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!

Agate Slice Place Cards + Wedding Prepping

We're prepping for a fun modern wedding coming up this weekend, and we've got some pretty exciting design elements in the works that we just couldn't wait to share!

Agate has been popping up everywhere, and we can't get enough. We got a huge shipment of it in last week, and this is how it looked..

I mean, those colors?! Insane. We had an idea of what we wanted to do with these little guys (they're about 3" wide), and that was to use them as place cards for each guest! See below:

We wrote on them with beautiful gold foil pens (iPhone photos don't quite do it justice), and gave the caterers a little heads up on Beef or Fish in the right hand corner. Don't they just look adorable?! 

We also can't wait to show you what we've done with the larger agate slices. It's going to be a Palm Springs wedding full of modern, yet earthy decor and it's sure to be a pretty one. We'll be sharing photos of this weekend on our Instagram, so check that out as well!
