WeddingWire Q&A with Jeffra

What is your ideal wedding style?

Bohemian Chic. I love the ethereal dresses and flowing, loose florals. You can also incorporate the look into any season throughout the year. I saw a Bohemian Chic wedding in the snow-covered mountains of Colorado and it blew me away - and I very rarely dream of changing my own wedding details. 

Dream honeymoon location?

Greek Islands; Paros is one of my most favorite places on Earth, it has beautiful wine vineyards and sand beaches, the perfect combo, in my opinion! 

What was (or would be) your first dance song?

We picked a totally random, amazing song, “Brighter Than Sunshine” by Aqualung and to this day was one of my favorite decisions, it was unique and forever ours. 

Favorite celebrity wedding look?

Mandy Moore. Everything about her wedding was personalized and a reflection of them as a couple. Also, I loved her pink wedding dress!
