Jacey + Grant…

I absolutely adore everything about this wedding by Beth Helmstetter. Jacey and Grant are such a breathtakingly beautiful couple! Plus, their two bulldogs, William and Polly, were a real show stealer. I’m so stoked that Found could be part of this amazingly gorgeous day! If you’re anything like me and just couldn’t get enough of Jacey and Grant’s wedding day, check out all the photos from Style Me Pretty‘s post. 


The Cream…

The Found team and I had such an amazing time at The Cream and were so excited to be among the crop put together by the Bash, Please girls. Everyone brought their “A” game in rad shades of neon to The Book Bindery. Check out some snap shots from the night!


Found’s lounge vignettes had a front row seat to the dance floor. My favorite contribution was our bright pink heart shining on all the onlookers.

Stoked that we could help Simple Things add a rustic touch to their corner. 

Loved all the Found touches at Urbanic and Wiley Valentine

I could have lounged in the gorgeous BHLDN corner all evening

A few pieces from the Found collection hung out with Love and Splendor for the night

Jill Velez’s beautiful calligraphy looked great with Found’s chippy paint

Our friends at Casa De Perrin were nothing short of stunning

Inspiration Games…

Here’s a little inspiration for those of you Hunger Games lovers. Who knew this series could provide such beautiful inspiration for a bride? I just love finding inspiration in unlikely places and Lindye and the team did such an amazing job bringing the book to life in this shoot! 

How beautiful do the Mathers Wooden Table and Portsmouth Folding Chairs look in these photos by Ashley?

Goin’ Pickin’…

In 8 short hours I will be boarding a plane to Paris! I am so excited I can hardly contain myself! The hubs and kids and I will be exploring the beautiful city for a week, and then I will be staying for an additional 6 days to shop like crazy to fill up a 40ft container that I will be shipping back to California! This is the biggest pickin’ trip I have ever been on, and I am extremely nervous and excited to say the least! As I was packing tonight, I grabbed my old faithful pickin’ boots and started thinking about all of the places these boots have been. I smiled. I feel so blessed to be doing what I love, and to call it my job. So blessed.

I can’t wait to share all of the pictures of my trip upon my return! Stay tuned!


Eric + Lillian…

When In the Now Weddings is in charge, you know wonderful things are going happen! I’m loving this wedding and all of the fantastic details! Franciscan Gardens is so beautiful and the intimacy of every wedding there is perfect. Ashley Rose always does an amazing job photographing the day, and little ol’ me is blessed to have been a part of it all :) 
Another beautiful wedding! Love it!

The Cream…

I am finally getting around to posting some pictures from The Cream. We spent almost 2 full days installing for the big night and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We were lucky enough to provide furniture for a lot of the other vendors involved, so we ended up delivering almost 4 full truck loads! It was a fantastic night and I am always so excited to be a part of such a wonderful collaboration of talent! My hubby and I weren’t able to be there until almost 9:00pm because it was our kids Open House that night and our son was in a play.

These were taken by my hubby once we arrived….The party was in full swing so I asked him just to grab a few quick shots before we started mingling. I’m so glad he did! This is our light fixture installation, complete with edison bulbs and lots of neon yarn ;)


Why yes, that is our neon heart hanging from the rafters….

So our main installation consisted of a progression of chairs. I love the beauty of a deconstructed chair and I really wanted to show the progression of what most of my chairs go through. We displayed each one on a raised wooden box with custom lights we had made, over each one. I really wanted to present them as a work of art. I am so fortunate that the Bash,Please ladies had given me this 70ft long stretch to display. I started with just the frames of chairs….and gradually progressed to the completely re-upholsterd chairs. There were 12 total….6 on each side.

This picture definitely shows it best…

These are just a couple quick shots of how Urbanic and Wiley Valentine used some of our pieces. I am dying to see more pics from the other vendors!

Me and my girls….

Happy Saturday!
