Each bridesmaid had their own specific dress and style. "I wanted  the bridesmaids to reflect our undefined color story in its effortless mix, so I chose a soft palette of ivory, nude, blush pink and lavender gowns, bringing in pops of dark romantic color in the headpieces and jewelry," Jessica says.

Jessica and Chetan "whisked one another" off their feet, as they dated and traveled the world together. So it was very fitting that the two settled on a destination wedding in Europe. The ceremony and reception were held at Hôtel Chateau d'Esclimont in Bleury-Saint-Symphorien, France. And the theme incorporated deep burgundy, dusty blue, rich velvet and antique art in a luxe outdoor setting.
