the up side of today…
I went to another party without my pocket digital camera again, so you’ll have to view the world the way my cell phone does, I’m afraid. Tonight Ceremony Magazine threw another fun event on the rooftop of the Bel Age Hotel in West Hollywood.
I particularly liked the ice sea horse:
Jules Bianchi and her usual party co-hort, Tiffany Nainkin:
After being trapped in my office all day, its nice to hang out with other people who know exactly where I’m coming from. There were a LOT of amazing wedding vendors at the party, but I think most of them were photographers. Case in point, check out the crowd who went to Canter’s afterward – the list reads like the who’s who of LA Wedding Photographers:
From left to right, Joe Barnet, Joe Photo, Karen French, Yoshi Morimoto, Dina Douglass, Mike Colon, Victor Sizemore, Harmony Walton (token non-photographer and owner of the wonderful Bridal Bar), Mirta Barnet, Josh Bobrobe, Robert Evans, and of course yours truly, Jules Bianchi behind the camera.
And later, Stuart Townsley (with Mike and I giving his cool glasses a try)
althea and david.
Today’s wedding was a crazy twelve hour event, but the time just flew by because we were having so much fun. Althea and David met as next door neighbors when they were teenagers, so they have been together for a long long time. Because of this, their wedding party was no less than 20 of their closest friends, and that doesn’t include the three adorable flower girls!
Althea and David had TWO ceremonies today – a full Catholic mass, and a lovely outdoor Jewish ceremony in the garden of the private residence where the reception was held.
The entire event was pulled off without a hitch by the suberb talents of Tracy Serreno of RSVP Event & Wedding Design.
David is super cool in my book because not only was he excited when I pulled out my Holga and loved the lensbaby shots I showed him, but he had just bought himself the Canon 20D to take on his honeymoon! Here are a some (but certainly not all) of my favorites:
On the rooftop of the Bel Age Hotel, Los Angeles Magazine threw a “Spa Party” tonight. Massages, manicures, eyebrows… it was all available along with champagne and Borba water! I searched the house today and finally found my pocket digital camera so I was able to properly document our evening. (no more cell phone photos for the blog!) I went with my new party buddy, Tiffany Nainkin. Another industry event, another reason to dress up! I love this photo Tiffany took of me fussing with my jacket!
We couldn’t BELIEVE the generous gift bags they gave us at the end of the night! Seriously, they were the BEST gift bags I’ve ever received from one of these industry parties. Crazy good stuff in there:
