Well hello there friends!! Sorry I’ve been a little MIA the past week, with our wedding just 9 days away I hope you’ll give me a pass!! LOL I’ve gotten lots of questions about our wedding and I’m so happy to fill you in! First, Rick and I are getting married at Moorten Botanical Garden in Palm Springs. This place is so special to us both, Rick’s grandparents started the garden back in 1938 and his father Clark continues to run it today! Rick grew up there, watering cactus, jumping on rocks, climbing trees and getting into trouble I’m sure! LOL Rick also proposed to me here, so it was only fitting we decided to exchange vows in this beautiful location!!
The planning process has been fun and also a bit overwhelming at times but I am enjoying it! I did have to go to 5 different dress fittings before my dress fit perfectly, that was a little stressful coming down to the wire (I picked it up on Tuesday) but it all worked out, thank goodness! I’ll be heading out to Palm Springs early next week with my mom to get some last minute stuff in order and then the rest of the family and Rick will be joining us on Friday for our rehearsal and dinner! It all seems so surreal, I feel like we just got engaged! LOL Most importantly, I’m so excited to marry my best friend, this will truly be the happiest day of my life!!! I could literally cry right now!! hahaha But I’ll save it for the wedding day and be sure to wear plenty of waterproof mascara!!
As for today’s outfit, I’m really in a happy, colorful mood and so ready for Spring! The weather in SD is cooperating as well so it was only fitting I wore this gorgeous yellow floral top! I paired it with my of the moment distressed jeans, blue heels to match the pretty pops of color in my top, a white bag from Coach and added a touch of VIBRANCE to my hair! Pretty simple but still chic if you ask me!
