I knew Kim in college, so her wedding was special to Matt and myself, not to mention dazzling…!  She incorporated so much bright color into her wedding, and when coupled with the beautiful California sunlight and the elegant Laguna Cliffs Marriott resort….well, let’s just say A+!  I’m so glad that she met Jody and his sweet daughter Kaya, who both love and care for her (not to mention can handle her free spirit!).

Royal wedding date

Kim & Jody chose their wedding date before Prince William & Kate Middleton did---and it ended up being the same day! What an appropriate weekend to get married!

Bright red bouquet

Kim's brilliantly red bouquet, really eye-catching!

Makeup and Bouquet

It didn't surprise me to see Kim had opted to have her hands painted with henna for her wedding. She has always had a "bohemian-esque" personal style, and a natural flair for art of all kinds.

Kim (who has always been quite pretty) certainly made for a stunner of a bride!

Uhm, can we say FUH-IERCE?! Seriously, image on the right needs to be on an action DVD cover, with a city exploding in the background or something.
