Creative Vision Design & Photography:

Hi my name is Seanny and I'm the designer & photographer at Creative Vision, a design & photography boutique located in Orange County. Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to get to know me. I graduated from Woodbury University with a degree in Graphic Design and have worked in the Music/Entertainment Industry and Publishing world since 1999. But because I'm a true romantic, my passion was weddings, whether it was designing for them or photographing them.

Design can play an important role in a wedding. It sets the tone of the wedding beginning with the save the dates, to the to the invitations, all the way to the little personalized tag on the favors. Your wedding is all about you, the bride and the groom, and I can design everything to fit your personality and taste. I believe that every little detail is important, and it can make your guest feel how special your day is to you.

My love of photography began a few years ago when I fell in love with the photojournalism used to capture the event. Having been a bride myself, I know how important photography is to the bride and groom. My goal as a photographer is to capture all of the little moments, emotions and details, and to tell the story of the day through photography. I photograph a wedding, the way I would like my own wedding photographed.

    Bubble Birthday Party – Aidan turns 2!

    Thursday, October 11th, 2012

    Oh my goodness, I can’t believe another year has flown right by. When they say it kids grow up fast, they weren’t kidding! My little baby boy….not so much a baby anymore has just turned 2 on September 26th and we had a fun Bubble Bash for him.

    I was toying around with some different birthday themes. I wanted to do something that I knew Aidan would like and was age appropriate for him but yet fun for everyone at the party of all ages. So I came up with bubbles! Simple and fun. I decided incorporate all aspects of bubbles….the bubbles we play with, bubble baths, and the popping of bubbles. I picked a color scheme and the rest fell into place. Check out all the fun details from the party.

    Here are the invites. Even though bubbles are clear I still wanted lots of color, so I designed the invite with colored bubbles. You can order these invitations at: www.invitationparlour.com for matching favor tags, signs, etc, contact us at info@invitationparlour.com

    For the dessert table we had a variety of treats that was associated with the word POP. Such as our Popcorn bar, Cake Pops, Tootsie Pops, and Rice Krispies Treats, because they go “Snap, Krackle and Pop” Of course we also had cupcakes and birthday cake, which I got at It’s A Piece A Cake Bakery. They have the best Black Forest Chocolate Cake. I had the baker make the cake in a aqua blue frosting and I added the rubber duck and glass balls I found at Michaels to make it look like bubbles. For the background I cut out various size circles and made the birthday sign with my Silhouette. I also hung a bunch of clear balloons on the ceiling too look like bubbles.

    For the favors, I had bubble bath, bubbles, and rubber ducks all packaged into a cute little popcorn box.

     

    Some of the other fun food items that were associated with pop was our popcorn chicken and soda pop. I also made a blue punch that looked like a bath with rubber ducks floating in it. The recipe for the punch is at tidymom.net

    So of course for the kid’s activity I had bubbles. We bought a bunch of different bubble wands, and I had a bubble refill station, bubble guns and even a football that creates bubble when thrown. I also had a bunch of inflatable balls in the yard for the kids to throw around.

     

    Aidan loves to dance, so we had the kid pop music station on.

    Here’s Aidan with his cousin Kyan.

    TWO!

    Sesame Street Party {Jackson’s 1st Birthday}

    Thursday, May 17th, 2012

    Saturday, April 14th, we celebrated Jackson’s First Birthday. Lisa and I have been planning this little soiree for quite sometime and finally it was all put together. You’ve probably seen Lisa’s picture quite a few times on the blog, just because I’ve designed everything for her wedding, her birth announcements and now her son’s first birthday party. It’s been quite an honor being a part of this wonderful family’s life. And the best part is that I’ve gained a new friend in Lisa, who loves parties as much as I do :)

    So on with the details from the party….

    First off, the invitations. We did a bi-folded 5×7 wide folded invitation, that had pictures of Jackson from throughout the year. I think it’s always fun to incorporate the pictures from the year, just because babies change so much from the day they are born till they turn one.

    To order this Sesame Street invitation, or any other custom inviations, contact us at info@invitationparlour.com or call us at 951-241-0417

    Dessert Table. We designed the pennant banner & signs and labels to match the invite, for the various delicious dessert Lisa had. Colette’s Events, designed the cake, chocolate elmo pops & cake pops….it was soooo cute, and delish!!

    Lisa ordered a bunch of cute favors from etsy, including the sesame street frames, Elmo & Cookie monster pails, and the Zoe ponytail headbands. She also got the cute “Jackson” street sign there too.

    Both Elmo & Cookie Monster came to the party to join in the fun.

    Aww, look at that cute little smile.

    Jackson really likes birthday cake :) mmmmm yum, yum, yum!!

    Here is Jackson with his dad Nick, who, one is very handy, he made the second “Jackson Street” sign & two, makes the yummiest hamburger sliders!

    And here is big sister Addy hanging out with Elmo

    Here is Jackson with his mama, Lisa!

    And here is my son, Aidan, who was one of the guests, dancing to the music :)

    Sprinkle Party {Baby Shower}

    Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

    Last Saturday I co-hosted a Sprinkle party for my best friend Kim. This will be Kim’s second baby and after I did some researching to get inspiration for the party, I found out that the second shower is called a Sprinkle…not a full on Shower, just a little Sprinkle to show that we care :) So after I found this out, the ideas came pouring into my head and I told my friend I would handle the dessert table and decor for the party. I decided I wanted a party that was different from the first shower I threw her. That party was definitely more baby, with diaper cakes and games and baby shower decor. I wanted this one to be more modern and a party for the girls to mingle and chit chat while eating high calorie foods :)

    I’ve known Kim since College, we are both designers and both love photography, design, weddings and a good party. Kimmy is also the one that always bombards me with all these fun blogs to read about, such as www.hostessblog.com and Kara’s Party Ideas and introduced me into the world of Amy Atlas and the candy and dessert buffets. So for sure I knew I wanted a dessert table. And once I was inspired by a “Sprinkle Party” I knew that all the desserts was going to have to have Sprinkles on top and I was going to have as much sprinkles as I could possibly have at a party.

    Of course everything starts with the invitations and here it is.

    I wanted it to be simple and modern and I used the colors that I knew were Kim’s favorites at this time. They were printed on both sides with the stripes continuing onto the back of it. And for an extra touch, I decided to add little punched out sprinkles in matching colors, into the envelopes, so that the recipient would get some sprinkles in the mail with their invite.

    Onto the dessert table. I wanted the background to match the invitations, so I punched out circles in different sizes and in the colors that matched the invite to create the Sprinkle Effect. I had vanilla cupcakes with lemonade frosting with sprinkles, sugar cookies with sprinkles, donuts with sprinkles and a ice cream buffet where you could sprinkle on your toppings…told you this party was high in calories! For drinks we had sparkling lemonades in champagne glasses that was rimmed with yellow sprinkles. And for the favors I found cute salt shakers at beau-coup.com and filled it with lemon heads. I can’t take credit for the flower arrangements, I enlisted the help from my mom for that…she was a life saver, since I don’t do flowers. I can buy all the stuff, but that’s as far as I can go, luckily she was here to help me make them look extra cute.

    It turned out to be a great party. I couldn’t do it without the help of my co-host Sandra I., who handled the rest of the food that didn’t have sugar in it :) Thank you for also letting us invade your home and letting me rearrange your backyard. And thank you Sandra T. and Karina for helping me set up and for making that cute sign, because for some reason I still don’t own a Cricut. Congratulations Kimmy…we can’t wait to meet the new little guy soon!!! xoxo, Seanny :)

    Pui and Geoff – Engagement Party

    Friday, May 7th, 2010

    On April 17th, Charlie and I headed up to L.A. to join Pui and Geoff at their engagement party. It was lots of fun, with fun people and yummy foods, including 4 cakes….that’s my kind of party!! They even played a cute little game where they take off their shoes and each of them holds one of each shoe. The shoe represents that person and when they are asked questions such as “who is the better cook?” or “who said ‘I love you’ first?”  they have to hold up the shoe that represents that person. It was hilarious and a great game to play at the party. Check out some of the pics…..

    Pui and Geoff, you two make a awesome couple, congrats!!
