I had the pleasure of getting to know Melissa and Rick (and his lovable mother Ada) over the past year during their wedding planning and instantly fell in love with all of them. Melissa is just a very sincere and real person, and she is a fan of telling it like it is just like I am…..while Rick is the jokester/charmer of the duo. We all clicked right away and got on with the planning of their fabulous pink and green wedding at the Luminarias in Monterey Park.
Below are some of their best shots, taken by Sarah Austin from Sarah Austin Photography:
I love this shot because Melissa won’t stop “smeyes-ing” (and for those of you who don’t know what that is, please refer to one of my guilty pleasures, America’s Next Top Model):
The dapper groom and his boys, followed by a shot of the bridal party:
One of the amazing trees that flanked the sweetheart table…..it was dripping in crystals and hanging amaranthus:
Melissa’s rockstar blinged-out cake topper…..so gorgeous!
And I’ll end with one of the reasons why I love this couple so much…..they decided to “bust a move” during their grand entrance/first dance!
Melissa and Rick – I feel so lucky to have gotten to be a part of your day, and to get to call you both friends! The love between you is so evident and I have no doubt that you will have an amazing life together!
