I can’t believe how fast time passes us by.  Casey and I have been emailing back and forth recently about her new venture FutureWise Consulting and realized that a year had quickly gone by since her wedding. 

I didn’t have a chance to post any pictures from her wedding since it’s been quite difficult to get a hold of her photographer, however, I did manage to pull some pictures off her personal site to share with you all as well as a short video that my friend Andrew of Tour LA formely Iobon Cinema shot of their wedding.

I’m so proud of you Casey and what you are doing to help mentor students through the college transition.  We need more people like you in this world.

Claudia just radiates with happiness.  She has the most beautiful smile that can just light up a room.  I’m so excited for her upcoming wedding in just a few weeks.  William of William Kim Photography has out done himself again.  I’m delighted to be working with him this year.  He has simply become one of my favorite photographers.  He has such a caring demeanor about him and a calming effect with dealing with my clients.  I hear nothing but raves on how comfortable he makes them feel. 

Claudia and I met many moons ago while attending the same high school.  Although we lost touch after high school the miracle that is FACEBOOK and mutual friends have managed to get us reconnected.  When she emailed me asking if I would help her and her fiance plan their upcoming wedding, I was simply honored.  I love planning weddings but I especially love planning my friends weddings.  There is just a different level of mutual respect for one another and the bonds that are formed during the process are just irreplaceable.  Thank you Claudia for allowing me to be a part of your special day.  I can’t wait for your wedding!

I can’t believe the year is winding down.  For as much as I’m looking forward to my mini vacation in December, I’m definitely going to miss all my wonderful clients.  I’m so fortunate to work with amazing individuals such as Elisabeth and Damian.  It’s been so much fun picking out colors, creating invitations, selecting floral designs and now as we approach the final details of the wedding are coming together.

Once again William Kim of William Kim Photography has managed to capture the love, love, love between Elisabeth + Damian along with their two little adorable dogs. I’m looking forward to their celebration this upcoming November.

This past weekend was the wedding celebration of Eric and Blanca at the Renaissance Hotel of Long Beach.  Although it’s only been a few days I can’t wait to see all the amazing picture that Desi of Desi Baytan Photography took.  Here is a little sneak peak at their engagement session while we wait for the wedding pictures to be processed.

These two crazy kids are getting married! I love working with wedding photographers when it comes to planning their own wedding. It’s been a great year for The Wedding Clique and this wedding will be special for all of us involved. Henry Chen will be photographing their wedding on a very special date 10-10-10! You can see some more of their engagement session by visiting HCP blog.

Lucky for me my lovely friends are photographers and are nice enough to shot some great photos of their invitations.  After a couple meetings with Allison + Nathan we finally got the color scheme down and made a design selection.  As some of you may already know I’m fortunate enough to work with some amazing local stationery designers.  After selecting the new Pocket Fold and one of my absolutely new favorite card stock Anvil from Envelopments we chose one of Monica’s of Paper Cut Industries signature designs. 

I just love how you can take two different concepts and mix it up a bit to create your very own semi-custom design.  I love the color combination we came up with and the new pocket fold lends perfect with the modern inspired wedding. Thanks Nathan for taking pictures of your invitations.

This year has definitely been the year of warp speed planning.  Just a few months ago I received a call from Diana asking if I could plan a wedding in two months?  You read that correctly my friends, two months.  So the search began.  We were fortunate enough to book The Los Angeles Rive and Center Garden, where Melissa and Bernies wedding just took place.  That in itself was a miracle.  If you’re not familiar with the River, this venue usually books 18 months in advance.  All the planning is complete, my studio is packed with all the decor, finalizing a few last minute details and we’re ready for show time next week. 

I’m excited to share with you a few of their engagement photos that Jenny Park took.  Jenny is working on a new site, so unfortunately can’t share her work with you just yet, but I will link back once it is up. (Link is up)

I am beyond excited to have met both Yolanda and Hanson. Thank you Henry Chen Photography for blogging about me. Because of you Yolanda found me. We’ve had so much much finding a venue in the San Ynez area and recently completed their Mexcian, Chinese, and American inspired save-the-date cards. I can’t wait to share those with everyone as well. Congratulations Yolanda and Hanson, you’re e-session pictures are beautiful. I can’t wait for your wedding day.

Six months ago during a house warming party my dear friends Ivis and Mike surprised us all by announcing they were engaged.  I couldn’t be more happier for her.  She is an amazing person and I’m thrilled to be a part of their special day.  Shortly after the announcement another surprise, the date was set.  She asked me “do you think we can plan a wedding in four months?” Absolutely!  So here we are less 36 days away from the bid day.

I’m fortunate to have some amazing vendors working with me on such a short notice.  Always impressed by Henry Chen and his mad photography skills.  Thank you so much for always taking care of my clients, extra thanks when you treat my friends like your own.  For more shots of the e-session click here.

Ivis is also a very crafty and talented jewelry designer.  I’m looking forward to all the DYI projects she’s taken on with so little time to plan.  You can follow her wedding planning thoughts as she blogs about all the planning on Anythig Sparkly,

I’ve been blessed to have such wonderful couples to work with.  I still remember the day Ilia called me on the phone to discuss my services, we just couldn’t stop talking.  After meeting Evan at our first consultation, it was evident why these two were getting married.  They have the best outlook not only on their relationship but on life itself.  I’m looking forward to their wedding this year.  Lot’s of planning still to do. 

I met with Ilia and Evan early this past Sunday morning to finalize their stationary design.  Shortly after that they met with  Henry for their engagement session.  Not even the rain could stop these crazy kids.  For more pictures venture over to Henry’s blog .
