I LOVED this wedding and I LOVED this bride!  Aside from being absolutely GORGEOUS on the outside, Niza was one of the most LOVELY brides on the inside.  Although we had a short planning time frame…we were able to come up with the perfect FRESH, COLORFUL and CHIC wedding design for Niza and Jose.  Hot Pink, Lime Green, Marigold Yellow, Bright Orange and Mint Green popped against the STUNNING backdrop of  Wolf Lakes Park in the form of luscious flowers and whimsical lanterns.

Since it was a family affair, the KIDS AREA was a kaleidoscope of fun activities and sugary sweets.  There was also perfect touches of a Chocolate Fountain, Mariachi Band and sophisticated Lounge Area for all of the guests to enjoy.   It was all captured by the FAMOUS and ridiculously-talented photographer, Mariano Friginal.  Enjoy the photos!

There is something you should know about us and it’s about time we share.  We have a secret obsession…ok, maybe it’s a ‘not-so-secret’ obsession.   We LOVE everything that has to do with paper!  From invitations, gift wrapping, cards, ribbons, fonts, recycling, stationery, booklets, calligraphy…you name it – we love it!

And we HEART paper stores.  A couple of our favorite ones that we have visited recently are Paper Sky in San Luis Obispo, CA and Paper Source in Bellevue (my hometown) in the Seattle Area.  Sheri and I can (and have) been in those stores for hours.

Anyhow, below are a few of our recent paper details we have been loving lately, enjoy!
