This Sweet-Ass Gem!

This Sweet-Ass Gem!

I'm super excited to have Sweet Tooth Confections making all the cupcakes for our big day!  They're local out of San Jose and have a crazy variety of flavors to choose from.  We're outfitting them with our custom guitar picks so people can grab a sweet at the end of the night and take a souvenir home with them.  If you like flavor and creativity, you'll love what this husband and wife duo has to offer!

Are You For Real???

Are You For Real???

Going with a theme-centric wedding makes it easy to do things a little...different!  We recently took a spontaneous trip to Disneyland which prompted us to have our first caricature done.  I asked if they could make us into 80's glam-rock stars rather than Disney characters and this was the outcome.  Big shout out to artist Brooke.  

It turned out so great (and he really nailed my waist line ;-)  so it will be framed at our wedding for friends to sign!  

Are You VIP?

Are You VIP?

What good is a rock 'n' roll wedding if you don't have VIP Access?  Not to worry, all of our guests are VIP which is why they'll be receiving these exclusive passes inviting them to our wedding.  Forget a traditional paper invitation, VIP lanyard all the way and at only $1.30 a piece you'll save cash and do something totally different that people won't forget...or throw away!

They make for great decor and a nice takeaway, guitar pics!  We ordered 200 custom picks for about 50 bucks!  We put the logo I designed for our wedding along with the name and date.  We'll be putting them in the cupcakes for dessert and then people can take them home with them!  

 

It's a perfect touch to a rock n' roll wedding and our music-enthusiast friends will love them!  I also plan to make earrings with the extras for my bridesmaids and add Swarovski crystals ! 

Save the Dates That Won't Get Thrown Away.

Save the Dates That Won't Get Thrown Away.

I'm a videographer for a living so it's no surprise to folks who know me that I would incorporate as much video as possible into our wedding planning process.  We created this fun and engaging wedding invite with not a whole lot of extra effort, plus we got to share more of our engagement photos rather than just limiting us to a few on a card, which may eventually get tossed in the trash.

We had someone follow us around during our engagement photo shoot to capture all the fun little moments in between which in turn told a story.  You can do this by telling how you met or maybe a fun activity you enjoy doing together.  We sent ours out about 2 weeks ago and the outpour of comments have been amazing, here's a few of my faves:  "This made my eyes tear up, this is so you two!" , "You guys are so creative, I can't wait to celebrate with y'all!" , " This made me want to drink bourbon and own a Mustang!"

Press play.

We embedded this into a page on our website and added a button to a Google Form to collect guest's physical addresses...cause this day in age who has them?  But we all have emails, so this was an excellent way to gather everyone's deets and share our Save the Date.  It also saves money on stamps and printing!
