{CONFETTI THROW FRIDAYS} NO. 58…

if you’ve followed the blog for awhile, you know i have featured some crazy good pacific northwest folks.  a good handful of them have become such close friends of mine and are like family to me.  i spent last weekend up in Seattle to celebrate Amber‘s pre-wedding to Luke, stayed with ShodaLove and his family, and got to see some of my favorite wedding photographers and meet some for the first time face to face after five years of friendship.  when you are in the company of some truly highly regarded wedding photographers, you of course don’t take any pictures because you’re terribly ashamed of how bad your picture taking skills are.  so i’m really sorry, but i don’t have any pictures from our hang outs in Seattle so instead, i really need to just shout it out to all those that came to hang out with me.

 thank you all for taking the time to come say hi and give hugs.  you guys have no idea how much the hanging out time with you all means to me.  truly appreciate all the love and support that you give this blog daily and some since the beginning.  so grateful to have been able to spend time with you all.  *throws confetti*

and so obviously, you’ll see some PNW folks in this week’s confetti throw fridays.  so enjoy!

{CONFETTI THROW FRIDAYS} NO. 57…

i am off gallivanting in Seattle this weekend and excited to spend time with some of my dearest friends who also happen to be wedding photographers, many of whom i have been so lucky to feature on here.

so since i didn’t get the chance to scour and get lost in my wedding photographer blog subscriptions, i shall share with you a same day edit wedding video instead.

ALEX RAPADA is himself a stellar wedding photographer and he recently got hitched to his love of the life and sent over his wedding video to share.  truly honored and flattered to share this with you all…so enjoy!

JASON MAGBANUA‘S work is truly out of this world and spectacular.  i love that with Alex and Ivy’s wedding he focused on just the two of them and all the giddy happiness that was everywhere between the two of them that day.  head on over HERE to see more of his absolutely stunning work.

{REAL WEDDING} LOVE AT ILLINOIS’ CONCORDE BANQUETS…

i mean money confetti though….

“George and Sophia wanted to plan a classic, elegant wedding with pops of color and a modern flair, while still holding true to tradition and proving that timeless elegance never goes out of style. From the way the colorful floral arrangements complemented the tones in the church to the stunning uplighting and the vibrant dessert table, every aspect of their celebration was energetic and full of life. “
