My weekend in photos

I tried to do something different for Saturday's wedding by taking photos from my perspective of everything from the rehearsal prep to the end of the wedding. It didn't go as well as I hoped as, you know, I was running a wedding. A challenging wedding at that due to inclement weather and a music video we were filming that day! My assistant Nira and I did snap a few as we could.

Friday, March 25

2:00 PM - Fingernails painted. Paperwork printed. Owen assisting.

2:15 PM - Car loaded with linens from La Tavola for reception tables 

2:30 PM - Nira driving us to the rehearsal at Terranea in Rancho Palos Verdes

4:00 PM - bridal party rehearsing with choreographer for the amazing music video that was filmed by David Robin Films on the wedding day. I can't wait to see it, it's going to be incredible!

Saturday, March 26
9:00 AM - bag packed for the day. Off to breakfast at Hugo's with my husband. Stomach in knots due to 20-60% chance of rain today.
3:00 PM - Videographers setting up jibb at ceremony site for music video filming. It's going to be amazing.

5:15 PM - Ceremony starts! NO RAIN! We didn't have to use Plan B or C! Yes!

5:30 PM  - Ceremony ends. Portions of music video are filmed. Have I mentioned yet that it's going to be incredible????
6:50 PM - Bustling a bride before reception begins

7:00-11:00 PM
Awesomeness commences with no iphone photos to show. Below is a sneak peak of the gorgeousness that you'll see soon! Photo by the ever talented CallwayGable

Congratulations, Joya and Emre! xoxoxoxox

Thank you, everyone! I attempted to take photos of last weekend's wedding but it just didn't happen. I'm going to try to do this more often though.
