Alicia + Eric

I was in a mood that weekend. My pregnant body does NOT enjoy the process of traveling the way that my normal self does, and so if I were to be honest with myself, and after watching my camera bag fall nine feet off an overloaded trolley at the airport on my way to Charlotte, I was marinating in a good does of surliness.

I had the pregnant cranky pants on. These pants, well, they are special. They sneak up on you and suddenly you look down and all you see are cranky pants, and unlike normal cranky, it feels like there’s no end in sight. I was honestly a little worried that I’d be so unpleasant to be around once I headed over to Alicia and Eric’s.

Alicia and Eric are filled with a joyous light. They found each other, and to be near them, you can viscerally feel the sense of miraculousness they feel toward each other. It was like feeling sunshine for the first time in days, and I can’t tell you how much their joy in each other lifted my spirits. So thank you both so much! I had so much fun with you and easily forgot all my petty troubles in your company!

Kristin + Mark

After our amazing 3 day trip to Paris, I came home truly feeling like I had made some new and dear friends in Kristin and Mark. This was a wedding I’d been looking forward to all year, in addition to the fact that I got to work with the amazingly talented Traci Steuteville again!

Kristin and Mark are best friends, and the fun they obviously have around each other is infectious. They are the kind that constantly look for reasons to reach out to each other, to touch, kiss, laugh, make the other laugh. They are silly and goofy in a way that makes it so easy to be around them. Their passion about each other, food, and traveling sticks with you. I adore these two, and their friends and family put me equally at ease with their charisma and humor. It was a day I’ll never forget!

The ridiculously beautiful floral arrangements were done by Max Gill (510-459-5831)

Sherrie Long did an amazing job on the makeup and hair. Kristin just looked so strikingly glamorous and stunning. She was literally breathtaking!

And the music was AWESOME. The Highway Robbers had everyone going crazy on the dance floor all night!

And of course, Traci with Napa Valley Celebrations made certain the day came together perfectly and beautifully. It’s such a pleasure to work with her, and I always know I’ll be drooling over all the details!
