Autumn Brides, part 1

Shana and Rick were married on September 4th, at the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. Her dress, a beautiful Amsale gown
with an asymmetrical sweetheart neckline looked stunning on her. Looks like Rick thought so,too!

Roxana and Joe tied the nautical knot on a boat in Marina del Rey
on September 3. They got ready at the Jamaica Bay Inn. It was terribly windy so I chose one of the indoor shots of me putting her veil on. photo: Drew Brashler

Jenna and Rob were married October 22 at Maggiano's located at the Grove in West Hollywood. She had a great group of bridesmaids, with a special nod to her sister, Melissa, who took care of everything (including hiring me!).

On July 30, Caroline and Josh got married at La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes Estates.
Before meeting Caroline I was contacted by her best friend, Maren, who wrote,
"I'm contacting you on behalf of my friend Caroline who's getting married
and hates makeup...." Okay. Well, we ended up having a great time and
she didn't hate me, so that was good. It turns out, she just didn't want to
look overdone so when she found out that she didn't have to worry about
that, the air was cleared.

Shira and Duvid got married on August 14th in Cherry Valley at the
Highland Springs Resort. Shira had spent many summers there so the resort held some great memories for her and her family.

Denise and Bill celebrated their nuptials on August 25th at the historic Castle Green in Pasadena. Denise is originally from Naples, Italy where my father's family was from so we had lots to talk about.
