I was so excited to be a part of an amazing photoshoot put together by Luxe Events and featured in the newest Exquisite Weddings Magazine. The scene was set on the beach at La Jolla Shores with a table filled with vintage bottles, seashells, and gorgeous florals by Root 75. If you don’t know me I am slightly obsessed with seashells, bottles, vintage salt and pepper shakers and any tiny antique object that seems to hold stories in its worn edges and chipped paint. So this table was filled to the brim with details I love. I was excited to add a few finishing touches from invitations with vintage stamps and velvet ribbon to curled menus and a gold leafed directional sign stuck in the sand.
There are two things I love to make – custom wedding maps and gold-leafed signs. This map was short and sweet but a perfect addition to the invitation suite to help the guests find their way down the path to the beach. And this sign – I just love how it turned out. I gave the wood a vintage white wash and then hand gold-leafed the bride and grooms names on the wood.
Twinkle and Toast added her gorgeous calligraphy with love letters and place cards.
April and Aaron’s wedding took place at Cal A Vie – have you seen this venue?? It’s up in my neck of the woods and it is gorgeous!! They have a beautiful 400 year old chapel from Dijon, France. It was the perfect setting for this colorful wedding for April and Aaron of True Photography. April is an amazing watercolor artist and designer herself so it was fun to collaborate with her and the Amorology team on the day of paper products. Her color palette was full of reds, corals, pinks, bright green, aqua and gold! This combo was so much fun to work with.
Guests were greeted by an avocado and a homemade guacamole recipe at their seat!
There were touches of watercolor and summer throughout in custom signage. I love this one “A life without love is like a year without summer”.
My favorite part of this wedding was the escort card display! I created colorful flags in various shapes and designs with each guests name and seating assignment. Mixed in were solid and striped hand gold-leafed flags. It added such a fun touch of vintage glam and worked perfectly with the vintage boat that Amorology displayed them in.
The wedding was also featured in the latest issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine.
Be sure to check out their wedding video too by NR3 Video Productions – it shows why such a colorful wedding was a perfect fit for these two!

I had several fun projects in the recent issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine on newsstands now! There are a few real weddings, and some fun photoshoots that I will share with you over the next few days as they all deserve a little more of a story. A few of them are below to start things off. I designed the pink banner on the back of the trolley for the staff photo and some sweet signage for the gorgeous candy table shoot created by Christina from A Sweet Addition – have you seen her candy buffets? They are amazing!
I’m excited to have 3 projects featured in the new issue of San Diego Style Weddings magazine! Be sure to pick one up so you can see all the pretty details!
A tabletop full of gorgeous colors, carousel horses and pretty signs. Amorology Weddings asked me to create the custom paper details for this lovely display. It all came together so beautifully!
Jenna and Nick’s gorgeous winery wedding was also featured in this issue. They both share a passion for wineries which translated into every detail on their wedding day.
Jami and Eric’s vintage affair at the San Diego Botanical Gardens was filled with paper! Every detail from the invitation to the “sweet nectar” banner over the drink table was handmade to represent the couples love for nature and sweet details.
