Save The Dates- damask design

I have the pleasure of working with a new bride named Amy. I am so excited to be helping her with her paper designs, start to finish! We just finished her save the dates, we will do her invitations in the spring, and finally we will work on her reception cards before the wedding. Amy is the sweetest bride, and she has wonderful taste! She wanted to go with a contemporary but elegant look. She has decided to use a damask design for her wedding, so I am working on using that in her paper designs as well. Her Save The Dates were printed on a beautiful shimmer paper, and were complemented beautifully by these lined envelopes. I am so excited to see how her invitations come out!

Another Pryde wedding

I just had the privilege of doing paper designs for the sister of a bride I worked with over a year ago! Her name is Anna, and she was a joy to work with! She was torn between a simple stripe design and a floral design, so I incorporated the two. Again we used diffrent placecard colors to designate the guest's entree choices. Her wedding took place outdoors and her planner, Janece Shellooe of Every Elegant Detail did a wonderful job of displaying the escort cards so that the wind wouldn't blow them away!

Audrey and James

Audrey and James had a beautiful ceremony this past Sunday at Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside, CA. It was a pleasure working with them to provide a design that was fitting for their sophisticated tastes! Janece Shellooe of Every Elegant Detail did a beautiful job organizing the event!

We ended up using 4 different escort card designs to designate the guest's different entree choices.

We went with this folded program which was very simple and elegant in design. I loved that they wanted to include a tribute to Buck, their dog/ring-bearer, on the back of the program!

Nancy Liu Chin did a beautiful job with the floral designs! Here is one of her centerpieces with my table number card. Audrey and James wanted a note under their table numbers that explained that they were donating to a local charity in lieu of providing favors. I thought that was a really neat idea!

The menu was very classic and fun to put together. The catering by Thomas John Events made for a detailed menu with lovely entree descriptions. There were also several food stations (see the amazing seafood display on ice in the top photo) for the guests to enjoy!

Gina and Bryan

I was honored to do the paper designs for Gina and Bryan's wedding and reception! She was the sweetest bride to work with, and it all came together beautifully! They got married at Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside, CA. Here are some pictures from their beautiful wedding...

Gina chose to do a program with a 2-sided layout. She wanted her program to have soft, elegant colors, while the menu and placecards brought out the bolder pinks.

Jean Marks, Gina's talented wedding coordinator, did a wonderful job of displaying the escort cards so that they wouldn't blow away! The setup was beautiful.

I love the simplicity of this design- the initials of the bride and groom intersecting each other in a contemporary design that represents the lifetime bond of marriage. This card is a 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 design, but can be changed to a 5X7 if you prefer.

Make a wish! This dandelion design shows a touch of whimsy with a contemporary flair! Available in your wedding colors!

Cherry Blossoms

I think cherry blossoms are one of my favorite flowers! I love the interesting shapes that the branches make! This is a beautiful invitation set for a spring wedding.

Here it is shown on a textured paper.

As you can see, the flower colors can be changed to match your wedding colors,
or you can go with the classic pink!

Navy Wheat Design

This is a simple design that would be perfect for an elegant fall wedding. The navy wheat design contrasts against a tan or off-white background.

Pryde Wedding

For this wedding I was asked to make place cards, escort cards, and table number cards. She had a beautiful green and turquoise theme that was fun to work with! The design I used on the card was fun, elegant and incorporated both colors.
