Finding Lovely Surprise Party in Cali

It was such a gift to travel out to California to shoot for my friend Jackie from Finding Lovely! She threw her mom such a beautiful surprise birthday party! Jackie's attention to detail is impeccable. She really is the best at throwing a party! Some of her mom's oldest and dearest friends traveled in just to celebrate her mom. How amazing is that?  Thanks Jackie for inviting me out to California to capture this special memory for you and your family! 

Huge thanks to 100 Layer Cake for featuring it on your blog today! You can take a peek at the feature here

"The Best + Most Beautiful Real Weddings of 2016" by Style Me Pretty

Yesterday I received an email from Style Me Pretty letting me know that Abner & Nicole's downtown Los Angeles wedding had made the cut for their top 40 favorite real weddings of 2016! WOW! What an honor!  I will admit, this beautiful California wedding is still a favorite in my books too but to have SMP pick their wedding out of thousands and thousands of weddings... jaw drop. :) I'm thrilled! 

Huge shout out to all the amazing vendors that worked so hard to pull off such a killer celebration for these two love birds!
