‘Tis the Season…for a mountain trip.

It was such a treat to be able to explore Lake Arrowhead this past weekend with Emone and Stanly ūüôā One of the things that I love about our job is that we get to travel…even when we weren’t planning to go to the mountains this holiday season for fun, we got to go for work… AWWWWWESOME!!! It was such a gorgeous day; crisp air, fall leaves, and tall Christmas trees galore. We even got to bring my puppy, Berry, ¬†along to be in some of the shots…so adorable!!!! ¬†Melanie, Andrew, and I had a blast with you cuties ūüôā

All the guests received these awesome sunglasses for the summer event, as well as these programs that were probably used as fans. Boy was it toasty out here LOL.

While in Israel, Jacqueline bought these Hebrew pendants, meant to be saved for her wedding day. She gave them to her mother and told her to save them for her future husband. “I belong to my beloved and my beloved belongs to me.” Jackie and Danny later exchanged them during their wedding ceremony.screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-1-51-15-pm

Fun in the sun with some sunglasses and slippers! I’m sure every bride and bridesmaid wished they could be as comfortable as these girls haha!screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-1-38-49-pm

A surprised Danny seeing his beautiful bride for the very first time in her dress. But that definitely did not take away from the priceless look he got when he saw her walking down the aisle.jd_first-look-and-ceremony-synced-sequence-still005jd_first-look-and-ceremony-synced-sequence-still004
