Z-Fold Invitation folded into 3 panels. The lower half is a panoramic shot of our venue that I took myself. I had a ton of analysis paralysis deciding what my invitation would look like. I wanted to do something original so I decided on a z-fold (don't see much of that). It took a ton of work even required me to learn a little bit of Illustrator and Photoshop but I definitely love the end result!

I have been a crazy woman about who will be doing my hair and makeup. I have no idea why that has been my obsession. Maybe because I've been SOL'd so many times on finding a good one. I reached out to Giao in February (since she had so many awesome reviews) but she was booked! I had a trial with someone from a popular hair/makeup team in the Bay Area but that went horrible.

As of now, I don't know who will be doing my hair yet but I have finally found someone who is wonderful at makeup! She is a God send. Her name is Sharelle and she is based out of the East Bay. Below is a shot of my trial with her (please excuse the hair). I brought in a picture of what I wanted my makeup to look like and Sharelle did a great job. Her email is sharelleivy@gmail.com if anyone is interested.

For my engagement shoot (which I had done in LA). I went with Kelly Zhang www.kellyzhang.com. She is amazing! Great at both hair and makeup but unfortunately she could not spare the time to travel up to the Bay Area for my wedding. She typically can do 2 brides on one Saturday. That is how efficient she is.

We're getting married at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton. This place worked best for us logistically (since I live in the East Bay) and I loved their barrel room. It also satisfied my requirement that our ceremony and reception be in the same location and also that the vendor be responsive and easy to work with. So far so good with the vendor. Clay at PEC has been very responsive and professional.
