Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Raquel and Jason’s glam nautical affair is the perfect blend of summertime and ballroom chic. From the striking blue lighting of the reception to the charming anchor cake topper, we love this hot weather wedding from Monterey, California for its unique twist on a traditionally preppy aesthetic. Thanks to Nerinna Studios for sharing the day with us! You can see even more details in our full gallery.

Jason and Raquel met through mutual friends at a Dave & Buster’s. After eight years of dating, Jason proposed during a gondola ride in Venice, Italy. After celebrating so many previous anniversaries at the Monterey Plaza Hotel, the couple knew it would be the perfect place to have their wedding.

DIY: Watercolor Table Number Holders
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By Brittni Mehlhoff

Incorporate your wedding colors in an unexpected way with these do-it-yourself sign holders. This painted plaster project is perfect for all kinds of reception details, including table numbers, escort cards, small food markers, and more. Aside from adding an extra touch to your big day, this project has one more upside: the price. At around 30 cents per piece in materials, it is probably one of the least expensive wedding projects you’ll ever make!

Materials: Plaster powder • Water • Spoon • Acrylic paint • Paint brush • Rotary tool or hand saw • Matte medium or other sealant • Ice cube tray mold like this one

Step One. Mix powder plaster with water until a consistency similar to pancake batter is reached.

Step Two. Pour mixture into molds with a spoon and gently tap the entire mold once completely filled, to level out the mixture on the top surface.

Step Three. Wait for it to dry and harden, which usually happens between 20 and 60 minutes. Remove from mold and let the pieces air dry over night to finish the curing process.

Step Four. Using a rotary tool or hand saw, carefully cut a slit in the top point, all the way across about 1/8 to 1/4 inch deep. This will be where you insert escort cards, table numbers etc, later. Remove any debris from the slit.

Step Five. Seal with matte medium to prevent the paint from being absorbed too quickly and then begin painting. Dipping a brush in plain water first and applying to the surface is recommended to achieve more of a watercolor look. Mix acrylic paint with a little bit of water and begin applying to the surface. Dipping the paint brush back into a cup of water between strokes will add to the watercolor effect.

Step Six. Seal with matte medium or other sealant and let dry. Place a cardstock table number, escort card, menu, etc into the slit and you are finished!
