We gave you a quick preview this morning of Karen & Jay's wedding, but now for the whole shebang! This might possibly be the most vibrant, spirited and wonderfully witty wedding we've featured on The Little Black Book Blog!  Sent to us by the lovely ladies at Simply Sparkling Events ~ it is a sheer pleasure to share with you today ...

Karen & Jay were married in the Sculptural Garden at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. Jay is a cartoonist and artist at heart. He and Karen incorporated their artistic talents into their wedding day in so many ways. Jay created a character logo ~ a different spin on a monogram! We used it on their invitations, programs, and menus and even as a label on the bottled water.

Their ceremony took place on the lush green Sculpture Garden behind the De Young Museum Café adorned with one of a kind metal sculptures. GrandiFlora, LLC (another LLB member!) set the stage with two gorgeous flower arrangements. Our color palette was bold and modern~ orange, silver and fuchsia with black accents. Karen with GrandiFlora, took the vision and brought it to life in the most incredible way!
