31 Bits…

Pure. Simple. Elegant.  Just a few of the words that come to mind when I look at these pictures. This little chair of mine has never looked so pretty, and I can thank Summer Watkins for that! She did an amazing job styling the Wedding Catalog for 31 Bits — an amazing company, doing amazing things! Read about them….you will agree. I promise.

I am lucky enough to have some of this beautiful jewelry….thanks to Allison for my Christmas present.  I love thinking about the women that made them and how much their lives have changed because of 31 bits. I think this is an amazing company, so keep them in mind when you need to buy a great gift for someone…or for yourself ;)


Happy Friday!


The Hendrickson White Chair was used in 31 Bit’s wedding collection shoot



In the Works…

I will start by apologizing for these pictures. They aren’t pretty, but I just shot a few with my iphone so that I could get this post up quick, and get some feedback! I have lots of ideas in the works, but would love to get some input about what is needed out there? Colors? Patterns? I’ve got a plan, but for the first time ever, I am taking outside input before I pull the trigger! So tweet, comment, do whatever you can for your voice to be heard! I’m listening!

Ok, off to the warehouse to get started….and later today we will be loading up the truck to get these beauties to the upholsterer’s!! Get your vote in NOW!!!!


Jennifer and Jason…Married

The ladies of Bash, Please never cease to amaze me with the beauty and style they bring to each and every one of their weddings. I love the soft, muted palette, set against the beautiful Malibu coast. Pure beauty.

Donna + Chris…Engaged

I do love engagement sessions! Couples are so full of excitement and happiness as they are preparing for their wedding (as they should be), and e-sessions show just that. Aren’t they cute?!  
They shot at an airport so the vintage suitcases were just the perfect touch to a very sweet session…
The pieces Donna and Chris incorporated in their engagement shoot were

Wilson Suitcase, Grimaud Brown Suitcase, Marcus Brown Suitcase and Tolle Brown Bag 

Photographer: Joe + Kathrina Photography (check out more photos from their blog)

Modern Shoot…with a touch of Vintage

I was excited to see this shoot on Style Me Pretty last week and couldn’t wait to share. When Amanda from In The Now Weddings called and asked to use some of our pieces for the shoot, I knew it would be great. Mostly, because she is super awesome and always comes up with creative, out-of-the-box design, and also because it was a Modern theme. I love that she thought of us and incorporated some vintage elements into this extremely stylish shoot. The fabulous photos were taken by the super cool, Jasmine Star.

I absolutely love the Vibiana and love it when we have events there. If you ever get the chance to walk the property…take it! It is to die for! 

Have a Happy Weekend!

Found pieces used in this shoot: Nicholas Side Table, Sentiment White Bar, Burbidge Metal Spools (set of 10), and Rod Blue Metal Table





To say that I was excited to have Matt Armendariz rent some pieces for a photo shoot, would be an understement! I am no foody, but after spending hours on his blog, I think just about anyone would want to become one. I am in awe of his talent; with food, with photography & his way with words! His execution of all of the above is inviting and relaxing all at the same time. Who has that much talent???

Seeing found furniture in new and different ways is always exciting to me. Looking at these pictures gives me chills…and hunger pains!

If you like to eat, drink, read, or just look at pretty pictures…you must check out Matt Bites….you will surely fall in love!

Real Wedding…Christen & Scott

I received the sweetest thank you card from Christen yesterday, so I felt it only appropriate to blog her wedding. We had such a great time styling this beautiful back yard celebration right on the Balboa Penninsula. Isn’t it just lovely?

It is always such a blessing to receive compliments and thank you cards from former brides. I just had to share a bit of Christen’s sweet note:

“Thank you so much for making my wedding day more than I dreamed of. Your attention to detail and all of the generous time and effort you put into our special day was as if it was your own. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your energy and talent…”

Words like this remind me how foruntate we are to work in an industry that is centered around making a bride and grooms’ day come to life just as they envision it….and more so, if we are lucky!

Thank you Christen for the kind words, it was a pleasure to work with you!

Happy Friday!
