For you all ladies planning on changing your name after getting married, pay attention! Maidenchange is a new service that makes it super easy to deal with all the paperwork associated with getting your name changed officially. Did you know it can take upwards of 10 hours to figure out all the instructions, the addresses, and not to mention, actually filling out the forms? Maidenchange takes away all the headache by having just one form you fill out on your computer or mobile device, and in a few days, they’ll send you all the forms already filled out, along with instructions and pre-stamped AND addressed envelopes for everywhere you need to send them! I tried it out myself last week and within a couple of days, I had a folder in my hand with everything I needed…all I had to add were a few personal details like my social and a couple of other pieces of info. Wish there was something like this when I was getting married…it would have saved me a ton of time!

If you love succulents, then you’re going to LOVE this wedding at Stable Cafe in San Francisco…its got tons of modern details, not to mention the cutest little pup in a tux!
Jean + Alex’s Intimate Urban Wedding was held at The Stable Cafe. This simple but gorgeous wedding was something they really wanted to make their own. With so many adorable DIY elements in the charming setting of the Stable Cafe, the wedding was such a great reflection of this couple’s style and personalities. Jean + Alex were so excited to serve karaage and ramen for dinner because they both LOVE Japanese food and culture so much. They even went to Japan for their honeymoon! The bride baked 3 types of cookies (peanut butter, salted chocolate chip, and cookies & cream) as part of the dessert table! She loves to bake for people, so of course it was absolutely necessary to do it for her own wedding! The couple also had DIY s’mores boxes for people after dinner, and they were able to toast the marshmallows in the fireplace.They selected all of their own music. From the beginning of the ceremony to the end of the night, and one of Alex’s best friends who loves music put together a hip hop mix for part of the dance portion of the night. Skipping the DJ and allowing friends to help, was a smart was to cut down the cost, but also to make the night more special. For the flower, they secured Ampersand as the florists! They love their shop and their style! The couple made their own vases for the floral artists to use to put a personalized spin on it. The couple immediately felt in love with Lila B’s succulent arrangements all around Stable, and her succulents was the reason that Stable was the first and only venue they visited after getting engaged. The succulent gardens all around Stable adds so much to the ambiance and charming style of the venue!
