I’m not really a lady who is ever at a loss for words. Then one day I ran into my girlfriend Janet and saw this gold lusciousness around her neck. That thing stopped me mid-sentence. Her jewels by Citrine by the Stones was stunning. Immediately I knew I would be styling a wedding based on the necklace. Farah saw a picture of the beauty and she agreed as well. Our next step was to meet with the incredible photographer Ozzy Garcia. And just like that it was on: A Luxe Fête + Ozzy Garcia “Dulce Wedding.”
Dulce is Spanish for sweet. So the first question we had to ask ourselves was what would be a sweet Luxe Fête wedding? That was an easy one. We wanted to design something with the perfect blend of romance, luxury and nature (on a beach of course – you can never take the island out of a girl). That is dulce. We were so lucky other amazing vendors worked with us to pull this together. A special thanks to Chic Parisien, Dominique’s Couture Cakes, Ring Finger Studio, Judith Prince, Citrine by the Stones, Keisha Crawford, Dragonfly Custom Design and Drapeworks. I’m such a sucker for all things beautiful and can’t wait to share the details over the next few days. So. Friggin. Hot.
P.S. I lie. There is another time I was rendered speechless. When Ozzy Garcia sent me these pictures, I absolutely had no words. I was so stricken by how beautifully he captured what we created. There is such raw emotion in his work. My man you are a true artist and I love your spirit and energy! Thank you.
