More awesome photos:

Yes, I changed into converses for cute matchy pictures. I know I've mentioned it before but did you know who did my hair and makeup? Well, it was Erica from 10.11. Makeup, and she's awesome.

My grandparents are in from DC for my brother's graduation so it's pretty awesome around here right now. :)

Happy Etsy Wedding Find Monday!
I have come across this great Etsy Wedding accessory shop that is a mix of classic and a bit kitschy.
It's the JMG Jewelry Design shop.
Some of my favorites from the shop are:

Today I am meeting with Katrina from Custom Florals and we are scoping out the ranch where we will be creating the table scape and doing the photo shoot for San Diego Style Weddings. I have some great ideas brewing and I cannot wait till I get to bring them to life.
I also get to see the outcome of my beautiful Blue Lily Photo session a couple of weeks ago.... those will be shared ASAP!!

Check out these notebooks! They would make awesome presents or favors. Each says something like "Photographers I Met and Liked", "Shopaholics I Met and Liked", "Secret Agents I Met and Liked", etc. I like the Secret Agent one.
You can find them here at Archie Grand.

I can't wait for tonight's North County Wedding Pros Happy Hour! It's the first of many I'm sure, and it is being hosted by Lori of Paper and Thread. She's awesome!!

I am so excited to be able to design a tablescape for San Diego Style Weddings. I am now waiting to be paired up with a talented floral designer so we can get this show on the road and make some magic happen! I work with such amazing people. :)

Monday May 10th Etsy Wedding Find!

I'd like to tell you about 'I Do' It Yourself, a great resource for the DIY bride.
It's as easy as "print, decorate, send"
Check out some of these great designs to choose from:

These really bring the little "something" that you may be looking for.
The wedding this weekend was amazing and so much fun!
I've seen a sneak peak of the photos and they are beautiful! I can't wait to be able to share.

Have a great start to your week everyone!

Friday is finally here! I am making my way over to San Diego today for a wonderful wedding rehearsal tonight and then the big wedding day tomorrow! Robyn has been such a great bride to work with. I heart her and her wedding. :)
Yesterday was amazing! I had my makeup done by the wonderful Erica Beukelman of 10.11.Makeup. 
Then it was off to a lemon grove in Rainbow, CA with Wendy from Blue Lily Photography and it was sooo much fun! We picnicked and frolicked and laughed and found some really odd shaped lemons. It was great and I cannot wait till I see all the finished photos. And then afterwards with the Just Us Girls at Miramonte Winery. Lots of fun was had!

Now how cute are these DIY Soda Pop Escort Bottles:
Check out how to make them on one of my favorite blogs, Love.Obsess.Inspire. 

I got my copy of the June BRIDES today and I love the new design! Make sure to pick up a copy when you go for your magazine fix.

I had these colored shoes at my wedding but mine didn't have the fabulous back to them:

Have a great weekend everyone!

Whew! I totally stayed up until 3:30am working on a project. I'm exhausted! But I've had a massive amount of coffee and now I'm ready to go.
Today will be awesome! I have Erica from 10.11. Makeup doing my makeup and then my husband and I are meeting Wendy and Tyler at a lemon grove to take some AMAZING pictures! And then it is off to Just Us Girls night at Miramonte Winery. It'll be my first time there and I'm excited!
It's funny that I spent many months after moving to California just trying to figure out how to manage living here because it is all just so different from DC/Virginia. And now that I've been here almost a year if someone told me I had to move away I'd probably cry. I guess you can say that this place is growing on me...  : )

Yes Please! :

I'll share everything tomorrow!

It would look amazing at a wedding as a bride's second dress or even a bridesmaids dress if the bride approves. Beautiful...

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

It's a busy day today my friends! Always better to be busy than to be bored.

Here are a few pictures that make me think of a cinco de mayo wedding. Let's party!


For an awesome Cinco de Mayo inspiration board check this out over at Green Wedding Shoes.
