I would have to say Osiel and Bella’s beautiful wedding is truly one of the most special ones we’ve ever featured on this site. Aside from their stunning venue and gorgeous wedding flowers (not to mention the fact that this couple looks like they’re straight out of a magazine!) the love that was shared on their wedding day in front of their family and friends is what it’s all about. Captured by the always amazing Elizabeth Burgi, Osiel and Bella’s wedding will undoubtedly stay in our minds and hearts forever. More from their photographer, below:
“Osiel met his wonderful bride-to-be, Bella, in seventh grade because they had history class together. As their friendship flourished through junior and high school, Osiel soon admitted his love for Bella and later proposed. Unfortunately, shortly thereafter, Osiel was diagnosed with ALS. While Bella said it has definitely changed their perspective and outlook on things, they have an unwavering commitment to one another and an undying love. She says the experience has brought them even closer together since she learned of his diagnosis.
Since they have been friends since seventh grade and dating since eighth, they have truly grown together as a couple. Their favorite part of the wedding was seeing all of their friends and relatives get together to celebrate the joy and love they were feeling, and the entire wedding was so vibrant and up-beat.”
And their wedding was truly a family affair, with Bella’s mother planning the majority of it while she was away at college and staying in Oregon. With a ceremony at the stunning Wayfarers Chapel and a reception at the San Pedro Brewing Co., the wedding featured a perfect fall color scheme with burgundy, navy, and pink, including the groom who looked handsome in a navy blue suit and a light pink tie while the groomsmen wore the same, and the bridesmaids dressed in flowing, light pink gowns. And despite having to try on six different dresses to find the right one, Bella ultimately fell in love with an Allure Couture gown that still has us speechless…it was that amazing.
Before we ramble on and one about this wedding, we’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. We are so happy for Osiel and Bella, and wish them all the love in the world! Congrats!
