A SMALL WINTER WEDDING

After nearly a decade of knowing one another, my hubby and I were married on December 27th, 2014.  I didn’t want a big wedding (or any wedding at all for that matter) but my family was eager to celebrate the occasion, so we settled for a compromise.  We were married on the grounds at Pomona College, where my husband teaches chemistry.  Less than twenty people attended, which was perfect for me, as the event required minimal planning.  Given So Cal’s mild climate, we were able to have an outdoor ceremony in December.  I liked the idea of a garden wedding and crisp winter colors, so really it was perfect.  I didn’t hire a pro photographer, but my friend (and assistant) Jessica was on hand to snap some pics.  In this case, a picture speaks volumes, so here are some of my faves.

And for anyone wondering (since a lot of people already asked)…my dress is by LA designer Sue Wong and my lipstick is Too Faced Melted in Ruby.  So glad to share these pics with all of you!  Thanks for reading!  Xo
