Infographic Wedding Stationary

April 10th, 2013 by Karen Pan | Comment

One our brides this year introduced me to the wonderful world of infographics! If you are not familiar with infographics, they are graphic visual representations of information or data. And they are perfect for any wedding stationary like invitations, maps and even seating charts. You can tell the story of how you met using a timeline or flow chart. Or how about a decorative venn diagram to show the common (and uncommon) interests you have with one another. Here are some of our favorite wedding infographics that you will also swoon over.

Spring is in the air! Flowers are in bloom, birds are chirping and the days are getting longer. And with Easter just around the corner we thought what better way to mark the season than a spring inspired wedding celebration. Lush flowers, soft palettes, and outdoor ceremonies are the perfect way to celebrate this gorgeous holiday!

Seema and DJ: Los Altos History Museum

March 20th, 2013 by Karen Pan | Comment

Seema and DJ were such a fun couple to work with. They had their traditional Indian wedding celebration on Saturday and asked us to help them with their American-style wedding reception on Sunday at the Los Altos History Museum. The bride who is from Georgia wanted to incorporate rustic charm of the South like sweet breads, coke bottles and floating gardenias along with their Indian culture. Guest feasted on a buffet of Indian favorites and mouth-watering dessert display. Ever detail reflected the couple, and they even incorporated their love for cricket using the red balls as table numbers. It was beautiful evening full of bright colors, bold tastes and unforgettable memories. Congratulations Seema and DJ!


I “Heart” Long Tables

February 19th, 2013 by Karen Pan | Comment

Over the years my love for long, rectangular banquet tables have grown more and more. Not only do long tables allow for more intimacy among guests, but they also add some edge to your wedding reception decor. On their own, they give a dramatic effect and sense of royalty to the event design but when mixed with rounds or square tables they create a unique visual effect. The lengthy surface allows for many decor options like flower arrangements of varying heights and table runners for additional color and texture. Whether your theme is vintage, modern or classic, the result is always stunning, elegant and practical.

Alright, all you love birds, here’s a fun Valentine’s Day shoot to inspire your own great day. Now Valentine’s Day can be celebrated with your special someone or a group of your closest girlfriends. We teamed up with the talented Erica B Photography and set the scene for a perfect girls-only gathering. Inspired by the beautiful  runner, we pulled in shades of yellow, orange and forest green to compliment the more popular V-Day colors of ruby red and light pink.  Add some simple refreshments and hors d’oeuvres… and Voilà, you have the perfect setting for a festive get together! Hope you make this Valentine’s a special one with your loved ones.
