Featured in Harper’s Bazaar | Bettina + Carlos

Some would say it was divine intervention that brought them together.  Bettina + Carlos both grew up in Florida, went to the same university; but didn’t find each other until they moved to London. Goldberg writes: “Their first meeting may have been long awaited, but their first date was happenstance.” …Read their full story in Harper’s Bazaar Magazine, here.

“Carlos and I always made a promise that we would make sure to get married in the presence of my grandmother with her blessing,” says Bettina. “She was a remarkable woman and loved her family more than anything. On October 26, one year after Carlos proposed, we got [married]. … I will cherish the smile on her face for the rest of my life.” The guest list was small and intimate, just the couple’s parents and Bettina’s grandmother, along with her grandfather and his wife. “We never knew that a year and a half later, my step-grandmother would pass away from COVID. To also be able to share this moment with the two of them is a gift we will always hold on to.” -Harper’s Bazaar Bride

As Bettina walked through the garden aisle towards Carlos, her grandmother took in a breath and held it until tears were freed to fall. At that moment I could see the overwhelm of emotions inside her. I imagined treasured memories replaying in her mind. Her imagining the stunning bride, beautiful grand-daughter, as a child – fast forwarding to this moment.

This moment was a gift.

The intimate nuptial celebration was a delight and honor to capture.

Goldberg writes “Carlos proposed to Bettina with a radiant-cut solitaire ring set with vintage prongs in a gold band, designed in collaboration with friend and designer Tania Shayan of SHAY Jewelry. The two went to great lengths to achieve the design, with Carlos sourcing the diamond in Hong Kong, picking it up in Antwerp, and passing it off for the setting to be created in Los Angeles. As a special touch, the gold band of the ring was lined with pavé diamonds and an emerald was set inside the setting, as a nod to the bride’s favorite color.”-Harper’s Bazaar Magazine
