I went to a wedding on 10.8.10 and gasped when I arrived. Not anything out of the ordinary, really- I gasp a lot when I work because I looooove so much about my job [and the cute stuff that comes with it, like, GASP- cookies! GASP- succulents! GASP- bouquets!]. I gasped because I realized something quite important.
I’d forgotten to introduce you all to Carmen and Elmer. Via blog, of course. And they are oh-so-blog-worthy. But I’ll admit something candidly here just because I can: I’m happy about that. Mainly due to the fact that spending an hour with a couple learning about them initially is great, but working with them, seeing their love and their story and their time unfold… it changes me. It changes how I view my own world. And certainly how I view theirs. So, I’m writing to you now, imparting a bit of Carmen and Elmer and their bilingual love to you.
Oh Mr. Aaron Shintaku my affection for your work runs deep. Plus you’re a pretty fab hang with a great attitude- nothing I could ask for more!! He took C + E to their stomping ground, the Los Rios District in San Juan Capistrano. The iconic area as captured below:
When I first met Carmen- her sweetness immediately struck me. She is genuine, through and through, and now having shared her wedding day alongside of her… I know it. It’s pure, unfettered love for her HUSBAND that keeps her this way!
Oh and P.S. she totally got her braces off the week of her wedding. Along with a killer spray tan. This girl is one hot little mama.
With all the “fierce” they’re delivering in these engagement pics from months back, I can only IMAGINE what Aaron had to work with under the warm San Clemente sun [and a backdrop like Casa Romantica!]. Attack of the killer wedding photos… right?!
Carmy and Elms [just now made those names up, so deal with it]: I am totally completely head over heels in love with your love. Your families. The moments in your wedding sunk deep into my soul and I’m keeping them as part of my heart. I’m so honored that I got to spend those cherished hours with you. I hope you’re resting and relaxing and honeymooning it up! And I’m glad I didn’t blog these until now, so that I can shout from the rooftops how good it is to see a love like yours become a marriage like yours is sure to be.
Love fearlessly today, my dear readers!
