rubber stamps.

i absolutely love creating brands
whether for my own wedding or others that i'm working on 
they can be used in so many different ways to personalize favors, invites, banners, etc.
i think they highlight that the wedding day is celebrating this specific couple
and they really stand out as a unique detail

one of my favorite resources for this is rubberstamps.
you send them an image that you've scanned in of your brand or monogram 
and they cut a stamp using that image.
awesome, no?
my favorite part is that you can keep using it after the wedding is over-
i still use ours to sign our name to something or stamp the back of an envelope we're sending
it'll last forever and always remind you of your big day.

if you are thinking of creating a stamp for your wedding, definitely check them out!

hope your tuesday is just lovely.

venue thursday.

i know this is a-(nother) california venue, but it's also one of my all time favorites
i found it when i was looking for venues for our wedding but it was too far from home
i swear, every wedding i see at this place is to-die-for
feast away beauties:

acres and acres of land for ceremony, reception and photos?
rustic old farmhouse filled to the brim with antiques
-that can sleep your wedding party?
yes please.

wedding profile: riley and kimberly.

it's about 70 days or so out now for a wedding i'm doing in colorado 
and i am getting so so excited to put everything together for this amazing couple
originally we had planned on doing a sort of rustic/vintage inspired affair with lots of candlelight and some tree inspiration here and there...

well we've kept the candlelight but now the wedding has become much more whimsical- incorporating green leaves all over, hanging flowering trees for their backdrop and moss, lots and lots of it.
almost like a midsummer night's dream (without costumes-that might be taking it a little too far)
now the theme has become a dreamy, vintage, lace, tree inspired extravaganza and i cannot wait to share the final product with all of you once its all put together. 

here is their inspiration board i've been working on via pinterest

and the lovely couple:

i'm totally stoked to work with the killer wedding photography duo of weheartphotography on riley and kimberly's big day. these two deserve such a special day, they are two wonderful and humble people who are just beside themselves to get to spend the rest of their lives with each other.
how cute are they!?!? and how incredible is her ring? (an antique 1920s dream!)

i'll definitely be sharing projects this summer as i gear up for their august nuptials-so keep an eye out for some DIY action!
have a lovely tuesday!
