White Lace is so excited that one of their own lovely ladies is studying abroad! Jessa, our White Lace “lovee”, as we call her, is our beautiful, talented White Lace wedding party assistant. It is no secret that she is a tremendous part of our day-of team. We miss her greatly and it has been so exciting to continue following her Instagram from afar as she continues to blossom into the passionate and savvy woman she has become.
We asked Jessa to write us a blog of her travels so far and how she has become invigorated with all the history and true wonder around her. Get cozy with a coffee or take a sip of some rose wine and enjoy!
“As I sit amongst the beautiful views of Florence, Italy I can’t help but be inspired by the beautiful buildings and colors that enrich this city. Being in place so far from San Diego has opened my eyes to a world full of new trends and endless ideas. As an aspiring wedding planner, everything I look at sparks my creativity and desire to want to create magical new designs. The small, but beautiful details on every building in this city mesmerize me. As I have learned throughout my time at White Lace, it is all in the details and those small details is what sets a wedding above and beyond and is what will stick with you forever. I witnessed a wedding happen on top of the Piazzale Michelangelo, a view overlooking all of Florence and couldn’t help but stare at the beauty that this couple’s photographer was about to capture. These picture perfect moments are what makes my passion for wedding planning grow each and every day. Although I miss my days of being a bridal assistant, having the ability to travel the world and experience the art, design and culture of so many amazing countries and cities is amazing.
Each country and each city is filled with new culture, colors, people and food that have helped expand my knowledge and ability to adapt to different environments. I can’t wait to bring this new perspective on life to San Diego. Looking at the dull pastel buildings in Florence one day and the bright colorful buildings in Burano and then the gold, white and modern vibe that fills the Galleria in Milan have taught me that although all these cities are all in Italy, each contributes something new to the country. Just like a wedding, every couple is different, every venue is different and you have to be able to adapt to the changes as if you are a world traveler. The experiences I have made so far here in Italy has made me even more excited to be back in San Diego with White Lace making wedding magic happen.
As she travels abroad, we continue to get the most amazing emails from her telling us about her travels, her new inspirations and overall celebration for everything that our incredible industry has to offer. Weddings are everywhere and with so many different traditions, formalities and styles, it is amazing to see that they all have something in common – a ceremony with two people in love and ready to spend the rest of their lives together. We have some fun things setup for her when she is back in sunny Cali, but for now, Ciao!
