You might remember these two from their rockin’ Venice Beach Engagement Session (seen here). From the moment I met Bridget and Kevin I knew they were not only ultra fab but also as sweet as can be. I was so excited to be apart of their wedding at the gorgeous Shade Hotel in Manhattan beach a few weeks ago.

Here are a few of my favorites from their beautiful Beach town wedding:

Also a big shout out to the awesome vendors who helped make everything gorgeous!

Here is just one of the many sessions I have needed to post for you lovely folks lately.

Kristin and Jack are adorable and totally in love. You can see the adoration in their eyes and they are such a blast to hang out with…even if you do get stuck in a Trolley in Old Town Scottsdale during your session. I simply cannot wait for their wedding this October because Kristin is a party planner extraordinaire!

Here are just a few of my favorites from their engagement session:

If you know me, you know that I live and breath weddings. I love all the details, the thought that goes into everything, the joy, the love, The Dress! Everything. I also love wedding style blogs. Now imagine how ecstatic I was this morning to see an e-mail from one of my awesome brides Kristin (who’s engagement session will blogged by yours truly very soon) that one of my recent weddings was featured on the front page of Style Me Pretty!

Thank you to all the amazing ladies at SMP for featuring Sarah and Luke’s Ahmanson Ranch wedding. It was a truly perfect day!
