February 2009 archive

Hitched: one year ago.


It’s our anniversary this Sunday, March 1st. I can’t believe an entire year has gone by since the big day. In honor of it, I thought I’d showcase some of the amazing vendors I was lucky enough to work with last year.

Rafanelli Events was our event designer and wedding planner. Kim was the most amazing planner to work with. Billy, the creative director, is filled with nothing but unique and original ideas to inspire. The chuppah was composed of four white columns with Cole’s grandfather’s talit “floating” over our heads. The aisle was flanked by hurricanes filled with water and floating candles. Two planters of wheat grass were at our feet.
The florals were designed by Jose Graterol. We tried to incorporate unique and exotic plants & flowers. The maids of honor carried lime green roses. Giant orchids sat on many of the tables, which we were able to take home after. I wish I could name the types of flowers that we used for the mostly low centerpieces, but my botanical knowledge is limited. Texture and shape were very important. We combined rounds and square tables, round and square vases, and used rocks to sit atop the menu cards and to line the vases.
Photography was by the fabulous Steve Momot. It was almost as if he wasn’t there when the event began. Our ketubah was designed by our dear friend and talented artist Tomer Avivi. The chocolates were made by the one and only Ali Kantor, future cakery designer. The cake, which was also the wedding favor, was baked by the Four Seasons pastry team in Palm Beach. The program was designed by p&c;. Invitation photos coming soon…
Still cannot believe a year has gone by!

Happy February Birthdays

It’s been quite awhile since my last entry. Things have been amazing at Papery & Cakery. I’ve had the opportunity to use my graphic design skills and work on some incredible birthday invitations. I thought I’d do a birthday post to show some of the custom work that is available at Papery!

The birthday balloon custom design for Congregation B’nai Israel’s 25th Birthday Bash Auction features bright and bold pastels and primaries to wish CBI the ultimate happy birthday. This invite was a particular labor of love. I hope that the event itself is just as exciting and happy as this invitation is!
Isabella’s 4th birthday invite was another custom design. It featured a Cinderella lavish pumpkin carriage and came attached to a proclamation from the Queen Mum. Ellen’s 50th invite features red lips and an unmistakable kiss. The party is given with love by the fabulous Melanie!
My own birthday was last week. The picture is of a lunch celebration with my cousin Hallie & grandma at Seredipity 3. Who doesn’t love frozen hot chocolate?!
Happy February Birthdays! Enjoy all of P&C;’s custom designs!
xoxo,
Niki
