It’s that time again—Brides Live Wedding! Get ready to help us plan every detail of this major event, from the dress to the decor. This year’s lucky couple is Los Angeles–based style and beauty influencer extraordinaire Savannah Latimer and musician Riker Lynch, the bass player for the Driver Era. Through each step of their wedding planning experience, we cordially invite you to follow along to help plan a fabulous wedding!
In preparation for the power couple's September wedding, Brides asked Savannah a few questions. Read on for her exciting story in her own words.
Brides: Tell us about your love, Riker.
Savannah Latimer: Riker is the most positive person I know! Family is everything to us, and I love that we share similar values. He’s my best friend and I couldn’t imagine my world without him.
B: How about the proposal? We need the details!
SL: Malibu has always been our spot, ever since our first Valentine’s Day. So, what I thought was just another day at the beach turned out to be the day! When we arrived, there were rose petals leading all the way to the beach. Riker walked me down the path to a heart-shaped formation made out of flowers and seashells. It looked magical. He got down on one knee and popped the question. It still gives me butterflies every time I think about it.
B: Any initial thoughts on the dress?
SL: I’d love something very classic, maybe even a little royal-looking. I want to feel like a queen!
B: What about the location?
SL: I’m so excited about Montage Deer Valley. I’ve always wanted to get married in the mountains. And Utah is stunning.
B: Any other details we should know?
SL: Our friend Titus is going to marry us. I can’t wait to say "I do" to the love of my life and celebrate with all my favorite people!
