Paris by the Beach Wedding Shoot

0comments

When the images from a recent shoot we collaborated on, showed up in our inbox we were beyond in love. I mean the details on this shoot are unreal! From the custom made structures, to the gorgeous chandeliers, and don’t get me started on that veil!! We had so much fun creating the invitations for this shoot, taking inspirations from french chateau meets glamour by the beach. So beyond fun with wax seal details and hand dyed silk ribbons, our favorites!! Not to mention the custom mini cakes with calligraphed flags to double as place cards!! yes and yes! Check out all the details over on Love Luxe Life, and the full list of dream team vendors below.

Real Wedding {Little Palm Island}

0comments

I am beyond thrilled that one of my favorite weddings of the year, if not all time,  is featured on Reverie Gallery. Jeff and Bob were a dream to work with, and really gave us creative freedom to capture them as a couple, and infuse the tropical chic vibe of Little Palm Island into the paper goods. We started with a custom watercolor letterpress save the date. The blue watercolor hinted at the turquoise blue ocean, and the palm trees set the tone for the destination. Next we created a custom calligraphed monogram which we used as a wax seal. We sourced bamboo thatched paper to serve as a backer for the invitation itself and wrapped it in a Japanese rice paper to create a big reveal for the guests when opening the invitations. We used hand calligraphy rather than a font to add to the custom and unique feel of the suite.

For the dayof pieces, we really wanted guests to feel like the wedding was a true experience. Guests were greeted with custom tote bags, and personalized hang tags on each. One of my favorite details were the custom door hangers for guests to put outside their hotel room after a long night. We continued the feel of the invitation on the menus which had the same bamboo backer and custom wax seal. We even had each menu hand calligraphed so they doubled as place cards! Such a gorgeous event for a gorgeous couple! Please be sure to visit Reverie Gallery for more of the details there.

Emily’s Baby Shower

0comments

FINALLY! I am so excited to finally show you the gorgeous images from Emily’s baby shower photographed by the amazing Andrea Patricia. When we started talking about the arrival of Emily’s second baby girl and the idea of a shower, Emily really wanted something simple, intimate and cozy. Bingo! We decided to gather her closest friends and family and have a cozy dinner party. Nili Stevens Inspired Living, my co-host and planner extraordinaire made all the delicious food which was amazing! She made a puree of white bean soup topped with crispy prosciutto that we tray passed with cocktails in three ounce petite soup bowls. There was a cheese and charcuterie plate (of course) on fabulous display pieces by Vagabond House.  The menu also included an Arugula Salad with Meyer Lemon Shrub Vinaigrette, Pork Sugo Parpadelle with Hazelnuts and Fresh Herbs and Organic Zucchini Sauté with Chili and Lemon. We offered guests blankets to snuggle out by the fire pit as the sun set. The blankets were placed on the most gorgeous Vagabond House tray and the blankets doubled as favors. We showered Emily with love, friends, and fabulous food. It was a success I must say!

Hot off the Press {Map Liners}

1comments

I just love this invite we recently custom designed for the fabulous Sugar Press.  The letterpress and double thick paper create a classic look, while the envelope liners reflect the couple’s personality. Requesting a subtle nautical feel to hint at the couple’s love for sailing and for the Newport Harbor area, we created custom printed envelope liners showing a map of the area complete with a nautical inspired compass.
