Paulina&Juan: Married.

Mother Nature was most definitely in favor of Paulina and Juan's marriage. And why wouldn't she be, when they have been dating for 10 YEARS??? I still can't get over it. Well, Mother Nature lined it up just perfect for this day...the sun was beaming gloriously but there was just enough breeze to keep it tolerable. And the weather stayed lovely all the way through to their adorable backyard reception that started right as the sun was about to set. Ahhh...perfection. One of my favorite parts of the day was watching Paulina as she took deep breaths and tried to steady her trembling hands, as she was spending her final moments as an un-married woman. I smiled to myself thinking this is probably the same way she might have looked back in high school when she first started dating Juan. The feelings were all still there...butterflies in the tummy, anxiousness, and love. But now in a completely new form..the same feelings she felt before, but intensified by a bond of 10 years together.

Here's a few favorites...

I LOVED how their son stood beside his parents and hept his arm around them as they were up at the altar for their ceremony. So sweet :)

I think she's checkin' him out ;)

DANG. Get it girrrrrl...

There truly was not a dry eye to be found during Paulina's very emotional dance with her grand father.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Merlos, I am so happy for you!

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?????? Geeze. I feel like I have jumped on a space shuttle and left Planet Blog. And I am NOT proud of it. In the whirlwind that has been my life these past few weeks, blogging has somehow managed to slip through the cracks. And believe me....I have tons of awesome blog posts planned for you all, including the last 2 weddings I shot and some other personal things/projects. And they are coming SOON, my good people :)
So if you're wondering where on earth I've been the answer is simple: I'm vending at a bridal expo on the 26th. And being my first one, it is taking just about EVERY ounce of me to be ready for it in time! For those of you who are getting married and are local to the Laguna Hills area, you should definitely come check out the show and stop by to visit with me! I would love it! CLICK HERE for more info :) I have a few free VIP passes left if you want to get in for free!! Email me at
Other than the expo, I have been meeting with my 2011 brides and booking tons of fabulous weddings for next year. I really CANNOT. CONTAIN. MY. EXCITEMENT. I love each of these new couples so dearly and 2011 is shaping up to be amazing!!
Alsoooo....I have been working on some exciting stuff behind the scenes involving some new things with my brand and top secret business...and maybe just, MAYBE, something to do with oh...i don't know...a new website and blog? Hmmmm...I guess only time will tell ;) Keep posted to see everything come together.
And that concludes this ultra-exciting Kristen Booth news report(definitely kidding). If you took the time to read all of this gibberish,'re pretty special. We should be best friends. No, but seriously if you took the time to read this, you're pretty dedicated. Let me know and I'll bake you some cookies! ;)

Here's a little teaser from Paulina&Juan's wedding a couple of weekends ago...

Dustin&Marybeth: Wedding.

Oh yes fall wedding season definitely swept me more ways than one. I was completely swept away by all of the amazing couples, gorgeous gowns, fun details and all of the other things tied into a wedding day. But I've also found myself swept away and into my office by all of the post-production work following these weddings. Hence my blog post delays!!!! But I catching up.
Dustin and Marybeth have been such a pleasure to work with since day one. I knew their wedding would be an easy-going, fun, beautiful day. And guess what??? I was right! The day was completely smooth sailing and I hope it was everything they dreamed it would be! I can't wait to see everything the future brings for these two!

Here are a few favorites :)

Marybeth you looked like a total princess. Dustin is a lucky man....

If I didn't love limos already, I SUUUUUURE do now :)))
