A beautiful day. . .

I am deep in revisions on STARS OVER SUNSET BOULEVARD┬áthis week and next, so I am going to be a little scarce on the blog. But I’ve got some lovely photos today┬áthat will let you know what I was up to all last week – putting the finishing touches on our daughter’s wedding! Stephanie is our first-born and only daughter and we couldn’t be happier with the soulmate she has chosen to spend the rest of her life with. Enjoy, and I will see you on the other side of this book!


Stephanie and Joshua were married at a lovely venue and one of the oldest wineries in California.


My lovely niece Miranda captured this photo. I love it!


Stephanie and me!


Saturday was beautiful here in San Diego. An 80-degree day gave way to a lovely evening with a gorgeous full moon.


Steph told each of her bridesmaids to choose their own dress using a color palette she gave them as a guide. Smart idea! Now each gal has a dress they love and can wear again.


The arch was decorated by a good friend and the baby’s breath peeking out of each aisle chair was lovingly placed there by Steph’s best friend’s mom.


If you know me well, you know I adore succulents. Imagine how happy I was when Stephanie, who also loves them, wanted them for the table escorts. My mom, husband Bob and I transplanted all of them in these little terracotta pots. That was also a fun day!


Their first dance…

    Beautiful!! And the bride is gorgeous as well! Bountiful blessings to everyone, it looks like it was a lovely wedding.
