Real Wedding: Daniel and Milton Pink affair at the US Grant

We were featured on Mrster.com for Daniel and Milton’s very special wedding.  They had unique touches throughout their wedding including choosing the color pink in honor of Daniel’s mother who died of breast cancer. To honor her, he wore a heart tied to his boutonniere.  We designed their menu cards which were personalized for each guest and placed on each setting with a box of chocolates and custom imprinted lip balms, something that Daniel and Milton exchanged when they first met. They were heavily involved in the planning process along with event designer, Sabrina of La Dolce Idea and everything was beautiful. Congratulations to Daniel and Milton and thank you for letting me be part of your special day!

Cookie Valentine’s Day treats

I know I’m just a little late for this post, but I wanted to share my daughter’s Valentine’s Day preschool treats just because I have other ideas on my blog here, here and here. I’m really big about healthier choices for my little ones and although she’s getting older, I can’t keep the sweets completely away.  She’s been into Oreo’s lately so she decide to share some of her favorites with her preschool friends.  There’s nothing better than cookies and milk! Hope you had a nice Valentine’s day!

Travel theme reception items

Our couple are avid travelers so it was only fitting for them to have a travel inspired wedding. They wanted to incorporate destinations they traveled so we designed postcard style table names with places and photos they actually took.  For their escort cards, we designed boarding passes and guests were encouraged to find their “destination” or table for dinner.  Its a fun way to personalize their big day and show their guests more about what they enjoy as a couple!

Real Wedding: Tricka & Matt’s Rustic and Vintage Wedding

We designed a few of the paperie for Tricka and Matt’s rustic and vintage glam style ranch wedding (Say that ten times fast!) Their escort cards which were adorned with a vintage broach hanging from greenery looked so fabulous!  We also designed a bar sign, which I loved the wording for and a reception program so guests were prepared for the evening’s events. Congratulations Tricka and Matt and thank you for including us on your special day!

Real Wedding: Lauren & Jonathan San Diego Zoo Safari Park

If you’re an animal lover, you’re in for a real treat because Lauren and Jonathan’s wedding was absolutely amazing!  Their invitations we designed set the tone for this unique affair and had all their guests in awe before the big day. With the venue at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, it was one “wild wedding!”  The ceremony location had the most beautiful view with the mountains as the backdrop and they had plenty of gorgeous photo locations around the zoo including one with a resident cheetah. True Photography always does amazing work and these photographs definitely show that. Instead of table numbers, they had different animals from the wild as part of their centerpiece and we designed a silhouette of the animal for their escort cards. Sabrina of La Dolce Idea did a fantastic job with coordination and design including the layout with the paper lanterns overhead and the stunning dessert table. That macaron cake though! Everything is perfection!
