OUR WEDDING INVITE PROCESS

our wedding invitations was such a special process to us, so i can’t help but share the details with ya! i’ll admit that the invites were probably the most time consuming wedding detail and there might have been a moment there where i wanted to just send out a mass text “come to our wedding!” but i’m SO happy with the end results. it was worth the efforts (and the money)! i couldn’t have done it without the help of my dear friend  we had brainstorming meetings together, she guided me on the printing process, and even helped me assemble them. thank you aud!!

ok, now! let me breakdown our wedding invitations…

DESIGN PROCESS…

once i had my ring, my dress and the venue…the inspiration and theme began to come alive. i put together a mood board for all of our vendors (using my fave ) including the designers for our invitations. i wanted it to have this southern romance, old new orleans vibe with hints of art deco, Gatsby and old hollywood.

my friend sent me and i fell in love with it! we hired to design the artwork for our invite and he was a joy to work with. here is a few of his sketches in progress…

A FEW OF MY HEALING RESOURCES

a few weeks back i was in ojai sitting on a blanket outside, next to this small running creek in the mountains, birds chirping, the perfect breeze, dappled sun coming through the trees (does it sound like a disney movie yet? because it felt like one!) i thought to myself…”man, has the world always been like this?” the word “awakening” has never really resonated with me…well mostly because i wasn’t at that point in my life and i thought the word sounded kinda cheesy. but in the past year, with a LOT of soul searching, reading, listening, learning, therapy, exploration…i have found a peace that i have never felt before. i do feel like the sun shines differently, and that i can find a sense of calm where i used to experience fear. i have started to understand mindfulness and have learned tools that i am sure will change my life forever. i really wanted to make a post of the resources i have been using and get your feedback if you have suggestions too! i still love this platform very much for this reason.

i also have this LONG post about my journey to self love right here. sorry if i repeat myself some, this is all new to me!

about two years ago i started EMDR therapy (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) it’s supposed to help alleviate the distress associated with trauma. i have some significant emotional and sexual childhood trauma that has followed me into my adult years and caused me to form bad patterns that would worsen my anxiety. i felt like i was stuck in a loop of pain. while work has always been my safe space, my outlet, my comfort…i needed to shift and put more focus on ME. who i am. why i didn’t love myself. why i was stuck in this fearful state of anxiety. after a pretty dark depression last year, my weekly therapy appointments and a few other things led me to a state of happiness. so here are some of those…

A BIG SPRING SALE!

one of our favorite brands is having a massive spring sale and we’re here for it! is an LA based brand that both bri and i wear on the regular. ethically made in los angeles, they have effortlessly cool pieces (like i’m buying!). great basics, like my all time favorite tee shirt, and amazing jumpsuits, easy dresses, etc. one of those places, once you order once, you’ll be hooked! they are doing 40% off all their sale pieces with code” SPRINGCLEAN”. they usually do this once a year and i make sure to stock up on my favorites! act fast, things sell out very quickly!

 – i own this top and love it. linen/cotton blends are some of my favorite fabrics and it looks so clean with jenas!

 – dream tee! anything ribbed and in this pale pink combo with a subtle v-neck is everything good!

  – slightly boxy, dusty sage green and super easy to wear!

 – cotton cashmere blend, perfect summer sweater after a day at the beach or over a long dress.

 – bri and i both have these, a great fit. true to size.

 – i have the pantsuit version of this dress and get so much use out of it. this wrap dress is the perfect transition piece into spring and summer!

 – a classic striped tee is a great wardrobe staple. i wear this one at least once a week!

 – my friend merritt was wearing this a couple of weekends ago and it a great look, a little retro but sophisticated.

 – never enough frank tees in my closet!

love these and also the below!

and below is the that bri has, it’s super cute on!

PANZANELLA

panzanella | designlovefest

whenever we make something vegetarian i find that we end up countering the lack of meat with a lot of dairy/cheese. ivan and i had a strong urge to throw some feta or mozzarella on top of this salad but we resisted and instead focused on the vegetables and using great bread and olive oil. it ended up being really colorful, delicious and filling and is completely vegan! the bread matters, we got ours at in echo park which is our favorite market. visit your local bakery, buy some good bread, it’s always worth it! for the red onion, i did half roasted and half fresh, i liked the combo of the flavors but up to you on that part. – joanie

what you’ll need: 
serves 3

• 3 cups bread cubed
• 2 cups tomatoes
• 2 Persian cucumbers
• 1 large yellow bell pepper sliced
• quarter cup olives
•1 red onion sliced
• 1 lemon
• basil
• micro greens (arugula, frisee or any type of bitter greens)
• olive oil
• 1 avocado diced

• start by pre-heating your oven to 375 degrees. in a large bowl add the cubed bread and drizzle with olive oil. toss until lightly coated, don’t over oil! spread onto a lined baking sheet and add the yellow bell pepper, olives and half of the red onions to the same baking sheet. drizzle oil on the vegetables and olives, mix. sprinkle salt on everything and bake for 15-20 minutes or until bread is golden brown. remove from oven and set aside.

• cube the tomatoes and dice the Persian cucumbers. assemble the salad by first plating with micro greens. add the bread, bell peppers, onions, olives and tomatoes and cucumbers. drizzle with big splash of olive oil, lots of fresh lemon, salt, pepper and garnish with basil and avocado.

we plated these individually but you could also put everything on one big salad board and serve it that way. you really can’t go wrong with this salad, it’s so colorful and fresh, it’s a crowd pleaser!
