We branded this entire wedding in beautiful pastel colors meant to reflect the gorgeous surroundings of Malibu. From a full invitation suite with map to can coolers and signature cocktail signage we customized everything for this celebration. Every element had a purpose and tied the entire event together so just by glancing a guest would know they were in the right spot.
I think I spent a solid hour clicking back and forth over these amazing shots of my client’s wedding. How beautiful are these pictures? It really warms my heart when a client thinks enough of me to send pictures of their wedding day. Laura and her husband Lindsey, could not have looked happier! Photographer, Caroline Robert, of Sweet Caroline Photo, did an amazing job capturing their beautiful smiles and the amazing scenery. How beautiful do they look? She is simply gorgeous! Wow! She also sent along shots of all the custom creations I made.
I really worked to create a theme that could be carried throughout the wedding celebration. A custom color palette, monogram, and font can transform and bring order to any wedding. I look the wedding as an event that should have a true story and continuity throughout, capturing the importance of the occasion and the personality of the couple. Laura and Lindsay, nailed this wedding and their guests had an amazing time celebrating with them. Check out the wonderful vendor below that helped them pull together such an amazing wedding.
Laura met up for lunch a few weeks back in Dallas while she was in town and she couldn’t have been sweeter. She’s a successful salesperson for Roadtrippers.com, an awesome resource for planning your next trip. Check out her bio HERE. She was so complimentary and really encouraged me to utilize my talents as a designer on an additional pathway I’ve been working on. I am so thankful for her, and others like her, that have taken their time to support me. I look forward to staying in touch and supporting one another. Thank you.

Getting engaged, and the subsequent journey to the big day is a very exciting time — a journey filled with parties, planning and the occasional headache. Many times, I am contacted soon after engagement by enthusiastic brides ready to hit the ground running planning their dream wedding. I love it when I am able to work with a client throughout their engagement because I know that when we’re done the wedding day will be the easy part. A little planning up front really goes a long way, and while I am not a wedding planner, the items I design are meant to bring cohesiveness, order and beauty to the wedding day. The perfect color palette, typeface, theme, and timing are all important aspects when it comes to having a smooth running wedding and reception. Check out what I was able to do for Alex and Emily!
Over a year a go we started working with a wonderful bride, Natalie, on her upcoming wedding in Los Angeles. She and her fiancé have classic taste, but wanted something a little more unique. We went to work on a design that incorporated the aspects of a traditional wedding invitation suite with a modern twist. The classic script combined with a modern monogram brought together the old and new and the muted colors along with a bold blue only pulled the entire ensemble together. Natalie loved the look so much that she decided to carry the look throughout her entire wedding. From the wedding map, seating chart, menus, and place cards, to party favors and totes, the look was flawless. It was almost as flawless as the couple themselves! This really highlights how a wedding can truly be unique without sacrificing your style. It was a blast designing this set and working with such a sweet couple. Congratulations, Ben and Natalie! Remember, beauty is in the details. LOVE. DESIGN. PAPER.
This past week my good friends at Lot 207 and In Season Catering hosted an amazing rehearsal dinner for some really great people, Jillian and Brady Luby. We began working with Brady's mother, Donna, months ago creating custom invitations, menus, seating charts, table numbers... you name it. We even used a design Carol created on chocolate made by Yelibelly Chocolates! It was such a blast working with Donna, and we hope to work with her again very soon. Congratulations Jillian and Brady! Oh, and of course, Carol designed a map for their wedding! Check out some of the photo's before the party started below.
