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!

Popping the Question to my Bridesmaids!

A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to ask my sisters to be my bridesmaids. I am so excited for them to stand by my side when I tie the knot later this year! It was a little tricky to figure out when to ask them, as it has never been a question that they would be my bridesmaids!

Since I'm the youngest of the three, and have been a bridesmaid in both of their weddings, I was so excited to be able to ask them to be in my wedding in a cute way. I wanted to get them something special, but after I couldn't find that one thing I wanted, I decided to put together these boxes full of little gifts that go with our wedding design. 

Each box went with their personal style: Natalie's was a black and white striped box lined in pink, and Michelle's was a mint green box with gold accents. Inside I included a gold pineapple, pink/coral bar soaps, Susie Cakes sugar cookies, and a modern brass frame fit with a baby photo of us together. To top it off, Sugar Paper has THE cutest "Will you be my Bridesmaid" cards in the prettiest blush pink and gold foil that I just had to get for them.

The night after I put together the boxes, I went on Pinterest and began to feel like the boxes weren't enough. Seems to me that people are going through as much to ask their bridesmaids to be in their wedding as their fiancé did! Since this wasn't a proposal, I was glad I kept it simple and sweet. Oh the things Pinterest can do to you!

And little do they know they will be getting some more fun surprises up until the day of our wedding! <3

Sending Our Love!

Happy Valentine's Day! This year we wanted to send our love in a special way, so we brainstormed together and created a little something to send to close vendors and clients. 

These little heart and arrows are a fun way to show how much we love the vendors we work with and give them a little taste of our creativity. The last photo is actually from the Instagram of a lovely vendor Danielle Capito Photography when she received it in the mail!

 We decided we should share these with the world, so the magnets are available in our Etsy Shop, Lovelyfest Goods! We're thinking they'd be cute as favors for parties or to send to someone as a little non-Valentine surprise :)
