I Love L.A. (We Love It!)

Yikes! It has been such a long time since I've posted anything! There was all that build-up leading to the Oscars and then I didn't even write about the show. So, here's a quick synopsis:

1) Thank god Debbie Matenopoulos got nowhere near the red carpet! She practically ruined the SAG Awards. Yuck! Although, when I double-checked the spelling of her last name, I discovered that her real first name is Despina. That's kinda cool. However, due to the overwhelming of negative points against her, the unique first name does nothing to put her in my good graces.
2) What was Daniel Day-Lewis' wife (Rebecca Miller, daughter of playwright Arthur Miller) wearing?
3) I heart Daniel Day-Lewis and his ebullient acceptance speech.
4) I heart George Clooney.
5) I don't heart George Clooney's girlfriend.
6) Gary Busey is clearly insane and how on earth did he get an invite to the Oscars?!
7) Jessica Alba hates being pregnant and it shows. How on earth did SHE get an invite to the Oscars?!
8) People kept slipping on the same spot on the stage during the show - clearly over-waxed.
9) Overall, great acceptance speeches.
10) Jon Stewart is funny.
11) Weird omissions from the montages - no Whoopi, no Steve Martin, no Brad Renfro.
12) The show clocked in at about three and a half hours. I have definitely watched broadcasts that lasted more than four, so I was thrilled.
13) What's up with changing the order of the awards? Totally threw me off.
14) I'm glad the song from Once won Best Song.
15) Fun fact: none of the people who won acting awards are American.
16) Surprises: Tilda Swinton's win for Michael Clayton, Marion Cotillard's win for La Vie en Rose.
17) Javier Bardem might have a slightly busted looking face, but the man is sexy.
18) What is Sean Penn doing with Petra Nemcova?
19) Miley Cyrus creeps me out.
20) I heart George Clooney.

Okay, I think that about covers it. Exciting things are going on over here these days. Lots of weddings booked for this season and I am so excited! I've got weddings that take me all over New England, which is super-cool. I don't want to post without including a photo, so here are some photos from a recent wedding. I love musicians at work!

These guys are the International String Trio and they play jazz, classical, world, and klezmer music. They were great to listen to, and, of course, great to photograph!
