Undoubtedly, many of you have already seen these beautiful wedding invitations on Snippet & Ink and Oh So Beatiful Paper but in case you hadn’t I thought I share. Kathryn of Snippet & Ink was married this last December in San Francisco and her wedding was absolutely stunning! Every detail was executed brilliantly all while having that casual laid back sophistication – much like Kathryn herself.

I literally gasped when I saw her entire wedding suite! The subtle grey type on white paper with the bold pops of red are breathtaking! My favorite detail is the hand-edged red on the invitation and reception card along with the red hand-boardered envelopes. Oh and the bride and groom – AH-DORBS! Be sure to check out the rest of this lovely suite here and see more details of Kathryn and Ryan’s enchanting wedding here, here and here!

I’m signing off early this week friends but I’ll see you all back here Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!

 




Love these milk bottle measuring cups from Anthropologie! Perfectly beautiful inside and out, and the fact that they’re stackable make them the prettiest space saver ever!




While working on my latest Save The Dates, I was in desperate need of gold staples but couldn’t find any locally and didn’t have time to order them. I improvised with a gold permanent pen and violá instant gold staples!

While staples come in a plethora of colors now a days, it’s fun to make your own. I imagine that this would work with any permanent marker as well and it’s a good trick when you’re in a bind!
