I always enjoy getting to know each couple I work with. And, I love hearing the twist in their story. There's always a twist. For example, I was having coffee with a couple on Sunday, talking about the tone they'd like to set with their ceremony: fairly traditional, with a few personal touches.... and then the groom mentioned the horse. (The horse?! I was immediately intrigued....) The bride is Indian and he wants to give a nod to their traditions by riding into the ceremony on a white horse. Would I be cool with that? Um, YES. !!
Sometimes the "twists" are more subtle. At a different meeting last week, a bride mentioned that she met her fiance at a Halloween party where she was dressed like a "wet t-shirt contest participant" (with balloons in her shirt and a big, blonde wig). Ha ha! Didn't see that one coming either.
So - let's talk about Kim and Daniella. I performed their wedding on Saturday and I LOVE their story. Kim is a huge Lady GaGa fan and Daniella knew it would be a slam dunk proposal to ask during GaGa's "Marry the Night" song at a concert in Dallas. Needless to say, Kim said "Yes". Well - the next night at the GaGa concert in Houston (they love her that much), Kim had a small sign that said "she proposed last night". She thought that, in the sea of huge flashy signs, her effort might be futile - however - GaGa noticed and pulled them up on stage! She had the crowd sign along changing the lyrics to "They Married the Night". Wow. Just wow. When I told my 8 year old this story, she said "Isn't Lady GaGa the most famous person in the world?". Well, I don't know about that - but that is one heck of a good proposal. Well done, Daniella!
In addition to this amazing story, Kim and Daniella are just a super cool couple. They both looked amazing and had a lovely, intimate wedding. A few of my fave photos are below. I love my job!
