I am so excited about today on Once Wed. Not only is it Friday(yay!), but my first column is now up on Design Sponge. I was so excited to partner up with Gloria Wong Design and Jen Curtis on this inspiration shoot in San Francisco. Gloria is an incredible event designer and brought together an amazing team of vendors including Good on Paper, Nancy Liu Chin, and Mira Aster to create this wonderful table inspired by Spirograph’s. To see the rest of this gorgeous table and more photos from Jen Curtis, click here


A version of this spirograph-inspired tablescape will also be featured at The Wedding University on January 31, 2010 at the Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley. The Wedding University is an afternoon of elegance, education, and inspiration for engaged couples, providing personalized classes, taught by experienced wedding professionals in an atmosphere of welcome, relaxation and fun. For more information, please visit the Wedding 360.

The circular quality of the spirograph channels the symbolism of marriage. The union of two whole people that forever orbit around the other.

Wow! This is whimsical and profound. Like it.
