Robin + Michael

lavender wedding ideas

Nothing makes my day like receiving a beautiful wedding in my inbox, so when Robin and Michael’s wedding came in last week from Corbin Gurkin I couldn’t wait to post their entire celebration on the blog. Robin is an art director at Sephora, so her endless creativity plus a gorgeous setting really made for an incredible wedding. More from the lovely bride…

Because so many guests were coming from out of town it was important for us to find a venue that could accommodate all our guests for a weekend and have a vacation type feel. We also wanted to showcase an area of California that a lot people don’t get to see when they visit. The redwoods, the rugged coastline, nature. It was also important for us to use as much local resources as possible. I designed the invitation from a collage of various nature elements. It was important that nothing was wasted. I found a printer that makes plantable 100% recyclable handmade paper with wildflower seeds to be planted. They were great to work with and very affordable.

So much more coming up in a bit!


Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
