Telling Your Story With Jewelry

 

 

We just wanted you to know about a new and exciting gift idea from our friend Kim Waddell.

 

Origami Owl jewelry is completely customizable and as unique as the woman who wears it.  The signature jewelry line, Living Lockets, are the latest trend in jewelry; but the truth is, they’re so much more than that!  Living Lockets are an extension of YOU ~ as each and every piece is custom designed to tell a story of your life & what is important to you!  Each beautifully crafted locket is made of high quality materials, a hinge and a magnetic closure to make it easy to adapt your lockets as the story of your life unfolds.

 

 

Exclusive Designs

 

All Origami Owl products are created exclusively for Origami Owl by our creative team, offering our Customers options that they won’t find anywhere else!  Look for the O2 or Origami Owl mark, which signifies that it is a genuine Origami Owl original.

 

Exceptional Price Point

Everyone’s story is priceless and deserves to be told. Even the price savvy will find that they can create a beautiful piece of jewelry based on their specific budget!

 

Designer Quality

Each piece of Origami Owl jewelry has been lovingly created to meet our specific standards.

Origami Owl jewelry is exceptionally fashioned using high quality materials. Our products meet and exceed all Federal and State standards.

 

O2 Charms

Our enamel charms are hand painted by highly skilled artisans. That’s pretty impressive when you consider that each charm is less than 1/4” in diameter!

 

O2 Living Locket

Our Living Lockets are crafted using high-quality metals, including 14K Gold, 14K Rose Gold and solid 316 grade Stainless Steel – a metal that is similar in appearance to silver, but is harder, hypoallergenic and will not tarnish – making it an excellent choice for jewelry! Our Gold and Rose Gold Living Lockets are plated using Ion Plating, which is the same process used by high end watch makers.

 

O2 Dangles

Our dangles are designed by our internal creative team and hand crafted in the USA using high quality materials.

 

O2 Chains

Our 18K Gold and 18K Rose Gold chains are plated using an Ion Plating (IP) process over a pure copper base.  The IP process is one of the most advanced surface finishing processes in the jewelry trade and ensures a more durable and wear resistant finish when compared with other plating methods. Our Silver chains are plated with 925 Sterling Silver, using an electro plating process over a pure copper base. Our chains are plated at many times the industry standard to ensure wearability and durability.

 

O2 Plates

Our artisan crafted plates are proudly stamped by hand in the USA!

 

Packaging

Origami Owl jewelry comes packaged inside of whimsical fortune cookie jewelry pouches that are lovingly made from the up-cycled fabric pieces from real Japanese kimonos! Each fortune cookie is as unique as the creation it holds and the woman who wears it. Fortune cookies also come nestled in fun “Take Out” boxes that are perfect for gift giving.

 

Build your Living Locket in 5 steps:

Step 1: Select the CHARMS that tell your story or represent things you love

Step 2: Choose a LOCKET

Step 3: Choose a CHAIN

Step 4: Add a hand – stamped metal PLATE

Step 5: Add a DANGLE or TWO!!

Every locket tells a STORY… what’s yours?

Catherine Fiehn Photography: Sarah and Jerry’s Wedding

Sarah and Jerry’s wedding day was a chilly one, but the location for the outdoor Ceremony and indoor Reception at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills, had picture perfect Autumn colors.  No one seemed to mind the cold, especially the beautiful Bridesmaids and the guests who enjoyed a unique Spiral Seating Ceremony Set-up.

 

ATMOSPHERE PRODUCTIONS provided microphones and sound for outdoor Ceremony music.  The guests moved indoors for Cocktail Hour and Dinner with our Custom Photo-Booth option. Sarah and Jerry selected a Custom Love Story Introduction and danced the night away with some carefully selected favorites.

Kasey Matson Photography

 

DJ Network Members Atmosphere Productions recently worked with Kasey Matson Photography for Ashley and Frank’s wedding day in town of Brooklyn, Connecticut and the Golden Lamb Buttery, overlooking the rolling hills and fields of this beautiful area of New England.

The planned outdoor Ceremony had to be relocated indoors because of the torrential rain.  Undaunted,  and still with a huge smile, Ashley seemed unfazed…. It was going to be her DAY – no matter what!

Atmosphere Productions provided microphones and sound for Ceremony music officiated by Andrea Burr. The guests remained indoors for Cocktail Hour and Dinner with the uniquely decorated barn-style dining area.

Ashley and Frank’s prime concern was getting everyone dancing.  We did just that!  Once the rain let up, guests could be seen dancing the night away outside, under the stars, to some carefully selected favorites Ashley and Frank.

Ashley and Frank’s Recessional Ceremony Song:
Colbie Caillat – I do

Ashley and Frank’s First Dance:
Jack Johnson – Better Together

Bride and Bride’s Father Dance:
Tim McGraw – My Little Girl

Groom and Groom’s Mother Dance:
T. Carter – A Mothers Song

Cake Cutting Song:
Luke Bryan – I Don’t Want This Night To End

Special thanks for all the photography Courtesy of Kasey Matson Photography

Your Wedding Day Timeline

 

 

You’ve decided on a wedding day.  You’ve picked out the church.  You’ve got your photographer.  What time should the ceremony start? What about the reception start time?  How much time do you need for photos?

 

Planning your wedding day time-line can be difficult.  Let’s break it down and see how much time you should plan for each section of your wedding day.

 

Your Ceremony:

Typically you can expect a Justice of the Peace civil ceremony to last 30 minutes maximum.  If you are planning a full mass service – you should plan a full hour to the ceremony.  If you are doing a receiving line after the ceremony – plan on about 20 minutes for every 100 guests. (If you have 200 guests, your receiving line will take 40 minutes!).  If it’s hot out, you do not want to keep your guests in the heat – let them get to the air conditioned reception site.  Exposing your guests to extreme heat for prolonged periods of time drains their energy – and they will not be as responsive later on for dancing.

 

The Photographs:

If you are not doing photographs prior to the ceremony, you need to dedicate time to get a good formal photograph session.  Typically you should plan 30 – 45 minutes for formal photos.  (this does not include travel time to and from photo session location)  The more family and bridal party, the longer photos will take.

 

Travel:

Obviously it takes time for your guests and the bridal party to get from point A to point B.  Take into consideration any special traffic situations on your wedding day (is it near a major concert, sporting event, is it a friday night, etc?).  If so, traffic may be an issue and you should either plan on circumventing this area in your travels or plan on travel taking longer than normal.

 

The Reception:

Most people start their reception with an hour social hour.  If you expect to be long taking photos, you might want to extend the cocktail time to an hour and a half.  Typically, at the end of cocktail hour, we do formal introductions and first dance, blessing and toast.  If you are having social hour in a separate room, plan on 10 minutes to 15 minutes transition time for your guests (longer if stairs or an elevator is involved).  It will take about 30 minutes to organize introductions, introduce everyone, first dance, bridal party dance and blessing/toast.  If you are having more than 1 toast, ensure that each person knows that their toast should be brief (2-5 minutes).  If someone gets up and does a 20 minute toast – that is 20 minutes that you will not have later on in your reception for dancing.  Time is of utmost concern at a wedding – make sure you curtail both blessing and toast to an appropriate timeframe.  We’ve seen clergy give 20 minute blessings and best men eat up 30-40 minutes for their toast.

 

Dinner:

From start to finish, your meal service should be between 45 minutes and 75 minutes maximum.  There are many facilities that drag out or are slow on meal service.  If so, you should consider dancing between courses to allow for maximum dancing time and to mask the slow meal service from your guests.

 

Dancing:

At a typical 5 hour reception – you should expect 2 – 2 1/2 hours of dancing.  Everything that takes longer above, eats into this dancing time.  If your concern is to have all your guests up and dancing, then you need to keep everything else in check to allow for this.

 

In Summary:

———————————————

Ceremony – 30 – 60 minutes

Receiving Line – 0 – 60 minutes

Travel Time (between ceremony and reception site) – 0 – 45 minutes

Cocktails – 60 – 90 minutes

Introductions/Speeches/Formal Dances – 30 minutes

Dinner – 45 – 75 minutes

Dancing – ?
