Deena & Mas {part 2}

Here are some more details from Deena & Mas’ wedding… I had a great time creating everything for this wedding! The stationery, the signage, the ‘guestbook’ which was a cherry blossom branch for guest thumb prints to go on, the hair accessories Deena adorned, the program fans… so many details into this special day. What fun. Thanks again Adrienne!!

Ceremony backdrop, we wanted something simple and fun, and not take away from the ocean view:

Flower girl head wreath:

A sprig of pink wax flower for each place setting:

We also created the dessert backdrop and dessert stands out of cups and plates! Cake & desserts by My Sweet & Saucy:

Their guest thumb prints cherry blossom of love:

Please check out Adrienne Gunde’s blog for the entire post on Deena & Mas’ wedding… and give her some blog love for the loveliness she captured for us.

Deena and Mas are the sweeeeeeeeetest couple, and they are so, SO cute together. I love them. 🙂 It warms my heart to see such happy photos from their wedding day. While I am not a personal fan of pinks galore, I do have to say we helped create a beautiful wedding with Deena’s vision. Not only did we do the flowers, but lots of details for the overall design… from the signage to the stationery, from the dessert table backdrop and dessert stands (out of plates and cups!)… it was a lot of fun to play with. Congrats to the Mr. & Mrs. Thank you for trusting me with your entire day. Here are some snippets, but be sure to check it all out here. Thank you Adrienne for your gorgeous photos as always!


Raspberry featured

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.


Queenie featured once again! + other updates!

Helloooooo…

I am honored that our Queen of Hearts photoshoot is featured once again, this time on The Recycled Bride, HERE. Just in time for Valentine’s Day 🙂 I think it’s a lovely inspiration piece for such a holiday. I find myself more and more in love with these images as time passes. Thanks to the lovely AG for passing along the info, not to mention, again, the photos. ❤

Other updates –

So last night we did not win the design challenge (nor the people’s choice). 😦

i am convinced i will never win anything in my life. (stupid mega millions..)

BUT I could not have felt more like a winner because we did such a fun, creative and unique tablescape and I am so (SO) proud of my team IBICAKE & ZOIE. i love working with these girls and am happy that I get to work alongside friends, and produce amazingness. Anyway, our tablescape: I can’t wait to share pics bc the concept and scape may just knock your socks off. I wish I had a sneak peak to share, but I hate carrying cameras around. So please, be patient. :] In the meantime here are our PHOTOCUBE pics, a few of many:

(O M L)

AND, I am happy to announce that my good friend Floral Elements, along side with SoHappiTogether & OliveHuePaper won the judged contest! Nothing but love to my fellow vendors. I just met Nancy/SoHappi last night and she is really cool 🙂 Love meeting new industry friends.

This morning, I checked out some amazing photos from a previous wedding, and you ought to come back soon to check em out. You will not be sorry.

Have a lovely Thursday. The weekend is near. I need to get off the internet and clean and pack and meet and call. The cold windy potentially snowy Seattle calls this weekend. My first time. I look forward to it. Ciao.


M & N {hitched on September 4th 2010}

On September 4th 2010, I married my favorite. Many, many warm thanks to Adrienne Gunde for our wedding photos. I wanted to show some of my favorite parts of the wedding (lots of favorites from the day!) that have yet to be shared. Please enjoy!


My favoritest wedding detail shot ever, the groom holding his bride’s bouquet:

His cufflinks were original SF Muni tokens. How dashing is my husband? Below, the fellas, mustaches and all:

If you hadn’t noticed, N is mustache free… that was my one Veto as i cannot take him seriously with a mustache. However, he did leave it until the morning so he could take one with the guys. Then, off it went. I love this photo with his dad in the mirror background:

Here’s a collage of my girls (and Bride’s Best Man). What a good lookin’ bridal party, yeah? i love them all. to bits. Must add that I made all the hair pieces and necklaces 🙂

Above right: flowers repotted from my mom’s garden. She also added a little special touch, a vintage wedding cake topper… can you spot it? She is a collector (borderline hoarder) of figurines and such for her garden… I loved that she secretly slipped an appropriate one in (thank goodness it wasn’t a bunny or scarecrow).

Our nieces & nephew, sweet little awkward things:

A family tradition: wedding performances by our youngest brother Richie (with guitar on the right) and cousin Long (left, cheesin with glasses). Despite the fact that they butchered my requests (33 by pumpkins and Everything by Michael Buble), they KILLED it with American Boy by Estelle & Kanye, and Make you feel my Love by Adele. During the latter performance, there was a special dance performance by Anne, Richie’s girlfriend… it was beyond heart touching and beautiful (below right).

I was SO IN LOVE with our cake from our dear friend Laurie from IBIcake. Like, I can’t imagine any other way it could have been. I gave her a million different images of inspiration and literally was like ‘Good luck with that!’ because none of my magazine tear outs were alike. Hah, she showed me! I must also mention that it was a good as it looked… Lemon cake with fresh raspberries & buttercream, and red velvet cake. Mmmm…

This Photowall was made by my brother & cousin / bridesmaid Nina the week of the wedding. It was fun to make, and we sure took lots of polaroids with it for our guest book! The chairs are reupholstered vintage chairs, a His & Hers gift from my cousin.

This is a raw moment Right after our recessional… i love the feeling. Very ‘YAY we did it!’ … or ‘Thank god it’s over, where’s the food?’ … one of those.

In contrast, the morning of our wedding day there was the Traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony. Below left is my Ao Dai dress.. I fell in love with the fabric the moment I saw it… the teal and metallic sequins, paired with light gold contrasting pants. Super intricate and itchy…

The fellas with their red trays filled with tea, cookies, and jewelry as gifts, lined up @ Nick’s dad’s house before the procession to my mom’s, to take me away… (and yes, there’s a roast pig under there!)

How awesome is it that my mother in law and sister in law embraced our culture and wore Ao Dai’s too?

As did my ladies:

Voila.
