After many years of an on-off relationship, due to several career changes and moves, Barbie Roberts and Ken Carson finally unite in marriage! Their intimate Barbie wedding took place in their backyard on April 2, 2020.
Barbie wore a floor length, sleeveless, A-line gown, with an embroidered bodice of shimmering thread. She added a pop of her favorite color by wearing pink shoes. Her hair was styled in a classic up-do which an elegant long veil draped from. Simple, silver drop earrings hung from her lobes. The brides and bridesmaid bouquets were designed with spring blooms snipped from Barbie’s own yard. Her bridesmaids wore mismatched pink dresses.
Barbie was born, and raised, in Willows, Wisconsin. Her family moved to New York City where she attended high school at Manhattan International High School.
After graduation Barbie moved to Los Angeles, California and attended UCLA, where she met Ken. While in college, Barbie did modeling and took on some commercial gigs. She served as a flight attendant but later obtained her pilots license.
Throughout their relationship Barbie and Ken have owned many pets including cats and dogs, horses, a panda, a lion cub, and even a zebra! You can see Barbie driving around L.A. in her pink Corvette convertible.
During this crazy COVID 19 season, all non-essential businesses have been closed. Weddings are being cancelled, or rescheduled, until the fall or even next year. Not being able to shoot any sessions or weddings, I found creative ways to stay sharp and in practice. It is my hope that these images bring joy and laughter to people while sheltering in place.
Hope you have fun scrolling through this portion of Barbie’s “wedding”. More will be shared in part 2, when Ken and Barbie share their first look and portraits!
