Our 10th Wedding Anniversary

10 years ago today, Michael and I got married by Elvis in Vegas. The first photos in the slideshow were taken by me at our hotel in Vegas. The photos my "bridal party" took of me didn't come out b/c somebody forgot to plug in the flash! Ha! All the more reason to hire a REAL wedding photographer! Too bad, b/c I looked fantastic: my hair was teased and Randy put baby's breath in it (ha!) and i wore snakeskin spandex pants, that delaminated over the course of the night, which made for an early evening. We dressed all cheasy 70s Elvis'y. Then we came home and had a huge party at our place on Mountain in Laguna. Mike Colon was the photographer. Instead of having a wedding dress, my friend and fabulous floral designer Jennie Harden designed two "wedding headdresses" for us. I made all our guests stand in front of this pink linen fabric curtain, and take pictures wearing them. We had a bar serving festive fruity drinks in coconut cups, a steel drum band, and inside, the slideshow of our wedding was playing on a loop. It was a pretty entertaining video b/c Michael bawled thru the entire ceremony! Maybe by next year, I'll turn that vhs tape into a dvd and post, but for now, here's a slideshow of the photos from our album:

new headshots for lisi - laguna beach headshot photographer

This hot mama/author has a new book series coming out and she was going to tell me all about it at our photo shoot...but i realized later that it never came up! funny b/c we talked nonstop the whole time - several subjects going at once - 100 miles an hour! so fun! what does that tell you about this woman?! The most unassuming, down to earth famous person you'll ever meet. I'll ever meet. and isn't her skin just "dewey"?! it's not fair. she chose the 4th photo for the author photo, but i loved this concrete wall and wanted to put some graffiti-like text against it.

check out the fabulous background in these photos! it's crystal cove beach in laguna beach, it was a cloudy day, i lucked out. we were going to start off our shoot w/ a mojito at the beachcomber http://www.thebeachcombercafe.com/_crystalcove/index.aspx , but life got in the way and there was no time.

lisi hates having her picture taken, would you ever have guessed?
