Hello, Indian summer here in beautiful Southern California. It may be that time of the year where Starbucks starts serving pumpkin spice lattes and I dust off my boots to prepare for the cold, but it has just been so warm lately! The past five weeks seemingly have gone by in the blink of an eye as we finish off our busiest wedding season EVER with 11 weddings in the short span of five weeks. It was definitely non-stop work, but with an amazing team of talented and hardworking ladies, there was nothing that couldn’t be accomplished. We have four weddings left for the year and are beginning to work on upcoming weddings through 2014. So much is in store and, as always, we are thrilled for what is to come and excited about the amazing people we will have the opportunity to meet.
I am off to San Francisco this weekend to participate in and support the 9th Nike Women’s Marathon. I started participating in this race in 2006 in SF and had the privilege of also participating in the Nike Women’s Marathon in Washington D.C. this year. As some of you may know, running has been such a deep passion of mine and I find such joy with each step. While some run to stay healthy, I live to run. My goal, one day, is to run the Big Five Marathon in the Savannahs of South Africa. One day.
As we are about to come to an end for the year I feel the need to make sure all of our 2013 weddings get the exposure they deserve! Today we bring to you Gale and Caspar’s May wedding in Rancho Palos Verdes at the beautiful Terranea Resort. Dragon dancers, fresh dragon whiskers, an amazing live band and a delectable 10-course family style dinner served to perfection are just some of the details of this wedding. Jaclyne from Heavenly Blooms did such a stunning job on all the floral, while Wayne Foster Group kept all the guests on their feet the entire night.
