OK We’re going to try this again!

I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be teaming up with some pretty stellar vendors for the Los Angeles NotWedding.  I remember oohing and aahing over the very first NotWedding in Atlanta.  I had never seen anything like it before…a bridal show like no other…with cool, out-of-the-box ideas for those of us who didn’t want a cookie cutter wedding.  I’m hoping to bring that same level of freshness to the table this year and I think with the help of folks like The Little Branch and Smitten on Paper the creativity will be through the roof!

I hope you’ll join us on Wednesday, February 27th for what is sure to be an awesome night packed with inspiration!  Get your tickets here or enter right now for a chance to get a ticket for $5!   Just a few rules: to win you must be engaged, must agree to get more information from the NotWedding vendors and must list Sweet Emilia Jane as the vendor who referred you.

OK, so to enter simply leave a comment here about why you want to go to the NotWedding and I’ll pick a winner at random next week.

Make sure you find me in the Tunnel of Love and say hello!  I’ll be giving away some sweet goodies to the first 100 people or so who stop by!

*Winning ticket will be $30 off regular priced ticket.

    Since I’ve been engaged & have started planning our wedding, I’ve only been to one wedding- and I feel like it was the most incredibly insightful, helpful thing EVER! I saw what worked, what didn’t, what I loved, and what I would definitely want to change when we have our big day.

    I’d love to go to the Not Wedding and have the opportunity to learn more and get that experience once again. Plus, I want my date to be my best friend, Kelsey, who is getting married in March. Double the wedding learning & fun! xoReplyCancel

    I’m a geek bride and not having a conventional wedding. I would love to go to the Not wedding event as I would love to be in a place that has venues that would be suitable for a bride like me. I want to see unique and different like Sweet Emilia Jane! Hence why I would love to go!ReplyCancel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A while back Jessica of A Vintage Affair Rentals found my Etsy shop and asked me to recreate the Mr. and Mrs. signs that I had made for Devon and Jake’s wedding for her own elegant, rustic wedding.  I love how the white ink on kraft paper turned out and the rest of her romantic celebration is just stunning.  You can see some of the sweet details shot by Laura Murray on Martha Stewart Weddings!

Another amazing SmogShoppe wedding coming your way!  Here are a few of my favorite Kari Kochar photos that were featured on 100 Layer Cake today!  This was definitely one of the best weddings everwith Whoa Nelly! Catering, Cake Monkey Bakery and DJ Lady Sinclair.  Such an awesome round-up of vendors and a truly magical night!

I have SO many weddings from this past year to share with you.  Some of them are waiting to get featured but this little beauty was published on Ruffled a little while ago.  Frances and Patrick are two of the loveliest people I’ve ever met.  They are so nice and so perfect for each other.  I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them and loved getting a holiday card from them just the other day (hi guys!).  Katie Osgood (another awesome person and obviously talented photog…I was SO excited to meet her) was there to capture their eco-friendly, DIY wedding at one of my all-time favorite venues – SmogShoppe.

Of course, I hope that you all have a MERRY and BRIGHT holiday this year but I’m kind of digging the idea of a dark and moody winter wedding or holiday dinner party.  Black sequins, midnight blue, gold and pops of coral and peony pink.  Check out the pinterest board for all the credits!

Did you catch our latest feature on Green Wedding Shoes?  My favorite floral ladies over at The Little Branch asked me to help out with the design and planning of this adorable winter table inspiration.  I had been wanting to do something with wool and wood and this was the perfect opportunity.  I made the super cute and oh-so easy napkin rings from old sweater cuffs!  The square, wood chargers were one of my favorite elements.  I stained precut wood from Michaels.  Easy!  I love how effortlessly elegant it all looks and so cozy!  Perfect for a holiday party or Christmas dinner!

A client recently asked me for flower girl dress recommendations that are under or around $50.  Ever since becoming a mommy I’ve become a wee bit obsessed with the baby + kid sections at Target, Gap and H+M.  Right now, or after the holiday when the sales start, are great times to hit the stores because the party frocks are in full effect!  Here are a few of my favorites…

My bestie + wedding photographer extraordinaire Aimee asked me to put together a Design Blueprint for her best friend in Florida who is getting married next year and I liked it so much that I had to share it with you.  I have to admit that sometimes I’m afraid of too much color.  I tend to lean towards soft, romantic colors or neutrals with pops of bright hues but I love a challenge so I jumped at the chance to create this colorful mood board for Tina and Matt’s modern beach affair.  I can’t wait to see Aimee’s photos!  Check out my pinterest page for credits and loads more photos.
