we just got back from a trip to los angeles, visiting friends and exploring the area. our main purpose for the trip was to attend the wedding of a very dear old friend of mine from back in the UO college days. we we're lucky enough to live together here in NY a few years ago before she moved back to LA. she's one of my most favorite people..

and isn't she lovely? (i was lucky that they had scarves to hand out to guests- who knew it was so chilly in LA?); the most beautiful chuppah i've ever seen...
yummy dessert table complete with doggie bags; big love ♥
it was Veda's first wedding (it was her first everything really...) she slept through a good portion of it, which is a shame because nobody got to see her sweet little dress!

we spent the rest of the trip visiting our dear friends who also recently moved back to LA from brooklyn. they took us to the huntington botanical gardens in san marino. they were incredible!!
my favorite was the desert garden- i love succulants!
this bamboo grove was so serene and pretty...
our friends live in silver lake- which is too charming for words. i loved all the little bungalow style houses and desert plants in the landscaping. i could totally live there...

we went to celebrate our friend's birthday at her sister's house in santa monica. they made an incredible brunch followed by the most amazing birthday cake i have ever seen (4 layers in each piece)! we picnicked out on the front lawn. it was just perfect!
