Birds & Honey: Oh So Beautiful Paper

Jan 20 , 2014

I have always been in love and a bit obsessed with beautiful paper. This stems back to my childhood when I would swoon over hand written letters sent from my grandpa joon all the way from Iran. I would savour that beautifully blemished paper that was full of imperfections yet still so perfect to me. I have always surrounded myself with beautiful words. Beautiful words in my books, beautiful words on my walls and beautiful words for my couples when they are planning the wedding of their dreams. A few months ago I renewed my vows with my sweet husband and I decided to really go with the flow and keep it simple. However, there was one thing I wasn’t willing to give up and that was my pretty paper addiction. I mean, can you really blame me?

Working in this industry is truly a blessing because through the power of social media and a little shove from the big guy up there I had the absolute honour of meeting one of the most talented people in the realm of pretty paper and that amazing lady is Sarah Donovan of The Stationary Baker. She is legit one of the most sweetest people you will ever come across. Beautiful inside and out and stationary visionary. I contacted Sarah with a vision that at times seemed like a bit of a hot mess in my head but she managed to create the most stunning stationary suite for me and my juju. Sarah, I hope you don’t think I’m cray but I have reused every single item and hung up it as art in my home. It’s just too gorgeous not to be displayed!

Big thank you to the amazing Kat Gill of Katch Studios for taking these gorgeous shots for me. You can also check out more of this stationary goodness on one of my fav blogs in the whole wide world: Oh So Beautiful Paper

Redesigned: My Wedding

May 29 , 2013

I was recently asked by my sweet friend Nikkol Christiansen who runs the stunning blog Peter Loves Jane to contribute to a section called “my wedding redesigned” Not that I absolutely didn’t love my wedding as is but if I could ever have a re-do, it would go a little something like this:

First things first, my juju and I would elope to some gorgeous little spot probably somewhere in Paris or Southern California. Just the two of us without a care in the world! Elizabeth Messina or Jose Villa would capture all of the gorgeousness and I would have the amazing Julie Song Ink create some gorgeous paper for us! Without further ado here is what I would do now.

The Paper: Julie Song Ink is my hero when it comes to all things pretty and paper so in my dream world she would help me create something that oozes romance and color all into one! Photo Credit: Julie Song Ink

Ceremony Spot: I would love to do something secluded, and oh, so romantic, with some darling chandaliers hanging out of no where! Photo Credit: Jose Villa

The Dress: This time around I think I would want to be a tad more covered up. No more sweetheart neckline or strapless. I have fallen in love with the idea of being a bit more covered up. Photo Credit: Elizabeth Messina

The Cake: I was such a ball of nerves on my wedding day that I didn’t even get to enjoy some cake. So this time around I would combine all things pretty + gold with all things tasty…maybe even some kind of vanilla bean concoction! Photo Credit: Vicky Starz Photography

The Bouquet: First time around I had no idea anything besides peonies even existed so this time around I would want a variety of peonies, garden roses, anomies and all the gorgeous little bits of greenery you could imagine! Photo Credit: Melanie Duerkopp
