It's in the details - from custom invitations to creative cakes!

We are always so excited with folks come to us with a challenge! Our bride had been searching and searching online and just could not find what she was looking for...something modern, unique, playful and bold plus she wanted to include a nod to her soon-to-be husband's Asian heritage.

We think we nailed it and so did our couple. With lots of input from them, we came up with "exactly what we were looking for, even though we didn't know what it was going to look like."

The couple had chosen CornerStone Gardens in Sonoma (a unique venue with lots of sculptures and structures) for their ceremony and reception with 200 guests.

Next we used the custom illustration, artwork and color palette as a guide to develop all of the other  fun elements. Some of the pieces we worked on with the couple to help make their celebration one-of-a-kind:
  • custom invitation using Envelopments paper + pockets
  • detailed map drawn specifically for them
  • mailing address wraps with custom return address logo
  • programs, menus and escort cards in mini envelopes
  • table makers including photos of them as children
  • packaging for "kid packs" for all of the little guests
  • markers for the dessert bar and festive tables for the candy jars

We also supplied files to other vendors working with the couple:
  • mailbox for cards and small gifts
  • flip book photo booth covers
  • and the MOST AMAZING CAKE! We always love to see how our designs translate into other components and this cake was just perfect!  

Congratulations Sara & Calvin! We hope to work with you again soon....maybe on some birth announcements.
