Bella Blooms

I wanted to provide a little summer inspiration for all of our readers. We recently had the pleasure of collaborating with the amazing Gina at Mille Fiori, and she and her team delivered for our clients. Lauren & Stephen got married on July 4th, and Lauren's colors were a watermelon pink with accents of orange & corals. She really wanted to create an amazing summer vibe for her Marina del Rey wedding, and Gina surpassed all of my expectations!

Here are a couple of sneak pics of the gorgeous florals by Gina and her team, courtesy of Laura at Beautiful Day Photography, be sure to stay tuned for the complete wedding post, so many gorgeous shots to chose from will take me a little longer to get the whole wedding together.

What a bright color palette for this beautiful Southern California Monday.

Frosting Friday

The inspiration for today's Frosting Friday came a few days ago when I received a gift of the most beautiful box of french macarons from Bottega Louie. It was a gorgeous pink box filled with brightly colored macarons, and they were so delicious that I gobbled them up before I even thought to take a picture, so you'll just have to imagine how beautiful they were :) But I will leave you with this photo of a fantastic macaron tower wedding cake from Bobbette & Belle in Toronto. Enjoy!

PS - I am making this cake over the weekend, wish me luck!

Jennifer & Jeremy ~ Engagement Session ~ Santa Monica

I know, I know...where have Susan and I been, all I can say is we have been the busiest we have ever been, which of course is a good thing, but the blog has really felt neglected. (We know our regular readers are also feeling neglected, so after what feels like an eternity we promise to get back to our regular posting schedule. We are excited to share all the exciting events and weddings we have been working on over the past few months, so stay tuned.)

Today, I am happy to share with you the engagement session for Jennifer and Jeremy, who got married the end of June at the amazing Sunset Restaurant in Malibu. We are can't wait to see all the amazing photos that the team from Next Exit Photography captured on the wedding!

For their engagement session, Jennifer & Jeremy who live in Vegas wanted a mix of both urban and of course beach, what better place to go then Santa Monica. Hope you enjoy!
