our wedding: bridal party gifts

Our bridal party gifts were beyond fun to coordinate.  We wanted to give them something that they could wear on the wedding day, but also personalize the items to make them a bit special.  For the guys, we got them matching striped socks and a monogrammed skinny tie.

The skinny ties were brought to Jaron Logo in SF for their monograms...

might be the only shot of Chris with his monogram visible: 

And for the ladies I wanted to do a custom piece of jewelry and some type of custom stationary.  One of my favorite jewelry makers in the land is miss padgett hoke, so I knew I had to contact her.  I told her what I wanted and she whipped up these beauties: 

 I loved the way they turned out.

For the girls with asymmetrical dresses, I had bracelets made instead: 

I might need to have Padgett make one for me...

and then I had make all the girls personalized journals, incorporating our invites (this is a horrible iphone shot I took when they came in the mail~ but you get the idea).  I had one of these made for myself and use it daily. 

again, we had such a fun time pulling all these gifts together for the best bridal party in the world.  

seriously, we couldn't have had a better group of people by our side.
