quick little announcement before you take a look at this week’s confetti throw friday.
O’MALLEY PHOTOGRAPHERS are giving away a free engagement shoot! these guys…don’t even get me started on them. but those who are newly engaged, get on this giveaway and it’s super easy to enter. check it out right HERE.
ok now onto what you all have been waiting for…
and lastly, i know this blog isn’t all about detail and focuses mainly on the wedding photography, however, when the detail involves the photography, you kinda have to include it in confetti throw fridays, ya know what i mean?
and another month is done. i still haven’t figured out what my stomach issue is, but some days, i’m still not able to keep food down. so yes, i’m finally going to a doctor. i’m assuming having a stomach issue for one whole month is valid enough to go see one? i’m sure a lot of it has to deal with the emotional stress that my family has been through and still going through. my sister will be in town for another week so you can bet i’ll be spending more time with her. i’m excited to be able to just be with her this long weekend and do LA things. this grieving process has been indescribably hard. when people ask how my sister is doing, i don’t really know what to say to them. because there really aren’t any words. heck, sometimes i don’t know how i’m doing myself. the only thing i can say is that just having the presence of others speaks volumes and i love those who have been there for me the recent months to the moon and back.
anyways, it’s a long weekend. so ready for it. i plan on eating steak, regardless of what my ridiculous stomach issue thinks. and probably try to keep cool in this piping hot heat.
hope you all have a great weekend. happy labor day all.

Exactly one year after Tom Solomon (Segel) met Violet Barnes (Blunt), he surprised her with a ring. By all accounts, Tom and Violet are destined for their happily ever after, but career plans and comical problems manage to torpedo every “save the date.” Five years later, two people who once dreamed of the perfect day just want to get it over with. Through the humorous trials of discovering who they will become as a couple, Tom and Violet will learn if they have what it takes to survive their five-year engagement.”
and i’ll then pick a random winner!
and while you’re at it, go visit the bride and groom to be,
