Two treats for you today! A lovely wedding from Jose Villa, and a giveaway of his new book!
Zoe and John were married at the beautiful Bear Flag Farm in August – lots of pretty pastels and illustrations by the groom…
Says planner Michelle Miyairi from Bliss’d, “With its lavender fields and citrus trees, Bear Flag Farm had the perfect combination of just enough vintage, romance and whimsy. We didn’t want the color palette to be restricted so we started with yellows, grays and pale blue and ended up throwing in some peaches and pinks.”
John drew little illustrations of himself and of Zoe, which were printed on pins that said “I Know the Bride” or “I Know the Groom.” Table numbers were rubber stamped on heavy kraft tags.
