{fashion} Kinsley James

A few months ago I was visiting my friend Tiff in Northern CA, who just so happens to be getting married this month (eek!) & we happened upon the most GORGEOUS bridal boutique in Walnut Creek.  I seriously fell in love with everything I laid my eyes on...  The shop is minimalist & sleek...the perfect backdrop to showcase feminine, whimsical gowns.  Meet Kinsley James.  

Here are two of my favorite...

{showered} Tiff's Tea Party

We got to shower my friend Tiff in true English style!  Anyone who knows her knows she loves all things British.  We bridesmaids put together a pretty fantastic afternoon, if I do say so myself!  I'm an avid lover of all things a meal composed of scones, jam, Devonshire cream, fruit tarts, chocolate covered strawberries, pastries & tea...that's my kind of Heaven! I'm pretty sure I ate my weight in butter that worth it!  ;)

 Loved our fascinators!  Made by Bridesmaid Ali.

The beautiful Bride to Be

 Those 92 days went by so fast!

And of course there was the obligatory stop at La Boulange for coffee & croissants (their chocolate/hazelnut is TO DIE FOR).  Such a great weekend celebrating our Bride to Be!   

Next up...the wedding!!!

{engaged} Tiff + Erick

While I love all my couples (honestly! I'm super blessed with amazing clients)...this one is especially close to my heart.  Tiff & I met our first day of college at Biola, a warm August day in 2001.  We lived on the same floor & I wandered over to her room to borrow tools & her dad's manpower for something (who can remember?  it was 12 years ago!  yikes!).  We were fast friends & enjoyed 4 years of Disneyland, dancing, shopping, Starbucks & beach days.  Oh, and we went to class occasionally.  Life took us in different directions, as it often does, but we remained close & I loved those moments when we could catch up over a latte.  

Fast forward to this month...holy crap, Tiff!  In 18 DAYS you will be Mrs. Erick Lewis.  I am honored to share these moments with you as a bridesmaid/coordinator and can't wait for many more as you guys start your life together.  See you soon my friend!

(enjoy their vibrant engagement shots & look for photos of her shower to come)
