Introducing Sophie Bella!

Back from a fabulous birthday weekend and guess what I got for my birthday this year?  Here she is …

Possible ring bearer?  😉

Sophie went to meet her sisters Abby and Ashley and my mom took these great shots! (Thanks mom!)

Now you know why I’ve been a little low on posts around here … I’ve been getting ready and taking care of a tiny little puppy!



Flower Friday

Well hello there!  Sorry this week has been sort of slow as far as posts go, there have been a lot of things going on!  Lots of new and exciting stuff coming soon to the blog, thanks for reading!

We all know I’m a bit obsessed with purple, well, add hydrageas to that list 🙂

I love this bouquet because it’s simple yet utterly stunning!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!  I have lots to do this weekend and then heading to San Diego on Monday (my actual bday :)) and Tuesday for The Not Wedding!

So excited for that one, I’ll be sharing my experience and photos next week so make sure to stop by!



Brooke + Tom’s Stunning Backyard Wedding by Jen Lauren Grant

Hey guys!  I wanted to share with you one of my favorite weddings to date, Brooke and Tom’s backyard nuptials in Fullerton, Orange County shot by the talented Jen Lauren Grant.  Tom has been my fiance Ryan’s good friend since high school and I loved being a part of their special day.  You are going to love all the colors and the florals by Honey and Poppies are insane! 

This bridge was built by Brooke’s stepdad and it was absolutely stunning!

These glasses not only were the cutest favors ever, but also doubled escort cards!

Don’t you just love it all?!  I sure do! 



Ribbon Decor

Good morning! Half way through the week and so far so good!

I’m loving ribbon designs in weddings right now! They add that fun, vibrant element to any special occasion. Whether it be chair embellishments, using them to hang your escort cards, or for dessert table backdrops, ribbons are colorful, playful, and a perfect wedding decor touch.

US Grant San Diego Love Etc Wedding Showcase

Over the weekend I attended The US Grant 2012 Wedding Showcase, Love Etc.  The show was fabulous!  The lovely US Grant Hotel had 3 floors filled with wedding inspiration, amazing florals, top vendors in the wedding industry, and gorgeous eye candy.  Some of the vendors included The Knot, Ceremony Magazine, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Neiman Marcus, Blush Botanicals, Alchemy Fine Events, and Couture Events San Diego just to name a few.  I had a great time, enjoyed all the yummy food and desserts, and left with some great prizes and favors.

Sneak Peek: E-Sesh with Sargeant Photography

Good morning!  How is everyone doing today?  I promise I haven’t forgotten about you, just been busy these last couple of days.  I’ve also been working on a post to show you the amazing time I had on Sunday at The US Grant Hotel’s Wedding Showcase, Love Etc.  Hopefully tomorrow I will finish uploading and editing all the pics; there was a ton of beautiful inspiration and so much to see!

So the next item on my wedding checklist are save the dates.  I’m hoping sometime this month we’ll receive our CD with all the images from our engagement shoot back in February.  Until then, here’s a couple of shots that I just love!  A few of you may have seen these already on Instagram, but for those of you who haven’t … enjoy! 

So I think this is one of my favorites.  Totally the “Rainy Day” shot I was hoping for.  And look how cute Ryan looks 😉 Let me tell you, it started to come down after this!

I love those shoes and so glad I wore them that day!  They give the pictures that extra pop!

That’s all I have for now, don’t want to reveal too much, just a sneak peek! 

Have a great day loves!
