Temecula Creek Inn: Rustic Bohemian Elegance

This wedding is perhaps one of my all time favorites for SEVERAL reasons. Not only was I going to finally work with the ultra amazing Trina Schmidt, but it was also at one of my favorite venues.

Be True to You...Or It Can Kill You!

The summer is the time of year where I get to reflect, reevaluate, and rejuvenate my life, self, and business. It is is also the time where I do what I like to call "encore reads".

It isn't every day that you have the honor of planning and creating a custom bridal shower for one of your best friends of all time.
