This year, we have twelve weddings to attend. Twelve!!! And it’s not like I can say not because it some of my favorite people getting married! Therefore, there will be a smattering of wedding posts in the new few weeks.
One of the more recent weddings we attended was someone I’ve known since 13, a childhood friend, Jessie. She asked me to run her wedding and I obliged so I didn’t capture that many details but I know her lovely photographer, Nick Radford who shot this wedding will have many good ones to share. The wedding was held at the beautiful Orcutt Ranch in southern California. It’s a state park so cost for rental isn’t as high as other venues.
They also asked me to design their invitations. Something clean and art-deco. Jessie really wanted to incorporate rose gold foiling into the invite which we did. Hopefully I’ll have some better shots soon!
The bride DIY-ed some really adorable hot air balloon centerpieces out of paper lanterns, yarn and potted succulents.
Congrats to the lovely couple.
Last weekend, my little brother got married and it was such a fun celebration for us on many levels. His wife asked me to help with the invitations and she herself already hand in her mind a grand idea. The main part of this invitation was this kind of geometric shape artwork that she HAND drew. It was amazing. Not surprising that she has a keen eye in design since she was a fellow art major except that she studied Interior Architecture & Design and The Academy of Art. I simply digitized it with some gradient and laid out the text for her. The envelopes featured sheep because of the book they both read and apparently initiated the relationship: A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami.
Okay, so now check out these amazing yarn knitted escort cards. I love the integration of this to the invite. It is such a unique escort card. Her maid of honor lovingly made all 250.
The reception was held outdoors at the beautiful Los Altos History Museum.
These unique DIY centerpieces were also one of my favorite little elements from the wedding. She created the geometric shapes similar to what she drew in the invitation with little coffee sipper straws. I’m going to have to ask her for a tutorial on those.
My little boy got to be the ring bearer.
What wedding isn’t complete without the bride and groom smashing pinatas of themselves?

Hi everyone! It’s been busy so thanks to you who all check back 🙂 Lisa has been really busy attending pastry school in San Francisco and working on fun recipes over at JolieJolie Fooderie’s blog. The perks of her commute for me are that she is near all the amazing food. She recently brought by an amazing B. Patisserie which has AMAZING kogin amann (flaky croissant like buttery-sugary goodness.) It is probably one of the best ones I’ve had since I was in France a few years ago.
I (Rachel), on the other hand have been busy working on a few stationery and invitation projects. I just added and will be continually adding more wedding invitations, party invitations and save the dates to the shop!
Check out some of the latest additions.
You may have seen the foiled version of this invite, now I’m offering it as a more budget-friendly flat printed version.
