A couple of weeks ago we showed a Wine Country Wedding from Jenne Hohn Events and Zoom Photography that had a scrapbooking area {here} set up during the reception. And I know that photo booths are all the rage right now. Deep-down inside I’m a scrapbooker at heart and I really love the idea of setting up some sort of posh scrapbooking station, next to a photo booth, during a daytime cocktail hour! Fill a table with all sorts of art pens and elegant embellishments (not cheesy wedding ones) and let the inner artists in your guests shine through! Scrapbook supplies today are astonishly gorgeous. Memory Makers is just one of the great online sources for inspiration {ps …  I think Abby did an interview with them to be published in the fall!}. Plus, of course there’s the great scrapbooking product line from Martha Stewart. Basic Grey has swirly rub-ons and tons of bling. And Heidi Swapp has just about anything for any style! Sorry … I digress!

On to Rose and Sunil’s Cocktail Hour and Reception!

They joined their guests for a few brief hugs and then headed off for a little alone time and a few more photos …

And now from sweet Rose …

Sunil and I met in New York through friends. We connected right away and dated for a few months before he suddenly had to move to LA for a job. We lost touch for about 3 years then he bought a house and sent an email to everyone with his new information. We got back in touch and it was as if no time had passed. I came to visit him on August 19 and a year later … to the day … he proposed.

We were married the following May at Stone Manor. We both knew we wanted an outdoor setting for the wedding, and in LA you can do that without much fear of bad weather. Stone Manor was the second place we saw and I knew instantly it was the right place for us. The gardens were so pretty but not too stuffy or formal. It just felt like us. As for design, our planner Lisa Gorjestani helped us a lot after meeting with us. She came to our house and picked up on our own style and went from there. We’re pretty casual and we tend to like a simpler, more natural style and she just got it right away.

You all … just got it! A very charming affair …
