By now you know one of my favorite people is Ricki of la Ricki events. Not because of what she does, which is definitely most beautiful, but because of who she is. Her heart, her calmness, her soul just radiates with all that is good. I was so happy to have her by my side on my big wedding day. She will also be planning my backyard Phoenix reception!
She has the key to my home, she leaves me cute gifts, and her family bought a home close to mine so I’m even more excited to have her as a neighbor!
A glimpse into Ricki’s soul – Mr. Wonderful and I are registered at Pottery Barn and Macy’s and I’ve moved out “wedding date” to our reception date and have added items. I often get stumped. I know I look like I have everything together don’t I? Riiiight. Ricki logged into our registry and told me everything to add. I did every single thing. You know why? Because Ricki has everything together and knows I need a gravy boat. Is that even what it’s called? She looks past the pretty things and goes for the pretty and practical.
She started tearing up during our shoot out of no where in downtown Phoenix.
“Ah, I’m starting to cry, I’m all hormonal,” she said as she blinked her eyes really fast.
“Are you OK?” I asked.
“Yes, I’m just grateful.”
No more as grateful as I am for having you in my life. I can’t wait to meet baby Michael. You and me Ricki, we share the same heartbeat. I love you so.
