What happens when you have a bride from LA and a groom from London? Well obviously they are going to get married at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, CA. Such a great way to bring two families from two different countries together. Lauren and Sam had a very intimate pop-up wedding in a gorgeous suite at the hotel with only their closest family and friends! There wasn't a dry eye in the room when the ceremony concluded. Between the laughing, the crying, and the crying from laughing I couldn't help but shed a tear or two myself! There wasn't a face in the room that wasn't glowing with excitement! When it was all said and done as I went to say my goodbyes, there were no handshakes, just hugs! The amount of love and joy filled the room, and left me smiling ear to ear!
Man oh man does Daddy have his hands full with this little one! Little Grace is definitely gonna be a heart-breaker when she's older! Good thing she takes after her Mommy Jenna, right Drew? HA! It's been nothing short of amazing watching this little girl grow, it seems like just yesterday she was a little bump in her Mommy's belly! Fast forward the year and here she is on her first birthday posing like a little model, walking around a chair playing hide and seek with the camera. As luck would have it Grandma and Grandpa were in town from Michigan to celebrate her 1st birthday, so we couldn't not take a picture of the whole family. As we reached the part of the shoot for the cake SMASH, that's where things got a little sticky. Grace wanted nothing to do with cake, but we still managed to get some really cute fun shots as she did everything in her power to avoid contact and keep herself clean! Mommy and Daddy tried putting her hands it, putting frosting on her nose, and at one point I think the entire cake was being put in her face. Nothing seemed to work, Grace just didn't like the cake. Then as we were wrapping up she dove right into her cake, just kidding she fell face first into her cake accidentally, giving us the money shot you see here! In case you can't tell, she definitely didn't like that!
