Love is the Spice of Life – Shakira and Nevada Tie the Knot

It was love at first click for Shakira and Nevada, who met online and found themselves set to tie the knot after five years together. On their drive home from a Palm Springs getaway, Nevada made a pit stop in Julian where he proposed (she said yes!)

As a self-described laid back couple, Shakira and Nevada knew that they wanted their wedding day to be a simple, sweet, romantic reflection of their relationship. They also knew they wanted to involve their close friends and loving family. The wedding was held in Nevada’s sister’s backyard in an intimate and beautiful ceremony surrounded by all of the people that they love. Nevada’s brother officiated the ceremony, and Shakira’s sister-in-law, Veronica (who happens to be an event planner) orchestrated every last detail.

As you can see from the photos of the day taken by Paul Douda Photography, love truly is the spice of life.
