recycle & reUse

2 Apr

I must, I must, I MUST internet blast the wonderful world of The Long Beach Depot for Creative ReUSe. For anyone who loves to craft, go there now! I walked into this place and I was immediately obsessed. The Depot is just what it sounds like…any and everything you can think of that might be thought of as junk, can be re-used, and it WILL be found in this place. Anything from old pen caps, to buttons, to old sewing patterns, and bottle caps, etc. The store recycles random materials for the creators re-invention. Super eco-friendly. Not only can you find the most random materials for sale, but you end up paying little to nothing for any project imaginable. We came here to look for vintage materials to use for wedding decor, and I will admit that I was a bit distracted. With that said, I did find what I was looking for, and I will be back in the future to rummage through all their riches 🙂


jennie + dustin get married!

1 Sep

Yes, it’s been a minute since our last blog post, but it’s been a busy month for me because one of our good friends just got married! Congratulations, Dustin and Jennie!!

We had to post the details about their wedding because it was beautiful and perfect for the lovely pair. I had the honor of being a part of the wedding party, so I got to see a lot of the details that goes behind the planning, and everything turned out flawless and so smooth. The theme of the wedding was ‘vintage travel’ which I absolutely fell in love with, since day one of the bride’s planning. So details include everything from maps on the invitation to a huge luggage cake…so adorable. The ceremony was held in Long Beach at St. Cornelius Catholic Church and the reception was in Newport Beach at the Turnip Rose. Oz and I had so much fun! 🙂

I can go on and on about all the beautiful details, but I’d rather show you! I think everyone at the wedding would agree that one of the highlights was the awesome same day video edit by the extremely talented Loyd Calomay. This video pretty much sums it up, and I absolutely love this idea, so I wanna share it. Future couples to wed…you are gonna love this!
