fun features!

happy sunday, everyone!! i am spending a lazy afternoon just relaxing and recuperating from a busy wedding weekend. saturday’s event was a fabulous success and i can’t wait to share the INCREDIBLE photos from amelia lyon. i got a sneak peek and was soooo blown away with how she captured the day! for now can i appease you with a blurry shot from ryan seacrest? yeah, you read that correctly. πŸ™‚

yep — snapped & “tweeted” by ryan himself. πŸ™‚ the bride is one of his producers and has worked with him for a decade. fun stuff!

as i get caught up on some backlogged posts, i thought i’d share a few recent features about L&S.

1) “make your day YOU” video interview by THE dane sanders

i was beyond honored when the sweet lindye galloway contacted me about doing a video interview for dane‘s new wedding venture. their webisodes are one-on-one featurettes with wedding vendors (and since i know a few other people they interviewed, i can say i was flattered to be in such amazing company!), with the goal of inspiring brides and grooms to make their weddings truly unique and personalized. i will admit it: i was pretty nervous about being interviewed on camera and immediately after dane & lindye left, i called my bff kristin (of the treasured petal) to bemoan what i believed was an extremely awkward interview (on my end!). lol thankfully dane & co. know how to skillfully edit a vid so i appear a lot less awkward. πŸ™‚

take a peek and let me know what you think! try not to poke too much fun — it was unscripted and totally extemporaneous. xoxo to dane & lindye for a wonderful experience! so appreciative of the opportunity to chat with you both!

2) southern weddings feature for marie & kevin’s wedding!

thank you to the lovely ladies over at southern weddings magazine for the beautiful piece they did on marie & kevin’s hip & modern wedding earlier this year. all of their colorful photos make me smile — travis hoehne did such a fab job shooting their wedding!

3) junebug feature on my mom’s wedding!

although the feature was posted a few months ago, i thought i’d redirect you there in honor of mom & raj’s one year anniversary yesterday! i can’t believe a year has flown by since their spectacular event at the bacara resort and spa in goleta.

they are currently celebrating (as only they know how) in paris, their favorite city. they go annually in the spring but are now adding a 2nd fall trip. i eagerly await their return this weekend. raj promises to return with gifts in tow…namely ladurΓ©e macarons and perfume. πŸ™‚

enjoy the photo-laden feature via junebug. there are lots of images i didn’t include in my own recap last year. too many INSANE photos, courtesy of my dear friend trista lerit.

hope you all have a splendid week! i am planning on a fab one, myself!

xoxo, angel



  1. I am probably your only reader more excited about Laduree than Seacrest. πŸ˜‰

  2. You were NOT awkward at all! You were adorable! No amount of editing will ease the awkwardness of MY interview πŸ™‚ Joe recognized the statue in back of you- is it an orginal??? Congrats on all the features!

    • hi krissy! yep — it’s richard macdonald. xo

  3. congrats on the continued accomplishments and features!

  4. Congrats on all the accomplishments! I loved watching the video and seeing you in action, finally. πŸ™‚ I thought you were great! Cute dress, too.

  5. Has is already been a year since your Mom and Raj’s wedding?? My how times flies! I loved your!!

  6. That’s a gorgeous picture of your mom and her husband! I’ve always wanted to go to the Bacara resort. Maybe I can renew my vows there once I can afford to have the wedding of my dreams!

    Have a wonderful weekend! πŸ™‚
