blogging binge- week one

Starting today I’m going on a blogging binge. I have become a little overwhelmed with the amount of really cool weddings that I haven’t posted yet. My friend and fellow photographer Karen Obrist started a Tuesday blogging club to help keep each other accountable and focused on blogging at least once a week. I loved the idea and posted for a couple weeks when she would send me friendly reminder texts. But with the sheer volume of what I want to share, posting once a week would still take me forever to get caught up, so I fell off the wagon and started making excuses. I have now decided to go at this like I did Game of Thrones and binge my way through all our awesome weddings that have been hiding out on our hard drives. I figure if I can watch 2-3 episodes of whatever show I’m binging on per night I can just as easily binge on blogging too. I doubt I’ll be doing three a day but you can count on at least one new wedding to be posted here every day for the next month. For this first month I’ll be focusing weddings from 2013 and 2014 or Seasons 6 and 7. Here’s a little peek of what will be featured.

happy wedding or whatever- stacy & adam

The hash tag for this Ace Hotel and Resort Palm Springs pool party wedding was #happyweddingorwhatever. Which perfectly explains the vibe of this very hot yet very cool day. From Stacy’s bridesmaids applying deodorant to every part of her body. To Adam’s hair being immediately soaking wet the minute he would step outside of air conditioning. These two just laughed and hugged through the heat, never taking themselves too seriously. And that’s really the best way to be.

Palm Spring- Like No Place Else.

mucho aloha- jen & paolo

So much love for Jen and Paolo! Their wedding was at the amazingly, out of this world beautiful Dillingham Ranch on the Northshore of Oahu. We loved how they embraced the island easy breezy spirit for their wedding day. These two are super creative, and both are very talented in the kitchen. They even have a great little food blog called “Her baking, His cooking”.  We thought is was very cool how they went local style with their menu with musubi and poke for appetizers, traditional plate lunch for dinner and malasadas for dessert. More please!
