As hard as it may ever be to tear me away from my blooming little girl, I’m always pleased and refreshed to find myself in such happy, distracting, entirely adult company. Christina and Elliot are getting married at, well probably my favorite venue in Calistoga, and they were kind enough to invite me into their world for a day on the most beautiful day I’ve ever experienced in the most beautiful city I know.
There’s nothing I love more than a wedding on a dark and chilly December night (like my own wedding!). Rachel and Christjan were like two magnets, drawn to each other across thresholds and rooms in the warm glow of the Carondolet House in LA. For the most part there was no schedule or order of business. Just a wedding, dinner and dancing, in an open room with an open bar, and old friends. I had the pleasure of working with Kat Keane on this wedding, and I can’t tell you how grateful I was to be home in 20 minutes at the end of the day!! Yay LA!
It was such a pleasure to spend a nice, leisurely day with Rachel and Christjan in their beautiful town of Mar Vista, and in their gorgeous home, that admittedly, I was drooling over. How grateful I am that I live and work in a place where November looks like this! We lunched, we drank, we shared stories, and it was exactly the kind of experience that makes me so keen to spend time with my clients. Thanks for such a great day!
What a day. I’ve been really lucky this year to shoot a lot of weddings that my dear Huz has provided music for, getting to spend the day together but doing our own thing, in the most picturesque of places, with the most warm and amazing people. I feel very blessed to have been found by Clint and Eleanor through their discovery of my husbands band. And I find myself with the great fortune of living in the same city, and I look forward to lunches and dinners we might share together in the future.
