When I saw these photos from Tina and Stephen’s Carmel, California wedding, shot by the talented Aaron Delesie, I got really, really excited. Which immediately translated into having to share all the yummy goodness with you. Of course, I’m not surprised by the ridiculously phenomenal quality of these images… you see, Aaron’s no amateur.
Ok, enough with the words – get ready, because these details are AMAZING… for starters, just LOOK AT THAT DRESS!!!
“If I had a hundred wishes I would give them all to you.”
Exquisite, right? I am so in awe of these images! I’m a big fan of tiny but meaningful touches in a wedding, and that wheel of “Wish” tickets totally hit the spot for me today.
Reminds me of a nice little moment that happened last weekend at the arcade with the boy (yes, laugh it out, we went to the arcade. It may be for youngsters, but I think we could all benefit from a little air hockey in our lives). So, near the end of the evening, we ended up playing a trivia game against another couple and totally clobbering them, which was kind of extremely awesome. We are competitive apart, so when we join forces… you understand. Anyway, when all was said and done, we realized we had about a gazillion prize tickets at our feet. When I was a kid, I was ALL ABOUT the prize tickets… so I was surprised by how little I cared on this day. I just can’t believe that plastic parachuting militiamen and kazoos were a good enough reward for the blood, sweat and tears I poured into accumulating those tickets. Even if I was only seven, those prizes are seriously LACKING.
Back to the present day story; we added them up, and together we had approximately a lot of tickets. We walked over to the counter and scanned our options ~ yup, paratroopers and kazoos still available. Nice. We weren’t finding anything.
Next thing I know, fiancé motions to follow him and, leaving our position in line, he spots a young man with an infant in his arms. And what does he do? He hands our tickets over to them. I was so, incredibly angry at him I cou— just kidding.
Loved it. Love him.
