Priscilla had spot-on premonitions about Richard’s proposal—she even booked a hair appointment the day before!—but no omens could have prepared her for what would happen at their destination wedding in Wailea, Hawai’i, six months later: a torrential downpour. And while the drenching didn’t halt their intimate affair for the evening, it did delay some of their photos until the day after, when they rose at 7 a.m. for take two. “We ended up having the most epic photo shoot I could ever have imagined,” Priscilla says. “It included spontaneously jumping in the ocean (and pool), capturing some incredible underwater shots that we now get to enjoy for the rest of our lives.” And that others will surely envy, too.
He designed her engagement ring with jeweler Jean Dousset, who now sells the design under the name Priscilla.
Aloha State of Mind
“I’m from Hawai’i. My dream was to marry the love of my life where my life began.”
Heavy rain on the big day delayed their photo shoot until the next morning, which meant they could spontaneously jump in the water—with no ceremony or reception to dry off for!
