Natalie and Sarah hosted a black tie affair complete with dancing and dessert in honor of their mother, Ann-Marie. Inspiration from the venue, jardin de palmeras, made its way to the invitation in the form of a palm tree from our extensive motif collection while Debi Zeinert’s hand calligraphy was a whimsical addition.

We loved the way our modern Roosevelt letterpress invitation set the tone for this vintage aircraft hangar inspiration shoot at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, California. Photographer Shhivika Chauhan pulled together an incredibly talented team of vendors to create the shoot, which featured a feathery Rosa Clara gown with a vintage vibe, gold sequined tablecloths, and eye-catching florals from Green Petal Designs. Here are a few of our favorite shots from the shoot, but be sure to check out Le Magnifique to see more photos!
