Matt and Ashley are such an awesome couple and I am so excited to start working with them on their rustic vintage-inspired wedding at the Bernardo Winery next June! If it is anything like these two, it is going to be a.maz.ing!
Last weekend, one of my favorite weddings to date came to life. A vintage, backyard wedding filled to the brim with sweet handmade details. I cannot wait to share it with you! You won't have to wait long- it will be featured on the Wedding Chicks on monday.
In the meantime, they have posted a sneak peak photo on their main page. It is on the right side right under WC Brides. A little teaser of one of the cute details: mason jars holding their signature drink: "sweetheart lemonade".
Be sure to check Wedding Chicks on monday. Just wait until you see the gorgeously stylish bride and their beautiful intimate backyard celebration.
In other exciting news... be on the look out for our new website and blog launch next week! I am so so so excited to share our new look with you.
I have been a long time fan of Lisa Leonard Designs. Lisa and I met back when I was a little high schooler and it has been so fun to see her business grow and her style develop over the years. She has a great blog- full of inspiration for the everyday and showcasing her adorable jewelry designs. I have a few of her pieces and I wear them all the time. Literally- look at my wrist at every wedding and you'll see a bracelets that she designed for me. It says "joyful" and reminds me of my purpose and motivation for every day of my life.
Today, she posted THE cutest necklace. It would be such a great gift for an engagement party or bridal shower.
Oh, I just love it!
You can find lots of other goodness on Lisa's site. One of my brides had custom necklaces made as a gift for each of her bridesmaids. My sister in law gifted us with a personalized silver spoon for my son. I even had Lisa custom make a decal that I attached to an iphone case for my husband. Endless options.
Sorry I disappeared from the blog world for a week and a half there... Two big weddings and a midweek camping trip with my family stole me away from my computer. I am back now and have some great inspiration and weddings to share with you!

One of our September brides, Michelle, is super creative and crafty. One of the first things we bonded over was our love for our Cricuts. At our design meeting, she pulled out her inspiration for her save the dates and we got to chat about ideas on how she could bring her vision to life.
