Featured in Ceremony Magazine: Double Happiness

In honor of the Chinese Lunar New Year, I wanted to feature a wedding we did a while back which had both American and Chinese traditions.  It was a beautiful wedding designed by White Lotus Productions, planned by La Dolce Idea, photographed by Chrystal Cienfuegos and it was also featured in Ceremony magazine! Check out the link of other photos here.

Valentines for Preschool

I love Valentine’s Day and especially love putting together my daughters Valentine’s for her school.  She’s my little assistant so I have my helper and we’re snacking! This year I decided on goldfish since Maya loves them and I like doing things other than candy. (You can see my other Valentine’s treats here and here.) We stuffed little bags with goldfish and I designed cute tags and adhered them on.  I even put a 3D popup goggly eye for fun! Easy, done and I know her classmates will love them!

Real Wedding: Madison & Joel Tiffany Blue Wedding inspired

We had the pleasure of working with Lavish Wed for Madison and Joel’s wedding reception stationery at The Grand Del Mar and they wanted sparkle. We did their menu cards, escort cards, table names and programs in a metallic pearl white with silver glitter card stock adorned with Swarovski crystals.  Inspired by the groom who’s a professional race car driver, we designed tiffany blue checker flags!  The names of the tables were after famous speedway’s he’s raced at. I just love unique couples!  This wedding is gorgeous from the images below. Congratulations to Madison and Joel!

It’s a great way to start off 2015 in this New Year because we’re featured on Style Unveiled blog! With Marsala as the Pantone Color of the Year, it couldn’t be anymore perfect timing for this glamorous styled shoot invited by Lorena of A Rustic and Vintage Affair.  Everything is just beautiful and although it was styled on an autumn day, I think it’s fabulous for winter!
