Meet Laura + Richard.
Playful. Loving. And drop dead gorgeous.
I’m SO excited for these two love birds! They’re getting hitched early next year in Mesa and I just know they’re wedding is going to be STUNNING.
How they met, told by me:
Remember the high school days of playing truth or dare? We’d all sit in a circle, staring one another in the face, just hoping the person in question picks “dare” instead of truth. Because in all honesty, we’d rather have the excitement of daring the other person to do something completely erratic and embarrassing. Like the Truffle Shuffle that Chunk does in the movie, The Goonies.
It was one of those weekends, sitting around with mutual friends at a birthday party, playing truth or dare. Sitting next to one another as mere acquaintances, Laura was dared to lick Richard’s face. It wasn’t quite love at first sight, you see. It was a straight up, slap-stick tongue drag from jaw to temple.
Now, Richard is one of those guys who was uber into his hair. I mean, every piece of hair had it’s place. His prized possession. No one messed with his do.
So, compared to what happened earlier in the evening, which was a piece of cake, his evening was about to get ugly. As though the tongue-licking wasn’t enough.
As the festivities ensued, so did the shaving cream fight. Laura was there, in full party mode, taking aim at Richard. Wouldn’t yah know, Laura smothered Richard in shaving cream. And it got into his hair. His “perfect” hair.
Let’s just say they didn’t leave the party as friends. But on the chance occasion of meeting up through acquaintances a few more times, Richard began to see Laura as more than just the girl who smothered him in shaving cream.
Here are just a few of my favorite images from their Orange Patch engagement session in Mesa:
