Versace for H&M?!

Wow, this trend of high fashion designers releasing lines for more affordable retail outlets is incredible. I hope it continues. Versace is the latest to announce a new line for H&M that will hit stores on November 17th with prices from about $200 - $400 (still a serious price tag but not in comparison to their typical retail prices). They also have a selection of accessories and a men's line. Get ready for similar "Missoni for Target" madness!

Signed, Sealed and Stamped!

We have a few weddings coming up that we are guests at and I'm always trying to think of unique, memorable gifts that will stand apart from the typical glass vase (not that those aren't lovely). One fun idea for a bridal shower might be these great custom stamps from Paper Source. The designs are really fun and it's such a useful gift for the bride and groom...especially with all of those thank you cards! A custom stamp is also a cost effective way to save on envelope printing when sending out save the dates or invites and then you can continue to use it after the wedding.

Stamp Champ offers the option of sending in your own artwork to create a stamp that can match any stationery you'd like. I love the idea of having your return address specially designed for you and then turned into a stamp that can be used over and over.

MARRIED:: Veronica & Adam

I love this wedding so much. It started off on the beach, in the sand and ended up at the top of Heavenly Resort, in the snow of Lake Tahoe. All of the beautiful pictures were shot by Courtney Wilson Photography and tell the story of a really magical day. Veronica and Adam added so many personal touches to their day and we had the pleasure of designing the invitations that incorporated the subtle love bird theme and turquoise and orange accents. My favorite moment had to be when the gorgeous bride and her groom were kissing and playing in the snow and my favorite detail is definitely...the shoes!!

MARRIED:: Jen & Kevin

Would you like to see a completely DROOL-WORTHY wedding? Just take a look at the pictures below from The Prado at Balboa Park. This was a wedding that we worked on last summer, but since we just started this blog recently, I had to dig it up and showcase it again. Once you look at the pictures, you will understand. Coordinated by Susan Duffy from Crown Weddings and photographed impeccably by Parris Studios, Jen and Kevin designed a true fairytale event that overflowed with the most stunning flowers by Karen Tran Florals. We had the honor of not only attending this soiree, but also designing the save the dates, invitations, table numbers, seating cards, gobo, and programs. Even with all these incredible details, Jen completely stole the show with her fitted gown and elegant updo. The last picture really sums it up....could they look any happier??
