collaboration carnival

some people say im antisocial. i counter with i generally just dont like people. semantics i guess.  so, i try to let my girl handle the networking stuff. as an extension of the networking event she planned and hosted, was the faux wedding shoot.  i wasnt heavily involved but i did enjoy working with the various vendors involved that included whitney & dustin of darling dexter and oh! darling, maria from lela ny, patty from something different party rentals, and jackie from merciny. of course, the the shoot was amazing! check out these pics from the event.

Wow, I totally love this collaboration carnival. Everything is super cute in this carnival. I loved the photos a lot. We have also started preparations for our carnival themed wedding and need some decent budget friendly ideas. Also have to book one of the local wedding venues in LA so it will be good if you could provide any suggestions.
