Venice Beach, CA | Photo Diary

Just got back from a quick getaway to Venice Beach, California.  Candis (our bride-t0-be) and her bridesmaids planned a beautiful beach house bachelorette party for a few days.  Most people would probably head to Vegas for a bachelorette party instead of away, but relaxing on the beach one month before her destination wedding in Thailand couldn’t have been a more perfect idea.  Road trips aren’t so bad with a some snacks, Mariah Carey, and the promise of Los Angeles weather in the near future.

I pulled a “Justin Bobby,” homegirl wore boots to the beach….

In-N-Out to ease the pain of going back to the desert.  If I didn’t think I would get killed, I would share with you all the rap battles and dance offs I filmed.  Just know, they’re gooood.
