AndieAugieWeddingMemoire Studio

While searching for a past clients wedding day photos, I came across these stunning images …thank you social media! Congrats to Andie & Augie, married on September 10, 2016 at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, California. [photography by Mémoire Studio].

We customized my square, booklet-style pocket folder invitation suite by incorporating their navy, blush & beige theme colors. For the reception stationery, we picked up all the design details from the invites onto the menus, seating cards, and program fans (Andie tied her own ribbon embellishment onto the fan sticks)! I also love that we added the gold-glitter card stock to the escort tent cards & menus, a very glamorous touch.

And finally, they requested a unique guest book alternative [Wed-Libs], which we also personalized to match the rest of their stationery design! Check out the various wedding Mad Libs ideas via Pop-Sugar; [14 Free, Fun, and Printable Wedding Mad Libs].

After their save the dates were sent out [see below], Kate & TJ wanted to customize my SF city skyline wedding invitation suite. We changed the paper colors and fonts, and moved the skyline to the top of the 5×7 invite card.

We also carried on this design style & paper color combo for their reception stationery; table signs, large format program, and 2-layer escort tent cards!

Congrats to Michelle & Raphael, married on August 22, 2015 in Santa Monica, California!
STD_postcardMichelleUyen, from Sassy Girl Weddings, first asked me to design their Save the Date postcards incorporating blush & gold colors. For the reception at Casa Del Mar, we needed glamorous stationery to complement the venue and the couple’s romantic theme. Below are just a few stunning photos [by Sun & Sparrow] showcasing not only the escort, table & menu cards printed on soft blush metallic finish paper with dark gold ink accents, but some incredible inspiration of Uyen’s wedding planning expertise!

We created various reception stationery pieces for their big day; table & dessert tents, cocktail & dinner menus for frames, escort tents + seating cards for the place settings, along with welcome cards & thank you tags… all customized to match their invitation design. I really enjoy seeing that it all came together beautifully! (with thanks to their inventive event planner, Freida, too).

I was privileged to design their wedding reception stationery, which included the ceremony programs, edible favor labels, escort cards and table number tents. Their photographer, Heather Kincaid, recently sent me a few photos of these creations that were shot on the big day.

This past spring I designed a few stationery items for the The Ebell of Los Angeles’s 2nd

Congrats dar & col!!   *darlene was a diy pro! I provided the PDFs for her stationery designed & ready to print / assemble on her own. She based her wedding program on hilary & elizabeth’s layered program, but personalized the details to match her invite along with adding her own lace. **also, read more about her wedding invitations here!

[edible favors] all-in-one escort cards + macarons

Love this idea that Uyen at Sassy Girl Weddings organized for Kimie + Masa’s wedding… color-coded macaron escort cards: name on the front with table name / # on the back. The color denotes the food selection for each guest once placed at their table setting. The flags can either be label stickers wrapped around the toothpick or a piece of paper stuck together with reversible tape. The sign in the frame is super cute too!
