{ Erika & Brendan } Four Seasons Biltmore, Santa Barbara Wedding

First words that come to mind about this special duo. Calm and relaxed. These two were it.  Nothing but relaxed and easy going, with smiles for everyone. So appreciative, so thoughtful.  I loved working closely with them throughout this entire process.

My 1 year old

This past year practically consumed me.  I devoted my time to my family as you never get that first year back, and there is absolutely nothing like it.  Not sure if my son hated the party hat more or the hot evening.  Regardless there was cake involved! Feels like Wedding season is winding down and I'm already looking ahead to 2013.  Here's to celebrating Birthday's and too what's to come...


{ Nicole + Matthew } St. Regis Wedding

My favorite part of this wedding, was seeing the couples two dogs walk down the aisle with the Groom.  You better believe those dogs behaved too, but they did not steal the show! We had fabulous vendors for this wedding that helped make it a magical beautiful day...Flowers: Creative Floral, Photography: Rudy Arpia Photography, Music: Moondance Mobile, Videography: Lighthouse Studios, Hair & Makeup: Vogue Salon, Chuppah: Happy Chuppah, Lighting: PSAV, and Rabbi: Rabbi Ian Adler.  Here are some gorgeous photos I've been dying to share.

{ Idelis + Kyle } Casino in San Clemente Wedding

True to yourself.  The wedding was this.  The brides mother made her dress and her bouquet.  The Bride and Groom made all of their centerpiece arrangements.  The setting was none other than the historic Casino in San Clemente.  Not only was I personal friends with the couple, which makes me a bit biased, but they were beautiful on their wedding day.  They were (and are!) so creative! They used EcoCaters for their vegetarian and eco-conscious dinner along with and a fabulous Photographer, Ryan Haack Photography. Like I said, everything else was either hand made themselves or close personal friends contributed.


California Beach Home Wedding...Devon & Scott

The most gorgeous couple. Period. The most ideal, magical, romantic setting for a wedding. At the brides home in Southern California, on the cliff, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Dream. Everyone's dream if you ask me. I loved all the details about this weddding. I poured my heart into planning this wedding with a booking just 14 months out...and then, I became pregnant...and my due date you ask. Just 5 days before the wedding. Talk about timing, yikes! However, the family embraced my blessing and still allowed me to take part in all the pre-planning. I showed up on the day of the wedding (because I couldn't resist not seeing the final outcome after all the work I had done and because I was overdue and couldn't sit at home on a Saturday knowing my wedding was taking place). So I hopped in my car and went to the home to oversee the set up (that my Assistant was doing perfectly). But I had to see the outcome...and enough about how beautiful everything was, you can see for yourself...it was one of my all time favorite weddings and favorite families to work with :-) love.love.love. (period).

{ Jessica + Glen } St. Regis Wedding

Could this bride be any more radiant? She looked stunning beyond belief. Not to mention the sweetest and most thoughtful bride. I loved her dress, her vibrant colors for this summer July afternoon ceremony, and her decision to have her guests release Chinese Lanterns at the end of the night out on the Club 19 lawn. Such a great idea! The beautiful photographs were captured by Next Exit Photography, florals by the Flower Allie and music by Pacific Events Entertainment.
