Christin + Jason | Bakersfield Woman's Club | Bakersfield, California

Christin was referred to me by one of my other brides, Megan, who happened to work with Christin.  I was so happy when Christin contacted me in regards to designing her ceremony programs and some other items for her wedding!  She explained to me that she was planning her wedding to include vintage details including antique buttons that were handed down to her by her grandmother and would be getting married at the historical Woman's Club in downtown Bakersfield.

We first discussed ceremony programs and designed a four layered landscape program that included a cover, ceremony order, wedding party introductions, and thank you's.  A script font paired with a typewriting font were combined with a vintage illustration of a flower and eggplant ribbon to complete the design.

Next was a custom bunting Christin wanted to hang from their sweetheart table at the reception.  A double strand bunting spelt out "Just Married".  Each panel featured vintage buttons, lace that mimicked the lace on Christin's dress and ribbon rosettes.  The panels were strung on the same eggplant ribbon that were used on the programs.

Table numbers were designed as square tent cards layered on eggplant cardstock and featured the vintage flower illustration as well.

Christin also had us design her bridal and toss garters.  For the bridal garter we once again used materials that mimicked her stunning dress and added in some vintage buttons for detailing.  The toss garter was very similar but was made out of eggplant organza and chiffon.

  1. I so loved the personal touches you applied to everything. I know it seems simple, but those little things made my wedding feel like it was MINE, not just a generic wedding. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I recommend you to everyone I know! oh and p.s. since we forgot to attach the bunting to the back of our getaway car, I draped it across the back of our first Christmas tree! :)

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…

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
