- You may have been wondering where have Jen and Cory been? Well here is a sneak peak (many sneak peaks) of blog posts to come.
This first is a sneak of why we've been MIA recently. Here is our view from our hotel while vacationing in Aruba.
- Upon our return less than a week ago, The Memory Journalists have photographed two weddings and one engagement session. I spent a lot of time with Kelly this last weekend. (thanks Kel)
Here is Caitlin and Sean - they were married on May 29th at St. Francis and their reception was amazing! Can't wait to share those details.
- Teresa and Jasmine shot an engagement session that same night. This is Jillian and Morgan - aren't they super cute?!
- And lastly, Kelly and I shot Hiroko and Dan's wedding yesterday in Woodland at a private residence. Their details too are amazing - ending the night in traditional Kimono dress attire.

- Two weeks ago Lance and the team cruised on by downtown Sacramento with the Amgen Tour. Luckily I live close to the course and had the chance to experience this great event! I had no idea how amazing it was and how many people were interested in cycling. Although I am not an avid biker...Well I never even learned how to ride a bike and still have no idea how to balance, but nonetheless I absolutely enjoyed myself and the great sport of cycling! Here are a couple of pictures I snapped as they zoomed through the finish line at the Capital!

- You all have met Jen Shevock on our blog before. She is our good friend, Jen's personal trainer and Folsom's own Pilates Chik. Jen Shevock actually introduced me to Jen Starr and put in the good word for me to get this fabulous job. Thanks again, Jen!
But I stray from the point of this post. Last Saturday, Jen had a birthday party at her gorgeous home for her 35th Birthday. We had a blast! The food and wine were sensational and the company even better.
Jen actually let Heather and I help out a little when we got there. This is rare for Jen. Her east coast style is very polished and she likes her guests to just come and enjoy themselves. Well, Heather and I consider ourselves family so we insisted on lending a hand. The party went off without a hitch. Here are a few shots of the evening. Forgive the point and shoot. I forgot the real camera.
All the girls....Jasmine was out of town and Jen Starr was in Aruba. You were missed ladies!
- A close up of Jen's fabulous outfit. She looked amazing as always!
- Wine anyone? I'm always so happy when I'm opening some good red wine.
- Heather looked super fashion forward as usual. Love the flower in her hair. Her lipstick matched!
- It was a little chilly but the firepit was great. We hung close to it all evening. Even Sponge was hanging out. You can see his dog legs in this picture. So cute!
- Happy Birthday, Jen! It was a great party. We love you!

- A couple of weekends ago, a bunch of friends hopped on a limo bus and headed to Napa for Jamine's birthday. It was a glorious day of the best weather imaginable and some yummy wine tasting.
We started at Chandon....
- goofin' on the mushrooms!
- Next we stopped at V Sattui. The old V Sattui where you can get some of the best deli food on the planet. We drank, we ate, we built a human pyramid!
- Our last stop was at Rombauer for some of our favorite Zinfandel. Check out those legs!
- It was truly a perfect day, great wine, great food and great friends. Happy Birthday, Jazzy!

- A little over a week ago I had the pleasure of attending the San Francisco NACE meeting. The topic for this gorgeous event was "The Diversity of Indian Weddings". Boy was I the sure in my Indian element there! This event took place at The Peacock room in the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel in Nob Hill. What a fabulous location! I walked into a room filled with gorgeous linens and deep romantic colors....my favorite!
The program started with an authentic Indian drummer playing the "dhol" as the bride and groom (Duncan and Beverly) walked in with all their guests following. It was so much fun reenacting a real Indian wedding! We dug into yummy samosas and hariyali murg tikka as appetizers catered byRanjan Dey's New Delhi Restaurant as the traditional Indian dancers entertained us with a bhangra dance routine. The night ended with a very informative presentation that helped us all understand Indian Weddings in more depth.
All in all this NACE was probably one of my favorites! Who says you can't learn and have fun at the same time?
- How gorgeous were the decorations?
- Check out my pretty henna =)
