Time is flying by, the 2019 wedding season has already begun but I had to share a few inspirational planning photos from this 2018 southern California Wedding Reception. These photographs by Jason Q Tran are stunning…I was super lucky to be a part of this very talented vendor crew:
There’s so much creativity that goes along with planning a wedding or event. You can choose a specific theme or add in one unique personal touch. I love the new ‘bar stations’ that are popping up on many Pinterest planning boards; from the make-your-own-drink and pour-your-own beer bars, to the donut and popcorn bars [just to name a few]. All you need is a great way to display your favorite beverage, dessert or snack, along with some lovely signage and you’re set to impress your guests!
*there are too many fun ideas to showcase 🙂 see below for more inspiration:
While searching for a past clients wedding day photos, I came across these stunning images …thank you social media! Congrats to Andie & Augie, married on September 10, 2016 at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, California. [photography by Mémoire Studio].
We customized my square, booklet-style pocket folder invitation suite by incorporating their navy, blush & beige theme colors. For the reception stationery, we picked up all the design details from the invites onto the menus, seating cards, and program fans (Andie tied her own ribbon embellishment onto the fan sticks)! I also love that we added the gold-glitter card stock to the escort tent cards & menus, a very glamorous touch.
And finally, they requested a unique guest book alternative [Wed-Libs], which we also personalized to match the rest of their stationery design! Check out the various wedding Mad Libs ideas via Pop-Sugar; [14 Free, Fun, and Printable Wedding Mad Libs].
I’m excited to be a part of the wedding showcase at The University Club of San Francisco! I personalized my SF Invite suite to match the event theme colors + I’ll be raffling off my city skyline save the date postcards! *find tickets at link below

Congrats to Kate & TJ, married May 7th 2016 at the University Club of San Francisco!
I designed their full stationery suite from the save the dates to invites, and finally reception cards. I’m so thrilled that they sent me a few gorgeous photos from their big day to showcase!
After their save the dates were sent out [see below], Kate & TJ wanted to customize my SF city skyline wedding invitation suite. We changed the paper colors and fonts, and moved the skyline to the top of the 5×7 invite card.
We also carried on this design style & paper color combo for their reception stationery; table signs, large format program, and 2-layer escort tent cards!
Congrats to Michelle & Raphael, married on August 22, 2015 in Santa Monica, California!
Uyen, from Sassy Girl Weddings, first asked me to design their Save the Date postcards incorporating blush & gold colors. For the reception at Casa Del Mar, we needed glamorous stationery to complement the venue and the couple’s romantic theme. Below are just a few stunning photos [by Sun & Sparrow] showcasing not only the escort, table & menu cards printed on soft blush metallic finish paper with dark gold ink accents, but some incredible inspiration of Uyen’s wedding planning expertise!
The Oscars may be this coming weekend, but we’re already celebrating our own award: this year’s bride in The Knot Dream Wedding, Asha Joyce, chose Papercake Designs to create her darling football-themed save the dates (she’s marrying NFL player Devon Still).
Read about Asha’s design on The Knot blog, then head to Etsy to create your own sports ticket save the date or invite — Papercake has two options for custom designed tickets, printed for you (with envelopes) and digital DIY (you can print at home or local printer).
Congrats to Michelle & Kevin, married on September 19, 2015 at The Generals Daughter in Sonoma, California. I can’t get over how gorgeous all the colors came together in these amazing photos by Rebecca Gosselin Photography.
When I met with Michelle, I was so excited to utilize her fun color palette when designing her custom invitations into a unique, art deco styled suite. I also created a ‘Great Gatsby’ themed monogram to use throughout their stationery (see matchbook & cuff links too!). Everything really came together beautifully by combining the stunning bouquets [by Fantasy Flowers] with the wedding day coordination [A Savvy Event]. I had to find time to showcase just a few of my favorite photos for your planning inspiration! 😉
