heather and tommy | modern palm springs destination wedding

i’m so excited to feature heather & tommy’s destination wedding in palm springs on the blog! heather was absolutely gorgeous in her amy kuschel gown–i loved its lace details! heather and tommy started the day getting ready (and catching some rays by the pool!) in neighboring mid-century modern palm springs homes. the casa de monte vista was the perfect estate for their day–its intimate, elegant and romantic vibe was representative of its location in palm springs’ historic old las palmas neighborhood. the spanish style architecture nestled among the palm trees made guests of the wedding feel right at home.

it’s obvious how much care and attention heather and tommy put into the details of their day. from their gorgeous invitations and welcome bags, tommy’s succulent boutonniere, the custom copper bracelets heather gifted her bridesmaids, the handlettered wooden signs cut by tommy’s father and “LOVE” signs gifted by heather’s bridesmaids, the farmhouse table decor and pretty florals, it’s clear that heather and tommy were surrounded by friends and family who loved them, and an incredible team of vendors who made their beautiful wedding day vision come to life. heather and tommy are two incredibly kind, loving, and easygoing people and it was such an honor to document their fun wedding day! enjoy!

friday favorites | calligraphy by rachel jacobson

you might say i have a knack for winning instagram giveaways. the first time around, i won a beautiful pair of earrings from emma holland denvir. a few weeks ago, when i heard rachel jacobson was giving away a beautiful handlettered piece featuring one of my favorite quotes i had no reservations in entering the contest–and soon enough, i won!

i was drawn to rachel’s work because not only is her calligraphy beautiful, but she also incorporates literary quotes into her pieces–and i absolutely love quotes. i first discovered her work after seeing a scroll she created for a styled shoot featuring a quote from rumi, and after that, i was sold! =) rachel specializes in wedding & event calligraphy and design.

here is a peek at my new piece of art featuring a quote on beauty by ernest hemingway. (thanks rachel!) and the next time you see a giveaway post while scrolling through your instagram feed, enter it! you never know what might happen…

happy friday!

love,

p

a watercolor inspiration shoot with amber events!

over a year ago, i bought a pad of watercolor paper and an assortment of paints and brushes to inspire me to paint more often. i’ve used them sparingly since then, but i still consider the paints a worthy investment and look forward to the day when i can take some watercolor classes for fun! i hope that maybe in the future i’ll become even slightly as talented and advanced as one of my best friends, clara, but in the meantime my personal set of paints are sitting in a mason jar for a rainy day.

all this to say, i recently had the privilege of working with the amber events team on a collaborative shoot, and i was so excited when we chose the theme of watercolor wedding inspiration! i captured the process of creating watercolor table numbers, canvas signs, and banners. we even were able to have one of our brides who created watercolor invitations for her wedding join in on the fun, as a bona fide expert! ;) i had such a great time getting to know jackie, vanessa, and karly of the amber events team, and as well as our bride sara.

here’s a look at our watercolor wedding inspiration shoot! (and just in case you were wondering, at the end of the shoot i was able to indulge in my secret desire to be a better painter with my own watercolor creation, which you can see here!)

for more details on how to create watercolor wedding decor of your own, visit the amber events blog feature! and stay tuned for more posts featuring these lovely ladies and their insight on the coordination/design side of the wedding industry!

inspired monday: finding your calling

fabienne frederickson calling quote

laughter, hugs, smiles
hearing and sharing love stories.
learning how two people came to delight in one another.

i was amazed at how much love plays a role in my life and it dawned upon me:

i was made for this.
i was made for this.

no matter what i do, love stories will always be a part of my life because it’s a part of who i am.

my name is paulina and i love love.
i was made for this.

what are some of the great loves in your life? the things that despite the years, you just can’t shake? the things that always find your way into determining how you spend your days, in one way or another?
