VAL *our starfish queen*

val was one of our most favorite clients to date. we worked with her for almost one full year, and did everything
“paper” for her wedding…from save the dates, to custom labels for her “welcome” market trays for out of town guests.
we never got to meet her groom, rob…but we sure loved getting to know his sweet bride!

the color palatte for val and rob was very fun, and we loved their whimsical style. with teal blue and pops of blossom
pink, we were able to use much creativity in the design. our favorite part (that was used on each paper piece) was the
hand – drawn starfish with their whimsical initials on either side. we also loved the cute “booklet” programs – teal books
with a pocket at the back – we found the *perfect* pink and teal tissues to tuck in to the pocket…and they couldn’t have
been a better match.

the wallaces were married on april 18…and we already miss seeing val on a regular basis. congratulations val + rob!

Brett and Cristel




We loved working with brett and cristel calvin…who were married on may 2 at a private
residence in downtown san diego. they were such an elegant and adorable couple!

Their wedding reception was small and intimate; shades of creams and whites with lots
of beautiful candlelight. we designed a scripty custom monogram for them, and incorporated
that monogram on the personalized menus, custom signage and the wine bottle favor tags.
They also loved the vintage elegance of lace…so we used actual lace with hand sewn
sequin detail for the table numbers and “welcome” signs.

Here are a few photos from their lovely reception…and their adorable thank you card! we
loved this picture of them walking…it will be mounted to their thank you card – the front of
the card – with their custom monogram and “thank you” printed on to the photo.

Congratulations, brett & cristel!
