The book that consumed the vast majority of her life for the better part of a year, that is more beautiful, more perfect than she ever could have dreamed. With a cover image by...

San Ysidro Ranch Wedding by Jose Villa Photography + Joy de Vivre Part II

It's no secret that I'm a full on Jose Villa groupie. Like of the Penny Lane Status. It's fine. I'm not embarrassed. He's genius and I'm officially starting his first legit fan club. Case in point?

San Ysidro Ranch Wedding by Jose Villa Photography + Joy de Vivre Part I

I'm a girl's girl. The kind that will always find comfort in the color pink. That will forever sigh when I see a bundle of peonies.

And whose fingers can't ever find the right words to introduce one of his stunning weddings.  So imagine my nerdiness when you layer on a bride that is glowing from the inside out, a groom that is all dreaminess and a...
