Bird Theme Wedding at the Acqua Hotel :: Lisa & Nick

I’ve loved this wedding ever since I first saw a few details from it in the Winter 2006 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. I’ve seen a few more photos from it here and there, and I’m sure many of you have too, but I thought it would be fun to get it all in one place for a Snippet & Ink feature. The bride, Lisa Wong, is the creative talent behind Good On Paper Design, so it’s no surprise that her wedding is full of charming details, all of which were captured by the equally talented Lisa Lefkowitz.




The couple’s Boston Terrier, Pixel, was their ring bearer.





The ceremony took place at the Acqua Hotel in Mill Valley, overlooking Richardson Bay.





Lisa designed and printed all of the wedding stationery. The invitations were accompanied by a booklet explaining the story of how Lisa and Nick met: After seeing each other on BART for about two months, Lisa left a note on Nick’s car that said “You’re a cutie. Hi.” Nick responded with a note on Lisa’s windshield with his phone number, and their first phone call lasted four hours. They’ve been together ever since!



Birds were a central theme throughout the wedding, from the stationery to the cake.




In lieu of a guest book, guests were asked to write the couple well wishes on little blue note cards. Guests were also invited to enter a raffle to win items made by the couple.





Instead of fondant, the passion fruit cake was decorated with white chocolate.



Thank you so much to Lisa and Nick for sharing this special day, and happy anniversary this month!
