One of the best things in my inbox this week…this sneak peek from Lindsey at Green Apple Photography. She was kind enough to send along an unedited selection of shots for us to share with guests at tomorrow’s party. Thank you Lindsey for your time, talent and artistry. Adam and I were honored to have you participate in our Renewal experience.
There is more to come…details, day after cuddle shoot and more….I can’t wait to share.
As you know the hubby and I renewed our vows in Utah just about two weeks ago (photos coming soon, I promise). It was truly magical to say the least. All the planning and travel was so worth the opportunity to carve out a piece of history for ourselves, friends and family. We only wished in some ways that all our loved one’s could have been a part. However, our small guest list in Utah meant a bigger reason to celebrate in PA! I love a reason to party! So here I am, three days before the big celebration…While the hubby finishes our super cool photobooth and Mom and Dad help clean and pack and well just about everything, I have been sneaking time after hours at the studio to design the stationery.
If you remember the original inspiration that I posted what seems like forever ago, you will notice things have changed a bit. The look is more sophisticated but still with a huge nod to all things my Nana would have loved. Pretty hankies, cross stitch details, shimmery papers, abundant flowers and color all around.
The original inspiration board as I envisioned things last July.
Remember our book invitations? I couldn’t resist using the cosmo image on the menus!
After collecting vintage sour cream glasses for the last few months we finally have enough for our guests’ favors. I cannot wait for my yellow baker’s twine to arrrive from Bake it Pretty.
I’ve been a bit obsessed with wallpaper and this bold ivory and black pattern from Graham and Brown caught my eye instantly. Open seating is our choice for the event but each table will feature a card explaining more about the venue and the festivities planned for the evening, adorned with hankies of course!
Yay, can’t wait for Saturday! Thanks for reading!
Oh! This is so much more you!
I thought it would be fun to start a new style of post here at RiceInk, so here goes! You already have a chance to see all the fun ideas my clients’ have over at the Muddy Brushes Gallery so why not take a peek into some of the other planning details these bride’s have planned?
I have been working with Tara for over a year designing first her gorgeous Contrast Painted orchid wedding invitations and now a full suite of stationery for the day-of. Her style and approach is decisive; this gal knows what she wants and her bold color palette speaks volumes to that fact!
I had a look at her Engagement session with my favorite guy, Daniel and just had to share. The dreary day for the shoot actually worked in their favor – such personality in this sky.
The guardrail, the dress, the pose…all perfect! My favorite detail in this shot?…the drops of water Daniel captured. Head over to Daniel’s blog to dive into more of the shoot…so worth the trip.
We went with a straightforward design based on the invite but we could also mix it up a bit, swap paper order etc. Thoughts?
I went with a simple painted dots in graceful curves from each corner.
The flower here is much softer!
Even though I have done this design before, it still seems new somehow!
We have done this design often but it looks brand new for you in this version!
Shimmer, shimmer!! I so enjoyed seeing this artwork in it’s full glory here!
I love the boldness of the chartreuse painted details!
I’m so excited to see the storyline work on the smaller format! I used shimmering eggplant and sage green border with a subtle gold printed layer.
The peacock here is much more subtle.
I created an entirely new illustration with hand drawn flourishes, and graceful swirls. The callas fit in subtly without taking too much attention away from the lovely pattern overall.
