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! :)

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!
