Jayme’s bohemian wedding
On a slightly foggy Northern California day in the rolling, rural hills near Bodega Bay, one of my best friends got married. Jayme is one of my first friends from when I moved to San Francisco seven years ago. We are both from Indiana, but did not know each other until we met in SF. At the beginning, we spent late nights out dancing to A LOT of music. The first two years in SF, I listened to a lot of bluegrass, folk, and jam bands in intimate bars, in historic venues, and in Golden Gate Park. It kind of doesnt get any better.
For Jayme, I thought it would be sweet and fun to make her wedding invites. Jayme and Jeremy are both musicians and lately, they have been hosting some great music nights at their San Francisco house. Watching them play music together is truly beautiful, because they write their songs together – harmonizing through singin’ and strummin’. I asked Jayme for her favorite flowers – calla lily and lavender – and their favorite song – a Led Zeppelin lyric. Using this as inspiration, I made her invites with watercolor and then scanned it into the computer for printing.
They got married on a beautiful deck that was draped in passion flower – perfect for flower crowns. Using flowers and the vines, I made one for each bridesmaid and the flower girl. I also snagged a few bouquets of left over flowers from the reception, eventually using the pedals for mandalas which were incorporated into the “Thank You’s.” One of my dear friends, Laurie Wilson, photographed Jayme’s special day. She completely captured the mood of the day – bohemian, hippy, free spirited friends hanging out and celebrating marriage! Check out her site, she is a fantastic photographer with a growing portfolio. The wedding day photos here on this post are from her hard work! Thank you Jayme for having me be such a special part of your special day.
