The Wedding Pantry

April 29th, 2010

I’m so excited for this post in particular…along with my endeavors and ambitions to rock the stationery world, I’ve started a bridal jewelry line that will eventually spill into other pieces for everyday wear as well!  For starters, my dear friend Eva Chiou from Red Velvet Occasions & Utterly Engaged is opening up a new store, not just any store, but all things bridal called The Wedding Pantry!  How cute is that!!  Here are reasons why you must visit:

- There will be an area to rent for planners and brides to have meetings for their upcoming nuptials…no more coffee houses, cafes, restaurants…an official meeting place at The Wedding Pantry.

- It will also be a place where brides can also come for inspiration.  Old and new magazines will be in another section so that brides can come by and rummage through the stacks for inspirations on their weddings…how awesome is that?? Magazine costs are expensive, especially for wedding mags, so this resource is awesome!

- The 1st online wedding magazine, Utterly Engaged will have their offices in the back and operate from there.  You can visit the lovely Eva, Lucia, Henny, and Allison while they work their magic on the upcoming issues!

- Another section of the store is just that….a store!  All filled with wedding goodies and last minute shopping.  It’s a great place to find everything at once…including JEWELRY! :) My bridal line will be debuting this Saturday!  If you like everyday pieces or something to just jazz you your tshirt, visit my shop HERE. All bridal will be at Wedding Pantry.

So with great local and all-over-the-place vendors in tow, Eva is doing the wedding community a great favor by putting everything in once place for us to all go to.  Even if you’re not a planner, vendor, or bride, it doesn’t matter, I think it’ll be a great place to find inspiration and meet amazing people. :)

EEK!!  I’m so excited about the new jewelry!

Grand Opening: Saturday, May 1 (yes, this Saturday!) 10am – 7pm

138 W. Main Street
Tustin, Ca 92780
Located in Old Town Tustin on El Camino Real and Main Street

I’ll be there in the afternoon jumping for joy so just look for the girl that’s hopping all around! :)

The winner for the last giveaway this month is:

Congratulations to Jenni!!  Check in soon when we have the details all settled and printed for the goodies!

Getting this website up and running has been a love hate relationship…it was definitely a proud moment when I was able to get the site up.  While all the design & layout was done by yours truly, all the wonderful world of coding was done by my good friend and web genius slash graphic designer, Shadi!  I met him while I was working at an art gallery and briefly spoke to him my first week working while he was on his way out to Costa Rica! (I was jealous!)  Since then, we’ve become great friends and learned that his kryptonite is Jamba Juice. ;)  The reason I say genius is because for fun, he designs games for iphone apps!!!  Visit his site and his download his apps located in the sidebar.  enjoy!

…next post…inspirations. promise. photos. really.

Just recently I had the pleasure of working on a photoshoot with Lydia of Ever Ours, Lauryl Lane, & Adrienne Gunde.  We all worked together so smoothly and the ideas that were envisioned and discussed turned out better than we had imagined!  Check out the entire post and photos on Style Me Pretty, featured last Friday!


I’ve also been working on new wedding stationery for clients that I will post soon…very soon…these are new little gems that I’m super excited about!  In the meantime, a new necklace that I’m putting up in my shop to hold you over until my next stationery post!

This one is called ‘Josephine’ as she was my muse for this piece! :)
