Last I shared details about Jess’s wedding, it was all about the save the dates!  If you haven’t checked them out yet, definitely head here now… This week I asked Jess to share a bit more about her planning from her own perspective.   Jess has an incredible style and quirky personality and don’t forget Jess is also a Real Bride Blogger over at The Knotty Bride if you are hungry for more.  Instead of focusing on a particular color palette Jess is visioning more of a texture palette, see more on that below.  Enjoy!

Jessica Claire wowed everyone last year with her cutaway, sewn and letterpressed book invitations.  She lovingly hand picked books for […]

Working feverishly to overnight a few carefully crafted menus and table names to arrive in CA just in time for a Wednesday photo shoot.

I used a lovely combination of matte linen cardstock plus shimmering champagne and white.
