On this lovely Friday, I am in my office. Wrapping up a few things for this week because come the afternoon....I’m going to be feeling just like my lovely bride Kira! Carefree + relaxed. 💆🏼♂️💆My hubby and I have a date and it’s beginning with massages and spa treatment @blissfulretreat!!!! 💃🏼Happy Friday guyssssss
I’m going to take the time to shoutout to @thepadrehotel. My creative heart ❤️ was ecstatic the day I saw this beautiful building renovated in our city 🌃. I was happy to hear that someone invested to keep the bones and history but revived a space that needed some tlc! Padre Hotel gives me big city vibes. I love everything about it! Ladies....if you’re looking for a big city vibe wedding in the heart of Bakersfield I highly recommend The Padre! Their staff is amazing and willing to invest time and effort to creating a very modern and cool wedding for you! Padre Hotel + Team...I’m inspired by you today!
🙍🏽♂️This is probably the face of most men today. . 🥀Oh my poor husband...For the first couple of years of marriage, days like this only seemed to lead to an argument of why he didn’t have something special waiting for me. . 💃🏼I’ve learned two valuable lessons after 12 yrs of being married. 1️⃣If you want something done right you gotta do it yourself 😜(like scheduling a couples’ spa @blissfulretreat). 2️⃣This day doesn’t define our love. . Enjoy the little things ladies and give your man some grace. ❤️HAPPY VDAY to all the love birds out there!
For me, being swept off my feet means an intimate conversation over coffee ☕️. What is one simple thing that the love of your life does that “sweeps you off your feet?!” Let’s celebrate that ....⬇️
🤦🏽♀️Last night was a night like several nights in my career.. . 📝The type of night where I give my husband a long list of why I CAN’T! . 👂🏼Like always he so patiently listens and then responds with something along the lines of “Rubi, you can do this. You were made for this.” . 💛💡And then my heart sort of just says...YES, yes I was! . ⚫️I can’t always do everything perfect even though I try and it truly affects me when anything important lacks my attention. But every single day, I wake up and try my best!
Oh Jesus, you are and will forever be my greatest delight. ❤️ Because of You I’ve seen this world so differently. Because of You I live a life that is peaceful and content. I understand that You have better plans and that in the end everything works itself out. Thank you for also delighting in me. #psalm37v4
They walked a few blocks from their hotel room @mamashelterla to their wedding venue @maderakitchenla and I wasn’t mad about it at all! I love going into street paparazzi mode 📸 with my brides! Heyyyyyy 💃🏼
CREATIVE BLOCKS! They are the worst! . 🔟Yrs running a creative business has taught me the vicious cycle of creative block. I’ve learned what to do and what NOT to do when they come. . 🚂CREATIVE TRAIN is the complete opposite. My family already knows what I mean when I say I’m on a “creative train.” Pretty much...stay out, stay alive! 😬😜 When I’m finally on a creative train, I ride that baby until the gas runs out! . 🕰Gas ran out at 2AM for me last night (or I should say, this morning). I wrote 3 upcoming blogs including “3 ways to overcome creative block.” I finished another beautiful album design. And I started creating this beautiful idea for my future 👰🏼 brides! . 🎨 My fellow creatives...do you get creative block? How do you navigate through it?
Yesterday I gave you a first look inside this beautiful album. I spent a few years navigating through albums trying to find THE ONE and this baby is definitely it. This distressed leather album is included in Wedding package #3 ❤️. Seeing my photographs and my couples’ stories come to life in this album is unlike anything else. Did you see the inside on my insta stories yesterday?
