What do you get when you add a touch of Southwestern, a dollop of Bohemian, a splash of black tie…and puppies? Nothing short of the happiest of wedding celebrations, California style. Featured on Green Wedding Shoes, the lovely floral-adorned bride- whose makeup and hair was styled by TEAM’s Nicole and Kita using THM Hair Extensions in color Felicia- shares her favorite moments…
It’s hard to pick just one. My top three are:
1. Our first look. Not only did Will look so incredibly handsome, but he surprised me with the news of the newest addition to our family. A puppy! A little brother (golden retriever) for our Ivy. Not to mention, our first look was an intimate affair, just Will, me and our… rattlesnake wrangler 10 feet away.
2. Our golden retriever pup, Ivy, running down the aisle mid-ceremony. We knew we wanted Ivy involved in our big day but we weren’t sure whether she’d want to be involved given all the commotion. At first it looked like she was happy watching from a distance, but halfway through the ceremony she decided she wanted to be with all her people — and came sprinting down the aisle! It was a perfect surprise.
3. Walking into our reception and seeing it for the first time. Our wedding planners, Colette and Kaitlin, made sure that we were the first people to see our reception. It was such a surreal moment seeing all of our hard-work come together in such a beautiful way. The Hudson Project was already jamming out, so Will and I got to be the first ones on the dance floor before anyone else arrived. It was awesome.
