These past two months have been such fun, exciting, and busy months!  As I mentioned before, two of our very close friends got married at the beginning of October and we are so incredibly happy for them!

I met Vivian in the dorms at UCI and we ended up being roommates for 3 years, while Lloyd’s search for a place to live eventually led to him moving in with Jeremy.  I wish we could say we played a part in the two of them meeting, but for two years we all went to the same school, Jeremy and I were dating, Viv was my roommate, Lloyd was Jeremy’s roommate…and they never met!

Thankfully they did eventually meet, we all went on a memorable/infamous spring break trip together….and the rest is history!

Their wedding day was beyond beautiful!  They put so much thought into every detail of their wedding and really tried to personalize everything.  And despite some really crazy, unexpected things happening, Viv remained so cool & calm about it all.  I was so honored to be one of her bridesmaids that day!  Of course, the photographer in me couldn’t help but take a few photos throughout the day, so here’s a glimpse into our morning of getting ready at the Viceroy in Santa Monica.

I took some photos at their beautiful reception, too, and I’ll share those in my next post!

Jen Wang did make-up for the bridesmaids, while Nicole DeAnne worked on the bride.  They both did such an amazing job!

Viv & Lloyd exchanged gifts that morning.  Yes, that is a Cartier bag you see!

Viv gave us the coolest bridesmaids gifts ever….two-finger rings from Heist Jewelry!  And don’t you love how Viv wrapped it?

Viv got one for herself, too!
