Branding Crush {Moomah}

November 4th, 2009 @ 12:23 pm by Wiley Valentine

I first spotted this amazing branding over at Unruly Things (a fabulous blog read FYI). The company behind this design genius for Moomah is Apartment One. The whimsical style of this branding is so brilliant! It’s completely reflective of a child’s imagination which is a perfect match for Moomah, a café/art studio for kids + adults. I love the concept of this place - a sustainable café offering fun organic food, an environment that promotes creativity, and a place for kids + adults to explore their imagination. Sign me up!

About Sabrina & Eunice @ Hello! Lucky

We are sure there is, in some peoples’ minds, the assumption that the perfect English wedding should be held in mid-summer with small bridesmaids in pink voile running over emerald green, sun-dappled lawns, bright roses on the tables, food and cake a-plenty and all to the sound of laughter and clink of champagne flutes (or - to each their own - beer glasses!).

The August wedding of Sarah McKee and Patrick Barry didn’t disappoint on any of the above.

Dana + Rob; Married!

November 3rd, 2009 @ 6:25 pm by Punam Bean

Yes. My job is pretty amazing. Most weekends, I embark upon a unique journey with a uniquely in love couple, and I get to share in all the joy, excitement and anticipation. Somedays I just feel like I’m on the verge of tears all day long, because there is just so much love coursing through everyone that I am in an ocean of it. Dana and Rob are amazing. I had SUCH a great time! Yay!

An extra special thanks to Stacy Reeves who made the trip all the way from Dallas to second shoot for me!

thetreasuredpetal's Picture
Kristin Brancaleone, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA Vendor: Floral Designer Website: The Treasured Petal About Me: The Treasured Petal is a reflection of my love for scrumptious flowers, yummy textures, colors, ribbons, and all the other girly splurges that being a florist allows me to enjoy on a daily basis. Although I don't discriminate when it comes to flowers, my two favorites would have to be cattleya orchids and gloriosa lilies, which I carried in a ginormous bouquet on my wedding day. When I'm not crafting wedding florals and consulting with brides, I am usually at the dog park with my dogs Pesto and Basil, cooking healthy vegan dinners, watching Seinfeld with my husband Joe, at Bible study, or scouring craigslist for antique furniture to fill up my new house. I am also kind of a home-body and really love sipping tea in my pajamas while working my way down my google reader blog list!

Oh Husband of Mine!

Last month, Joe came to do a job that none of us gals wanted to do. I felt like this was a man’s job, so I called on the best guy I know.

Here he is in action, placing three floating floral rafts in their designated spots.

The shallow end was no biggie…

About Sarah @ Parrott Design Studio

I hope you all had a fun weekend! If you are like me, then you are filled to capacity with sweets. My sister and her husband, along with my parents’ never-ending supply of Halloween props, threw a fantastic Halloween party on Friday night. Halloween was always an extravagant affair that took months of planning around the Parrott household. Each year the four of us spent September coming up with bigger, better, and scarier ideas than the last for our party. My father would transform our garage into a haunted house and my mother would create spooky vignettes throughout the room. My sister and I would design & deliver the invitations to everyone in our neighborhood. We would also map out the haunted “walk” which was a ghost tour {always led by yours truly} through our backyard, around our house, through the front yard, & back to the garage. Everyone went all-out for the event. My father would build a tunnel leading out of the back door of the garage into the backyard, fill it with strobe lights, spider webs, and dry ice, leaving a small opening where he could jump out and scare people. One year our neighbor built a life-size coffin and played Dracula for years. Our shed became a mausoleum. The garden became a graveyard. One year a friend of my father’s dressed as a fencer and stood on top of our picnic table swashing his sword and laughing like a crazy man. To this day he remains the scariest in our cast of characters.

Dear Nancy

…Not to be snarky, but can you please explain why my florist charged $250 for a bouquet of peonies when I found an eight stem bunch at Whole Foods that very same week for $12.99?

Alison + Scott; Enaged!

November 2nd, 2009 @ 3:56 pm by Punam Bean

It was one of my favorite sessions in Brooklyn. I’ll be returning to Maui to shoot Allison and Scott’s wedding in the mystical lands of Hana. I am always excited, but getting to do an engagement session when I haven’t gotten to meet the couple first, well, I planned it this way, but it just astounds me sometime how much I love my clients. The people that hire me, even the people who I don’t meet when they hire me, we always seem to just mesh.

We took a stroll around their ‘hood in Brooklyn, it was so relaxed and casual and just plain fun. Hahaha, at one point I had them chase geese while holding hands, running and screaming. I had hoped to get the geese to take off, but I forgot that we are in New York City. And even the local animals (Canadian Geese, mind you) are SO New York. They merely waddled calmly away, and left us all with the giggles. After I hung out at their place for a while, and we spoke of our love for our dear kitties. Kitties are a force in this world that unite people, and I enjoyed every moment of my time with this gorgeous, amazing, stylish, fun couple of people. To Maui!!

Allison and Scott

About Melody @ Sweet and Saucy Shop

This past Tuesday night I had the pleasure of working with some of the very best in the wedding industry as we put on a Halloween Bash! Since I am a little raced on time today I am borrowing Carissa’s, from JL Designs, info from her site! Here’s how she describes the fabulous night…

When yelena johnson of the stylish soiree and i decided we wanted to throw a fun halloween party for about 40-50 people it started off very small scale…but once we started tweeting it, the guest count quickly grew to over 150 people! and we just figured the more the better! let them come… :)

The initial design concept was kind of a playful vintage but as we got closer to the event and we kept finding new inspirations, it definitely morphed into something a bit more gothic, a bit more victorian and a bit darker…for the florals and decor pieces, i knew i wanted to go with all muted, lifeless colors…nothing bright or vibrant…and almost all of the vessels, candlesticks, platters, gravy boats, frames, mirrors, etc. were thrifted in order to keep an authentic, vintage feel…

I REALLY loved how everything turned out and just hours before the party began, the clouds rolled in, the wind got CRAZY (hello blackouts!) and it made for a perfect, eerie halloween setting…

The incredible photos are the the uber talented Meg Perotti! They are beyond gorgeous! Thanks you, thanks you!
