Hitched Recap!

Hitched was last week and it was SO MUCH FUN! I had a blast meeting so many of you guys and other vendors I admire. It totally lived up to the hype! Big thanks to Audrey of Urbanic and Kelly and Paige from Bash, Please for organizing such a rad event and inviting some super talented and super sweet people to share their talents. Seriously you guys, it was like a creative explosion of talent in the already amazing Smog Shoppe. Big thanks to Sarah Yates and Jack Wittbold from Sarah Yates Photography for sharing their photos with me.

One of the many things I was looking forward to was try some of the cupcakes from Enjoy Cupcakes and they were even better than I imagined! I also had a chance to talk with Amber – the owner and baker of the yummy cupcakes – and she really is a sweetheart! The hubby and I are already planning a trip up to Santa Ynez to visit her shop – and some wineries! :)

The lovely ladies of 100 Layer Cake and I were asked to provides some DIY ideas for couples, so we each set up a table with some fun ideas – be sure to check their blog, they are posting their ideas this week and next! Here is a peek at my table – with a few iphone pics from myself :) I’ll be sharing more on how to DIY these super cute + fun flowers and the burlap banner I made next week.

The hubby and I above. Big thanks to him for helping me set up and tear down. Love you!! Sarah modeling one of the yummy cocktails by Heirloom LA. And let me say, honestly the food, it was so amazing. We were lucky enough to be stationed right in front of the food table and Jason made sure I got to try each of their yummy bites. :) If you are looking to wow your guests with amazing food – maybe you are a bit of a foodie yourself, I could not recommend Heirloom LA more. Honest. Check them out – plus the owners are the sweetest couple! So great meeting you both!

I am wondering if I can really return from Alt on Saturday and make it to Austin on Sunday.  Bri is giving away tickets over on Design Love Fest if you want to enter!  Doesn’t it look like fun? {  Header image Bonnie Tsang Photography, other images from Green Wedding Shoes} […]
