I met Tara and Aaron through the adorable couple Angela and Edgar. Tara was one of Angela's bridesmaids and Angela was able to return the favor during this intimate wedding at the Cultural Center.

I love how Tara and Aaron's guests knew how to bring the party on during the wedding ceremony and Tara's reaction to their surprise. The entire day felt like a celebration of fabulous people.

Before I go onto Tara and Aaron's photos, here's a photo of Angela and Edgar.  They make me happy.  :)

Now onto the happily wedded couple...congrats!

Nice work Laurie...agreed about the ring shot!! I don't think I've seen anything like it for a ring shot before (which is amazing!). I am really liking that wide angle shot of them leaving though...you really captured a great scene. :)

Fake mustaches at weddings are the BEST.

Also, way to think of something original for the ring shot. That's not easy to do.

A couple weeks ago, I traveled to Houston, Texas, to visit my college girlfriends. (It was a very busy weekend, so sorry to those who I couldn't visit while down there.) My girlfriend's cat, Lars, stole all of our hearts.

Lars, the ladies' man

For those of you who think cats are "eh." this post may bore you to tears, but Lars is more dog than cat and more human than dog.

Lars' original name was Diamond due to his black marking on his schnoz, but boy, does he LOVE to eat. His appetite is the size of Texas. (da da dah bum...thank you, I'll be here all night.) Therefore my girlfriend's husband decided Lardball was a better fit. Not wishing "Lardball" on any of her enemies, especially this lil' romeo, my friend shortened it to a more sophisticated and fitting "Lars."

Thankfully, the cat doesn't seem to have any identity issues and is still as charming as ever. At night, he would come to each friend's bed for a quickie of, er, petting and then skedaddle to the next friend's bed for another session. Such a player!!

Lars, I already miss you.
