Stylelab-028.jpgAlright friends, I realize I have been MIA from the blogging front for awhile and I promise I have a reason for that! :) Not only was I in Chicago for a week (more to come on that later), but I ventured off to the wonderland of Southern California to meet up with some of the most stylish, rad and down-right nicest peeps in the wedding industry. Chenin Boutwell along side with the Wedding Chicks hosted, what I wholeheartedly believe, to be the best workshop on the planet. Not only were they laying all the cards on the table to answer our deepest, darkest questions, but they brought encouragement, education and tons of clarity to me! :) And for that I am sooo soo thankful! Be prepared to see some great changes from me in 2010….changes that will rock! Guaranteed! :)

If any of you had been watching the news last week you have heard the sheer mess of rain that So Cal was getting……and despite my best efforts to chant to the sun gods for their golden rays to come out…it wasn’t happening. It was friggin’ El Nino producing tornado like winds and dumping monsoon amounts of rain on the poor state. None-the-less we rocked out a shoot with a bride and groom as soon as the clouds parted and also “OOooo’ed and awwweee’d” over the awesome reception set up that Angel Swanson poured over!

The details were *off the charts* for the reception set up! I LOOVEED this….

Chenin, Amy, Jocey, Doug and anyone and everyone else that had a hand in this rockstar experience I give you a giant HIGH FIVE and a virtual hug! So Cal is my new friend! :)

And another high five award goes out to these awesome vendors! :)
