Leo + Kelly’s La Quinta Country Club Wedding
We are so excited to share this beautiful wedding tonight on our blog. We normally don’t like sharing major blogs on Fridays, because it’s the slowest day of the week for the internet … but we were way too jazzed to wait all the way until Monday to share!! Ever since the we got to hang out with Leo + Kelly for their Joshua Tree engagement session earlier this year, we had been counting down to their wedding!
We started the day off La Quinta Resort and after their first look, we all headed over to La Quinta Country Club across the street for the ceremony. Their ceremony was short and sweet, led by two of their best friends – filled with sage (and funny) advice and all their best wishes for the future. During their rockin’ reception, which was filled with lots of Latin music and fantastic dancing, we got to listen to amazing toasts to Leo + Kelly. The stories we heard, you guys!! These two live life to the fullest and we loved being part of their special day!!
Now: you might be looking at Leo’s skull wedding ring and wondering what in the world it’s all about. You see, it’s one of only 300-something original copies of Keith Richard’s 1978 wedding ring (you can read the story about it here); in fact, Leo has worn that ring on his necklace for over 20 years! And there was no other ring he wanted to wear for his wedding band. Pretty rock ‘n roll, huh?
Even more than we loved their details and rings, the stories we heard and the people they’ve surrounded themselves with – what we absolutely adore about Leo + Kelly is their passion for each other and their zest for life. It makes us a little bummed out they live all the way in Miami, but I guess that just means we’ll have to go visit!!! Congratulations to our friends, we love you! xoxoxo
