Post Wedding Shoot: Allison & Bret

I had the lovely opportunity of working with Katie and her husband Scott, of Max & Poppy, and newlyweds Allison and Bret for a "post wedding day" photo shoot.
We headed to the outskirts of Temecula to an area surrounded by trees, wheat grass, sunshine and a few abandoned buildings. It was the perfect setting for this post wedding shoot.
Allison and Brett were a joy to work with, a beautiful couple and we were able to capture some incredible images. This shoot took place way back in September/October, and I'm FINALLY adding it to my blog.
I enjoyed every moment of this session and look forward to many more.

Enjoy! =)

A New Chapter

As I begin my new journey as a wedding consultant, with the hopes of having a bridal boutique someday, I wanted to transition my blog as an avenue of displaying my work. At 27, I have come to the realization that I absolutely love to plan/design weddings and want to make a career doing so. This will come as no surprise to those of you who know me so well, especially to my mother who has been telling me that I should be a wedding planner for years..... Truth is, I've been fighting it. I absolutely did NOT want to work with bridezillas. However, not all brides are bridezillas, and I can definitely pick and choose who I want to work with. So, here goes my new chapter as a wedding consultant/coordinator.

So, tomorrow is February 1st!? How did that happen? And, it's 2012! Craaazzzy!!
It feels like only a couple of years ago that I graduated high school; my 10 year is THIS year!! It also feels like months ago that I was in South Africa; that was last October (2010). I went to London with Stef back in 2008/2009, I think!? That also feels like it was less than 2 years ago. Jacob and I have been together now for over 2 years. That one still blows my mind. It feels like I've known him for several years, but also seems as though we've only been together for several months. I can't imagine my life without him in it. He's my everything.

It's crazy where life leads us. People come and go in our lives, friendships evolve, fall apart, and often mend again.
I've had the blessed opportunity to reconnect with a dear friend from high school; Meghann Sloan, now Meghann Murphy. It's been so awesome reconnecting with her, getting to know her kids and who she is now as an adult, a mom. I sometimes still think of us a high school kids, so it's very odd at times to think of her as a mom. She's a great mom! Her kids are very sweet. They have their moments, yes, she'll tell you that, but they really are great kids and she's doing a fantastic job raising them.

It's also unreal that my little sister is going to grad school for her Masters. She really left me behind in the dust. lol. I'm so proud of her. She knows what she wants, what she needs to do to attain it, and she's going after it. I admire her. I miss her, of course, because she's on the other side of the country, but she's only a phone or skype call away =)

I feel very blessed with how my life has turned out. I couldn't really ask for anything more....well, maybe a couple of things. But honestly, I'm blessed and grateful to all that God has given me. I have an awesome, loving, caring boyfriend, amazing family and wonderful friends who love and support me. I'm a very lucky girl.

My addiction

I've been spending a lot, and I mean A LOT, of time on wedding websites and pinterest. It's quite the problem. I think it's turned into an obsession. I just can't help it! Each time I click on a new link or image, I'm lead to several more that I just fall in love with. Does anyone else out there have this sort of problem!!? Be it with the same type of sites or not! I literally get to the point where my legs hurt, from sitting in bed with my laptop on my lap, and I'm incredibly hot due to the heat generated by my laptop. And yet, I still struggle with logging off and putting my computer AWAY!
I've been pinning away, but I've also attached some images that I just adore.

Oh, and fyi, I'm helping a friend with the decor for her wedding, and I am a wedding consultant, so I guess it's not so odd that I'm constantly on wedding sites.

Back at it!

Hello, fellow followers!
I'm still alive and well. It was just brought to my attention, because I recently logged on, that I have not been on here since October!! WOW!! I'm so lame. LOL
I'm happy to report that I am no longer unemployed! Yay! What a relief that is.
I'm currently a wedding consultant at David's Bridal in San Diego (Mission Valley)
It's defintely a position that is more suited for me.
So far, I'm liking it. We'll see how things progress! =)
