My friends are getting married off one by one. This weekend, one of my dearest friends Ruth is getting married to an amazing man and I couldn’t be more excited for them. Last month a few of the bridesmaids and I got together to dream up something special for the bridal shower of our sweet adventurous, colorful, Irish friend. The most beautiful pastel & tissue paper inspired bridal shower was what transpired. Oh and of course had Irish breakfast tea!
My cousin Betty is getting married in NY next month. Last month we got together, popped a few bottles of champagne and celebrated her singleness at her bridal shower in her gorgeous Los Feliz home. Congrats Betty!
There’s nothing like getting to relive the moments of a wedding day with tangible printed memories in person with my clients. Two Saturdays ago had an incredible time doing just that with Jenny and Tamson when we synced up for a live viewing session at Coffee Commissary here in West Hollywood. Jenny and Tamson grew up in similar circles of friends in the same town going to the same school but didn’t end up noticing each other until after college when their friend circles once again reunited them at a party. Funny how life works itself out.
Their wedding was one of the funnest weddings I’ve been to. Set at the Japanese Tea Garden in Brand Park, here in LA, Jenny and Tamson’s wedding day went off without a hitch. The two had envisioned a day focused on people, family, and friends. They wanted a day that would highlight their heritage infused with a bit of their own taste. Every carefully curated element of the day reflected their discriminating taste – from the personalized foil-embossed invites, to the DIY pin-wheel theme, to the venue, to the delicious multi-course Chinese banquet dinner and so much more. One of my favorite parts about their day was how they adopted a traditional joy-ridden Chinese custom of personally toasting each table of guests with their families. Congrats Jenny and Tamson!
