Real Wedding: Kristin and Dick

Have you heard the saying “Everything’s Bigger in Texas.”  I think that phrase definitely applies to the wedding of Kristen and Dick held on April 4, 2009 in South Texas.   Their wedding was truly outstanding.  Something a girl only dreams about.   Here are some of the amazing details. (Be sure you are sitting down).

Kristin and Dick’s wedding was held at the La Paloma Resort  – which the couple purchased for themselves as a wedding gift.  Fittingly, the wedding was the first event held there.

As guests arrived, they were greeted by the groom and entertained by a full mariachi band and served hors d’oeuvres and champagne. Guest then made their way to ceremony where a brass quintet played accompanied by a 100 person choir.  The sunset ceremony was held on a marble platform under a canopy of 30,000 red roses.

At the reception, as a total surprise for his new wife, Dick had Wayne Newton and a big band orchestra serenade Kristin as the second song of the night.

The cuisine was created by the world famous Club Giraud,

and the wedding cake was 7 layers and the groom’s cake was fashioned to look like wine bottles in a wooden case.

To top it off, after eating, dancing, and celebrating, the bride and groom left in a hot air balloon.

Anyone else saying “wow” out loud?

I asked Kristin why she was selling her dress.  She said because it was too beautiful a dress to sit in a closet forever.  I completely agree.

Kristin’s Haute Couture Wedding Dress was designed by Gil Baracci of Baracci’s on Rodeo Drive.  (The  same designer who created Tracey Edmond’s gown for her wedding to Eddie Murphy).
