Bride Wars on

I am sure you are all just as excited as I am for the upcoming movie 'Bride Wars'; I just love Kate Hudson- isn't she absolutely adorable? has some fun new goodies on their website in conjunction with the movie hitting theaters 1/9, including a contest to win a $1,000 shopping spree; all you have to do is submit your own 'wedding war story' (think along the lines of crazy mother-in-laws and bad taffeta). There's also a super-fun little game where you can upload your face to the body of either Liv (Kate Hudson) or Emma (Anne Hathaway) and duke it out against the other bridezilla. What a great way to procrastinate on a busy Monday at work:) Check out the special site HERE.

Jenner + Kyle, Huntington Beach Central Park Amphitheater and Library

The threat of rain did absolutely nothing to kill the mood on this joyous day. When I asked Jenner after discussing the weather forecast for the day, 'So, what do you think? Should we stay outside or move inside for the ceremony'? She looked at me and non-chalantly answered 'Outside. I'm sure everything will be fine'; and it was. More than just fine! It was a gorgeous fall day filled with the love of two people so excited to be starting their newest adventure together. I adore both Jenner and Kyle for their calm and relaxed attitudes and their quick wit- it was very apparent that they enjoyed the day with their many friends and family to the fullest. A big thank you goes to Crissy of Christine Farah Photography for stepping in to shoot the wedding for Sarah K. Chen (Sarah was VERY pregnant with the adorable Ellie, at the time).

We started the day in a fabulously appointed suite at tthe Hilton Waterfront- I loved all the blues in the decor!

Stepping outside of the box, I loved that Jenner had bridesMEN in her entourage. No rules these days when it comes to choosing those important people you wish to honor on your wedding day.

A special thanks to the following fabulous team:

Christine Farah Photography
Maria and the crew at Foscari Events (they made some killer vegan dishes for the dinner!)
Fly By Night Disc Jockeys
Photo Booth Xpress

Christine + Richard, to-be-wed

Not only are Christine and Richard getting married this May at the to-die-for Resort at Pelican Hill, but they have a top-notch team of vendors lined up to make their day everything they can dream of and then some. Included on that team is the supremely talented (and overall cool guy) Victor Sizemore of VCS Photography. Thanks to Victor for sending over some of the images from the lovely couple's engagement session- below are my favorites.

Christine and Richard enjoy golfing together- not necessarily just the putt-putt variety, but the real deal. I loved their idea to incorporate the sport into their Big Day- starting with their Save the Date (above), designed by Victor. I haven't seen the final product, but last I heard the back was going to be laid out like a golf score card, with pictures of them golfing on the front. So cute!

Rachael + Rob, Revisited

Who could forget this ADORABLE couple married last June at the gorgeous Marbella Country Club? Crissy of Christine Farah Photography was sweet enough to pass along a disc with some additional details shots, and I chose my favorite to share with all of you for inspiration.

Jen + Marc, to-be-wed

Jen and Marc are getting married in March at the fabulous Arroyo Trabuco, and I am beyond excited for their Big Day! They have the amazingly talented (and totally adorable) Amy Squires set to capture the day on film- and I am thrilled to share sneak peek at the lovely couple via their engagement pictures Amy took a little while back. Enjoy:)
