Cool Wedding Thing of the Week:
From Wedding Chicks - This was created by a wedding planner in New York State. But, I love that you can create is so easily. Like, I could do this. It's gorgeous, it's yummy, and it's almost a shame to break it up and eat it. Almost.

My Wedding Weekend

Lara + Andre, 6/7/14.
Photo by Rene Zadori
Busy, Busy, Busy. Saturday was Lara and Andre's wedding at the Armenian Cathedral in Burbank, with a reception at Renaissance Banquet Hall in Glendale.
It seems to be a recurring them for my weddings this year, but they had so much FUN. I can't wait to show you more pictures - Rene Zadori is amazing - but picture 300+ people in one big room, who never got off the dance floor. "Lara was gorgeous, Andre was handsome, and I couldn't turn around without seeing someone laughing and dancing. More, please!
