[real san francisco wedding] naomi & kevin

2012.10.20 Naomi Evarts & Kevin Hurley Wedding Contract

Thanks to photographer Gustavo Fernández [along with naomi], I’m able to share these wonderful wedding day photos & planning inspiration! I loved customizing my san francisco skyline invitation to complement their venue location (we replaced the bay bridge with the golden gate bridge). They also personalized the metallic paper colors to match their color theme.

San Francisco Skyline Wedding Invitation

OH MY GOSH!  I’m Super excited about the monogram on the cupcakes!! ;)

2012.10.20 Naomi Evarts & Kevin Hurley Wedding Contract

We used Kara’s cupcakes (I’ve always been a huge fan of their cupcakes, so it worked perfectly to have them for our wedding). They will do the custom monogram for $1 per cupcake, and they have those cute six-inch cakes so you can still “cut the cake” but serve your guests cupcakes too. (At one point, our youngest flower girl was storing cupcakes in her flower girl basket) :) ~naomi

I assisted in designing & printing the wedding programs, but Naomi made her own CD wedding favors & escort cards to match!

Everything came together beautifully… and what a gorgeous venue [the Clubhouse at the Presidio Golf Course, San Francisco] and of course, a gorgeous couple! Congrats!

[photography] turn your photos into art

printcopia

I love the look of canvas on my walls. And of course an easy DIY project … like wrapping my leftover handmade paper on blank canvas to give or keep as unique wall art. [fyi: I use a staple gun though, instead of mod podge].

[tech style] wedding party app…for the guest photos

Wedding Party

So, yes… the professional photographer should always be the main artist focused on the couples’ very important photos… BUT… what a great idea this app is for the guests! They can capture all those random moments the bride & groom miss during the cocktail, dinner & reception hours. Love it… check out all the benefits too! Have you used it yet??

[wedding favor] custom soaps

Oh my… I’m loving this idea of customizing the scent & design for your own soap [to give as a wedding favor or for any special event]. Meow Meow Tweet, an organic soap, body care and soy candle making company, personalized these small half bars for each client with special wrapping that fit the aesthetic and feel of each wedding!
