la Happy In Print – Seattle Met Bride & Groom


It’s always fun to see your work in print, especially when the shoot is this 0ver-the-top lovely! I was recently able to be part of a tabletop styled shoot, styled by Steve Moore of Sinclair & Moore Events for Seattle Met Bride & Groom Magazine. Steve designed a table with a French Market theme (a fresh, take on French Market… which doesn’t always happen). The table featured a fresh take on toile (with a lovely toil cake by Tallant House), simple (loved how un-fluffy the tea towel look is!). French linens and day of stationery by me, la Happy, including wood menus (Yes! REAL wood) and custom navy tags with guests names calligraphed in white ink then tied around French baguettes. …and the chandeliers? Yes, they are super fabulous!


The real wood menus were stamped with a custom menu stamp… such a fabulous way to bring a clean, organic feel to your table! I love how clean and simple the table looks. It doesn’t feel fussy or over done, it’s vintage perfection! It was such a pleasure to work on this shoot. I always love trying new ideas. Someone needs to incorporate some navy with white details into their wedding STAT – it is just so beautiful!

la Happy + Bespoke Style Studio on Martha Stewart Weddings


It was so fun to see a wood invitation I recently designed for a rehearsal dinner pop up on a Martha Stewart Weddings online slide show! I worked with the sweet bride, Crystal of Bespoke Style Studio on her invitations for her beautiful Tabernash, Colorado, ranch rehearsal dinner. The invitation is real wood, with the wording rubber stamped in white ink. I so love all her sweet details, check out the entire slide show of the dinner here.

Wedding Sparrow + la Happy


A few months back I had the pleasure of working with a fabulous team of wedding vendors organized by Sara, the editor/founder of Wedding Sparrow (a seriously lovely wedding blog, check it out!). The result of the collaboration was this out-of-this-world, beautiful shoot shot on the English country side.

©lahappy_weddingsparrow_1I calligraphied the invitation set, menus and place cards in gray ink on cream paper in a modern romantic lettering. I love how simple the paper goods are when paired with the incredibly lovely florals by Bo Boutique Florals . …oh and that Claire Pettibone dress? Amazing!


©lahappy_weddingsparrow_3I love all of the bright details against the earthy-tones of a gray countryside. I love how Sara kept the styling so simple – what a breath of fresh air! The photography by Aneta Mak is so beautiful. I love the way she captured all the little details of the table. I just adore this shoot! Check out the entire thing on Wedding Sparrow!
