And three makes family

Now this was one happy union that I could not have been more thrilled to be a part of.  Not only did Kara find the love of her life, Jon, but she got lucky enough that he came with a  gorgeous daughter Caroline – and the three could not be more beautiful together.  From the moment I met these three, I knew I would fall in love with them too.  The joy is so thick it is tangible, and everyone at this 200 person affair could feel it in the air!

What’s even crazier…before the rehearsal as we are unloading their SUV of endless fun decor items, I turn to my left and was startled to be looking at a familiar face. One of my very favorite teachers from the 5th grade, Mr. Robak was there.  Turns out, Kara’s brother married Mr. Robak’s daughter!  After a good laugh he says that I can officially call him Glenn, but we’ll see about that.  And their family gets even greater and greater!

Enjoy these ridiculously gorgeous photos and tell me you don’t feel love leaping from the page.

Malibu Hills

I am so thrilled to FINALLY get to show off these pictures of the beautiful Mr. and Mrs. McColl who were married on June 2nd at Malibu & Vine!  I had so much fun in the whirlwind of wedding planning with Betsy & Dan.  They hired me only a month before the wedding, so it was crunch time and we had a lot on our plates!  But when you see these two so madly in love here, you can tell it was so much fun to help them with all the little details. Trust me, these pics were worth the wait!  Michael + Anna Costa Photography shoot only in film (when was the last time you heard that!), so while it may take a little longer to get the photos back, you can just see the magic that happens behind the camera.  Thank you for sharing these gorgeous pics and congrats again to the happy couple!
