wedding crashers 2013

Was just relishing in what a fun time I had yesterday at the Wedding Crasher's show. The couples I met were so outstanding - lots of creative ideas were flowing and it was an awesome show all around.

Loved meeting a lot of new vendors and said hello to some old friends. All in all, it was a great way to spend the day and I'm thrilled to be a part of such a creative and vibrant community!

Big thanks to CJ from Charlie Juliet for the pro pix of my work! Lovely seeing you!!

hello darlings!

I know I've left you all hanging a very long time, but it's been a really busy couple of months! We sold our old apartment, took on a HUGE renovation of a new apartment and are finally trying to get ourselves settled and up and running in a new space.

Life is blissful. Ginger is going to be 20 months on Christmas Day - where has the time gone? I'm loving beinga mom and she is turning into quite the little sidekick I always dreamed to have.

Hoping everyone is well and promise to check in here and there. In the meanwhile, feel free to follow me on Pinterest. I'm usually found there with whatever free time I have to share new ideas.

real wedding: Jillian + Josh

So excited to announce our latest wedding is up on Green Wedding Shoes today! The bride, Jillian actually found me after emailing Jenny, the editor there for Event Designers in the NYC area and I'm so glad she did.

From the moment I met Jillian, planning and bringing her ideas to life was truely one of my favorite events ever. She was obsessed with everything vintage, especially when it came to garden accents and Anthropologie! Were we destined to meet or what??

Here's just a few of the amazing photos - I promised to post some more in the coming weeks! Special thanks to my partners in this event, the floral team at Quatre Coeur. Ruth and Amanda were instrumental in planning all the beautiful details of this event from day one. It was a true collaboration between their team and mine!

birth announcements: ginger

I just got Ginger's Birth Announcements back from our printer and am so excited to get them out in the mail. I love, love, LOVE how they turned out.

Letterpress printed on 660gsm Crane Lettra Pearl White Stock in 3 PMS colors. I paired the final announcements with coordinating color envelopes from Paper-Source. Half of our address list is getting Poppy Envelopes and the other half is getting Pool Envelopes.

Especially in love with how the overlap turned out! Hoping to have the opportunity to do more 3-color jobs in the future. These were so much fun to work on and a great way to welcome our little lady into the world!


P.S. Since so many people have asked, here's the font we used for her name. It's called Breathe Pro.
