Floral Dreams

A few good things come out of a DIY wedding, but one underestimated thing is the mad craft skills you gain! We {we = every girl related to me that I could possibly recruit to help} did all our own centerpieces for our wedding and I have to say, despite my minor meltdown at 12am on the Thursday night before whereby I exclaimed this is the worst idea I have ever had to which my sister gladly cured with a ice cold cocktail, they turned out beautiful!¬† We got a few pointers from a skilled florist and went with it from there. Two years later, I am still reaping the benefits of those floral skills, as I made this birthday centerpiece for Ryan’s sister using two bunches of Trader Joe’s flowers. As for tips, your best friend when making a centerpiece: Oasis Floral Foam!

Wedding | Louie & Danielle | Beverly Hilton

On Saturday night, Louie and Danielle were married in a beautiful ceremony held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. Yes, the Beverly Hilton, site of the Golden Globe awards show! It was a perfect November night, filled with endless love and friendship! Louie was Ryan’s fraternity brother at UCSB, so the night was filled with lots of laughter, smiles, and hugs!

Since, I love a great wedding (well, just about any wedding), I couldn’t help myself and had to take a few pictures of the gorgeous evening! Enjoy!

Not only was the wedding gorgeous and super fun, but they topped off the fun with a photobooth! Honestly, those things just NEVER get old!!!

Congratulations Louie & Danielle and thanks for inviting us to join in the fun! Have a fantastic honeymoon!!!!!
