I could feel the excitement in the air from the moment I stepped foot onto the grounds of Tony and Stacey's private estate wedding in Palm Springs. The serene mountain landscape and stunning antique details of the Spanish style home made for the perfect setting for Tony and Stacey to celebrate their love with their closest friends and family. When I met with the couple last year to talk about how they envisioned their wedding, they expressed how important it was that family and tradition be part of their celebration. Tony comes from a close Italian family and chose to have many of his cousins and siblings serve as his Groomsmen. Many even have matching tattoos on their hands to signify their bond! Stacey chose to honor her late father by wearing one of his white button up shirts while she got ready, incorporating his portrait in her bridal bouquet, and offering "Bob's Cigar Bar" as entertainment for their guests. Stacey also wore a belt from her mother's wedding dress on her big day... such a beautiful symbol of legacy and tradition.
I'd have to say my favorite part of the day was Stacey and Tony's first look. Stacey beamed like a little girl on Christmas as she walked up to greet her soon to be husband. When Tony turned to see his future bride, he embraced her gently and lovingly...as if to say, "We did it." The rest of the day was a blur of laughs, smiles, dancing, and maybe a few tears.
Congratulations to Stacey and Tony! Your big day was absolutely stunning and I feel so lucky to have been part of it!
