Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge Tie The Knot!

After an incredibly short amount of planning time, Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge tied the knot at an opulent ceremony on the Grand Lawn of the St. Regis Monarch Beach. She wore an amazing Mark Zunino gown for the romantic ceremony before enjoying the best party of her life in the Monarch Ballroom. I immensely enjoyed working with Tamra and Eddie and getting to know the woman off-camera. It is evident that they make each other very happy and we wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.

Although no official photographs have been released, I did find this paparazzi pic of Tamra and Eddie during the ceremony holding her amazing bridal cuff I designed with Justin Howard of Flaming Flower Productions that featured hanging crystals and Phalaenopsis Orchid stems. This was a modern accent to her gorgeous gown without impeding the view of all of its intricate beadwork.

It may have been just another beautiful Saturday afternoon for a celebrity wedding but Shanae boldly wed in her own skin in a black Vera Wang gown. White is such a traditional wedding statement and I know that it takes a secure fashionista to defy the trends and declare her ‘I Do’ on her own terms.

Sometimes the circumstances of my life or the pace of my achievements can get me down a bit. I long for the realization of so many dreams and aspirations – many of which I was certain I would have accomplished by now. It is during these times that I return to my prayer journal to remind myself of all of the many answered prayers over my lifetime – giving humble thanks for thus far. More so, reflecting back reminds me that my pace may not equal that of some of our greatest icons but I am on my own journey, my own path enriching lives one at a time. Therefore, I decided to share a few of my biggest and proudest transformations!

Ready To Restore with DV!

As women, we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. Tasked with wearing many hats that often include mother, friend, wife, sister, business-woman, supporter, cheerleader, big sister, nanny and sometimes father can be incredibly overwhelming. I for one have rode the entrepreneurial wave since I was in high school and I have celebrated during the good times and prayed my way through the bad times. Throughout my journey I’ve developed tools of how I can restore my soul, my faith in myself and my belief that my best days are before me. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to my friend Michelle Hargrove and an amazing program that she has created called Restoration Weekend!
