Gemstone Place Cards

A few weeks ago, photographer Alexandra Wallace approached us to see if we could make some place cards for a shoot she was working on. We absolutely love making place cards, and any type of event signage, so we jumped at the chance!

 
 

Alexandra was working with some amazing fellow central coast vendors and we couldn't wait to see what they were dreaming up. The team consisted of Alexandra, Gusto on the Go, Copper and Crystal, and Eden Floral Designs.

Above is the Pinterest board that the team had put together, which we fell in love with! All the color, flowers, fruit and texture give us heart eyes all the way. We decided a natural texture would go with this shoot, as opposed to a paper or acrylic option, so we picked out the prettiest colored gemstones we could find, complete with gilded edges, and got to work!

We chose gemstones in a blue and pink palette, cut out names in gold foil in a fresh, modern font, and they were off to the shoot! We are so happy with how they came out, and they looked right at home with the other details in this Floral Bridesmaid Brunch shoot. 

Even though we just contributed a tiny detail in this shoot, we love it all the same - these vendors did an amazing job. See more on Green Wedding Shoes!

Feeling the Vacation Vibes

Since we're just re-booting our blog, we're taking this time to go *back* in time, and revisit some designs we never shared on here! 

The first we'd like to share is our All-White Mexico inspired shoot, which seems oh so perfect to bring back as the weather warms up and we start dreaming of far-away vacays. 

We designed this shoot with Tulum in mind, using worldly furniture from Elan Event Rentals, a gorgeous Rue De Seine wedding gown from Moondance Bridal, and natural accents to bring the design all together. The shoot took place at the Dos Pueblos Orchid farm, a venue a little North of Santa Barbara, that feels like another world! 

What we love about this shoot is that we pushed ourselves to design around white and neutrals. Typically we use a lot of color in our designs, but we absolutely LOVE how the different tones of white look with the natural wood accents, and the greenhouse venue itself. With enough texture, simplicity in a color scheme completely works! We have a few weddings later this year that are based on a white palette, so keep checking our Instagram for updates on those. 

And a huge thank you goes out to Style Me Pretty for featuring this fun shoot. We are so happy that SMP is continuing to thrive as a blog, as it's been a favorite of ours forever.

Angela & Nealon's Biddle Ranch Wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty

Angela & Nealon's 'Chinese American Wedding with a Bold Dose of Color' is featured today on Style Me Pretty!

This wedding was so much fun to plan and design, not only because of our sweet couple, but because we loved the color palette so much. It's not often when a bride comes to us wanting a color palette we haven't seen all over Pinterest! So when Angela told us she loved lavender and rouge, we were hooked. See below for a few of our favorites from the day. Kelsea Holder captured everything effortlessly!
