maya + dave = love & awesomeness!

ahhh maya & dave, i have been waiting to write this post forever! now yes, i love my couples…but there are no words to even express how much i adore maya & dave! through our many meetings, phone conversations, and crazy late night texts, the more it was clear that they were something more…almost like discovering your soulmate & long lost friends at the same time. i just feel so extremely honored and overjoyed that i was able to help them plan a day as beautiful and amazing as them!

see when maya and i met to first chat about her wedding, one of first things i asked her was, “what’s up with the 408 area code?” and come to find out, maya and i are both from san jose! we both squealed with delight and immediately started chatting about what neighborhoods we grew up in, what high school and college we went to, what brought us to southern ca, and more! as the meeting progress, we discovered that we shared more than our hometown and age in common! maya & her love of bold colors & design…her love for hot wings…her love for forever 21 and target…her crazy detailed lists, sketches, and inspiration photos…even her & dave’s relationship dynamic is similar to james and i, she is the crazy talkative one, and he is the chill mellow one. she is basically a “much funnier, way cooler, definitely prettier” version of me! and dave? he is just super cool and laid-back, how can you not love him! their friends & family? yes, couldn’t get enough of them! i just felt right at home with everyone, they are such an amazing, fun group of people. i think i hugged every person as they left for the night!

so what about the wedding style? in initial meetings i always ask my couples about their home decor style, so when maya mentioned bright & bold colors, awesome flea market finds, and their love of books and vintage cameras…i knew their wedding design would take on this same comfortable, fun, eclectic tone! not to mention, maya already has a stylishly hip vibe, and was full of so many fabulous ideas to personalize their day. in the end, the feel of their wedding really matched their style & personalities: fun, stylish, laughter, laid back, comfort, fun…oh and did i say fun?! i don’t think i ever seen a wedding rock the dance floor like they did. eric with so-cal dj spun the hits all night long, even surprising everyone by throwing in some bay area hip-hop for all the san jose peeps, loved it! (especially their friend’s break dancing battles!)

so very excited and honored that jen from green wedding shoes featured their wedding yesterday! do you know how much i adore green wedding shoes?! my happiness is pretty over the moon right now! so head over and check out the feature for more images, bridal tips and advice from maya, as well as lots of details about the design from myself and my girl erin with dandelion and grey!
