Vanessa & Arnie : Married

They’ve been together as long as anyone can remember. I think after 10 years, people just sort of stopped counting and just knew that they’d be together forever. And they were right. It took them a while to get there because they wanted to live life, spread their wings, see the world. But deep down, Vanessa and Arnie always knew it’d come to this. To a beautiful celebration of their love and their forever together. And really, so did everyone else.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Vanessa and Arnie! Working with you both was an absolute pleasure. Your wedding day and your love is beautiful and I’m so honored to now call you friends. Sushi as soon as you return from Bora Bora. Just say yes. 😉

I almost got arrested hanging the dress from the chandelier but it was oh so worth it! (Okay, I’m exaggerating. But I did get the evil eye from security!)I had the privilege to work alongside By Lauren to beautify Vanessa for the day as well as Kyle from Elysium Productions. Both so fun and fabulous to work with! Such talent! The ceremony was held at St. Monica’s in Santa Monica. Such a stunning church. Vanessa had two dresses and two pairs of Louboutins. So naturally, she had By Lauren give her a new look before the reception. I absolutely love the surprise!
