I love the connections you make in Los Angeles sometimes. A few years ago Paula and I were both assistants at a shoot (she does incredible hair styling), we met, we laughed, we hugged, we became friends. Now we run our own shoots and are bad ass and awesome (she will agree to this).
Then Paula emailed me about getting married.
Paula and Damien had one plan. Get married at a beach in Oahu. Thats it. They didn't know what beach. They didn't even know what time. But they didn't need to.
We drove down the highways of Oahu and they found a beach they loved.
They pulled over.
and got married.
Thats it. Just Paula's best friend. A beach. The beautiful sky. and their love for each other.
*well and me too
A lot of my amazing couples spend months to planning for their big wedding day. And thats awesome. Sometimes you have couples like Paula and Damien who don't need to do that. And that is awesome as well. It doesn't matter what you do. Its your wedding. You do you boo.
and I loved that Paula and Damien did what they wanted. Just them. At a beach.
I was so absolutely honored to be part of it. Thank you Paula and Damien for having me. It was truly truly special (AND it happened on my Birthday!)
All my love to you too. And all my dance moves as well.
