Should I Invite My Wedding Planner or Wedding Vendor To My Bridal Shower? // An Inside Look For Brides // Bixby + Pine

That title is a little forward, don't ya think? But truthfully, we are invited to almost every. single. one. And you can bet we count our blessings.

You see, this little business of ours is about so much more than about designing a rad wedding. It's really about the people. And we don't say that lightly. We say that because our clients are our friends, and there's really no two ways about it.

3 Tips for Planning Your Destination Wedding // Guest Blogger: Carson, A #bixbyandpinebride // Bixby + Pine

I'm Carson and I am the girls of B+P’s best friend, has-been B+P girl for those of you who remember, and real life B+P bride! I wanted to drop by and talk destination weddings with you! I recently got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and boy did I learn a thing or two. You would think a girl with my experience would have her ish together?!

Workation: Tuesday // Palm Desert, California // Styled Shoot // Bixby + Pine

Tuesday was a nice day because we got to sleep in (and thank god--a little recovery from the night before was SO needed). We started the day with hair--Alicia has been my colorist for a couple of years now and we needed to touch up my roots and we took off a few inches so that it was easier to manage (read: less blow dry time) and would hold shape better when curling it.

Workation: Monday 2.0 // Girls Night Out // Bixby + Pine

OMG. Monday night got a little...CRAZY (read: AWESOME). It was Sammy Mac's birthday, and we wanted to celebrate her and let loose, so we snagged an Uber, headed downtown, and started out night at THAI RESTAURANT NAME. (You'll later learn that we basically stayed there the whole night except as we walked up the street to get to our Uber...).

Workation: Monday // The Ruin Venue in Joshua Tree, California // Styled Shoot // Bixby + Pine

While usually Monday is the nation-wide-dreaded-day, I welcomed it with open arms! Being in California, in the desert, with some of my favorite people was the perfect way to wake up. I started my day with a trip to Trader Joe's where I instantly picked up some additional blooms that matched the shoot's color palette perfectly. I carried on through the store picking out the prettiest of fruits and vegetables as we knew that was an important element we wanted to add to the tablescape (and it paid offffff!).

WTF, It's January // Newsletter // Bixby + Pine

Sometimes January is a hard time to "start new"! There is so much pressure on "starting off right" and "setting new goals". Like, we just had Thanksgiving, then Christmas--how in the hell are we supposed to have time to, I don't know, reflect, rejuvenate, and outline new goals?

We're still learning what works for us, and because we all took a low-key break when Ashley was on maternity leave, the end of 2017 looked a bit different for us than it has in years past. We wanted to have a B+P Company Party and invite some of our favorite industry friends (you know, our real-life friends). We also decided to sit down and do PowerSheets TOGETHER. You see, we bought them last year, but never ended up touching them. And this year, we knew we wanted some intentional focus for our year--both personally and professionally.

B+P Client Christmas Gifts // Bixby + Pine

We have played with many ideas in the past for how we want to gift our clients--is it a booking gift? A pre-wedding gift? A day-of wedding gift? A post-wedding gift? An anniversary gift? A Christmas gift? A birthday gift? Oh man, the options are ENDLESS. And guys, we're the gifting type (especially Taylor), and so it will probably always be a work in progress, but this year...this year takes the cake!
