“I think Rich and I will both be pretty emotional throughout the day- hopefully i’ll stop sobbing long enough so that not all shots are of the ugly cry face!”
That was an email I received from Desiree the week before their wedding. It made me smile and looking through these photos reminded me of her email because Desiree had nothing to worry about – her cry face is adorable! But, yes, she was right – she and Rich were emotional, but one thing I noticed was they both seemed very present. I think it’s very hard for brides and grooms to feel present on their wedding day. Who can blame them, really – there’s so much going on: All of the attention is on you, and the day you’ve been planning for months or even years is finally happening – who can focus with all of that!? But, Desiree and Rich seemed to be soaking it all in and were clearly enjoying themselves. Together they made up a blissful and peaceful center during a very fast-paced day.
They were married at Luxe Hotel in Beverly Hills and with the help of Whitney at Wish, Wonder Dream, the day was everything they dreamed it would be. There are so many moments and photos I want to share from the day so I’ll just let the images do the talking. Also, I’m so thrilled to announce that Style Me Pretty featured this wedding yesterday, so you can see even more details and moments from the day over there! Go take a gander, won’t you?
Congratulations, Desiree + Rich!
