Angela & Eugene {Rancho del Cielo}

Eugela got married this past weekend… and it was such a beautiful day! Enjoy these photos from SherriJ Photography, and be sure to check out the rest of em on her blog here... the details Angela, Betty (and I’m sure Eugene) thought of were so lovely… look closely at the wood etchings .. they are dotted.. by hand! Insane. You can really see the love that filled the day in Sherri’s photos… makes me happy.

we hung burlap panels to dress up the fireplace area; lamp shades of all different shapes and sizes were hung by the fun bridal party for a cute ‘homey’ feel.

the vessels were collected by the bride and Betty from Type A Planning

I’ve got to thank my awesome assistant Marisa who helped out just before catching a plane to NY… and to team Yo. Yall are awesome… woot!

each bridesmaid had her own floral type bouquet with dusty miller

and Ashley’s was a combination of all.

The centerpieces were all in vintage milk glass collected by the bride’s mom.

Congratulations Ashley & Ian… cheers to a lifetime of happiness!

Bunch created petite florals for the 2011 Bridal Collection of Petit Plume, a local darling bridal hair accessory studio. Aren’t these hair accessories (and brides) so pretty?

They also have children’s and everyday wear lines. Be sure to check out their stuff… a portion of proceeds go to charity!

The Anatomy of A Sparkler


Issue no. 14 of Utterly Engaged is out, and we got Editor’s Choice again this year! (Page 30) Thank you Lucia!

The design contest theme was [SNAP CRACKLE POP]. Besides rice krispies, what else comes to mind with those words? I wanted to really go a different route with it (I even half jokingly pitched molding the entire tablescape out of rice krispy treats), something not so obvious… something smart… something original… so we developed

[The Anatomy of a Sparkler]. Here is the inspiration board:

We went completely scientific, playing off metals / powders, mixes, dye, test tubes, books, glass jars, formulas… really playing on the sounds and steps it takes to get to that spark. Here are photos from D.Park Photography.

Below: Why yes, i believe it’s cake. Each place setting got a mini unfinished cake, playing on the idea of the anatomy, start, making of an element.

Really wanted to stay away from lavish lush florals, and go the simple, modest route with pin cushions, mums, dusty miller and wax flower (with their buds ever present and waiting to burst). Used some PBR to fill the cups.

our chicken scratch runner, of graph and copy paper with formulas & notes scribbled. (and a round of hang man).

i designed simple stationery to go with this new year’s party theme.

We wanted to incorporate real sparklers but those tested at a life span of 5 minutes. not cool. Overall we were really happy from concept to completion. Definitely not your everyday pretty party… we can do that too, but that’s not really why we’re here.

What do you think?

The awesome team: Ibicake, Zoie Events… and Bunch Studio. Thanks to El Segundo High. Thanks to UE!

EEPS!!! We were also the favorite of some fellow vendors! Thanks so much Enchanted Events & Design and Alders Photography!
