Easy Dinner Recipes for When You’re Juggling Work, Life, & Wedding Planning

Originally I had this blog post planned as a way to share some of my favorite easy dinner recipes with couples who were overloaded with work, wedding planning, and everything in between. Given the current unexpected circumstances with the COVID-19 outbreak, it seems a whole lot more of us are at home and fending for ourselves in the kitchen. I'm seeing an awful lot of posts on Instagram where people are lamenting not knowing how to cook. That's part of what this post was about! It's not only...

Featured On Every Last Detail: All White Floral Wedding in Los Angeles

As an entrepreneur, it can be really easy to get caught up in the task list; there's always something that needs to get done and it can be overwhelming.  Over the last decade, I've had to learn to occasionally stop, take in all in for a second, enjoy the journey and celebrate the little wins along the way. One such moment came last week when I heard that my favorite wedding blog Every Last Detail featured one of our 2019 clients! Thank You Every Last Detail team! ❤️ Ambar and...

Coto De Caza Golf Club Wedding with White and Blue Details

If you've been following along with my blog or my work for any period of time, you'll know that I can't resist a wedding venue with a great view!

While I love working directly with clients, it can be such a fun and rewarding experience to assist another photographer because it's a chance to document the day from another viewpoint, without the pressure of being the primary photographer. Some time ago...

Intimate Huntington Beach Wedding | Jefrrel & Chad

Jefrrel and Chad decided on an intimate soiree for their Huntington Beach wedding. They chose a spot near the ocean, just yards from where they first met, for their ceremony. A sign-in table topped with buttercream cupcakes greeted friends and family. A beautiful calligraphy sign nearby let guests know they were in the right place. The lanterns lining the aisle reminded me of miniature lighthouses, leading the bride’s way into the arms of her beloved husband to be. Gini of Serenade of Flowers created some stunning floral arrangements to...

Serenade of Flowers an Orange County Wedding Florist

Years ago I had a series here on the blog that I called "Wedding Vendor Wednesday," where I would highlight local wedding pros throughout Southern California who's work I admired. I honestly loved doing these interviews, but life got in the way and over time, the whole project fell by the wayside. Recently, I attended Wedding MBA (an educational conference for wedding professionals) in Las Vegas and it inspired me to refresh the series and bring it back! I'm so excited to share this with you and I hope...
