Great things can come in small packages.  Let me tell you why I love working with Envlopments products so much.  You don't ever have to sacrifice style for cost.  Kendra was one of those clients who would randomly stop by the studio just to see what new things we had recently made.  She browsed through the many invitation album books we carry and displays.  She knew she wanted something personalized to them but didn't know how to pull it all together. 

I know that it may be difficult for some couples to hear when I say "trust me, you'll love it" one thing I can assure any of my clients is that I don't just take notes on what you say, I really listen to what it is you are saying.  I'm not just a stationery designer I'm also a wedding planner so I understand what it is my clients are trying to achieve with their wedding invitations.  Pulling it all together is what I do.

To save on cost we went with a 4x5 Pocket fold and instead of having several inserts we combined the Map and Accommodations card into one.  The design was inspired by a note card Kendra had kept from her travels.  We were able to incorporate that design element throughout the invitations.  Another way we were able to cut down on cost is instead of layering the invitation with an additional card stock we created two borders within the design.  It creates the illusion have having a backing without the additional cost. The Pocket fold was then held together by a belly band that had their names and wedding date in front.

I had so much fun designing Melissa + Bernie's custom wedding invitations.  The inspiration for the design originated from the wedding venue Los Angeles River Center and Gardens in Los Angeles, CA.  I knew from the start I wanted to incorporate some elements of the architecture into the design.  I was also inspired by Rifle Paper Co. and new that I wanted to do something similar to that.  Lastly, what pulled it all together were the amazing linens by BBJ the minute I showed this table cloth to Melissa it was love at first sight.


Pulling all these elements into one invitation suite couldn't have happened without the help of my talented friends.  One of my childhood friends is not only a scientist but also an artist.  You can find her murals around the city walls or her art displayed in galleries.  Nuvia of Arte Crisol was able to bring this to life for us.  She captured every detail of the venue, the linens, the colors and both Melissa + Bernie's wedding attire.


Monica Majors of Paper Cut Industries, who is one of my primary graphic designers was then able to pull together all the elements from the painting and table cloths to design the rest of the stationery.   I love finding new ways to work with Envelopments products and decided that for this project we would do a booklet style invitation.

I'm so pleased with the results and Melissa guests can't stop raving about her invitations.  When guests arrived to the venue they immediately felt connected to the space because of the invitations.  I had her painting framed and we then displayed it at the entrance of the venue.  Not only did she have a unique invitation suite but also a painting as a keepsake.

This year has definitely been the year of warp speed planning.  Just a few months ago I received a call from Diana asking if I could plan a wedding in two months?  You read that correctly my friends, two months.  So the search began.  We were fortunate enough to book The Los Angeles Rive and Center Garden, where Melissa and Bernies wedding just took place.  That in itself was a miracle.  If you're not familiar with the River, this venue usually books 18 months in advance.  All the planning is complete, my studio is packed with all the decor, finalizing a few last minute details and we're ready for show time next week. 

I'm excited to share with you a few of their engagement photos that Jenny Park took.  Jenny is working on a new site, so unfortunately can't share her work with you just yet, but I will link back once it is up. (Link is up)

Melissa + Bernie's Wedding at the Los Angeles River and Garden Center this past weekend was by far one of my most favorite weddings ever.  I couldn't have imagined spending my holiday weekend anywhere else other than with Melissa and Bernie, no one parties better than these two.  

I want to thank Kristen and Rafael for introducing me to such a lovely couple.  From the very first consultation I knew that we would not only have a great time planning the wedding but we would definitely remain friends after the big day.  (I'm seeing her today, any excuse to keep her coming back)

Sunday's celebration at one of my favorite little hidden gems  Los Angeles River Center and Gardens could not have happened without the help of my partners in crime Deanne of Bella Fiore and Henry of Henry Chen Photography, this is one of many weddings The Wedding Clique will be working on together this year. 

This wedding is a perfect example of how you can use several colors without having it look like a skittles factory.  The focal point of the wedding were the Carlisle Lamour linens by BBJ Linens.  Everything from hand painted wedding invitations using that pattern, to all the table names, programs and signs were inspired by this table cloth.  

I feel honored and blessed to have been a part of such a special day.  What started out as an idea in my head and a year of planning all came to fruition.  The joy in Melissa's face when she saw it all put together is priceless.
