Giving Back with the Boys and Girls Club

KE6A8030.jpg

Over the past few months I’ve had the pleasure of working with The Boys & Girls Club to redo their art room. One of my goals for the year was to find ways to give back through my design work, and I’m so thankful that this opportunity appeared! I often tell people why I value art education so much because I was lucky enough to have the resources to create and the opportunity to see beautiful spaces from a really early age. I’m thrilled that the kids this community serves now have a new space to explore their creative side!

Thank you so much to Talia Steinhardt for collaborating on the mural, Alissa Noelle Photography for snapping the pics, Emily Marie Heins for the lovely renderings, my bestie Andrew and sister Claire for taking time out of their weekends to help paint, and C3 Los Angeles for donating both their time and money to bring this project to life!

Emily + Mike's Eco-Conscious DIY Wedding

Emily and Mike’s wedding was so much fun! Many of the creative details, like the photoshopped seating cards and colorful ceremony backdrop, were actually handmade by this awesome couple. It was truly an eco-conscious DIY wedding for the books, complete with delicious food and friends and family who came to party!

Thank you BKM Photography for these incredible pictures!

Loved the pop of color and sparkle from Emily’s earrings and shoes.

Totally obsessed with the ceremony backdrop that Emily made! Perfect for their wedding and can easily be used again.

E+M chose Kogi to cater their dinner, which if you’re an LA local (or in-the-know tourist), you know how great of a decision that was.

Cosmic Garden Holiday Party

When Lourdes (aka the boss babe behind Ruby Street) sent me an inspo pic of a celestial garden party for The Ruby Street x Hungry Bear Catering holiday party, my brain went WILD. Cue my gal Val for the epic cosmic floral burst, Collective Rentals for the custom copper chairs (yes, you read that right) and lounge sets, La Piñata bringing it as always with the table top, and last but never ever least, my bff Britt who always hits the good angles!!

Thank you to all the vendors and lovely peeps who made this event so fun and for bringing the good vibes! Cheers!

Kristen + Colin's Colorfully Minimalist Wedding

COLIN  KRISTEN laura_ford_photos_ruby_street-225.jpg

I had such a blast coordinating Kristen and Colin’s colorfully minimalist wedding. Every detail was so intimately “them”, from pies made by their loved ones, all the way down to their tables being organized by favorite dates they’ve had! I am so happy for them and was honored to be part of their day.

Special shoutout to Laura Ford for these amazing shots and all of the other incredible vendors we worked with, listed at the end.

The Ruby Street is one of my go-to venues for LA weddings!

Delicious food catered by one of my favorite vendors, Fundamental LA.

One of my favorite accents at Ruby Street is the customizable letter board out front. You can put your names or wedding hashtag for guests to see upon arrival!

Another favorite moment from K+C’s wedding were the pies made by friends and family to serve with Carmela Ice Cream (some of the best ice cream in LA, you’re welcome in advance).
