Whoo hoo it’s Friday! Perfect day to be featured on 100 Layer Cake for a Kate Spade inspired photo shoot of San Francisco event designers Sitting in a Tree Events and Enjoy Events Co.! The lovely ladies played, partied and planned at the amazing space of The Collection Event Studio located in Sonoma (one stop shop for all things weddings). I love the Bay Area for it’s collaborative feel in the wedding industry. Sometimes industry egos fly and competitive streaks take over…but not here! I’m such an advocate of sharing, referring and hiring wedding planners, wink wink! So visit here to see the Q&A and here to view the behind the scenes video from Austin Hendrix Productions. (more…)
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 ;)
Did you miss me?! Hehe, I’m back in San Francisco from a successful week of photographing more custom stationery for Cheree Berry Paper’s new website (coming in a few months). And we had the pleasure of having some of the wedding invitation images from the last two photo shoots featured on 100 Layer Cake the same week! If you missed it, see them here!
I’m traveling to St. Louis today for another stationery photo shoot for Cheree Berry Paper. Posts will be on the light side this week, but I hope you’ll follow the photo shoot fun via Instagram and Twitter! While you wait for me to come back to San Francisco…enjoy these fabulously yummy images for Hotel Vitale’s stylish and cozy restaurant Americano. It was a quick shoot for Americano’s website to highlight how pleasant their outdoor patio space is while you drink their delicious signature cocktails and eat their fresh food. Yum! (more…)

A sneak peek of the (new!) The Collection Event Studio – Northern Cali’s premier talent and resource treasure trove for creatives in the event and wedding industries. In support of wedding event designers, photographers and other vendors – the studio functions as a vibrant inspiring space with a boutique appeal. Keep your pretty eyes peeled for special upcoming events at the studio – trunk shows, wedding/bridal parties, industry mingling events, and all kinds of industry-savvy affairs to come. I had the pleasure of photographing how the space can be utilized for the fine event designer folks, lovely design teams Sitting in a Tree and Enjoy Events Co. crafting it up! More about The Collection Event Studio at their website.
Goodbye flags and hello fringe! Loving the textures and concepts of the parties using fringe. The perfect way to add a playful vibe to your party or wedding decor. Hang it, drape it, wrap it, cover it – the options are endless. Be sure to visit the the links above…Jordan has a diy crepe paper fringe tutorial!
It’s the one detail that isn’t thought of much but can be a game changer in the decor details department on your big day…to wrap your bouquet or not? I’m loving both wrapped and not (long stem bouquets), however, when a unique material is used or pretty brooch/pin is added it just adds a little bit more pretty to the flowers. I’ve had brides that pinned their family’s brooch or jewelry to carry something old, so sweet! Do you have any favorite materials or bouquet decor ideas?
Hello darlings! I’m delighted to share photos from my shoot with Megan and Emily of Enjoy Events Co.! We all know visuals are everything especially for a website and especially in the styling and event industry. So when the ladies asked me to help them out, I knew it’d be 1) super fabulously fun and 2) a way to knock people’s socks off with M&E personality on their new site! So go check out their site here for cuteness and if you’re looking for whimsical wedding styling! (more…)
Happy Friday! If you haven’t noticed already…things look a bit different around here. Welcome to the new me! Did you see my new business cards here? The official launch of my new portfolio site launched a couple days ago and a girl can’t launch and not throw a party to celebrate! So I quickly planned a little carnival-meets-glam shindig at the offices behind my genius design & website – Asketic SF! I can’t even describe how in love I am with the whole look, and they totally nailed the pin on the donkey right? Thank you to everyone who came out and showed support, much love to you! Big thanks to Sarah for taking all the fun photos you see on my new website! Dive into more pics… (more…)
