Wedding at Hatley Castle
One of my dearest and longtime friends got married at Hatley Castle in Canada, to a Canadian! It seems crazy to think that the wedding that was planned long ago finally came and went, and we are so glad we were able to attend her castle wedding in Victoria, Canada. The location of the movies X-Men and DeadPool 2.
High Tea at the Empress in Victoria
Yes that's a beehive fascinator on my head! My mom and I made my fascinator when I was back home in Nor Cal for my friend Rachel's wedding I photographed.

We are always looking for unique things to do in Vegas when we go every early summer for our girl's getaway and we haven't run out of things to discover yet - it's Vegas after all. With a quick Google search on fun things to do in Vegas or must see in Vegas, The Neon Museum popped up and it was so different! I saw the gorgeous colors, showed the girls and they were all in!
Balancing Life + Work
I have many things I want to share but sometimes I'm not sure if it warrants a dedicated blog post or just a few bullet points.

Starting the middle of March through now has been blowing by which is terrifying considering ...
