I recently hosted a cocktail party and open house at my Beverly Hills studio. It was so much fun I had to share some of the photos taken by two of my associates, Holly Steen and Santiago Valencia. The studio was packed with all sorts of really wonderful people: friends, family, and some amazing wedding and event specialists. Among the group were some of my exceptionally talented friends: Graphic Designer Cindi Garabedian, Videographer of BLUECAT International Marc Dahm, Luxury Mobile Beauty Service Provider of Fiore Beauty Jaimi Brooks, DJ Barry Lamster, Noir Artists Brittany Jones and Mitchell Rouse, Umberto’s Celebrity Manicurist Meline, Floral Designer of Anita’s Garden Anita Frump, Lighting Designer of Amp’d Entertainment Arteen Kharrat who was also representing KM Floral Design, Print Artist Sarah LaVoie, Wedding Planner of Memorable Occasions Alice Goetschel and Alexis Campanella, Illustrator Paul Cohen, and Photographers Peter Garr, Darren Yasukochi from BMW, Debra Morrison, Alexandra Marie Pfeiffer Tumbas, Shannon Lee, Karen Rosenbaum, Holly Steen and Santiago Valencia as mentioned. There were many more who are wonderful supporters from past and current students, past and future brides and grooms, as well as my beloved long time friends and family. I was and still am overjoyed at those who attended my party. Here is to a wonderful Summer and a prosperous and joy-filled Fall for everyone!
