Friday Favorite: Smile Lounge Photobooth


We wanted to dedicate this week's post to our friends at the Smile Lounge!  Their photobooths are sleek and modern in design and twice the fun of your average booth.  Guests love the variety of unique props to the cool vibe inside the makes them want to smile from ear to ear!  After the super stellar photo opp, guests have the ease of using the ipad station to send the photostrip to their email or post it on Facebook.   This saves friends from fighting over who gets to keep the copy...everyone leaves happy!  Spread the happiness and book them for your next event...go to and like them on Facebook too : )

Sleek.Modern.Fun...need we say more?

Even celebrities like The Doctors love the Smile Lounge

And of course our team can't resist the Smile Lounge fun!

Friday Favorite: Destination Wedding at Ritz-Carlton Puerto Rico


I love doing destination weddings while teaming up with my former hotel company, The Ritz-Carlton!  To bring my business of family and business of weddings for 8 days in Puerto Rico this summer was a fabulous memory.  Thanks to David & Jamie for the pleasure and honor to escort you!

Check out my latest video shot & edited by the talented John Goolsby from Godfather Films, which includes some lovely words from the couple!

My fabulous friend and designer Kirstie Kelly who started Disney Weddings Bridal Collection has now revolutionized the wedding gown buying process with the BORROW ME program.  Yes you read right...borrow a bridal gown and if you love it then it's yours to buy  If not, you just need to return it in two's that simple!  Try on dresses in the comfort of your home and make a party out of it...what's not to love?
I am so proud of her and her team who continue to impress me with their wedding dress designs, essential everyday and knit line.  Kirstie Kelly designs can be found in Nordstrom (fabulous 100% cotton button down for women), Costco (spectacular every day knit line) and in her amazing showroom located in El Segundo (next to Manhattan Beach and LAX...easy access to VIP’s flying into LA)
So if you're a bride or know one pass on this post!

Happy Friday!
