Custom Stationary

I received a package of Pose Prints cards last year with a blonde girl that resembled me with the golden gate bridge behind me. I love these cards, I know that the recipient gets a smile when they open these fun and witty cards. They are sweet to use for bridal and baby showers, and all you need is a simple picture of the guest of honor to make them really cute. There are also couple thank you notes and save the dates.

Order any cards through this site, and enter 'dream' at the checkout, and you will receive 10% off your order.

Happy Planning!

Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe Party

Wednesday night was a busy night, we had the Knot Networking event, but before we could get there, we stopped by the lavish event that was being put on by the new Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe at Jardiniere. What a lovely restaurant, and the food was outstanding. It was a top notch affaire with snacks to nosh on like mini sliders, artichoke crostinis and mini croque monsieur's and bubbles a plenty. Brittani and I had a great time, and we were able to meet and talk with Rolly from the new Ritz set to open in Dec 2009. Can't wait to check it out when they open!

We also got to meet up with some of our other friends in the industry. In this photo Maria from Fresh, Rolly from the Ritz Carlton, Jean Marks, Jubilee Lau and Janece ShellooeHappy Planning!

The Knot Networking Event

Every year The Knot Northern California puts on these great events for advertisers and vendors in the wedding and event industry. The venue they chose for this one was The Galleria at the San Francisco Design Center. What an amazing space! This was such a great event, not only because Michelle from MB Wedding Designs was the event planner, but they also had such a great turnout. It was great, as always, to meet new vendors and connect with old friends. It is a time to let loose, talk shop, and be able to enjoy an event from a "guest" point of view for a change. Brittani, my associate and I had a great time, and here are just a few pictures from the night.

Niki + Ben | Flood Mansion | May 2

Last night was such an amazing night! I was fortunate enough to be a part of putting together this lovely wedding for an even more lovely couple, Niki & Ben, at the James Leary Flood Mansion. I am so exhausted from the 12 hour day, but it was so worth it to see how happy they were when I sent them off to their after party! I was hired by Niki about six months ago to help her put all the final pieces of her wedding together. Since she was planning from New York, the trips here would be limited, but we were able to communicate a lot over the phone and email, and when she was here, her days were packed with meetings!

The concept for the wedding was whimsical yet con
temporary, with elements from both of their ethnic backrounds recognized. It was simply gorgeous, and the bride herself was a beauty. I loved working with the whole family and our professional group of vendors. What a surprise the guests got when they walked in from the draizzly gloomy day outside into this springtime wonderland!Though I don't have the photos from the amazing Anna Kuperberg yet, I couldn't wait to share a few shots I was able to get of some of the details (as always, excuse my horrible photo taking skills).

I will definitely post the professional photos once I get them as well as all the wonderful vendors that took part in creating this magical wedding.
