bride blog. For my last post, I wanted to share a few pictures of the day. It was quite a journey, but everything came together so wonderfully that day—all that hard work for the past 6 months really paid off. Of course, nothing is ever without glitches: I ended up forgetting my veil at the hotel! And...

Chris and I reserved the last few weeks before our big day for all the little finishing details. With all the bigger decisions made, we had a bit of time to focus on particulars like the invites and stationery, the cake, seating chart, finally booking our limo and the favors.
As the date got closer, the pressure did get a bit more intense, but we had some great...
