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!

Today our Gal Pal Campfest at the Tinkertin Trailer Co. Trailer Pond is featured up on Green Wedding Shoes! We put so much love behind this shoot and are so excited to finally share it!

Of all the details we made for this shoot, this balloon installation was definitely a highlight. Balloons aren't the easiest to work with, and that proved to be especially true over water, but we did not give up and are so pleased with how it came out! It added such a fun touch to the pond that really gave that 'bachelorette party' vibe!

This campsite full of restored vintage trailers from Tinkertin Trailer Co. is the most perfect venue for a bachelorette. You can make it as camp-like as you want, but for us, we made it girly, fun, and comfortable! With acrylic invitations, abundant florals, a mandala selfie wall, the most plush and stylish lounge, acrylic mandala place cards, and of course gorgeous bridesmaids, it all came together so wonderfully. We are so thankful to all our vendor friends who helped us put this shoot together. Our designs would be nothing without you all!

The JAM Event Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

When Cameron Ingalls first approached us to design a space at The Jam Event for The Wedding Standard, we were a bit hesitant. The theme was 1980's and we weren't sure where to begin. This is not our favorite decade design-wise! But of course we're willing to do anything for Cameron, so we put our thinking caps on and decided to go for it. 

Our idea was to go full Miami Vice and create an over-the-top surf inspired/iridescent/pastel paradise. The Wedding Standard sponsored a space at The Jam Event where we were able to design a tablescape and lounge with our pal and florist Katie Noonan. It was pink, blue, punchy and bright, and everything we like about the 80's. 

The entire album of images from The Jam is featured on Green Wedding Shoes today- check it out! After we saw all the other design spaces at the party we decided this decade wasn't so bad. Everyone knocked it out of the park!

The floral + balloon installation above is by Bright Inc and we LOVED it. The colors, textures, asymmetry, everything. Best way to start a party!

See our table and lounge design on Green Wedding Shoes under "THE VICE" and let us know what you think!
