I am completely obsessed with the stunning images from Jordan and Jenni’s beautiful wedding. The extremely talented Morgaine from Pure Light Studio says, “Jenni and Jordan had the kind of vintage, diy (do it yourself), handmade, homespun, heartfelt, rural wedding that I often dream of. There was so much love and sweetness and joy and fun that my day was a blur of shooting happiness. There was loads of  great style from the guys’ bow ties, suspenders and linen pants to the handmade paper flowers for the bouquet. AND we went to the old-school candy store for sodas… delightful! Jenni and Jordan, you made such a perfectly splendid wedding… ”

Looking for vintage items? Tired of driving all over town and finding nothing? Worry no more, because you can find almost anything you are looking for, and much much more, at the Long Beach Antique Market. This swap meet caters to vintage and antique sellers of all kinds, from clothing to collectables… it’s all there. Started in 1982 it has grown to over 800 sellers that span out over 20 acres { you could literally be there for over 5 hours} and you can find them there every 3rd Sunday of the month. My dad and I spent a few hours on Sunday rummaging around and soaking up the hot sun…

My handsome husband Mike, followed us around and shot a few pics… we had a great morning and I found some very rare {turquoise} pyrex bowls!
