It is always a pleasure working with the ladies of EU, and this time it was no different. As many of you may know I have a love for all things PAPER! I first approached EU with the idea of creating three different concepts using Envelopments as the basis for our themes. I find that a lot of the times my brides get so caught up in having to have a specific “theme” for their wedding that they forget how to simply enjoy the process.
The wonderful thing about working with Envelopment products is that you can create your entire color concept and even wedding theme with a card stock pattern. From the design of your tables to the details on the cake. This photo shoot was challenging but so rewarding. It allowed me to work with some great vendors and show couples out there how to pull together an entire design using paper as your inspiration.
This photo shoot was published in the latest issue of Utterly Engaged’s online magazine. Please check out the inspirational, creative, and original work below! To read the entire article and Issue #13, please click here.

*Sneak Peak picture off my Black Berry. Another Arte Crisol creation. George proposed to Caryn right on that bench on a walking trail next to the ocean in Orange County. The couple gave us a picture taken of that very spot and Nuvia was able to paint that exact place. Free lance graphic designer Paper Cut Industries and products by Envelopements.
Custom Wedding invitations designed by Peach Mail Box. When Christina first approached me she loved the idea of having a painting done just like the one we did for Melissa + Bernie’s wedding. Her wedding would be taking place at the LA River and Garden Center as well but her style was more reflective of the rod iron doors and historic buildings.
Gamie created this custom invite with vintage design that reflected both the clients and the venues needs. You can view more photos on Just Peachy Blog. Nuvia of Arte Crisol created a custom painting for them to display at the wedding reception which was also used as the front cover of their wedding invitations. Can’t wait to see the professional shots of the wedding in the meantime enjoy the little sneak peak picture off my trusty black berry.
If ever two people were meant to spend the rest of their lives together, these two are it. I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun at a wedding. Raul of R&R kept the music going till the lights went on, and then some. We even managed to get in the action for the last song.
Everything about Ronnie and Briana was special, from the very first moment I met them both there was this calmness that Ronnie brought to Briana’s life. Briana’s mom was involved in every step of the way making their commitment ceremony a memorable one for both of them. Briana’s father beamed with joy and welcomed Ronnie with open arms into their family. I’ve never been a part of a group of people so overwhelmed with love and support for two individuals. I was honored to be a part of their celebration.
I’m thrilled to share with you the lovely pictures that Red Loft Studio captured that day. It was such a pleasure working with them. I love when Long Beach vendors come together to make special days come to fruition. My trusty partner in crime Deanne of Bella Fiore provided the beautiful floral arrangements, NOZZA Press and Paper Cut Industries created all the wedding stationery and lastly the yummy cake was made by Rossmoore Pastries.

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 4×5 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.
