Happy Birthday to My Princess!

0comments

I cannot believe it’s been 3 years since I held my baby girl in my arms for the first time! She is such a gift, such a blessing, and I am beyond grateful for my little fire cracker. She is about to start pre-school in a few months, becoming more and more independent, and has the most amazing imagination. She is at such a fun age and I am just trying to savor every minute. Happy Birthday Piper Marie!!

Real Wedding {Beer inspired Vineyard Wedding}

3comments

When Braedon (as in Braedon photography) sent over these gorgeous shots of this wedding he shot recently I was jumping up and down. I could not wait to share!

The Vintage Ranch in Paso Robles was just stunning, and gave the wedding that backyard feel I just abosolutely adore!

I can’t get enough of this wine country beauty!! So romantic!

This beer loving couple, incorporated the on trend beverage into the centerpieces, escort cards, and drinks of course. The groom brews his own beer, and the couple spent their honeymoon touring beer specific regions! How great is that?

The oh so fabulous Enjoy Cupcakes was there providing their mouthwatering delights in their too cute for words vintage Shasta trailer!

I love the rustic fabulousness of the venue! and the sense of humor of the couple!

Such a fun wedding! Thanks so much Braedon for sharing your gorgeous photos!

When Braedon of Braedon Photography sent over these gorgeous shots from a recent wedding in Sonoma I could not wait to share. From the absolutely stunning couple, to the gorgeous florals, and the breathtaking scenery, this is a wedding to remember…

I adore the pretty pale pink color palette, and the sophisticated vibe of this vineyard wedding.

I love the unique table numbers and the mr. and mrs. silverware is to die for!

The wedding was at Viansa Winery, what a gorgeous spot for a wedding! Thanks Braedon for sharing your gorgeous photos!

Real Wedding {Molly + Max}

I am so excited to share this real wedding with you guys. It is such a true romance, and the DIY details are the perfect reflection of the bride and groom. The gorgeous photos were captured by Braedon Photography.

This wedding is so unique, from the venue (a Boy Scout camp), to the moccasins the bride wore. Picnic inspired decor complete with vintage sheets and table cloths to cover the tables and a subtle Native American vibe.

I love when Molly talks about how the children at the wedding walked down the aisle holding hands and yelling “the bride is coming the bride is coming!”. How adorable right!?

We had the pleasure of creating the paper goods for Molly + Max’s wedding. Tune in tomorrow for the full stationery reveal! Thanks Braedon for sharing these gorgeous photos with us!

For more details on the wedding check out this fabulous post on Once Wed.

When Braedon of Braedon photography sent over these gorgeous shots of this fabulously stylish couple, and close friends of ours Max and Molly, I was jumping up and down! They’re a great couple and very talented aspiring videographers as well….

I can’t get over how adorably cute they are!! We are so lucky to be working with them on all their paper goodies for the wedding and events and I cannot wait to share.

How adorable are those hearts? Handmade by Molly herself. I love that shot of her holding the heart over Max’s head!

You really must check out their videos, they are amazing! Thanks so much Braedon for sharing your gorgeous photos!!

Rachelle's Maternity Shoot

2comments

I (Lauren) wanted to share with you Rachelle’s beautifully whimsical maternity shoot featured on Grey Likes Baby.  Rachelle and Michael recently welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Piper Marie in the world, but before Rachelle shares her precious princess with you, I wanted to reveal her absolutely gorgeous maternity shoot!

The shoot truly captures Rachelle, with the essence of a forest fairy tale and anthropologie-esque appeal.  Thanks to Braedon Photography, who captured these ethereal images, as well as Jeni, from Found Vintage Rentals for providing the furniture as well as helping style the shoot, and Jesi Haack, who contributed additional styling and accessories.  The headpiece was made by Ink and Button and the floral wreath was made by Emily’s mom.

Well once again Braedon of Braedon Photography has sent over the most fabulous wedding for us all to enjoy. Not only are the photos gorgeous but this wedding has such fabulous details I could not wait to share! The wedding took place at the grooms family vineyard in Napa. I love the backyard-chic vibe of this wedding. One of my favorite looks.

The centerpieces and table arrangements were created by family friend Tina Drake of Drake Designs, and they are absolutely stunning. I love the lime details! So clever! AND you can eat them after! As you can see the property is amazing!

I am loving all the hand calligraphy details. The calligraphy is by the very talented Thistle Creek Studio, J. Panter. The bouquets and boutonnieres were created by Valley Flora. I am a total sucker for a well designed candy bar, and this one is done so beautifully. I love how the color palette perfectly matches the wedding details, and the retro candy is so fun!

Love the retro car to take the couple away! Another absolutely amazing wedding, thank you Braedon for sharing!!

Favorite New Wedding Venue

3comments

Ok so as you may have seen the wedding I posted yesterday from Braedon of Braedon Photography.  I was especially loving the venue, Marvimon, located in Los Angeles. I think it so hard to find a unique wedding location these days, and this one just has so much character and unique aspects that I am totally smitten. I love the brick walls, and urban vibe mixed with the fabulous outdoor area. How perfect! Also the retro vibe of the furnishings is so great.

And check the sister property, Smog Shoppe. Wow!! so inspired!!!
