Map Love!

I had to share these {adorable} invitations that one of our fall brides shared with us the other day. She sent over the invitation suite designed by her very own sister. Immediately, I fell in love with the map and had to share! Alicia and Dev will be married this September in La Jolla, Ca. Alicia has incorporate her southern roots into so many details of the wedding, yet it will surely have a "Cali" feel being nestled in the La Jolla cove. Dev and Alicia's photographer, Collin Richie, captured their engagement photos in New Orleans, which is a where they were engaged last fall.

Invitations: Melinda Gonzalez
Photographer: Collin Richie

Alicia + Dev, we're excited for your big day!

Antique Shopping Secrets

One afternoon last week, I was out shopping for some fun pieces for a project we're working on. I decided to slip in the local antique shops found in Ocean Beach. There were some amazing finds! As you know, the ever so popular "vintage" theme incorporated in weddings is huge. Whether it be hobnob glass vases, chandeliers, chalkboards, vintage signs....the details are endless!

After browsing around for a bit, and noticing the high priced sales tag on many of the beautiful depression glass vases, I had an idea. I asked the woman at the front desk if she would be willing to sell the items to me, and after use I could sell them back to the shop? That's when she dropped the hint that I think you all should know. {Vendors, brides, party planners alike!} You can rent pieces from the antique store.....for 20% of the price!! I can't claim that all antique stores do this, but if you're looking for some fun pieces for your tables at the wedding, a photo shoot or fun event, I highly suggest checking this out. It may be a great bargain, and a simply wonderful added detail!
