the personal blog + portfolio of a paper and prose lover

An oldie, but one of my faves. I found her amidst my box of goodies, and thought it was time to take her out for a fresh little photo shoot. 

Happy end of summer darlings. Here is a gorgeously adorable shoot that I joined in on, featuring inspiration for the littlest wedding members. 

Head on over to Style Me Pretty to see the full shoot here.

Robin + Sergei’s Floral and Gold Foil Invitations. I can only partially take credit on these, because Robin added so many beautiful details post print - the gorgeous liner, the ribbon wrap, and that custom monogram (designed by the bride - wow!) I was literally in love with how all the details pulled together so seamlessly. 

I loved Robin’s kind words on these… 

They’re only starting to arrive at guests’ houses, and I’m already getting flooded with messages saying they’re “BLOWN AWAY” and getting the most wonderful compliments!! They really are a huge hit! I think we knocked quite a few socks off.

Robin, you are a doll! xoxo 

A seaside stunner for Lara and Ryan, xoxo

sweetly framed forals for Ana and Liam’s wedding. I love you. 

I am loving the photos from a shoot I was a part of… Styled by Crystal Robinson from Shindig Fancy, and Photographed by Danielle Rose of Lavender and Twine

So much gorgeousness here in a simple elopement - which makes me think I want both a wedding and elopement - you know, all the elaborateness of a wedding, but then all the simplicity of an elopement. 

Thank you ladies for including me in this awesomeness 

Venue: Institution Ale Co. in Camarillo CA // Florals by These Buds a Blooming // Cake by (smores! Oh yes!) The Sugar Lab // for all the vendors and the full gallery, head over to Ruffled Blog, where this was featured! 

I really love these invites… but with Megan’s calligraphy, I love them even more.

SO gorgeous. 

When you are planning your invites, don’t forget all your coordinating signage! Here are few snippets of the lovelies from Alexa + Marco’s wedding. <3 

Looking to sizzle and swing?

That’s definitely the mission for Amber + Brett’s Miami wedding! I am loving the thought of turning up the heat in Miami, as I sit here in single digit weather!! 

xo, umama

oh darlings, i love you and feel blessed to have both our worlds intertwine, even if only for a moment! 
Merry Christmas to all, xoxo UMAMA
