David and Tara’s wedding weekend was held in the peaceful desert setting of a private California estate, where 210 guests gathered from around the world. Prior to the big day, the couple hosted a Friday night white party which mimicked the décor and ambiance of L’Opéra in Saint-Tropez. The bride-to-be donned a pink illusion gown by Reem Acra, and the festivities carried on until 2:00 a.m.
When everyone reconvened the following afternoon for a sunset ceremony, David’s three children walked down the aisle to the music of a full symphony, followed by the bride. “I loved the walk down the aisle and looking into David’s eyes,” Tara reflects. “The aisle was mirrored, so it felt like I was walking on water. It was the most magical day I could have ever dreamed of in my whole life.”
We planned the couple’s dream wedding that was full of all-star vendors and surprises for the bride and guests. The wedding day was off to a great start as David surprised Tara with a fourteen-carat wedding ring by Lorraine Schwartz, made from fourteen individual one-carat diamonds. A live performance by John Legend was followed by a performance by Ludacris during the afterparty. The epic celebration was followed by an unforgettable honeymoon that included a country-hopping adventure to Dubai, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Zambia.
