Jessica and Janelle’s Debutante

Oh I had sooo much fun! This is Janelle (in the gorgeous teal dress), Jessica (in the fabulous pink dress) and their awesome 36 best friends! I was so excited to be a part of their 18th birthday party! These girls are so sweet, smart and so much fun to spend time with!
And did I mention beautiful:

The whole room was teal and pink:
Each one of the 18 girls lit a candle for Jessica and Janelle and then each one of the boys gave them a lily. All of their toasts were so special! Some were really funny and others were really touching. I also learned a little more about the girls from their friends toasts which made me like them even more.
After their toasts each of the girls pulled a string which had a wrapped charm at the end of it. So fun!
Happy Birthday!

These cupcakes were the best I’ve ever had! Sorry Sprinkles. They were made by the chef at Arizona Grand Resort.

Jessica and her dad:

Crazy dancing fun:

Thanks, girls! I hope you are having a fun summer. Good luck at U of A and stay in touch!

Asia’s Bridal Shower

Jennifer called me about a month ago asking me to photograph a bridal shower she would be hosting for her best friend, Asia. I thought that was a great idea but little did I know what a fabulous party I was about to document. Here’s Jennifer with Asia – aren’t they gorgeous?!! I thought Jennifer looked like one of the Kardashian girls:
Jennifer thought about everything and there were so many adorable details
Asia’s favorite type of food is Mexican food so Jennifer had a classy Mexican theme and super yummy Mexican food. I loved the little cactus center pieces:


The girls were all so cute and fashionable. LOVED all their super sassy shoes: Asia was obviously overtaken with gratitude and here are some happy tears to prove it:
And here she is looking gorgeous:

All of their friends were so beautiful and so much fun:

And if you ask me, the best part of the evening – Sprinkles cupcake! Sadly, I had to leave before dessert but I’m still thinking about how amazing they probably tasted.

Jennifer, it was so nice to meet you, your family and friends. I hope we get to see each other again soon. And if I ever need to host a party, can I hire you?
Thank you for inviting me to be a part of such an awesome celebration :)
