Grace Ormonde

I'm not dead. There were a couple of days over the holidays when I was so sick I wanted to be, and one when I thought I was going to die but I'm here... alive and kicking.

Sorry for the blog drought.

A few months ago Grace Ormonde contacted me asking if I had any detail pictures I wanted to submit to them for editorial. I happened to be having lunch with my good friend, wedding-coordinator-extraordinaire, Karli Tanner that day and I mentioned that they had contacted me. I guess that got Karli's wheels turning and in about a week she put together the most insane display of table designs I've ever seen. I shot about 15 tables that day designed by Karli and a few other of LA's top designers and the next week sent the images into Grace.

I heard from the photo editor a few times regarding the images but they would never say whether the images were actually going to make the magazine... only that, "there is a good chance they will be in there".

When we arrived home from San Antonio from the holidays there was a package sitting on our porch. I wasn't expecting anything so I had no idea what it was. I opened it up to see that it was 2 advance copies of the new Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine. I flipped through it to find that not only did they make the magazine but it was the opening spread of the tabletop section. A full 2 page spread.

Pretty exciting. I have a LOT of stuff to blog so I promise not to take so long between posts. In fact one of my resolutions is to blog 15 times a month. So here's 1 down... 14 to go.

Crongrats again my friend. If you keep getting published in mags then I will slowly stop posting "congrats" emails and I will grow bored with your success...
