Real Wedding | Justin & Lauren’s Santa Barbara Wedding

Justin and Lauren’s wedding was my absolute favorite from last year, I can’t believe it took me so long to blog! Jake and I had such a fun time getting to know Lauren and Justin on their engagement shoot and while spending time with them to design their invitations and day of details. They are both such nice and wonderful people (can I say extremely gorgeous couple as well) so it wasn’t surprising when we met their family on the wedding day that they were just as sweet.

I was blown away at Justin and Lauren’s epic wedding day in Santa Barbara, California. Ariel of Ariel Yve Designs worked with Lauren to help plan and coordinate the whole day and it turned out perfectly. I designed their Wedding Invitations with a lace belly-band detail and addressed the envelopes for each guest. I also designed the menu, hand lettered the table numbers and escort cards,  and designed a custom stamp for the muslin goodie bags. The ceremony was at the beautiful Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Santa Barbara and the reception was at the incredible Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara. *I am excited and honored that this Wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty -California*

Save the Date | Matt & Katie California Map

I am 100% behind on blogging, but working to catch up! This Save the Date I designed back in the beginning of the year for Katie and Matt who are getting married at The Cliffs Resort in Pismo Beach. Jake and I did their Engagement Shoot in the cute town of Cayucos and used some of their favorite pictures for the Save the Date! Katie really liked  the California Map Save the Date I did for Bev & Banjo last year, so we took the same basic map and added her home town of Clovis. The town of Clovis has a super cute downtown sign which I recreated for the map and used the same shape for the return address stamp.  We are excited to work with Mark Padgett Wedding Design and The Cliffs Restort for their wedding!

Personal | Road Trip to Oregon

Oregon Trip 2012

Jake and I are off to Oregon for 10 days for my family’s yearly reunion at the lake.  I hope to catch up on blogging when I return so you can see some on my latest projects. This is a cute postcard I found last week at the Alameda Flee Market, I thought it was a good way to say I’m off to the lake!

    Mom — I love the postcard…looks just like our lake!

This Weeks Project | Stephanie & Casey’s Stamp Invitation

This week I am working on stamping Stephanie an Casey’s Invitations on chipboard. Stephanie is my best friend from childhood so when she asked me to design her a custom invitation I wanted to do something new and exciting so I went with stamping! We decided on a honeycomb design after she told me she was giving jars of honey as favors. Wish me luck on stamping 100 Invites and RSVPs, I will show you the finished product when I am done!

    Mom — I attended Stephanie’s Bridal Shower yesterday, this invitation that you helped Steph design was the topic of conversation. Can’t wait to see the finished product.

Wedding | Doobie & Kayla’s Invitation

It’s Kayla and Dobbie’s wedding day! Doobie and Kayla live in San Luis Obispo but decided to take their friends and family to the North Shore of Oahu for a relaxing vacation and to tie the knot! I am excited to share with you their custom designed accordion-fold invitation inspired by marine scientific drawings–so cool! I am very thankful that Kayla chose me to design her invitations because  she had some great and creative ideas for her marine inspired but not “kitschy Hawaiian beach” invitation, they were so much fun to create for her! I think Kayla’s seafoam, gold, coral and cream color scheme works perfectly to show guests that this event will be a classy vintage occasion.  I love the accordion invitation format because it incorporates the engagement pictures plus have enough room for all the wedding details, and a tear-off RSVP postcard. Kayla wanted to include a detailed map of the North Shore of Oahu,  accommodations and a fun list of their favorite places to eat on Oahu.

I love their engagement shoot pictures by Mike Larson Photography,  they go so well with the invitation which I designed first then added their pictures once they had their photo shoot. I can’t wait to see the ones from the wedding! Congratulations Kayla and Doobie!

Save the Date | Matthew & Jacqueline

I am excited to share with you an illustrated Save the Date design I did for Jaqueline and Matthew. Jacqueline wanted something really similar to this cute Vermont Save the Date by Scout’s Honor Co. with the hand drawn names, sunset and plane.  Since Jacqueline and Matthew are getting married at Avila Beach Resort,  she wanted me to incorporate the Avila Pier and ocean backdrop.  I also designed a custom address stamp which matches their Save the Dates and can be used for years to come!

I can’t wait to see how their wedding unfolds with the collaboration of Mark Padgett Wedding Design and Mike Larson Photography.
