When Harry Met Meghan- The Royal Wedding

I am so HAPPY that Harry & Meghan had the wedding they desired. They stayed true to their vision and lifestyle while respecting British Royal Family tradition. It was not a cookie cutter version of royal weddings of the past including Princess Diana & Charles and William & Kate’s. Though those Royal weddings were incredible ! But, this wedding was ALL  HARRY & MEGHAN, and it was delightful !

I loved how they were intentional with sprinkling elements/ memories of Harry’s mother Princess Diana throughout the affair. From selecting diamonds from his mothers jewelry to incorporate into Meghan’s engagement ring, to Meghan wearing his mothers Aquamarine ring to the reception. I am positive that Princess Diana is beyond happy and proud of Prince Harry’s selection of the woman he chose to be his wife.

This Royal Wedding was like NO other.. the presence of diversity was incredibly thoughtful. Meghan and Harry ensured that elements of Meghan’s background was represented in all aspects of their nuptials. As we know, Meghan the Duchess of Sussex is of bi-racial descent. Her mother Doria Ragland a Yoga instructor is African-American and her father is Dutch-Irish. Rachel Meghan Markle was born and raised in Woodland Hills CA,

The Royal Wedding cake was again a break from the traditional Fruit Cake. Instead, the cake was created by LA born and current London transplant  ClairePtak of Violet Cakes.

The confection consists of tiers of lemon sponge cake drizzled with elderflower syrup and topped with an Amalfi lemon curd. The wedding cake was coated with a Swiss meringue buttercream and infused with elderflowers and adorned with  150 fresh flowers, including peonies and roses.

Meghan and Harry The Duck and Duchess of Sussex wedding was a true reflection of who they are, and I have a feeling the brits are looking at a new and updated Monarchy coming soon! We already have Prince William & Kate, so get ready for a fresh, new and modern royal family!

SIDE NOTE- I know, WHERE have I been ?! I have been reflecting on what it means to ” Live your BEST Life”… And asking myself, If I am REALLY Living mine. Stay tune Blog coming.
