Shawna and John had a sweet wedding at their new home! They hired us in January and basically spent the entire year getting the backyard ready for the wedding celebration. They kicked off the day with a ceremony at the beautiful Wayfarer’s Chapel in Palos Verdes and then we all headed back to their huge new property in Lomita. Adi and I loved spending the day with the couple’s warm and happy families. Congrats, you two! You totally rocked it~!

Another blog post made easy by an amazing note from a most amazing couple…(and one of the most fun bridal parties of the year!)

“Dear Cadi (like brangelina or tomkat) cat + adi = cadi
I just want to say many thanks for making us laugh and feel at ease, thank you for controlling the chaos that goes on during a wedding, thank you for the witty banter, thank you for holding my lipstick, thank you for keeping the energy up and thank you most of all for sharing our wedding day with us! I can’t wait to see all the fun photos, too bad we didn’t have a video camera to capture the stench someone left for us in the Langham elevator or the shock on our faces when we found the condom shooting in Old Town! That was something special…ahh…the memories! We had so much fun with you both! Love you guys.”
Love you, too!! Our new tag line? Next Exit brings you farts and condoms on your wedding day and memories that last a lifetime. What do you think!?

I emailed Stefanie about a week ago to let her know that her blog post was ready and to send me over a list of her vendors, but I still haven’t heard back! Wonder if she’s on her honeymoon…sipping wine in Paris, or margaritas in Mexico or pina coladas in Hawaii… (you can tell where my mind is right now!)
I will update the blog post as soon as I get something from her, but in the meantime, her are a few of her gorgeous images from her delightful wedding at La Palapa in Belmont Shores, Long Beach. Isn’t she stunning? And, Shane, you are pretty stunning yourself. 😉

……..She’s back!!!!
