Wedding: Interrupted. Three Ways Mestiza Brides are Making the Best of Covid
Posted on 16 December 2020
It’s taken some of the finest wedding planners to make the best of revising receptions and ceremonies for 2020, but these brides have shown that anything is possible.
We’re highlighting three brides who have excelled at making their day special, no matter the circumstances.
Janell Hickman: Swapping Destination wedding for an intimate celebration.
Minneapolis-gone-Brooklyn girl Janell kept “touch and go” contact with her original wedding venue, Los Poblanos in Albuquerque, New Mexico until it was clear that Covid was here to stay for the rest of 2020. Since the couple has been together for an exemplary 11 years, they knew a change in date wouldn’t be the answer and decided to scale the wedding down to 30 people with the addition of other guests joining the celebration virtually.
Janell stunned in two Mestiza Micro-Bride pieces, the Pericon Midi and the Sintra Mini for two of her pre-nuptial wedding events.

Leah Brzyski: Ceremony Now, Party Later.
After meeting through friends and their musical education degrees, Leah and her fiancée fell into perfect harmony and were engaged in July of 2019. After re-planning their original plans to wed in Leah’s hometown due to indoor ceremony covid restrictions, they swiftly rearranged for a rooftop ceremony in Detroit. Have no fear! This couple plans to re-plan a big party when it’s safer for everyone to join in the fun.
Leah wore the Puff Puff Midi Dress for her micro-ceremony look and she definitely rocked that “Something Blue”!

Caila Quinn: Two Weddings are Better Than One.
Mestiza sweetheart, Caila is doing what she does best for her big day: making it memorable! For Caila and her fiancé, it was without a doubt that they would be wed abroad because of their shared love for travel. Even though their date in Lake Como, Italy is planned for May of 2021, they knew their day would still come with covid setbacks for many of their guests who would not be able to travel and celebrate with them. Luckily, Caila thought of everything and the two will have a second ceremony in Ohio, where Caila is from, to make sure everyone will be there to join in the festivities.
Caila wore the Georgiana Gown for her engagement photos to give the romantic feeling of already being in Italy!
