Santa Barbara wedding: Megan + Carver

Categories   Real Weddings

all white peony bouquet

We’re always fascinated to see how couples add decor elements that are based off their individual hobbies into their wedding. It has the potential to get a wee bit funky, real quick. Or it can look charming, if say, one of you (Megan) is passionately into letterpress moveable type and the other (Carver) is into vintage BMW hood emblems. But M + C made them work beautifully among centerpieces crawling with the prettiest of white and blush florals. Then there were the other details – letterpress invitations, hand stamped confetti bags… she even made koozies look pretty! Ok, just go on and take a gander.

Kelli- the map was used as her guest book. Guest wrote their names on the flags and pinned them on the world map.... Megan- the custom koozies (along with her cups, cocktail napkins and guest towels were designed by the bride herself and printed by Paper House Online:

Great wedding and video. What venue is this? Santa Barbara is a big place

Krysta Campainha on Jun 4, 2013

Brilliant guide thanks! Seems to function perfectly well when using the latest versions of wordpress as well (3.3) Made the code a lot cleaner as mentioned and seems to have made life less complicated when trying to implement the comments form into side areas ect. (Had a nightmare with previous use from the normal code)

Can I ask where you got the beautiful cream colored vintage car? on Jul 14, 2013

If a person takes in more glucose than the body needs at the time. Figure out how many calories are in the drug that affect mood and appetite. Better tip: Try drinking away your gout with alkaline water with a twist of lime has few calories, just 8 ounces of water before every meal. The best way to meet your goal is to lose 82 pounds to weigh 170. There's nothing about dieting nutrition, in and of itself to be afraid of. Hopefully the water weight will be lost.

Beautiful, down to every detail! I know it says the Bridesmaid dresses are from Bella Bridal, but can you tell me who the designer was or what style they are, love them.
