Bingham Wedding Part 4

Matt and I wanted a custom and unique guestbook for our wedding. We were going to have our photographer take a picture of us during the reception with every family, couple, or individual that attended the wedding. I decided to take ivory cardstock and mat each family's (or couple and individual) name on the paper accented with either a pink or orange stripe made out of Bling paper. I then used the same stamps that I used on the cover of the programs to accent the pages but this time they were stamped in a pink and orange stamp pad. We placed a chocolate brown cardstock place holder where the pictures would eventually go so guests wouldn't write in that area. During our reception, our DOC handed out the guestbook pages along with brown Sharpie's so the guests could write on them. We loved how they turned out. Guests wrote words of wisdom, inside jokes, sweet messages, and some even doodled or did sketches. We are placing the pictures on the pages and will put them into a brown linen scrapbook.


Here is a picture of pages before, during, and after the whole event.

Three examples of our guestbook pictures that we took with our guests to be placed on the guestbook pages after the wedding.


Here is our friend, Ryan filling out his and his girlfriend, Michelle's, guestbook page.


I also designed a seating chart to be displayed along with table names. We named each table after a city in Santa Barbara/Ventura Counties as well as some of the Channel Islands (Santa Barbara, Anacapa, Ventura, Santa Rosa, Etc.).



We also made reserved seating signs for our parents and grandparents to be displayed on their chairs during the ceremony.

Monday Matinae | "Beauty and the Beast" Styling with Jessica Frey

This winter, we got the opportunity to design for a unique shoot that Jessica of Jessica Frey Photography was putting together!  I can't tell you how excited we were to design for this and finally get the chance to work with her!  Jessica has done several fairy tale inspired shoots that are aimed to help brides find modern fairy tale inspiration. Such a cool concept!
For this styling, we had the opportunity to design an invitation suite, placecards, a cake topper, menu, and bunting.  For the invitation we created a navy metallic gatefold that featured an ornate metallic yellow frame that are laser cut and placed to "frame" the panel.  The panel was printed on pearl metallic paper and featured modern silhouettes.  A thick satin ribbon adorned with a gold brooch tied around the outside of the invitation.  The invitation was then placed in a navy metallic invitation box along with a coordinating response card and inner envelope.
Placecards were designed as tent cards using…

Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 2

Over a year ago, I got the chance to design birthday invitations and accessories for an adorable set of twins.  During that event, a guest at that party (Melanie) noticed my work and asked or my info so she could get in contact with me about her daughter's 8th birthday.  Soon after, we met and realized she actually lived on my same street!  As we spoke, she told me that her daughter, Maggi, was born on October 27th and  they had always had a Halloween inspired party for her but this year she wanted to put a twist on it.  I had just seen an Alice in Wonderland inspired paper line that had just hit the stores and when I showed the paper to Melanie she fell in love with the idea of using the paper as our inspiration and turning Maggi's party into a Alice in Wonderland tea party with a Halloween twist!
We designed two panel invitations that were held together with ribbon.  The fronts of the panels featured Alice in Wonderland and Halloween elements while the backs featured the in…

Ken's 50th Birthday | Jack Daniels

We got the chance to design another JD inspired birthday but switched it up a bit this time!  :)  Invitations were created using the design below and layered on white cardstock with coordinating envelopes.  We also got to design cupcake toppers and a bunting!  Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of the bunting before it shipped but each panel was black with the white border design and letters spelling out "Ken's 50th Birthday". Each panel was tied together using black twine. So fun!
