Julie&Thomas: Invitations

We are SO proud of this piece and are so excited to share the process with you.  Julie and Thomas came to us with a rough idea about what they wanted and didn’t want.  After leaving our first meeting with a Surfer magazine and ideas swarming, Jeff Neckers–our lead, and only, designer and artistic director on this piece–and I brainstormed all the fun possibilities.  I think it is fun to show you the creative process,…

Drink Quantities

I have people ask me all the time about how to estimate drink quantities.  My first response is usually 2 drinks per person, per hour, which might seem high for most people.  But lets face it, I could drink 2 glasses of wine in 1 hour.  I’d always rather have more than less.  I just found a cool document for those of you trying to plan out beverage quantities for a party.  Thanks BEVMO!!

Community Options Fundraiser

A few weeks back a few of us from the Wylie team got asked by a former MOB (Mother of the Bride) to help out with a fundraiser she was coordinating for Community Options.  This organization provides housing, support services and advocacy assistance to help empower people with disabilities.  Lynette is a dear friend and so talented, gracious and wonderful.  We got to coordinate, design and capture her daughters wedding last May (maybe we should…

Day of Love

I think I speak for all of the Wylie team when I say that we all love to help others–whether it’s serving our local community or bringing about peace in countries abroad.  Doing weddings is something we LOVE but we want to do more at the same time.  Now I will speak for myself, Katie, in saying that sometimes I wonder what in the world I am doing with weddings and how that connects with…

Dessert Buffet Pictures

It would be really hard to convince me that Amy Billings could get more talented than she already is. And I have proof. A few weeks ago we had the privileged of doing desserts for Meredith and Andy’s wedding in Sonoma. Amy and Cole blew us all away with the most beautiful cakes on earth. Here’s the kicker–they tasted SO GOOD!!! A few of our favorite wedding guests we encountered at the dessert table: One…

Do you yelp your wedding vendors?

WE DO!  I just wrote a little yelp review for one of the caterers we worked with last weekend at a wedding.  We loved working with them and wanted the world to know!! (www.elainebellcatering.com). As vendors ourselves, we LOVE when we get good reviews WITHOUT EVEN ASKING FOR IT!!!  That is a serious compliment right there– Check out the latest review of our DJ Morgan here!! Shameless Request:  Have you worked with us before?  YELP…

Seriously, I love my job.

Dessert Inspiration

Some days it takes everything in me to not share all the cool projects we are working on for clients weddings. I can’t wait to share inspiration side by side with the real deal! This weekend starts our first wedding of the season and our team CAN’T WAIT!! Not only do we get to go on a field trip to Sonoma, we get to be a part of making Meredith & Andy’s visions become a…

Robotic Rock

In what might be the highlight of his career, Morgan was mixing it up at the Silcon Valley First Robotics Competition (only in silicon valley).  It would only be appropriate for him to play “Robotic Rock” by Daft Punk during one of the competitions.  Here’s a small video of the competition.  I (katie) include this for you only because I think it is SO weird that this kind of stuff exists AND that it draws…

When Designers Strike: Brian & Kristin Part 1

It’s a little bit selfish to do a post on a wedding that Brian (one of our graphic designers) did for HIMSELF, but we just can’t help it.  Brian and Kristin’s wedding was amazing–but that is besides the point.  From the day their guests received their invitation to the HOUR they spend on their website sifting through their magazine to the actual wedding day–COHESIVENESS and STYLE were present.  In a big way. Take a gander:…
