In April of 2020, Jenna Sklar, who works for Disney, and Alex Corre, who works for Google, made the tough decision to cancel their July 11, 2020 wedding at the Ebell of Los Angeles. They then shifted their vision to a micro-wedding for July 8, 2020 and had only made the decision to get married 10 days prior. “We decided we wanted to spend our wedding weekend at San Yisdro Ranch because their property is very remote, and [we] would feel comfortable,” Jenna says. “We had booked Wednesday [through] Sunday. Alex’s mom suggested that the hotel stay be our honeymoon and that we get married before…that was a great idea, so we decided to get married on Wednesday and then drive straight to San Yisdro Ranch to celebrate.”

The bride, her mother, and Alex’s mother all worked together quickly to bring the wedding vision to life. Alex’s brother-in-law was his best man, “and he took his duties to a whole new level the day-of,” Jenna says. He emceed the livestream and family speeches and controlled the music. “We couldn’t have executed the day without him. It really was a family affair.”

After ordering every white dress that she saw online, Jenna realized that they all needed to be tailored, so she checked in on her original wedding gown—the Burton by Anne Barge, purchased from Kinsely James. “Originally they quoted me three months to get the dress tailored, but the seamstress completed the entire dress in just one day!” the bride exclaims. The seamstress even came to Jenna’s mother’s backyard to hem it outside, and it was ready the next morning. She also created custom masks for the couple and their guests.

Jenna also completed her bridal ensemble with a necklace her mother had gifted her on her 30th birthday and her late Bubby’s earrings. “My sister in law wore them when she got married, and I plan to have my niece wear them if/when she chooses to get married,” the bride shares.

In Jenna’s family’s backyard and under a floral chuppah, made by The Flower Lab, Jenna and Alex were married in a Reform Jewish ceremony. Afterwards, the newlyweds did a champagne shower, followed by heartfelt speeches and the cutting of the cake. To end the day, they even spontaneously jumped in the pool! Looking back at everything now, the married couple wouldn’t change a thing about their day.
