This is why I do what I do...

"Carrie & Helen,
This is the most random thank you ever, but I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you again for making my wedding day and the planning process so awesome (even though it was almost one year ago!). I have several friends getting married all over the country this year and I've been fielding so many questions and queries about planning, decisions, traditions, etc. They are all so stressed out and going crazy, it makes me feel so relieved that I was able to find you 2 amazing women that made everything such a breeze. These girls have had 1 to 2 years to plan their weddings, but we pulled off mine in 4 months with minimal stress and maximum fun as a result.  I think I'm more stressed helping them than I was planning my day, so I wanted to take a minute to breathe and thank you both again. I am eternally grateful for your powers of planning.
Whenever anyone I know is getting married in this area you are both the first people I recommend because you made Andrew & I's day so meaningful, special and exactly what we wanted.
Hope you both are doing well (Congrats Carrie on the baby!) and that business is booming!!!
All the best and lots of love,
Emma (Lee) Seitz
Married at Malibu West May 24, 2010"
With all there is with planning your wedding the most important thing for us, is that you have the best time, and enjoy each moment. 
This incredible day goes by so fast, and cherishing it as well honoring your marriage is the most important thing.
LOVE you Emma & Andrew, and Congratulations on almost 1 year!
See their wedding {here}

Is was a classic summer Malibu day with one of the best sunsets of the year!
This is one of out 'Package' weddings with a simple yet elegant feel.

I am excited to introduce Mr. & Mrs. Nicholas Reese! AKA Dr. Nick & Dr. April. I had such a wonderful time working with April on planning her wedding to Nick. The couple were illuminated with happiness throughout the day. With personal touches from the bride of photos of married guests, to cross word puzzles about the couples, No detail was left untouched. Amazing Photography to come from Jake of Mike Larsen Photography, but for now here is a sneak peak of some pictures I shot.
