This weekend I’m headed back to the Farm at Putah Creek, for clients Colby and Will. Look for more Do It Yourself details in the coming days and weeks from the four weddings I did this month. Phew! What a May.
I was looking for origami necklaces and spotted these by Bay Areas-based Etsy seller SewSmashing. She makes the same origami butterfly pieces for boutonnières too. Great prices too: 3 for $23 for the hair pins and 5 for $31 for bouquet placement.
From this wedding at the Faculty Club in Berkeley, Calif. Photo by Bay Area photographer Kate Harrison. Check out her blog too, where I saw this Wayne Thiebaud-inspired cake display. Such brilliance! Wayne Thiebaud is one of my faves, especially since he paints cakes and sweets like the dickens.
One of my favorite things about Kate is her devotion to green weddings. She started Bee Green last fall to encourage sustainability practices for her clients. Rad, right?
Which brings me to a Lily Spruce tip: when selecting photographers, ask them how they’re a green business. Do they bike to client meetings? Take public transportation? Shoot digital and send digital after shooting events to save paper? Do they have most of their info on their Web site or PDF documents they can send you, like their rate sheets? All good questions to ask if you really want to have others walk the walk with you on wedding day…
