Inspired by the outdoors, organic materials, illustrative linework, patterns, calligraphy, and fresh colors, Olive Hue provides delightful bespoke stationery to fit all occasions!



I visited this site awhile back when I posted about textures and patterns. I had originally found them through Oh Joy!...I thought they were so fabulous, I checked their site again and found an interesting bunch of patterns in photography.
The photos have such a recognizable element but when you stare at each one for a bit, they become an abstract shape...all formed by your own vision.

I go to this site to browse around and see the different films, music, and photography that this team has produced. Kelly Meador and Daniel Elwing form a duo team with tons of experience in the fine arts within their respective fields. Even though I've seen their images before, I am always inspired to look around me and see what creates an illusive and interesting pattern that I can incorporate for my designs and wedding invites.
Visit Impactist and be inspired!

Love Actually

Ever since I saw this movie, its been on the top of my movie list. It's one of my favorite holiday love story. I especially love the wedding between Kiera Knightly and her man...mostly because of the surprise his best man sets up for his Knightly...ok, so that part of the movie is a little wierd b/c she's a married woman and he's in love with her, but whatever, it makes the story.

But my favorite....most favorite from this film is the music. I love it so much, I used the Glasgow love theme as my entrance for the bridesmaids and me during the walk down the aisle. I love the song so much, I'm playing it as I'm writing this post!

H E R E is the link to the youtube montage + music.

This song is so romantic and perfect for the walk down the aisle, if you don't like the more traditional stuff.

Mr. Bean's in the movie too!!

probability of shower?

this is what I've been putting together for my dear SIL's upcoming baby shower. I can't show you all of it, but details will do for now! All the colors are muted blues, greens, and aquas....for a boy. Enjoy!

handstitched these babies closed...strathmore paper, wax paper, needles, and ice blue dmc; contents inside: reminder stickers for the guests calendars

isn't the closeup of the grosgrain on the baby rattle so beautiful?? These are either going to be used for markers of the different desserts and food that will be served or just decoration...I love ribbons!

Oh my Connie!

My dear friend just got engaged a couple weeks ago! Connie and I have been friends since our parents shipped us out to Korea for a month long excursion to find out about our roots...that was at age 11. We met at the airport and immediately took a liking to each other. After returning from Korea, I felt like I found my other half. We giggled and talked on the phone almost everyday racking up our parents phone bills to 400$ or more...then ultimately forced to be pen pals because of the ban on the phone calls from our parents!
Through all those years, Connie joined the air force, I was in LA, Connie moved everywhere, I was in LA...haha, get the picture? Although we couldn't see each other as often as we wanted, whenever we did see each other, it was as if we saw each other everyday. She was always the steadfast friend, never ever turning away from me and always reaching out, as a great friend should.
So, when she told me she was engaged, I WAS ESTATIC! I loved my wedding and wished I could do everything all over again! Instead, I get to help with Connie's wedding and be honored to be her bridesmaid!
There's nothing I wouldn't do for this girl and LOVE her to death! I cherish all my girlfriends!

so happi so happi!

Recently, I've been working with a wonderfully creative and talented event planner, designer, and coordinator, Nancy Park. She's a fresh new vendor and has so much energy when it comes to creating a beautiful event! Her wedding was UH-MAZING! I've known Nancy for many years now and know that she is a true perfectionist with almost everything!

She asked me for some help with her logo design so I was happy to sit with her and discuss her needs. So Happi Together started off as a wedding blog for her own wedding, but blossomed into an event planning business, so she wanted to have something that reflected her and the "blossoming" effect. We started off with the type and then planned around it. Because it was going to be elegant yet soft and sweet, I played around with different layouts and here's what I got:

I think we achieved "the look"...don't you?
