Angela + Chris

I love it when couples share their wedding photos! Because as a stationer, we don't get to participate on the day-of like most vendors do. So, photos are the only way we get to share in the couple's happiness.

Angela and Chris married on June 9 at the stunning Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, followed by a reception at The Fairmont Hotel in San Jose. I first met Angela and Chris at a bridal showcase and they were the lucky winner of my raffle prize. They are really a sweet and charming couple! And their wedding reflects just that: pure sweet tenderness!

I love how the cake looks almost like a silk satin gown with fabric-covered buttons and colored satin sash. Fushia blossoms and orange-colored hummingbirds adored their invitations and table cards. Chris and Angela are quite the youth-at-heart couple by indulging their guests with cotton candy and playful ice sculptures. I love it!

Congratulations, Angela and Chris! Your wedding sure looks fun!

Congratulations, Jennel and Kharl!

Jennel and Kharl tied the knot at the Walnut Creek Marriott on July 14! Jennel kept her wedding simply elegant by thoughtfully blending in her colors with their monogram.

The coordinators were Lea and Natalie of Simply Sparkling Events, and floral designs were by the highly in-demand Nicole Ha. Glass Slipper Gourmet created the simply beautiful and delectable wedding cake. And Cards de Luxe designed the wedding program and escort cards. The event was sure to be a success as Jennel surrounded herself with a group of very talented vendors!

Orlena + Justin

Orlena and Justin's wedding is one of those weddings where I can't wait to see their wedding photos! It is always exciting to see how all the carefully planned details come together on the wedding day.

Orlena and Justin were married on May 27 at St. Cecilia Church, followed by a formal reception at the Mark Hopkins in San Francisco. The wedding was glamorous, romantic and timeless as captured by Gene Higa, a very talented and in-demand Bay Area wedding photographer!

Orlena choose to use coordinated stationery throughout her wedding - from invitations to programs, menus, escort cards, favor tag and thank you notes. All stationeries were designed in Orlena's favorite colors - green and aubergine - and used a paisley motif as the centerpiece.

Congratulations, Orlena and Justin! You are a beautiful couple!
