Although I’m not getting married in the near future, I’ve always loved looking at wedding magazines. Grace Ormonde, helloooooo? It’s the best. So when I met and became friends with bridal couture designer, Angelo Lambrou, I was pretty excited.

California Dreaming Polyvore

I did something really out of character yesterday and booked a flight to San Diego… for next week! My spontaneity astounds.
