rachel and derrick :: andaz san diego

I'm proud of my city -- San Diego. And when I meet couples who are not locals and plan to wed in my hometown, there's an excitement that overcomes me. Rachel and Derrick, who were married earlier this April at the Andaz San Diego, wanted to share with their family and friends what SD has to offer -- beautiful skylines, mid-70s weather, countless beaches, and relaxed locals. We were hired to help with month-of coordination and invitations/paper details. Together, R+D worked on designing their special event. They chose the perfect wedding venue to highlight the city's downtown, with a rooftop that gives a glimpse into a busy, vibrant, and social nightlife. With 75 of their dearest family and friends, R+D not only had one memorably sweet ceremony, but an awesome kick-your-heels-off kind of wedding reception! Here are some beautiful photos from their big day at the Andaz last April. These were captured by Joshua Killeen, who happened to be one of the easiest fellas to work with! Thanks to the Andaz staff, Ever After Weddings, Adorations, Joshua Killeen, B'Entertained, Playtime Attractions, Sweet Cheeks Bakery, and Platinum Party Rentals for helping make this day possible!

xylowedding :: wood veneer invitations

Just wanted to show off these rad wedding invitations we designed for Aj and Anna Calomay. We had the pleasure of helping with design+invitations+coordination for their xylo wedding last weekend at St Joan of Arc Church and the SmogShoppe. We have lots to show you, but peep these.. these were printed on cotton rag and then mounted on wood veneer, and then triple knotted with mini rope. I love how the lined envelopes turned out!

Special thanks to one of our favorite and super talented cinematographers, Loyd Calomay, for referring us to his cousin, Aj--we are blessed to have been a part of the all-star team of vendors!
