Changes are happening here at Bunch Studio… as I have been mentioning, for some time, behind the scenes. Can’t wait for you to see!

Our busy wedding season is slowly winding down with a few more lovelies here and there… the fun whimsical wedding of the crafty hands behind Petit Plume.. a lovely outdoor fete in Malibu with Miss Sassy Girl.. an elegant soiree at the W San Francisco with Zoie Events. Not to mention a few parties to design. Yes, we are quite excited for what’s to come.

We just came back from Kings Canyon… it was a much needed visit with the wilderness. Our annual, perhaps LAST tent camping extravaganza for a while (as most of us are planning on starting families soon) (no, not us)… just love the sound of rushing rivers, native birds, snapping twigs… sigh. However, did not love the active bats in the dark, nor the dozen bug bites I ended up with. But well worth it. Also saw a baby bear perched atop some large boulders in the middle of our hike… it was magical… the quick second I stopped to look, but instantly shook off my curiosity and noted how extremely dangerous it is to be within sight of a baby bear. Anyway…

Have a great week!!!

Aids LifeCycle


I wanted to share that the husband N and our two friends Pedro & Kaz have returned home from their 7 day bike ride with the Aids Life Cycle. I am beyond thrilled that they are home safe and sound, but even more so, just amazed by their ability to accomplish such as task. My heros!!! Here are some highlights of the event:

  • 10th anniversary
  • 7 days – over 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles
  • Nearly 3,000 participants in the ride
  • Roadies who are volunteers for the entire week, help with transportation, meals, campsites, rest stops, EVERYTHING. How amazing! I think I would like to do this if and when N does his next ride.
  • Most money raised ever in the history of the ride: $13 million!
  • Safest ride ever in its history (least injuries / accidents)

Thanks to everyone who donated and supported. What an amazing community and event. I am star stuck. Below: a photo of N and our buddy Kaz on day 5, the ‘red day’ where everyone wears red (dresses) off the website:

N’s wedding boutonniere was caught seen on Elizabeth Anne Designs wedding blog.

It is a rather dashing image if I do say so myself.

Before January ends

I wanted to share these photos by Jeff Almquist of my New Year’s window display at The Wedding Pantry. Thanks Jeff for the pics!

Winter Wonderland

Here is the inspiration board for my mother & F’s winter wonderland themed wedding come January.

We are going for silver, blue and ivory hues. Accents of pearls and crystal, with tulle and velvet to soften it up. For flowers I hope to use casablanca lilies, grape hyacinth, hydrangea, baby’s breath, silver brunia, dusty miller, and anemones and peonies if they are still around in a month. White roses would have been lovely for this but alas, white roses are on her no go list. Of course it wouldn’t be that easy right? Below is the invitation suite I created for them, using silver & pearl shimmer stock, flocked paper, embossed silver graphics, rhinestones & pearl accents:

it’s thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving, world. Gratefulness is contagious… what are you thankful for? It has been one amazing year, I tell you. the list of what i am thankful for can go on and on, really.

my life is good. i am so lucky and grateful. thank you!
