las vegas free people wedding with boho details | historic fifth street school

morgan + erick

From the bride: “We went with a modern, natural look… minimal, indie-ish, boho. Our colors were mostly jewel-tones. We DIYed candles for our wedding favors! And our backdrop, my husband built out of old pallets, as well as our cake stand. Our wedding stood out from the crowd because of our location — though we were in Vegas, it just didn’t feel like you were in the middle of a big city. We used a lot of different greens for our table runners and arches, like ferns and different types of eucalyptus. For my bouquet, my focal point was a protea, the rest was dahlias, eucalyptus, and some other random things. My bridesmaids had the same bouquets minus the protea. My flower crown was eucalyptus and peonies. My favorite memory was our first look, it was very calming for me, and if we hadn’t done that, I think I would have lost it at the “altar.” Also, I loved our photobooth, so fun.”

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? “Hmm, some advice, use all the help you can get! If you have the money, please do find an amazing photographer, it is worth it!! Every penny! Gaby, I can’t say enough good things about her. Also make sure to have a great support group, aka bridesmaids; they are what keeps you glued together through all the emotions.”

New York New York

Earlier this year, my brother, Hector Jeter, submitted a photo of mine of him modeling an Express outfit for a contest. After much deliberate waiting and asking everyone on facebook to vote for our photo, we came in 1st place & won the contest! We won a 2 night stay in New York New York, free airfare & a free stay at the W Hotel right smack in the middle of Time Square. We were unbelievably excited to go & once we were there, we couldn’t believe we were actually in New York. The furthest east we’ve ever been was Cleveland, Ohio so this was something HUGE! We arrived on July 22nd & left the 24th. Although New York is a truly an amazing city, the weather put a damper on my mood. I’ve never experienced such awful humidity & heat. We walked almost everywhere & took the subway from point A to point B to point C back to point A, it was a lot of fun. Also, sightseeing was such a blast. New York has so much history & things to see that we tried to cram everything in 2 days which is simply impossible. I was amazed the whole time I was there. Still till this day while I’m looking at our New York photos, I cannot believe how lucky we were to have won that Express contest & that we were in freaking New York City!!! It still blows my mind.
