I have been meaning to post pictures of this gorgeous Interfaith wedding since July when it was featured on Snippet & Ink and on Maharani Weddings. The details of Gabrielle's Italian heritage and Samir's Indian culture are blended seamlessly by the talented team at Firefly Events.
Flat printing is exactly what it sounds like, flat. While this is not as glitzy as Foil Stamp or Letterpress it is usually a lot more affordable. I think it is ideal for something like a wedding program or a menu. There are two types of "flat printing" commonly used, "Offset Printing," or "Digital." Which is better? Well, it depends on what you are doing and most importantly, how many pieces you are printing.
Geyserville, California, a teeny but picturesque town in Sonoma county is a living reminder of California's history with both the healing powers of hot water (geyser-ville) and wine. Centered in the middle of town is Catelli's, an institution since 1936. This delicious, farm fresh, Italian inspired restaurant serves both locals and tourists with their culinary fare. I have had the pleasure of eating there on more than one occasion, and I can hardly wait to return. Recently the restaurant has added to its offerings, by building a stunningly beautiful event space, designed by our friends Josh and Rafi of FORM. With the addition of the incredibly beautiful outdoor patio, this little (and fab) restaurant has elevated itself to a true destination. Proving that a wine country wedding doesn't have to be rustic.
Recently I had the pleasure of working with Laurel of Esla Events on the stunning Sonoma, California vineyard wedding of Nicole and Myron. Even though I was just a small part of the whole event, they were wonderful to work with. It was immediately apparent that this was a loving and close-knit family. Thank you Nicole & Myron for letting me be a part of your day!
Vivian and Matt were married in Rhinebeck, New York (Upstate) at a beautiful farm, complete with lush meadows and a rustic barn. Glamorous details of the table settings paired effortlessly with the natural woods and fields of the farm. "One part cozy and another part chic," says Style Me Pretty.
Sara & George were married last August in a colorful celebration at the exquisite River Farm (formerly owned by George Washington, yes, that George Washington) in Alexandria Virginia. Working with the bride and her fabulous planners Amber and Emily of Karson Butler Events was a dream. Sara was my favorite type of bride- one that plans WAAAAY ahead!
Last fall I was honored to be a part of a gorgeous La Jolla beach wedding, planned and designed by the incredible Vanessa Van Wieren of Alchemy Fine Events . The wedding was not your typical "beachy" soiree. Yes, there were shells. Yes, there was sand. But what glamorous sand and shells they were! Shimmery sequins rippled throughout the room, echoing the sea. Oversized origami, and individual paper cranes artfully scattered throughout gave the event a subtle Asian flair. What a night!
In 2011 while Mr. M and I were vacationing in Paris, we strolled crossed the Seine, and noticed a proliferation of padlocks adorning the chain-link fence of the bridge. The idea is that you write your name and that of your true love on the lock, attach it to the bridge, then fling the key in to the river. A tangible symbol of your undying and unbreakable love. Since then I have discovered that this romantic gesture has turned in to a worldwide trend, uniting lovers and causing headaches for city preservationists from LA to China.
