Honestly, I can’t believe it took me this long to share this incredible wedding with you from July 2016. The couple is near and dear to my heart, as I’ve known Jess (the bride) for over 10 years! Both the couple are visionaries and creatives. Todd is an amazing photographer from Chicago and obviously moved out here for Jess; but the weather, food and the people ain’t so bad either huh? And Jess is a videographer, director, and producer and the hot/cool teacher at a private school in Rancho Santa Fe that all the boys pretty much have a crush on. I’m sure of it.
Jess and Todd met while working on a documentary film together, traveling the Camino de Santiago following a man who has stage IV cancer and who dreamt of doing this walk. In the midst of producing this film, Jess and Todd got to know each other and obviously fell in love….and well…the rest is history and here’s the proof!
I’ve taken a little break from blogging my weddings from last year, but I’m back at it now! As most of you know, I just welcomed my second son right before Christmas and now that we are all starting to adjust to being a family of 4, I am ready to dive into my 2017 weddings! So far in this winter, it’s been pretty rainy but I’ve been loving it. I have a fire started, my oldest has his line of garbage trucks in a row and my littlest is napping like a champ, which give me some time to just day dream of the amazing weddings I was able to be apart of last year. I couldn’t be more blessed to be doing something that I love, all the while being at home with my children. Being a full time stay at home mom while running a small business full time comes with its challenges (i.e.: I answer calls in my closet/bathroom to keep my clients from hearing my screaming kids or Daniel Tiger/Thomas the Train that is blasting in the background) but it’s all so worth it because I get to meet amazing couples like Kirby and Katie!
