I will admit that I do have some weddings from last fall that I still have on my list to blog. But after having shot my first wedding of 2012 over the weekend in Providence, RI I was just too excited not to share this one right away even if I'm going a little out of order. I was very fortunate to already know this family, having photographed Candas' brother Ton's wedding to the lovely Blythe in Virginia back in 2007. So 4.5 years later I was so excited to catch up with everyone and hear about all of their life updates.

The day was sprinkled with the most charming and delicate of details which have already been featured over on 100 Layer Cake.
Any excuse for a party is always a good one, right? Well it's even better when that's all rolled up into a night with old friends, new friends, cream puffs and a magazine launch hosted at a super cool new LA Venue, Unici Casa in Culver City. Last night Your Wedding Day was relaunched and revealed as CA Wedding Day Magazine and the first issue is truly beautiful and features a cover and editorial spread by my very good friend Michelle Beller , who also shot all of the pictures of yours truly on this site. I was very happy to see my own feature of Lauren & Chris' lovely wedding at The Colony Palms in Palm Springs, perfectly designed and executed by the incredible Kristeen Labrot.
