Southern California wedding: Andre + Tiffanie

May 8, 2015
Red peony bouquet

Andre works in finance + Tiffanie in fashion, which as it turns out is a pretty ideal combo for planning a wedding. Both involved in every step, she fell in love with the creative process and he was always there to keep her on track. With the help of Rachael of Lace and Likes, A + T pulled off a perfectly moody color palette and modern deets for their big day in San Clemente, CA.

Thanks Megan and Brent of Studio Castillero for the images below.

The dress: A stunning custom Katie May gown with a high neckline, angled sleeves, low back, long train, Italian sheer stretch tulle sleeves and a Crepe de Chine polyester body… So, so elegant alongside those dark bridesmaid dresses.

Tiffanie says, While designing and searching for decor I referenced things in our home, our favorite articles of clothing, and pieces/photographs that sparked a memory from our past. When seeking out vendors we described the tone as dark and moody, modern simplistic with a touch of Spanish romance. Everyone at the wedding kept saying, “This is perfect and so Tiffanie and Andre,” we feel that was the biggest compliment we could have received!

Andre and I were engaged for nine months and a solid six months of that was spent planning! I had never envisioned my own wedding until I was engaged; immediately I knew I wanted Andre to be hands on and that this was going to be a team effort! We started the design process from scratch and incorporated little details that we appreciate and felt important all while trying to keep a simplistic approach in mind.

How cool is this scene? The historic Casino San Clemente comes equipped with multiple outdoor spaces + an industrial modern interior.

Parting words from our bride…

Be present mentally the day of! As everyone says something may go wrong, not every detail will be perfectly placed, the weather may not cooperate… But remember the true meaning behind this day. Don’t let things (big or small) or people for that matter get in the way of you and your husband celebrating your love and commitment to each other with all of the best people in your life! Repeat after me… BE PRESENT!

Can’t say she’s wrong! Congratulations Andre and Tiffanie!
