What three adjectives best describe your wedding?
Amazing, Fun, Intimate

Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
Tomas Bistro was the first venue we looked at when venue shopping and we both immediately loved everything about it. From the exposed brick to the beautiful chandeliers and especially the exposed beams with the skylight letting in natural light! We checked out a few more places, but we both completely agreed that we should have our wedding at Tomas Bistro. Not to mention, their food is incredible!

What was your favorite wedding purchase?
My somethings borrowed were my favorite details! I borrowed lace from my moms wedding dress to wrap around my bouquet, I wore a bracelet that was my grandmothers, that my mom inherited, and I wore my other grandmothers wedding ring that my aunt inherited. I also really loved that my best friends wore the bridesmaid dresses from their own wedding!

What was your best wedding day memory?
The entire night was amazing and memorable, but if I had to pick, my favorite memory was coming down the aisle to meet Gabe. I thought I would be nervous with everyone staring at me, but I didn't even notice anyone else in the room.

How did you incorporate your personalities into your wedding celebration?
We didn't want it to be a big to-do or overly fancy wedding because that's not really who we are. We both value our small group of friends and are close with our family so having an intimate wedding was important to us. We got to celebrate starting our lives together with everyone that is special to us.
