Sam + Michelle tie the knot!

I couldn't be more excited for this wedding! Our wonderful friends Sam & Michelle tie the knot this Friday! I can't believe the big day is finally here and what an awesome day it will be! I've never met a couple that more embodies the spirit of fun.  I was lucky enough to be able to work with them over the last few months with a few of their paper elements for the wedding including their invitation set, Michelle's shower invitation, the table numbers and then the programs for the ceremony.

Sam & Michelle were so very involved in the design and feel of their paper elements - starting with their invitation set which was heavily influenced by their love of the beach and music - specifically Jack Johnson concert posters. I can't wait to see everything come together on Friday - it's going to be absolutely beautiful and unique to them as a couple.

Stay tuned for some photos of the actual items and hopefully of the lovely couple on their day! Congrats Sam & Michelle!

Table Talk!

I can't believe it's May 10th and Sam & Michell's wedding is only 10 days away! They're such wondeful friends and a great couple and we're so excited to be at their big day! I was lucky enough to work with them on their invitations and Michelle's shower invitations. I haven't put up photos yet of the invitations but those will be coming soon! For now here are some samples of the table numbers we're doing...can you say fun beach theme!? Everything they're doing is so SD beach inspired!

Happy Mother's Day!

Ava's first picture with Great-Gram
In my about me area I mention my Grandpa and what an influence he had on me. That being said we're a family of women...my poor brother barely stood a chance!

Mother's Day has always been a holiday that my family cherishes and celebrates and while we're not doing a formal get together this Sunday, this year is no different! The women in my family are strong, funny and resilient and I am proud to say that I look up to all of them! So this Sunday even though I won't be with them all I will be thinking of them and thanking each of them for shaping me in their own little way.

Nisha + Sam...samples!

A few weeks ago I blogged the draft sample of Nisha & Sam's wedding invitations & info card and now it's sample time! The colors are brilliant on the white linen stock and I am really excited for these to get to them. With the navy backer for the invite and the dotted papaya envelope liner that the couple has chosen from Paper Source these are going to be rich, full of color and fun!

{Please parden the pic - it's off my phone but next up is to take some nice photos of these as well as the other samples to share properly on here! }

Sneak Peak! {K+C Weekend Itinerary}

Stamps complements of zazzle
Nothin' like cute stamps and a fun wrap label to make mail a little extra special for guests! We'd used a similar stamp and wrap for Kelly's invitations and decided to tie it in again when we went to mail the weekend itineraries to her guests but this time we mixed up the color scheme a bit and I think it turned out fun and fresh!

They're a great primer for the enclosed weekend itineraries that outline everything from a baseball game rehearsal dinner to the big day itself and then what's that you say? An In-N-Out Sunday brunch poolside?! What's better than that!? Stay tuned for more images of Kelly + Chris' fun wedding collateral for their big day May 21!
