this past weekend, i had the pleasure of attending a friend's super-chic wedding on catalina island. not only did i have a fabulous time at this gorgeous, uber-relaxing beach locale, i was blown away by the bride and groom's extraordinary vision for their special day.
loaded with personal touches and chic diy creations, this wedding was one of the most inspiring examples of a couple who truly put their heart, soul, and personality into their design.
the couple enlisted the help of vanilla bake shop for the chocolate and passion fruit cupcakes, as well as the construction of the coordinating cake stand, made from fabric lindsey used for the table runners. it survived the boat ride from los angeles beautifully!
for those of you daunted by the idea of tackling major elements of design on your own, consider how these personal touches added warmth and an air of storytelling that were not only creative, but dramatically unique. i loved them all.
congratulations dave and lindsey — job well done!
