Myesha and Craig threw a festive, elegant wedding in LA, just one short month ago, with the prettiest color palette. The white was ruffly, the grey was calm, and the papaya was punchy. I love how photographer Adrienne Gunde even shot the around-the-town photos in areas of the city that matched the palette. Lovely!
Adrienne said: I
could see it from our first meeting over cucumber mint lemonade...the
way Craig looks at Myesha. And Myesha looks at Craig. There is so much
love between these two, expressed in a bouquet of white roses delivered
to Myesha that morning, a tearful first look, heartfelt vows (and a fist
bump!) during the ceremony. They met 4 years ago while both working on
the Obama campaign, and it seems to be fitting that they’re getting
married just when elections are rolling around again.
Both Myesha and Craig are full of style, and I adored the urban elegance and bright colors
that filled this day. They also incorporated bits of Myesha’s Jamaican
heritage into the wedding, with little jars of rum as favors and a cake
that was brought in straight from Jamaica!
The Couple: Myesha and Craig
The Wedding: 9.29.12 - Maguire Gardens - Los Angeles, CA
What three adjectives best describe your wedding? Modern, classic, fun
What was your wedding color palette? Papaya, white, and grey
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? We like things that are modern, clean, and uncomplicated. We wanted to incorporate all of that into the wedding so we kept the colors simple: we wanted the flowers to be understated, with a focus on the accent color of papaya. We wanted the accent color to pop without being overwhelming. We aren’t very traditional so we focused more on having fun and catering to the guests than on wedding traditions. We also loved the contrast of the garden in the heart of the city with skyscrapers - this gave the wedding a little twist and kept it fun.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? The decision I loved most was the location. It was very unique, and made our big day that much more special. We also wanted to focus on lighting to set the mood - which worked out very well with the setting. Getting ready with my bridesmaids and spending time with them was another highlight - I will always cherish that. The last moment that jumps out at me is the first look pictures: for both of us to see each for the first time and for the photographer to capture all that love and emotion was a wonderful memory to hold on to.
What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? Don’t do everything by yourself. Get a planner - even if it's only for week of. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. My wedding planners were great and helped navigate me through a process that is more complicated than one might think. Also, remember to enjoy every moment of the wedding: it will always turn out better than you envision.

Thank you, Myesha and Craig, for sharing your special day!
I have such a treat in store for you today...straight from the designers themselves, the best invitations of 2012! I recently contacted some of our member invitation designers and asked them to send me their favorite project from this past year. Oh, the pretty that flowed into my inbox! From classic and elegant, to mod and bright, industrial steampunk, and sweet country-inspired chickens; the variety, quality, and inspiration here are fantastic. Each designer also sent along a little background information about the couple, inspiration, and final product. Enjoy!
Anticipation: When Junebug asked us what our favorite invitation of the year was we had no idea how to choose! However, after careful consideration, our latest Deco suite from our exclusive Aerogram line won by a slight margin. Why? It's everything an Anticipation invitation should be. It's both vintage and modern, with a mix of elements. An over sized 7x10 fold out invitation layout, our exclusive die-cut mailer and screenprinted bag, a custom lined mailing box, not to mention an adorable monogram and hand drawn Seattle skyline, we had a winner. Also, who doesn't love a flapper girl? Our prediction...2013 is going to be a Gatsby kind of year, and the roaring-twenties are here to stay!

Chic Ink: Daniela and David's invitations featured navy metallic pocketfolds with letterpress invitations and rhinestone accents. The lovely flourish in the corner was a real show-stopper.

Flite: Lisa and Ron's wedding invitations are one of our favorites this year! We used heavy cotton paper with gold foil printing. The envelope liners were elegant and sublime! They have an aqua blue and gold floral print that transports you to a mid-summer night's dream. The invitation suite is held together with a delicate silk dupioni ribbon and two golden swans.
This invitation evokes a sense of romanticism and luxury, while maintaining a timeless elegance, and that's why it's on our favorite list!
Ink Fancy: After several years of mostly vintage romantic stationery requests, I had a ball designing Sarah and Vanko's pop modern invitation. Their personal aesthetic is simple and modern, almost precise. They wanted that reflected in their invitation, along with just a bit of boldness. In another move that I'm seeing more often, they requested we forgo all of the bells and whistles of multiples envelopes, response cards, maps and belly bands. Of course, who needs all that hoopla with an oversized, square invitation in bold colors, letterpress printed on luscious paper?
Izzy Girl: This was one of my favorite sets of 2012 because of the sweet playfulness and also because of the couple (they were SO fun to work with and funny!). The wedding was at the groom's family home on Lake Washington. Rachel and Nate's criteria: fun, not overly stuffy, and needs to include water! The end result was a beautiful letterpress set that was true to the couple.
Kerri Efendi Designs: Monochromatic reds set the stage for a country chic garden wedding. Country elegance, paired with whimsical text marked this letterpress invitation for Lindsey and Doug.
Laura Hooper Calligraphy: We're so
excited to share our twist on the immensely popular boarding pass
invitation. While we've been offering full color passes for a while, we've
started to do these in letterpress as well for a more elegant approach to
this whimsical invitation style. Our sets include letterpressed invitation
cards, custom sleeves to hold the sets, an rsvp postcard and matching
envelope liners. I have more photos of others we've done if you're
interested but this is one in chocolate brown palm trees and gold foil
lettering. We hope you love it as much as we do!
Nicole Mae Paper Design: There are a MILLION things I loved about Shannon and Tom’s wedding stationery. The bride is a wedding planner with impeccable taste and her vision for her own wedding was dreamy. Taupe and blush became our primary colors for the suite and we found perfect, thick envelopes to compliment. The fonts we chose and extra details made it incredibly special. The complete suite included a taupe invitation with white text, a custom striped envelope liner and baker’s twine that held the cards together, finished with a fun shaped monogram tag.

Paper Fling: Creating a meaningful custom invitation is one of the favorite parts of my job! Lauren and Ross came to me looking for a vintage peach theme because Ross’s parents own a peach farm. We created a peach themed wedding invitation ensemble that included a vintage peach crate designed save the date and corresponding pieces (such as rehearsal dinner invitations and gift bags) and then matched that fun design with a more subtle design on their invitation and reception stationery to carry the theme throughout their entire event.

Paper Moxie: I am passionate for unusual materials and metal had my attention this past season for it's sense of permanence, versatility and presence. When I had the opportunity to design without boundaries for Gianna and Brian's event held at SoDo Park, it was a perfect match of taste. Their eclectic, somewhat steampunk styling was set off using clear shine graphics on rich matte paper, heavy copper plate invitations, cog details, and ticket-stub styled insert cards. They were inspired by vintage street signage, industrial architecture and most importantly, the mechanics and symbolism of the old safe on location at the SoDo venue which became a motif that carried through from Save the Date to day of items. I was thrilled to hear some friends had melted down the copper from the invite to create matching bracelets for the couple as a keepsake! Brilliant.
Paper Passionista: Hands down, my favorite invitation we worked on this year was this beautiful letterpress cherry wood invitation. Barb and Russ described wanting to have an invitation done with natural products to reflect the natural setting of Camp Korey where they were holding their wedding. Barb thought a wood invitation would be great because Russ has a hobby of wood working, and had made a beautiful custom wood box to hold her engagement ring when he proposed. We combined her favorite font, American Scribe, with a wood product, and with Real Card Studio we came up with this beautiful cherry wood design. We backed it with an espresso card stock that doubled as a pocket on the back of the invitation to hold all of their cherry enclosure cards. The “cherry on top” was the luscious botanical paper used for the envelope liner. This invitation is a visual and tactile delight!

Swash Letterpress: I love playing with unique shapes and putting a fun twist on traditional colors. With so much inspiration around the holiday season this invitation was a thrill to create. But the most important reason this is one of my favorites of 2012 is that it's for one of my very best friends. Truly made with love.
Zenadia Design: For this rustic elegance invitation, I wanted to use wood, though not in the traditional "wood invitation" way. Instead, the invitation itself was housed in a custom made wooden frame. Every single frame was lovingly made by hand specifically for each invitation. The frames were then placed on a bed of faux fur in a bright red box. It's a favorite of mine simply because it's so outside the box and was an amazing piece to work on!
I'm completely in awe of our amazing Junebug members...so much talent, style, and creativity! And please check back Wednesday, when we do it all again with our florist members. They are sharing their favorite bouquets of 2012, and it is a whole lot of gorgeous!
Morgan and Matt celebrated last summer at one of our favorite places here in Washington, Bella Luna Farms. Complete with organic gardens, a glass-roofed grapehouse, and stone buildings surrounded by the sweetest farm animals, the working farm manages something that most such places do not - it is stunningly beautiful! Michèle M. Waite's pretty images captured the gorgeous setting and the perfectly executed wedding that Chambers and Company created with the happy couple!
The Goals: We wanted the wedding to be warm and intimate. This started with the guest list. When I walked down the aisle, I wanted to know that everyone watching us was someone who loves us and whom we love. The venue, flowers, and signage all embodied warmth and intimacy. We also really wanted to treat our guests to great food and drinks. We worked hard to make the menu special and fun. Speaking of fun, that was also a priority! We wanted the event to be interactive - guests traveled to the first food station in groups after finding their names and destinations on flags; rather than asking guests to sign a guest book we asked that they fingerprint a leaf on a tree using a stamp pad; and a large group of the ladies choreographed (weeks before the wedding) a super-secret Flashmob!
The Vision: We wanted it to be classy but fun and un-stuffy! Our stationery and signage was fun and whimsical, and Bella Luna did an amazing job keeping the flowers consistent with the theme. We were optimistic about the weather and wanted to highlight the beauty of the farm and the Pacific Northwest. The food was intended to be fun and interesting and...delicious! We wanted something different than a traditional cake, so in keeping with the idea of allowing our guests to be part of the wedding rather than just observers, we offered a make-your-own ice cream sandwich bar.
The Look: I wanted my dress to be simple and sophisticated. I wore diamond studs that we rented through our jeweler. My hair was in a messy updo with flowers from the farm and my shoes were a fun navy shade that matched Matt’s tie. I think we both wanted to be comfortable and still feel like ourselves, but our best selves!
The Moments: I had a few favorite parts of the day. My dad’s speech was killer - everyone was in awe. I loved seeing him up there. I later asked him how long the speech took him to prepare and he said “15 years.” It was sweet. Also, Matt and I found a little time to steal away in the middle of the wedding. We ended up in the apartment above the barn toasting and taking a shot of whiskey together. It was a very special moment. And the most fun time was the flashmob! It was really an amazing scene and one I’ll never forget. Getting the ladies up there having so much fun really set the mood for the rest of the wedding. I didn’t even stop dancing long enough to eat an ice cream sandwich and I have a serious sweet tooth!
I feel like all our planning was a success. We had the dream team! Our planner, Lisa Chambers; Pam and Suzie at Bella Luna; Austin Beaver, our DJ; our photographer Michèle M. Waite; Lisa Dupar and her catering team; Sheryl Bracken of Paper Moxie...they all blew us away! We gave Pam at Bella Luna a ton of artistic freedom with the flowers and I’m glad we did - we knew her vision would far surpass anything we could suggest.
The Pros: Please visit Morgan and Matt's page in our Real Wedding Library for more information on their dream team!
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful day with us Morgan and Matt. It was the perfect antidote to winter. A huge congrats to you!
I love anniversary photo shoots - they're such a sweet way to celebrate your marriage and relationship as it grows and changes over the years. Today we have an absolutely darling one, that is especially close to our hearts, because the darling, beaming, stylish gal you see in these photos is our very own Junebug Membership Administrator, Emily. She and her husband Ryan Flynn (a talented wedding photographer and Junebug member himself) celebrated their 3rd wedding anniversary with this wonderful set of photos by Ryan Ray Photography which capture their personalities and spirit perfectly. Emily is an absolutely invaluable member of our Junebug team and a joy to be around. She keeps us organized, on-track, and laughing like crazy - a great combination! I simply don't know what we would do without her, so I am over-the-moon to get to share these beautiful and meaningful photos here on What Junebug Loves!
From Emily: When our photos were taken at our wedding 3 years ago, never could I image the joy, endless laughter and immense love that would deepen over the years for my husband, Ryan.
They say your wedding is the happiest day of your life. It is, but in my opinion I think the days, months and years that follow take that particular prize. You study, grow and learn more about your spouse. You take comfort in knowing that they will love you unconditionally and aren't going anywhere, whether you have a good day or a bad day. You begin to understand more clearly why this person was placed in your life, why you chose to do life together. Without Ryan, I am not complete. He is my other half. He inspires me. He challenges me. He makes me want to be better. We are connected.
My sweet husband decided to surprise me with a photo shoot for our third anniversary with one of the kindest film photographers we know, Ryan Ray. As my husband is a photographer as well, he was really looking forward to seeing someone else's photographic vision. We were already headed to Texas for Ryan's little sister's wedding, so it was the perfect opportunity.
About the surprise. Ryan is not the best at holding in surprises because he just gets too darn excited and can't wait to spill every last bean. He also wisely knew that I'd want time to plan my outfits before the shoot. So, one night a couple weeks before we left, he came down the stairs and sat next to me on the couch, put his arm around me and said he knew that I'd been wanting recent pictures of us, and that we hadn't had any taken since our wedding, so SURPRISE he planned a photo shoot for us for our anniversary. I was thrilled, and, to be honest, a bit nervous, since I am kind of shy in front of a camera.
Ryan Ray brought his sweet wife, Cary, along and we got to cuddle with their huge Mastiff that we so badly wanted to put in our suitcase and take home. We all felt like instant friends, and we absolutely loved the photos. It was perfect getting to find a photographer who we connected with in an artistic and a personal way.
From photographer Ryan Ray: Ryan and Emily quickly became two of my favorite people - kindred spirits. My wife and I talked about how much we wished they lived closer to us. Ryan is such an incredible photographer - it was an honor to photograph him. And Emily couldn't be any sweeter. They shared so much joy, and Emily's smile could light up any room. I could photograph them all day, any day. It was definitely an afternoon I will not soon forget. Happy anniversary, Ryan and Emily. It is such a blessing to know you.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos with us Em and Ryan! We love you so!
It's hard to know where to begin in introducing Lauren and Jon's sweet vineyard wedding - from the vintage decor and soft pink, blue and gold wedding color palette to the crisp, fresh photos from Dan Stewart Photography every bit of this day is eye candy! To tell you all about it, we have both the bride, Lauren, and wedding planner Alicia Caldecott of A Day in May Event Planning & Design...
The Couple: Lauren and Jon
The Wedding: 6.23.12 - Ciccone Vineyard & Winery - Suttons Bay, MI
What three adjectives best describe your wedding day?
The Bride, Lauren: Romantic, elegant, timeless
Was there a decor theme that ran through your wedding? What was the inspiration for that particular idea and how did it reflect you as a couple?
Wedding Planner, Alicia Caldecott: Lauren came to A Day in May Event Planning & Design wanting to incorporate tri-metallics (gold, white gold, and rose gold) and a very refreshing blue/green tone - which we aptly dubbed Leland Blue Stone - into her wedding day decor. The stationery was wildly important in creating the romantic, vintage, layered look Lauren wanted, and the lace on her gown added a timeless quality to her vision. The location selection of Ciccone Vineyard also played a part in the design. Lauren and Jon were not looking to have a “vineyard theme” wedding but rather wanted to play homage to the beautiful location through subtle details.
What were some of the different ways you used decor elements to create the beautiful, cohesive event you were envisioning?
Alicia: The design for Lauren and Jon’s wedding was inspired by their romance, a timeless sophistication, and a love of all things beautiful. We used every ounce of Ciccone’s hilltop scenery to create a cohesive event: the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception were all held on location, and each was designed with a dominant metallic to highlight Lauren’s love of the layered hues.
Ceremony: During the ceremony, we wanted all eyes on the bride and groom - but we knew it was important to frame their love story using the altar and aisle. While Lauren and Jon were the focal point, we suspended a crystal chandelier over the altar, lined the aisle with petals, and embellished wrought iron gates with floral and vines.
Cocktails: After the ceremony, the guests flooded the lawn to mingle and navigate through cocktail tables draped in soft ivory fabrics. Guests enjoyed a variety of beverages, including two signature drinks in mint julep cups which included two types of wine bottled on site. Blues, pinks, and coral florals were present in the whimsical table and bar decoration, along with vines and wild garlic.
Dinner: The dining tent was the introduction and backdrop for the after-wedding festivites. At the entrance, guests were greeted by a stacked wine bottle display and wood veneer escort cards - which were foiled in Lauren's signature tri-metallics and set with Leland Blue calligraphy. The tent itself was draped in rich gold hues, and custom copper wine charms acted as place cards and party favors. On one side of the tent, a mirrored bar and wall displayed the couple's new monogram, and the west wall opened up to reveal a stunning panoramic view of the vineyard and rolling hills - with a viewing deck to take it all in. The tables, covered in trimetallic and blue linens, were topped with an ornate place-setting and accented with a stunning foil letterpressed menu. Florals and candlelight were abundant: bright pink, fuschia, tangerine, and coral flowers coupled by towering gilded branches with delicately hung candles were the crowning glory to the beauty of the space.
Dancing: Guests passed by the centennial barn on the property en route to the ceremony - little did they know, it would house the dance party as the final touch of the beautiful vineyard wedding. After dinner, the bride and groom escorted their guests to their “lounge” where the band played and played and played! Eggplant sofas and rose gold seating arrangements were flanked by festooned columns and dramatic overhead lighting.
Where did you choose to hold your wedding, and how did the location influence your decor decisions?
Alicia: Lauren and Jon fell in love with the beautiful vistas and privacy of Ciccone Vineyard & Winery, its proximity to Traverse City, as well as Black Star Farms (where the family and wedding party were staying for the weekend). Ciccone was also very flexible in allowing us to create a look specifically for Lauren and Jon; it was a blank canvas for their individual and unique style.
Looking back, do you have a favorite project or successful decor idea from your wedding? Tell us what you loved about it!
The Bride, Lauren: Our custom monogram was something that was really unique and helped to tie everything together. We used various forms of it on the save the date, invitations, custom bar, cocktail napkins, etc. And we now use it in our home!

Lyndsey and Bobby planned a beautiful semi-destination wedding weekend at one of Washington's treasures and member of our new Venue Hotlist - Cave B Estate Winery in Quincy, Washington. Cave B is simply spectacular, with incredible views of the Columbia River Gorge that go on for miles, plus amazing amenities and service that the couple's guests were able to enjoy throughout the weekend. I can't get enough of these stunning images that Junebug member Belathée Photography snapped, and which perfectly capture the natural environment, glowing sunset, and once again...that view!
The Couple: Lyndsey and Bobby
The Wedding: 8.27.11 - Cave B Estate Winery - Qunicy, WA
What three adjectives best describe your wedding day? Timeless, organic, breathtaking
Was there a decor theme that ran through your wedding? What was the inspiration for that particular idea and how did it reflect you as a couple? First of all, I would have to say the main color theme of the wedding was canary yellow. The bridesmaids wore canary yellow, the bride's shoes were canary yellow, and the majority of the accent colors were canary yellow. We wanted something very natural and timeless. Cave B was a stunning backdrop already, and True Colors Events really helped us desgin a cohesive, gorgeous look. We utilized the organic surroundings as well as the late summer/early autumn setting as color, decor, and flower inspiration. As a couple, Bobby and I are very understated, easy going, and relaxed. The whole flow of the wedding was meant to focus on the guests just as much as it was to focus on us. We wanted guests to feel comfortable, and enjoy the beauty of where they were. We wanted a weekend event where everyone could get away and relax before, during and after the wedding. And, we were so happy that it was all beautifully captured by Belathée Photography!
What were some of the different ways you used decor elements to create the beautiful, cohesive event you were envisioning? The ceremony took place close to the time of sunset, and we really wanted to take those sunset colors and the general feeling from the ceremony into the cocktail hour, then finally into the reception. For colors, we brought in canary yellow to complement and brighten the sunset hues. We had warm, textural floral arrangements of yellow and orange seasonal flowers that even included sagebrush branches that our florist, Fiore Blossoms, collected from the property. The linens were a deep maroon/red and goldish color which, again, brought those sunset colors into the reception room.
We also really loved the vintage look of mercury glass. When lit with candles, it makes for a very muted, romantic flicker. That was one element that was a must during the reception as well. We maintained the color theme in the menus for the reception meal - we used the same pattern that the guests had seen in their invitations and programs. It was a simple pattern with elements of canary yellow and yellow poppy.
The cocktail hour and reception food was fantastic. Most of the food was grown on site, so the food was very much in season and organic to the area. We even kept with the organic theme having a citrus and spiced cake. Delicious!
Where did you choose to hold your wedding, and how did the location influence your decor decisions? The wedding was held at Cave B in Eastern Washington. One of the reasons why we loved the location so much was that it embodied everything we were looking for in a wedding: amazing views, expansive grounds that were ours to use, semi-destination. It's a very unpretentious but beautiful location. We wanted to work with the setting, not against it. The ceremony backdrop was a view of the Columbia River gorge. We kept the ceremony decor simple and really let the location shine!
Looking back, do you have a favorite project or successful decor idea from your wedding? Tell us what you loved about it! Something we did that I’m really thankful for was instead of having a guest book, we had Bobby's dad construct us a shadow box where guests wrote well wishes and blessings on pieces of paper and dropped them in. Cave B is a winery as well as a venue, so we were able to keep one bottle from our wedding in the shadow box with the well wishes surrounding it. On our first anniversary, we drank the wine, read all of the wonderful comments from our friends and family, and watched our wedding video. It was a fantastic way to celebrate and remember our wedding one year later.
Lastly, I loved having a semi-destination wedding. It was not so far away as to deter a lot of people and close enough where guests did have the option of having a late night drive back to their homes. I wanted our guests to be able to spend a weekend with us, instead of one short evening. During the day our friends and family went for hikes, sat by the pool, went golfing, went wine tasting and just had the opportunity to relax. I think it set the mood for a fun and joyous wedding. We felt extremely blessed!
