I first spotted these charming drinking jars at The Collection Event Studio in Sonoma, and I’ve been dreaming about them ever since! Why it’s taken me so long to chat about ACME Party Boxes…well I don’t know, but it’s quite genius! Their mission is to give party-throwers a sustainable, reusable and fair way to throw a party (“Parties good, Trash bad!”) whether it be for kids or adults. I’m in love with their concept and even more in love with their products. You’ll find options for favors, tableware, bunting, linens, lighting and centerpieces all for kids and adult parties! Yay for another Bay Area business doing us proud ;)
Already love their personal greeting cards but a full wedding invitation suite? Yes please! You can even print your own design on wood. Perfect for a rustic yet modern wedding or for someone who’s looking for a touch of something different! Be sure to check out all their products at the link above.
On Fridays (well, ok I admit almost everyday) I try and play catch up on my fav blogs. Looks like Apartment Therapy and it’s other design related sections received a face lift! Green Home is now Re-Nest, and while reading up on how to make my poorly sealed windows more energy efficient, I came across myself! My photo above was featured in a eco-friendly article about plates from Tuesday. You can see my post about it here.
I attended a Chicago wedding vendor party thrown by The Knot Magazine a couple weeks ago. I had the pleasure of meeting Heather, owner of Our Happy Wedding Day. All for green products myself, I thought it would be great to share these incredible invites – I’m sure you could use them for save the dates as well! Love the earthy design!

April 22 is Earth Day! I thought it would be informative to share some eco-friendly ideas to help make your wedding day as green as can be! Many articles are saying that this is a trend, but I hope that these pointers can become a permanent choice in helping our environment – wedding or not. In my own digital photography workflow, I try to minimize as much paper as possible by communicating through email. My proofs are viewed only online, as well as the album proofs. All my ink cartridges are recycled, and I try to use reusable/recyclable papers and packing materials. Any bit helps! Check out ways you can help! (more…)
My goal is to keep photography and it's community interacting within it's many fields; weddings, portraits, fashion, editorial & design. It's important to learn from one another so please let me know your thoughts and ideas! Please check back often as new topics, discussions, questions, and daily journaling appear.
