We met many talented vendors at the FLAX DIY wedding fair last weekend, and were especially taken with the work of Lover Bee Botany. Owner Brie styles floral and botanical displays for weddings, parties, photo shoots, restaurants and more.
For this installment of our Local Love series we headed to Valencia street and visited one of our favorite new stores, Little Paper Planes + Owl Cave books. Little Paper Planes opened earlier this year in May and it’s such a great addition to the bustling Mission neighborhood.
Little Paper Planes is owned and operated by Kelly Lynn Jones, who ran LPP as an online shop for years before launching this brick and mortar version of her store. Kelly is joined by Viniita Moran who brought her online bookstore Owl Cave Books into the shop. Owl Cave Books has a wonderfully curated selection of hard to find art books and magazines.
One of our favorite things about the shop is the space, which was transformed with fixtures and hand built pieces created by Kate Pruitt.
The shop also has a print gallery which features a new artist every month and a residency program which can be found in the back of the store. The residency program offers space to artists, makers and curators.
If you’re visiting the bay area or if you’re a local who hasn’t been to LPP + Owl Cave Books yet definitely make a trip there. They have such a great selection of goods and they’re so well curated and displayed, you’ll definitely leave feeling inspired and hopefully with something fun you didn’t have before.

We were recently lucky enough to make a special trip to the San Francisco Flower Mart to drop off some wedding invitations to a wedding planner we work with. We love going to the Flower Mart and could spend all day in there!
The Flower Mart is where wedding vendors and other professionals can get locally grown flowers direct from growers at wholesale prices. It’s always such a treat walking through the Mart and we thought it would be fun to show you some behind the scenes photos, including prep for the wedding we did the invites for. Enjoy!
We will never tire of looking at San Francisco weddings. As much as we love a big beautiful celebration we have a soft spot for a simple, low key union. You can’t bet the drama of San Francisco’s City Hall, with its high sweeping ceilings and gorgeous architecture.
Lilia Photography took these beautiful photos of Misty and Matt’s sweet San Francisco wedding at City Hall. We’re digging Misty’s vintage wedding dress and love that all the gentleman wore vintage style suits with brooches instead of boutinnieres, pocket squares and vintage tie-pins. Misty’s bouquet was made from flower brooches and put together by her father, which is so special.
When ever we see photos of weddings we naturally think of which of our wedding designs would match the celebration. We can’t help it! For Misty and Matt’s charming vintage ceremony we would chose our vintage inspired Sweetheart wedding suite in letterpress to match the drama and beauty of their big day.
Congratulations Misty and Matt! And thanks for letting us share your beautiful photos here Lilia!
This weekend we made a trek out to the Outer Sunset in San Francisco and visited one of our favorite shops, General Store.
General Store has a wonderful collection of locally sourced and well designed goods for sale. We love the feel of the shop and the carefully selected items.
How amazing is this wall of cards? We love the simplicity of the wood and rope. Such a great design, there’s something about the General Store that makes us feel like we’re on a ship, which is pretty fitting given how close it is to the ocean.
Fat bags of local beans.
Terrariums and tea towels.
If you visit the bay area definitely make a trek out to General Store, it’s worth the trip! And while you’re out there stop next door and grab some cinnamon toast and something hot to drink at Trouble Coffee.

Last week Refinery29 came by our new studio and took some photos of Eunice and Sabrina for a feature on San Francisco siblings. They were thrilled to be included along side some of the city’s coolest siblings. The piece includes a pretty fun q&a with Eunice and Sabrina about each other — including Eunice’s favorite memory of the two of them growing up. You can check out the full Refinery29 feature right here.
