Chi & Michael - Aruba Wedding & Houston, Texas Reception

Chi contacted me about a year before their wedding.  Also an event coordinator herself, she was familiar with the colors and had in mind the design she wanted.  Chi and Michael had a destination wedding in the beautiful Aruba and then an at home reception the following week.  For the Aruba wedding, they chose fun and beachy colors with turquoise and limes accented by honeydew pink.  Going a little more formal for the reception, their theme was sapphire blue and crystals.  It was fun coming up with their design and a pleasure working with them both.

Lan & Avinash - Houston, Texas Wedding

My sister, Lan, finally got married last June.  Boy, was it a complete year of planning.  I've never planned a wedding before and props go out to all the wedding planners out there!  I got married in 2006 here in Houston, but I lived in Phoenix at the time and I flew here, spent 2 weeks and booked all my vendors.  For me, it was that easy!  Being the only sister of the bride, of course I went to the majority of the appointments, help in the decision making and keep her from getting stressed out.  Lan and Avi had a dream of all dream weddings...from the surprise engagement (awesome job Avi!) to actually getting married on their 6th year anniversary of dating.  And by being related to yours truly, they had the pick of picks when it came to their stationery.  After a few trial combo of colors, Lan finally chose an assortment of graphite grays, silver, deep plums and fuchsia for her color palette accented by damask and crystals.  This wedding was all about the details.  Save the dates magnets, invitations suites, programs, place cards, table numbers, seating chart, floor plan, monogram and thank you cards completed their entire package.

To top this wedding off even more, The Knot Texas picked up this wedding to be featured in their Spring 2012 edition.  Not only was I super excited for my sis and brother-in-law, I was excited to be mentioned in this amazing magazine!

I love my sister with all of my heart and would do anything for her.  Avi, you have truly complemented her in every way and have made her one of the happiest people I know.  Congrats on one of the most beautiful weddings ever.  Photos by the amazing Ashley K.

Kathleen & Sherwin - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Wedding

This is one of my favorite boarding pass designs.  Kathleen and Sherwin got married this past weekend and Kathleen was very specific and detailed when it came to her wedding stationery.  She knew exactly what she had in mind when describing to me by email all her thoughts and ideas from her boarding pass invite to her tote bags as well as wedding program scrolls.  She thought of everything for her guests and even gave pashminas away as favors.  

This was a design that was printed on tote bags for their wedding guests to carry around beach towels, personal items and souveniers.

Christian turns 3

My nephew Christian turned three last August and his mom wanted to do a race car theme.  Not the Disney/Pixar's Car theme...just a generic car theme.  Boy was it an awesome party.  There was a refueling drink station with oil pans in case the sweet tea or lemonade dripped.  A car door with the number three painted in the backyard.  Cupcake toppers had personalized license plates.  And then an awesome car birthday cake!  Wow, what a lucky little dude!  A pretty cute one at that.  Here are the invites that went out to many guests in anticipation of this (as his mom would say) party.

Shay & Samuel - Houston, Texas Wedding

When I met with Shay, she already knew her color scheme and wanted something that had that old vintage feeling.  The original design was good, but she wanted something a little more grand.  She ended up with this large 7 x 7 pocketfold invite to wow her guests.  I loved this vintage design created for Shay and Samuel.  Enjoy!
