A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of covering Claire Pettibone’s 20th Anniversary and grand opening of her new flagship salon in Beverly Hills, CA.  It was a fun night mingling with old and new friends.  I’ve known Claire and her husband/biz partner Guy Toley for many years now.  I first met them on a plane coming from New York and just happened to be sitting next to them.  They are great people and so down to earth.  I really enjoyed shooting this event for them.  Congrats Claire and Guy on 20 years of success in marriage and in business!  It was an honor to shoot your event!

Special shout out to my team Brandon Aquino, Daniel Cruz, JC Guzman, & Stewart Uy for all the help shooting that night!  #LTFL

BEVERLY HILLS, CA: Claire Pettibone had much to celebrate on June 11, 2014. On this perfect Summer evening she and husband, Guy Toley, welcomed family, friends and celebrity fans to the Claire Pettibone Flagship Salon in Beverly Hills to celebrate their 20th Wedding Anniversary and the 20th Anniversary of the renown Claire Pettibone bridal label.

Among the celebrity fans that came to show their support was, Rumer Willis, who proved that her sister is not the only one in the family to command attention! Rumer wore a showstopping white crochet and mesh cocktail dress, that, while was not as risqué as her sister, Scout Willis’ ‘free the nipple’ statement in New York last week, was nothing short of a provocative fashion statement (that we loved)!

Also in attendance was, Angela Kinsey, who was as charming and lovable as she looks in a photo hugged up with celebrity wedding photographer, Mike Colón, who shot the weddings of the huge talent including Usher and Timbaland.

Like the success of their matrimony, Claire’s business has grown exponentially over the last 20 years; she not only has she become one of the top bridal designers, but is now forging on the path to designing for the red-carpet, dressing celebrities like Carrie Underwood. Could Rumor Willis and Angela Kinsey be added to the list of Claire’s designs for red-carpet gowns this season? We can only hope and can’t wait to see what Claire Pettibone brings us next!
