David Talks About Under the Sea Bride

Wow, when you have a name like Diamond, you have to live up to that name! And when your groom’s named Laté (pronounced like the drink), you have to live up to that kind of a name, too. So when I met them and spent that first day with them, I knew I had been thrown into some really great, high energy. I laughed a lot with Diamond. She had a big personality and a big heart she wore on her sleeve. She was very real and there was nothing she hid about who she was or what was going on in her life. Her theme was “Under the Sea,” and I had a hard time with it because I didn’t understand why you’d have that for a wedding. But to make it work, I started our time together off at the beach for inspiration.

I ending up doing something with Diamond that I’d never done before. Diamond was never proposed to–because she has such a confident and out-spoken personality, one day she and Laté were out shopping. He came back with a bag and she kept asking him what was in the bag, so the poor guy took out the ring and offered it to her as a promise ring. And I said to Diamond, “I think you might have blown his moment; you forced him to give you the ring and he wasn’t ready to do the proposal.” So she cheated herself out of a proposal. I had kept that story in mind when planning her wedding because I think the proposal is one of the most important moments in people’s lives.

Fast forward to a couple of days later, we returned to the beach. I set a moment up where I had gotten a ring from my David Tutera Bridal Jewelry collection from Sears and gave it to Laté and told him that he “needs to give it to his bride–her name is Diamond and she needs to have sparkling diamonds.” What he didn’t know was that during my earlier stroll along the water with Diamond, I had asked her if she wanted to take a little more control over things… I tried to sort of feed her this opportunity that slipped by and said, “Maybe you could make it happen for you and Laté?” She looked at me and she said, “Are you asking me to propose to Laté?” And I said, “Yeah, I think that might be a great idea, but you know, you need to do it on your own time or maybe if a good time happens…” And as I finished my sentence, we stumbled across a beautiful heart in the sand which was made out of rose petals. Laté came around the corner, stood in the center of the heart with Diamond, I took ten steps backwards and she got on her knee and proposed to him with the ring that he gave her! It was phenomenal! He was blown away, she sobbed. It was like this modern day fairy tale. I know there are girls who say that the girl is supposed to be proposed to by the man–I get it–but in this circumstance and situation, it was great and they were both very excited.

And they got an Under the Sea wedding. Every time I was with Diamond, we were either by the sea, on the sea (we were on a yacht when we changed her gown), and then when I designed the wedding, it felt like you were under the sea. It felt ethereal, peaceful, colorful, serene, yet filled with tons of energy.
