Best Friends, Birthdays and Bridal Showers

Thursday, November 18, 2010

Hello lovely readers! I know that it has been a while since my last post but I have so much goodness coming up and promise I have a good excuse for delaying much of my blogging. The biggest one of all? My big sister is getting married next week! eeks!! She is my best friend and it is with excitement and a tinge of sadness that we approach the big day because after the wedding she will be moving to San Francisco - far, far away from me. Okay, I know it is not that far away, but this is my sister and we have never lived more than an hour away from each other. We actually grew up sharing a room and many times a bed. Don't even get me started on how we are going to separate our wardrobes for her move... we have yet to try to tackle that issue. I think both of us are hoping it will solve itself! ;)

Here are two of my fave pictures of us when we were little. Don't you like how she is eating the huge snicker's bar all by herself! And then riding the trike as I walk alongside her? ;)

And the three of us together. I can't believe that in a little over a week, we will all be married women! These two women are seriously my best friends, my role models and my biggest fans. I am who I am today because of their love, support and friendship. Nothing is stronger than the bond between us Park sisters!! :)

It has been so much fun planning for her wedding together, but also a pretty emotional process. I think it has helped me to better relate to my brides and their families. Not that it has been that long since I was a bride myself, but I am always reminded that every moment in your planning process is so special and a precious memory in the making. It makes me so grateful for my job and the relationships I have made in this line of "work" :) I love that a wedding is not just about a bride and groom but also their families and friends and I get to share in those amazing moments. There is nothing more rewarding than bonding with a bride and groom along with their family members. Some family members of a recent bride and groom even left sweet reviews for me and I couldn't be more grateful!

I am also a bit emotional because my birthday is this week and I am turning the big 3-0! I didn't think it would really affect me, but it kind of hit me this week. I don't have anything big planned - but have already started the week off with some shave snow from a few lovely ladies in the industry, so things are definitely looking up!!  ;) I will keep you all posted on how I feel after this Sunday!

Finally, my sister's bridal shower was featured on the every-so-lovely site, Ever Ours. Lydia, the blogger behind all the beauty, was kind enough to showcase the hard work that we put into my sister's bridal shower. Since her name is Alice, we had a loose Alice in Wonderland concpet that you can read all about here! This was another fun project that Eddie from Up Imagery and I were able to work on together and another reason why I feel so lucky to be in this industry. I can't wait for more opportunities to work together!! :) I will be writing a more comprehensive post about the event and the sweet vendors involved, along with the amazing venue - a true gem in the heart of Tustin! But for now, I  just wanted to share a few of my favorite images from the day.
