Kicking off this week is the second edition of Frieze Los Angeles (February 17-20), which debuted in 2019 and was the last major art fair to take place before the in-person events of the pandemic does not come to an abrupt end. Joining the must-see New York and London editions, as well as the Seoul launch in September, LA will host 100 exhibitors of contemporary art at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. But the wealth of satellite design shows popping up in the city is worth looking at. Check out our top picks below and stay tuned for our preview of the must-see artwork from the fair proper coming later this week.

Blumenfield projects: Synthesized ceramic (from February 12 to March 1)

The first in a new series of clay-focused pop-ups, this group show spotlights 16 artists (Cody Hoyt, Kiyoshi Kaneshiro, Gabriella Picone) whose adventurous embrace of ceramics helps express their deepest identities. depth while reinterpreting traditional patterns. Overall, the works are a reminder of the limitless potential of ceramics by blurring the lines between craftsmanship, design and contemporary art.


Raina Lee: homeworld at the Stroll Garden (February 12 to April 2)

The local ceramist’s hand-crafted vases, which are inspired by ancient traditions and ancient Chinese reproductions from childhood, often bear “eerie” glazes. Lee experiments with dozens of glazes to learn how brilliant colors, otherworldly textures, and alluring imperfections can tap into visceral feelings. For this exhibition, Lee’s first solo exhibition, she launches larger-scale works with eye-catching textures that embody her fascination with “materials and the way they often don’t get along.”


From vases and planters to furniture, vessels have always been a form of poetic function. This notion is on full display in Sized’s new space in Hollywood, called Sized.Studio, which will host more than 100 vessels containing objects, flowers, and even people and space. Fai Khadra, for example, drilled a crater into the concrete floor of the studio’s second level, while Sogetsu LA manager Ravi GuneWardena and deputy manager Tory J. Lowitz show off an ikebana sculpture specific to the studio. site that breathes their personality into the 700 years. Practice of Japanese floral orchestration.


Tiwa Select x Farago: Daily rituals (February 17-22)

To celebrate the reopening of photographer Max Farago’s eponymous gallery downtown, he’s teaming up with tastemaker Alex Tieghi-Walker, founder of local gallery and online platform Tiwa Select. Presiding in a former theater building is an array of works across media from artists – Jim McDowell, Mary Ann Pettway and Peter Shire among them – from atypical backgrounds who have spent decades perfecting their craft.


The Perfect Future: Momentary Break (February 17 to March 18)

Quiet contemplation is the theme of this ambitious group show at Casa Perfect Los Angeles, a historic 1971 residence in a scenic Beverly Hills neighborhood now occupied by the traveling design gallery. Each object speaks to the material practice of its creator, from the ethereal Halo light sculptures of rising star Bradley L. Bowers to the Brutalist-inspired bas-relief of local sculptor Olivia Cognet imbued with femininity.

When it launched its first edition in June 2021, the Los Angeles design world was in turmoil. “It looks like something really special for the Los Angeles design scene,” a prominent fellow editor told me and advised me to stop in town. Curated by creative director Alexander May, SIZED is an art and design platform that brings together creative communities through exhibitions in its new permanent space in Hollywood. Today, the studio announced its roster of participating artists for the second iteration, titled “SIZED: VESSELS,” which opens February 16.

The show will feature over 200 containers from all manner of international design legends like Gaetano Pesce and Los Angeles favorites like Kelly Wearstler, Cactus Store and Commune Design, and will also include a site-specific Ikebana installation by the director of SŌGETSU Los Angeles , Ravi GuneWardena and Deputy Director Tory J. Lowitz, who opens the purpose of the ships to the ritual. In collaboration with the new Parisian platform Concept, which will open this month, ten works will be broadcast in the form of NFT to be enjoyed also in the digital space. Before its launch, Cultivated reveals the list of artists and spoke with May about the origin of the studio, her new love affair with floral art and creating a global exhibition in the event of a pandemic.

Elizabeth Fazzare: How was SIZED designed? And why did you choose Los Angeles as your location?

Alexander May: SIZED was born in reference to our connection with design within the home, partly due to the pandemic. I have a background as a curator and with this renewed focus on the objects we live with, I wanted to find a way to bring artists and designers together in dialogue with each other – opening a conversation about what we see as the design today.

I used to live in Los Angeles, but came back here during the Milan pandemic and felt there was room for a collective experience in the city, weaving local and international talent together. It was humbling to see the embrace of the community. I never dreamed of opening a permanent home for SIZED so quickly, and here we are.

EF: Why did you choose to focus this edition of SIZED on Ikebana and vessels? Have you noticed a specific surge of interest in Japanese art?

A M: This exhibit was inspired by a variety of conversations I had with close friends around Ikebana. I’ve been doing flower arranging myself since I was a kid. My mother spent a lot of time in Japan in her early twenties – her family lived there for 10 years – so she practiced Ikebana at home when I was young. My fascination is old. When I researched the Sōgetsu school further, I was really drawn to the work of Sōfū Teshigahara in the 1930s and 1940s. Specifically, the way he broke tradition within the classical structures of the ‘Ikebana while retaining incredible references to its form and history within Japanese culture. The ship can be a very neutral subject, but I love that its fundamentality can be interpreted in so many ways.

EF: Compared to the first edition last year, have the challenges of organizing an international exhibition changed?

A M: Some challenges always remain the same; dealing with shipping is never easy. But I’ve found that coming out of the isolation of this pandemic, there’s more connectivity between designers and artists than ever before. This edition of SIZED is much more global than last year. I think because VESSELS as a project is more restricted in its concept, it has widened the scope of collaborators.

EF: What inspires you currently?

A M: I’m really enjoying the experience of exploring Los Angeles and connecting with SIZED’s new permanent space here. I re-engage with the white box and this has led me to focus on the materiality of the works we present here. I can’t get enough aluminum right now. The exploration of the medium in this show inspires me. There are works in aluminum, steel, clay, marble, plaster, concrete, glass, bronze, rubber, fiber, resin, silicone and, of course, plants.

Why this Valentine’s Day will be a “perfect storm” for flower arrangements https://twillastinytreasures.com/why-this-valentines-day-will-be-a-perfect-storm-for-flower-arrangements/ Sat, 05 Feb 2022 01:23:52 +0000 https://twillastinytreasures.com/why-this-valentines-day-will-be-a-perfect-storm-for-flower-arrangements/ Valentine’s Day Flower Delivery Responds to Pandemic-Era Economic Challenges Los Angeles, CA.

Valentine’s Day Flower Delivery Responds to Pandemic-Era Economic Challenges

Los Angeles, CA. (CNN) — Most Americans have already encountered pandemic-related supply chain issues, whether it’s grocery shopping or waiting longer for a package. But for products where timing is everything, the crunch is particularly intense.

Kairin Caifa looked at this year’s Valentine’s Day flower trade where emotions are running high and you might want to place your orders now.

Six blocks with dozens of wholesale flower vendors, business in Los Angeles’ flower district really blossoms in February. So much so that the California Flower Mall, one of the big markets in the area, will remain open 24 hours a day from Super Bowl Sunday until the end of Valentine’s Day.

“It’s a good feeling to buy flowers for someone you love. So it all really helps despite the, the, the savings,” said Mark Chatoff, owner and president, California Flower Mall.

Chatoff says its 35 suppliers face the same thorny economic issues as any other retailer, as growers and suppliers count until a second Valentine’s Day in the age of the pandemic.

“We are facing increased costs, logistics, transportation – which is part of logistics – shortages,” Chatoff said.

Gersain Bustos brings to the Los Angeles market flowers from local merchants, but also items like roses from South Africa. He says the disruptions from these air shipments are unlike anything he’s seen in his 30 years in the floral industry.

“An airline cancels, then whoever’s behind has the pressure to pick up what’s behind,” said Gersain Bustos, owner of Growers Direct Flowers.

And the high-demand holiday falls on a Monday this year, which puts pressure, especially on florists in charge of final delivery.

“These are 2021 issues that carry over into 2022, but it gets tougher on Valentine’s Day,” said Kate Penn, CEO of the Society of American Florists.

Ken Denaburg’s family has owned and operated York Flowers in Washington DC for 80 years, “This is what happens behind the scenes.”

He says he’ll have what he needs this Valentine’s Day thanks to lessons learned throughout the pandemic.

“We had to change design styles, where we can’t get certain flowers and supplies. We’ve been hands-on and made changes so we’re not trying to force something that hasn’t worked,” Denaburg said.

While florists like Denaburg believe supply will meet demand, Society of American Florists CEO Kate Penn says flexibility and creativity can go into the mix.

“It’s just that sometimes if you’re looking for something very specific, you might not be able to get it. And the sooner you can order, the better,” Penn said.

Those big bouquets of red roses take a bigger effort in every way for this year’s big day.

A Guide to Navigating Chicago’s Privatized Recycling System — Free Spirit Media https://twillastinytreasures.com/a-guide-to-navigating-chicagos-privatized-recycling-system-free-spirit-media/ Thu, 27 Jan 2022 21:06:23 +0000 https://twillastinytreasures.com/a-guide-to-navigating-chicagos-privatized-recycling-system-free-spirit-media/ For Chicagoans, the recycling process is often shrouded in mystery.

For Chicagoans, the recycling process is often shrouded in mystery. COVID-19 has caused an overall increase in personal waste, but recycling rates in Chicago have been declining for years. Urban legends have spread about how some recycling bins go straight to landfills, and the search for answers raises even more questions about what can and cannot be safely recycled.

Is this a problem specific to our city? And what can we do to make recycling easier for our residents? The Real Chi decided to dig a little deeper into these topics and uncover some of the truth in the murky recycling business.

  1. If a container of recycled goods contains non-recyclable materials, chances are the entire bin will be thrown away.

    1. You may have heard this rumor before, and it can be confirmed to be mostly true. When multiple non-recycled materials appear in a recycling container, that container can be considered “contaminated” and the whole thing discarded (i.e. sent to landfill).

  2. If you want to make sure your recycled products don’t end up in landfill, you can take them to a factory yourself

  3. You need to wash or clean your recycled materials

    • Having trash or debris still attached to recycled items — such as food stuck inside cans — can disqualify an entire recycling container as contaminated. The only notable exception to this are peanut butter jars, which may still contain product. Waste Management, Chicago’s recycling service, reports that about half of their materials are contaminated.

  4. It’s not always clear what you can and can’t recycle

    • Recycling rules often change as we become more aware of what objects cause problems in systems, which is often difficult for the average recycler to predict. There are local online resources to tell you whether an item should be thrown in the blue or black bin, and we’ve put some of the most common offenders on this list for good measure.

Recyclable in Chicago: glass, junk mail, aluminum foil

Not recyclable in Chicago: pizza boxes, straws, coffee cups, plastic bags

  1. The government does not treat our recycled waste – private companies do

    • Part of the reason our recycling systems seem so hazy is that they’re run by private companies that do the transportation for the city. The two main ones in Chicago are Sims Metal Management and Waste Management, which last year was accused by Ald. Raymond Lopez (15th arrondissement) from holding an unfair monopoly on the local recycling market after their recent acquisition of a small business.

  2. Our recycling system does not meet the standards of other major US cities

    • Recycling effectiveness is often measured by the percentage of households that participate, which is around 8% in Chicago. That’s less than half of New York’s 18% and Los Angeles’ 20%. Reasons for low turnout may include lack of confidence in the recycling system and confusion about eligible materials. Additionally, recycling activists said Chicago was much less transparent about its waste data than other cities.

  3. Chicago lacks a formal recycling and overall sustainability watchdog

    • Eight years ago, then mayor Rahm Emanuel notoriously thrown the city’s environmental department. No governing body has since been formed to take its place, although campaigners are proposing its resurrection or the introduction of a sustainability ministry. Chicago is the only one of the 10 major US cities that does not have such a governing body.

Knowing the rules of recycling can make the practice less complicated, but the journey does not end there. Recycling is an ongoing effort that requires our daily involvement, and the results are worth it. Now that you know the rules, educate your friends and family to try to keep the cycle going.

SStudents in Professor Zachary Vernon’s graphic design course at California State University in Los Angeles are used to creating visual campaigns for fictitious clients.

But earlier this month, those clients were in the room, listening intently as the undergraduates presented their latest projects of the semester: PSA anti-hate campaigns that promote the inclusion and reporting of hate crimes for the LA campaign for everyone in the city of Los Angeles.

“We launched LA for All to fight hate in our city and advocate for diversity, inclusion and belonging in LA,” said Capri Maddox, executive director of the city’s Civil + Human Rights and Equity department and alumnus of Cal State LA.

“Getting Cal State LA students involved in this work is a natural fit. These young people are the future of LA, and their vision of an inclusive and empowered Los Angeles is what we are fighting for at the LA Department of Civil Rights. We are very honored to have this partnership with Cal State LA.

Janet Dial, vice president for academic advancement and executive director of the Cal State LA Foundation, called the initiative “exciting.”

“Seeing our faculty and students offering their perspective and their artwork to advance this message is inspiring,” added Dial. “Capri Maddox is an extraordinary ambassador for both the city and our university. We are grateful for his leadership.

LA for All, launched in May by the Civil + Human Rights and Equity department, is an anti-hate campaign that runs in 18 languages ​​and in more than 4,000 advertising spaces in Greater Los Angeles. Its bright colors and messages like “LA is for everyone” and “I Belong. You belong. We belong. ”Have adorned buses, trains, parks, stadiums and more, making it the city government’s largest anti-hate PSA campaign.

This campaign is growing with the outlook of Cal State LA undergraduates, many of whom grew up nearby amid a five-year increase in reported hate crimes in Los Angeles, including a 20% jump last year. .

Students in Vernon’s Concept Development course were tasked with creating a compelling poster that communicates their personal take on one of the LA For All campaign’s main messages. Students have produced work ranging from illustration and photography to abstract art and typographic designs.

The works included street art, portraits of diverse families and communities, and bold statements of solidarity and inclusion in English and Spanish. One poster showed LA County as if it were all made up of flowers, surrounded by a sea of ​​layered colors. Another simply said “Protege Nuestro Hogar” (Protect our house) in front of a bright sun.

“Good design speaks to us on a fundamentally human level,” said Vernon. “There is nothing more human than bonding people. That was the goal of this project, and the students really took it to heart.

Cal State LA, ranked # 1 in the United States for upward mobility, is home to a diverse student body. The majority of its 27,000 students are not white, and many see the need for more messages that resist hate and division in Los Angeles.

“As we see what’s going on around us, it’s important to look out for each other and stay together,” said student Valeria Olvera. “I wanted to create an image that captures the simplicity and beauty of caring for each other in our community. “

Her classmate Heo Kim said that having a sense of belonging or togetherness allows people to reflect on their oneness with their community or country.

“Since LA is a place where diverse races exist, I want to emphasize a strong sense of togetherness and tell people that LA can belong to anyone and anyone can belong to LA,” said Kim.

In our increasingly sustainable world, I am always on the lookout for things, namely those at the intersection of form that evokes joy and everyday function, that are worth saving, not just for one season, but for years to come. Better yet, a lifetime. This is how I found myself instantly and obsessively drawn to the new luxury house brand. 1986, which offers handcrafted marble candles with an intoxicating scent that are both timeless and striking design pieces. Did I mention they are rechargeable?

Zahra Ayub, the Los Angeles-based designer behind the collection, was inspired to create 1986 after reading Illuminated prayer, a book on Sufism. “I came across this quote from Rumi that I really liked: ‘Let yourself be silently attracted by the strange attraction of what you really love’, so I decided to pay attention to the things that attracted me. », She explains. “I started to notice that most of my time was spent doing the house, decorating and collecting candles. Combining both her passion for design – Ayub studied fashion in her native London and is the former public relations manager of British fashion house Vivienne Westwood – and local craftsmanship from her home country. family, Pakistan (a major producer and exporter of high quality marble), she decided to “connect all the little pieces of my life journey and create something unique,” she said Vogue.

In the end, Ayub felt a consciously designed, rechargeable call piece of art marble molds for scented candles, a category that could certainly be more environmentally friendly, from wax formulations to proper disposal and recycling. It was exciting both from a design and durability standpoint. “I wanted to design a multifunctional candle that can be collected and stored forever and that doesn’t create waste,” says Ayub. “I also wanted to use organic coconut wax and provide a clean, safe burn, which was not common in the market. I knew this because I was a candle lover.

DUBAI: Adriana Lima never fails to breathe glamor when she steps out on the red carpet, and this weekend’s “Dior Designer of Dreams” show in Doha was no different.

For the occasion, the Brazilian model was photographed wearing an elegant creation from the Middle East.

The former Victoria’s Secret model has chosen a model from the Fall 2021 collection by Lebanese designer Georges Chakra.

The black design featured a red satin lining, a structural neckline and a high slit, with ruffled skirt details.

She accessorized the look with Christian Louboutin pumps and dangling earrings from jewelry brand Hanut Singh.

The black design featured a red satin lining, a structural neckline and a high slit, with ruffled skirt details. Provided

“In the collection this was my favorite look and on Adriana she is absolutely lovely,” Chakra told Arab News. “The dress is structured and ultra-modern, and with the deep red contrasting with the black, it gives a sculptural illusion of vibrant life beneath the dark armored surface.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the explosion of August 4, 2020 in the Beirut port area, Chakra did not unveil its Fall 2021 couture collection during the official Haute Couture week of the Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion this year, but presented instead in a digital format.

Like its previous collections, the fall 2021 couture offer was an amalgamation of expert tailoring, volume, ruffles, traces of lamé and rich fabrics such as lace, silk velvet, organza de silk and gazar.

Chakra is one of the best couture designers in Lebanon. Her dresses have graced Parisian catwalks and Hollywood red carpets, while top talent in the entertainment industry, including Gabrielle Union, Jennifer Lopez and Letitia Wright, regularly don her designs.

Her designs have even been featured in movies and TV shows like “Gossip Girl” – Blake Lively’s character Serena van der Woodsen got married in a dramatic strapless tulle Chakra-designed dress in the finale of the series.

For her part, Lima, 40, achieved an unmistakable range of striking looks by Arab design talents just last week.

The black tulle cape dress with petal neckline cutouts and gold embellished details from Zuhair Murad’s Resort 2022 collection immediately comes to mind.

Lima certainly has a fondness for Arab designers and has been photographed wearing looks from the archives of regional designers on numerous occasions, most notably at the 2019 UNICEF Summer Gala in Italy, where she opted for a strapless creation. with iridescent sequins by Rami Kadi. In October, she walked the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of “Last Night In Soho” in a sculptural gown from the spring 2022 line by Lebanese label Azzi & Osta.

About a month before the pandemic, a friend contacted your shop owner and buyer Telsha Anderson-Boone, proclaiming she had the “perfect person” for her. After giving the green light to her friend, Telsha invited Justin Boone, who works as an assistant costume designer for film and television as well as a stylist, to accompany her to the opening of your store in March 2020. COVID-19, and we were encouraged to get to know each other [remotely] during the lockdown, ”Telsha recalls. “Three months in quarantine later, we were ready to spend some real face-to-face time together, and after several negative COVID tests as well as months of quarantine, we spent a month together in my New York apartment. Before we knew it, we were in love!

Holidays, birthdays, store openings, and other monumental events were gone in the blink of an eye, and Justin was finally drawn to a Montana-based costume project for a six-month period. “Fortunately, our time during the pandemic has taught us both to communicate when there is a distance between us,” Telsha said. “And we haven’t skipped a beat during that time.”

“I had just finished working on a long project in Montana, and was not allowed to travel after I arrived due to early uncertainties and guidelines with COVID-19,” Justin said. “Telsha and I would talk every day and we managed to show her around twice, but two weekend visits in four months is not enough to spend time with the person you are in love with. Telsha and I spoke often about our love, what it meant to both of us, and when we’d be ready to take the next step.

Justin worked with Hoorsenbuhs, a Los Angeles-based jewelry brand, to create a personalized ring for Telsha. “I worked with my business friend, Gilbert Montoya, to make a few changes to an existing design to make it more unique,” ​​he says. “I [then] Booked us a trip to Soho Beach House in Miami and started my plan. ”

Justin was careful not to let any clue escape on their first night in Miami. “The next morning, that’s where it all happened,” he says. “I had flowers delivered to our hotel with specific instructions that she should go to the lobby to pick up the bouquet. Once she left the room, I started playing a playlist that I had been putting together all month, filled with songs that I sent her every day until that point. I prayed, and when she came back into the room, in the same joy and confusion about the flowers, I knelt down, presented the ring to her, and then it all made sense to her. She enthusiastically said yes, and we were able to enjoy the rest of our trip in love and peace.

Their wedding took place in mid-October at Villa Woodbine in Miami, Florida. “After a year, aside from being home with limited access to those we hold nearby, Justin and I were excited to share our yard with our friends and family,” Telsha said. “If there’s anything we’ve learned over the past two years, it’s the importance of bringing everyone together and celebrating not only love, but community as well. A large majority of our guests were vaccinated in time for our big day, and those who hadn’t were quarantined before and after arriving in Florida. Justin and I are extremely blessed and have had parents, grandparents, friends, extended family and colleagues on both sides. “

The couple worked with Florida-based wedding specialist Zeiry Cortez Gomez from Events by Zeiry. “Our engagement was in December 2020 and by the time hiring a planner crossed our minds, we already had some of the big details set in stone,” Telsha said. “We were grateful to have discovered Zeiry and its partial planning services. With his help, we were able to streamline every realistic and imaginary detail. Zeiry, Justin and I have passed on several texts and emails over the past few months with images from Pinterest or Instagram as well as some random concepts that we have cultivated from scratch. Zeiry and his team both recognized a need and executed it with precision. We couldn’t have asked for a better group of women to handle our wedding or our planning process.

When it comes to her wedding wardrobe, Telsha knew exactly what she wanted. In 2019, Danielle Hirsch of Danielle Frankel created a bridal design that caught her eye. “It was worn by Kelsey Asbille for the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Cocktail Design Challenge, and I remember scrolling through Vogue.com and picturing myself in the dress, twirling around and showing the pleats and workmanship,” Telsha says. “At that point, I took a screenshot and put it in my iPhone favorites for whenever the time arises. When we got engaged, I immediately knew who I was going to contact and who would look to wear on my big day. I made an appointment online, emailed Danielle’s team a screenshot and crossed my fingers, hoping the dress would be buried in my back and me would wait.

When Telsha arrived for her first fitting, Danielle Frankel’s team had her try on a few dresses before mentioning that there was a surprise in the back. “I turned around, and there it was all ivory / silk,” Telsha recalls. “The dress was so new that the lace flowers weren’t even fully sewn, but rather hung one by one with safety pins. I tried it, I started dancing as I had imagined it before, and it was done, ”she says. “After the dress, everything else just fell into place.” She wore a variety of rings from Spinelli Kilcollin and Tiffany & Co., as well as two sets of personalized earrings from Bernard James. “It was a goal [of mine] to strike a balance between traditional and non-traditional elements in my bridal look and each brand I choose played a role in that, ”Telsha said.

The bride’s hair was inspired by Rooney Mara’s look at the BFI London Film Festival. “It was important for me to choose a hairstyle with personality,” says Telsha, “that could withstand Miami’s humidity and that would show off the dress properly. Luckily I had an amazing bridal hair specialist, Martine Chery, the owner of Mon Cheri Hair Design. Martine took the remaining fabric from my dress and wrapped it around my hair with ease. For makeup, she worked with Tijienene Gordon. “I have never had makeup so long and perfectly,” says Telsha. “She was amazing! As for my nails, I only trust one person to do them and that’s Miki from Akiko Nails New York City, and I had them done the day before we left for Miami. Building a team based in a different state, during quarantine, was difficult but it couldn’t have worked better. “

Justin took his ensemble just as seriously. “As an artist, my immediate thought was to wear something outside of the norm, and I started to think about how I could take a classic costume and do it myself,” he explains. he. “I knew that if I had to wear a traditional costume, the tailoring had to be done to perfection, and rather than building something from scratch, I turned to the designs of Celine’s Hedi Slimane. With the help of one of my best friends, Jackson Ray, I was able to track down the last Panama Suit in the United States. [at the time]. The ivory color was the perfect accent for Telsha’s dress, and the accessories brought it all together: to start, Justin paired the suit with a white shawl-collar sleeveless shirt designed by Anthony Vaccarello of Saint Laurent. added her existing jewelry collection, a mix of silver from a mix of Hoorsenbuhs silver, Aziza Handcrafted and various vintage finds. And finally, “Anyone who knows me knows I love them. scarves, bandanas or truckers, so I went to the best of the best in silk – Hermès – to put it all together. ”

The ceremony began with the song “Agape” by Nicholas Britell. “[It’s] one of our favorite movies, If Beale Street could speak– a film about uncompromising love for black people, a love that can undoubtedly stay big and true in the midst of chaos and abuse, ”Telsha said. “As my dad and I walked down the aisle towards Justin, I couldn’t help but get overwhelmed and, of course, start to cry. My father, Milton Anderson, was also the wedding officiant – he opened and closed [the ceremony] with a funny joke that allowed Justin and I to relax as we recited our own vows with confidence and conviction.

“The ceremony was extremely moving for me,” adds Justin. “I was going through something I dreamed of having once, and I encountered a woman I was truly in love with. Honestly, it doesn’t get much better than that.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds mingled with the guests during the cocktail hour. Once the guests were seated at the reception, the father of the bride, along with all the men present, stood up and sang “My Girl” by The Temptations. “As the night wore on we sang with elders, laughed around amazing food and drinks, cried during speeches from our family members and rushed to the dance floor once the signal was given. from our wedding planner received, ”Telsha said. “Then we danced the night away! One of my favorite moments of the evening was giving our guests disposable cameras from Manual NYC and allowing them to capture our night from their perspective.

“Now I couldn’t be happier or more fulfilled,” said Justin. “Starting my life with Telsha is so liberating, so peaceful and so genuine. I had a moment like no other, and I can carry that moment with me for the rest of my life.

Philadelphia Eagles (2-5) are on the road again in Week 8 and face a winless game Detroit Lions (0-7) team at the start of Sunday afternoon.

Three weeks in a row now, the Eagles have struggled through three quarters and made a good effort to make their way into games during the garbage period, but again their efforts failed last week against the Raiders. Nick Sirianni said his message to the team this week is that they must continue to build a solid foundation and, like a flower, they will see the results in time. He still has confidence in his players and coaches, but expects a few changes from the defense this week.

Detroit is in a similar situation with a new head coach, albeit not for the first time, and this team has more fire to win a game than almost anyone else in the league. Head coach Dan Campbell became emotional when he spoke to reporters after the game about his desire for success for his players who are completely dedicated to preparation and play every week. Yet in seven games they haven’t been able to pull it off with Jared Goff at quarterback and plenty of playmakers on both sides of the ball.

Here’s everything you need to know on how to watch the game.
