Real Weddings: Linda & Scott May 2, 2014

Linda and Scott’s wedding was at one of the most breathtaking venues I have ever worked at: Nestldown in Los Gatos, CA.  The grounds are stunning, the fairy tale cottage is magical, the koi filled pond is serene. I could spend two weeks at the venue exploring all its nooks and crannies.  Linda and Scott are such an amazing couple and I was so honored to be a part of their day.  Many thanks to Jessica of Stout Photography for capturing all of these amazing images.  La Bocca Fina provided some of the best wedding food I’ve had and Cassie from Los Gatos DJ was such a pleasure to work with. Audrey from Botanica created simple yet elegant florals for the couple and Stef from Honey Paperie customized paper goods that fit perfectly with the overall theme of the wedding.  The bride was made beautiful by the amazing team of Renee and Leilani of Hello Glam.  The cake was provided by Edith Meyer Wedding Cakes and the whole day was captured on video by Matthew David Cinema.

Real Weddings: Christine & Dale May 20, 2014

Christine, Dale and I  worked together for a long time on their wedding so I couldn’t be more excited to see all of our hard work come together in one magical day for them.  The couple was married in a traditional Catholic ceremony at The Cathedral of the Blessed in Downtown Sac.  Then the guests took a short walk down to Elks Tower Ballroom for the reception while the couple was whisked around town in their Rolls Royce!  The guests were greeted to a room filled with fun tunes played by Steve from Function 45.  He kept the party going into the wee hours of the night!  The amazing dinner was catered by Crisp Catering and all the rentals came from Classic Party Rentals.  Audrey from Botanica created some breathtaking floral arrangements that sat upon tables dressed in linens from La Tavola and Dena from Throne Invitations created stunning paper goods for the perfect finishing touches on the tables.  Earlier in the day the bride was made beautiful by Christi Reynolds and her hair was done by the bride’s good friend Nancy. The scrumptious dessert table and wedding cake was done by Carissa from Sugar & Spice Specialty Desserts (those desserts FLEW off that table faster than Carissa could put them out!).  The whole day was captured by the amazing Carmen Salazar (who also provided the fun photo booth for the wedding!).

Tissue Paper Flowers

Today I experimented with making some tissue paper flowers.  I have a new style shoot in mind utilizing tons of these flowers so I decided to try them out first on my daughters Girl Scout Daisy troop.  Her troop will be marching in the Picnic Day Parade tomorrow so I made flowers to represent each of the petals in the Girl Scout Daisy.  Each petal has a flower that stands for one element of the Girl Scout Law.

To make them, I used tissue paper, pipe cleaners, wooden dowels, moss, glue and then printed out the little tags.

I folded 6-10 sheets of tissue paper like a fan, attached a pipe cleaner to the middle and then trimmed the edges of the paper to the petal shape I wanted.  Then I pulled each sheet of tissue paper toward the center, attached to a wooden dowel, attached the tag and viola!

And here is how they all came out!

Real Weddings: Melissa & AJ August 17, 2013

Melissa and AJ were one of the funnest couples I have worked with this year.  They both have such dynamic personalities and I loved them from the first day we met.  Beth from True Love Photo has done an amazing job of capturing their personalities on their wedding day just a few weeks ago. The couple was married at The Citizen Hotel in the Plaza Park Ballroom.  Their cocktail hour was in the swanky Scandal Lounge on the mezzanine level and then the reception was on the 7th floor Terrace Room with sweeping views of all of downtown Sacramento.  The Grange downstairs prepared the amazing food which included Bacon Grilled Cheese sandwiches and an amazing corn chowder for the first course of dinner.  La Tavola supplied the linens which set the color palate of silver, grey and a deep aubergine purple.  Shannon from Flourish did the gorgeous flowers while Shana Beals did the bride’s makeup and Hana Kim did the brides hair.  Karen’s Bakery made the scrumptious cake and Tom from Fretty’s DJ kept the guests dancing the whole night.  The pinnacle of the night? Slamson, the mascot for the Sacramento Kings crashing the wedding.  Check out the video:
