CONGRATULATIONS TO ANDREA SMITH & JOSHUA ZINK

“GOING TO THE CHAPEL AND THEY’RE GONNA GET MARRIED!

So, my good friend Andrea Smith, who I met while living in Nashville, TN, announced her engagement today via Facebook! I just want to say how happy I am for her, because I know the countless blind dates, terrible parties, and frogs she had to go through to find her prince. I know, because I was there! Joshua, I know I have not gotten to meet you yet, but I am so thankful Andi has fallen in love with you and you with her as I know how happy you have made her over the years.  When Andrea came to visit me in Los Angeles, and we set out for our last day’s adventure (surfing), she had mentioned a special young man she had started to date.  I am not saying I am a psychic or anything, but Andi just had that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about her now fiance, Joshua.  I had a feeling he would be “the one.”

 

To the single ladies out there, it’s all good.  Good things come in time, and a lifetime is a very very longtime so do not settle and do not rush into a relationship heading towards marriage just so you can “be married.”  I know L.A. puts a lot of pressure on us women to be skinny, young, and beautiful forever and the expectations can sometimes be even harder as you get “older,” and by “older” I mean anything over 25, but I promise, just like Andrea and Joshua, you too will find our prince charming! So, let’s raise a glass to the happy couple!!!

WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!

Love you Andi!

Diamonds and A Girl’s Best Friends

Oddly enough, all of my closest friends are engaged.  And while I have always heard that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, I would trade 100 diamonds for just one best friend any day, although my BFF’s might not be so willing to give their “square cut’s” up-especially now!   In support of all five of my closest girl and guy friends currently engaged, I have decided to post an all out wedding bliss post filled with cool links, pictures, ideas, sites, and top planners in hopes of possibly answering some of their questions and maybe some of yours.  Weddings are really tough and expensive these days. (Just something I am learning)  I just don’t think it should have to be such a daunting and overwhelming task. So cheers and let’s make this a little bit more fun!

 

Location! Location! Location! It is not all about the dress when you live in L.A.!

I am finding that the biggest challenge for my friends is booking the venue. Whether it is an outdoor wedding you want or just a venue that will allow you to treat your guests to a luxurious and intimate party for under $80,000.00 – it is no easy task! So, here are some options.

All About The Details

Wedding planners can prove to be invaluable and truly “worth their weight in gold” at the end of the day. However, I must preface this by saying the right wedding planner is key- otherwise, you are better off having your special day completely unorganized and totally crazy but the way you want it, even if it is a little bit crazy! Here are a few I would recommend.
