She let her gaze wander away from the moon, taking in the night sky. She was tentative at first, worried that looking at the sky would once again overwhelm her, but she soon discovered that there was something comforting about seeing the same galaxy she’d always known. The same stars she’d been looking at all her life, seen through a new lens.

– Marissa Meyer, Cress

ransom and i got married several months ago in an intimate ceremony, but recently had a larger reception for more family and friends, and it was a blast! as we’re both writers, it seemed fitting to have the event at one of our favorite bookstores: the last bookstore in downtown LA. we’ve had a lot of requests for photos, so i thought i’d drop a few here. hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

:::for the especially curious:::

my bouquet: was made from the pages of ransom’s novel (miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children).

our photographers: brandon + katrina of brandon wong photography.

venue: the last bookstore in downtown los angeles.

catering: the extremely fabulous heirloomla.

rentals: furniture from found rentals, dishes from dishwish!

the band: one of our favorite local indie bands, the gallery.

hugs and books!

xx

The romance-heavy plotlines don’t bother me as much as the protagonist worshiping every hot guy who comes her way. He’s perfect. He’s gorgeous. He’s every good adjective ever. Like… if you’re going to write a romance, write a story about two unique interesting people trying to figure each other out. That would be excellent. Don’t just moon over some biceps for 200 pages and then loudly declare your love for them before a passionate make out before you save the world. That’s not a love story. :/ Bluh.

And yes, some of my books are falling apart well-loved
