Cartagena, Colombia Wedding // Real Bride Paulina

by LJM in

Our stunning #ljmrealbride Paulina married her now-husband, Nick, in October of 2022 in the beautiful Cartagena, Colombia, famous for its stunning beaches, vibrant culture, and colorful, historic architecture. Years prior to their wedding, Paulina was living in Colombia, and had traveled back to Columbus to visit family when she met Nick. After the pandemic, Paulina moved here to be with Nick + the rest is history! Keep scrolling for her proposal story, details about her big day and why she chose La Jeune Mariee to help her find her dream wedding dress.

Paulina shared that Goodale Park in Columbus was her + Nick’s go-to spot, where they would go for a walk every day. One evening, the two headed out for their walk as usual, and Nick proposed. Our beautiful bride said YES + then was taken to a surprise engagement party where her friends and family were waiting to celebrate the newly-engaged couple!

When it came time for Paulina to find her perfect wedding dress, she knew she wanted to shop with LJM because of our great selection of dresses, our personalized experience, and the array of designers that we carry! Our beautiful bride said yes to Ines by Ines di Santo Passion – a stunning fit + flare gown with gorgeous illusion tulle and floral appliqués that adorn the bodice. Our stylists worked with Paulina to finish off the look with the Ines di Santo Iris veil and the Paris by Debra Moreland Alfie earrings.

Since Paulina + her hubs chose a destination wedding, they decided to make it an event-filled weekend with fun activities for their guests. On Thursday, she shared that they took a trip to the islands with their friends, Friday included a cocktail party, and Saturday was the wedding day and reception [which we’re obsessed with]!

Our bride shared that her sister Susana, a shoe designer, designed her wedding shoes and stunning hair pieces. We absolutely love this personalized touch and the fun detail that it added to her bridal look! Paulina also shared that another favorite part of her wedding day was when Nick saw her in the church for the first time on their wedding day, sharing a special moment before ‘I do’.

We’re so honored to have been a part of Paulina’s vibrant Colombian wedding day, and wish these two nothing but the best! Take a peek at Paulina’s full vendor list + book your own bridal appointment below!
