Stonehouse Villa Wedding

This Stonehouse Villa Wedding

is certain to lift your spirits!

Before I share this Stonehouse villa Wedding, I have some pondering to share…

I wonder if when all of this is over, the name Corona will be on the top ten names for babies of 2021? Names manifest and who wouldn’t want to raise a human that will stop the world in it’s tracks, that strikes fear in all who hears their name, that controls the world economy without even trying?

Just trying to find some levity in this insane situation we find ourselves in. The entire 2020 year is cancelled, ALREADY. In 2019, I called 2020 my “hindsight year.” I would learn from my mistakes and strive hard to rectify them all this year. Whelp, looks like the whole world is joining me! We have discovered, in less than a month, exactly what our daily lives mean to us. You never knew how little you were prepared until you’re in the moment going, “oh shit, where’s the beef?” scanning the meat aisle, wishing you have saved some in your freezer. I know for me, this virus has taught me that I need to value saving money more. It also has shown how much I need to diversify my income. Being reliant on events seemed so secure until three weeks ago. People will always get married! they said. No one ever imagined this. How could we?

I feel so fortunate that I was able to photograph Julia and Ted’s Stonehouse Villa Wedding right before the world halted on it’s axis. I loved this wedding. This team was incredible, the venue was stunning and my clients were so in love, they could soften the hearts of any cynic. I even danced a little at their wedding, which I don’t do very often. It was nice to spend about ten hours just forgetting the chaos and enjoying doing what I love, every moment carefully savored. My favorite part of the day was the quiet moments Julia had with her grandfather. He is a real nice dude, even taking a “shot” for a shot! The whole day held surprises and complete joy. I’m grateful these two had their dream day when they did.

Here’s hoping the world picks up speed again, although I AM enjoying having the time to catch up and recharge. My masters classes for this semester still have a week left in them, so the extra time isn’t too bad. Gotta make the silver linings where we can. Stay healthy, my friends.

p.s. this list of vendors was AMAZING. Honestly, if you hire them all, you’ll have an incredible time. Serranos is easily my favorite Tex-Mex caterer. And DJ Brian Weber is probably one of the top three DJs in the city. HIGHLY recommend!
