Handmade custom invitations & stationery

The world is abuzz.  Well execpt for those in Ravello, according to Marcy Blum. With the Royal Wedding fever to reach its pinnacle in about two hours time according to my eastern clock, the suspense is barely tolerable.  So what does this artist, invitation designer and all around wedding junkie do…blog!  Welcome to the very late night, super-royal special edition of RiceInk.  Never before have I scheduled a post at such a late hour but today’s historical events call for nothing less out of the ordinary!! So today I have a opulent, over the top table scape designed by one […]

Yesterday I shared a look at Tara and Kristopher’s tropical affair.  Today I have more including the massive stationery collection designed for them!  Tara is a stationery junkie to say the least.  We spent hours thumbing through papers and experimenting with painting techniques.  Tara’s design even inspired this look seen in Inside Weddings, a favorite hand picked by the editor from our current project gallery at the time!  Tara’s paper story began with painted bamboo save the dates embellished with a sketch of her Chinese character tattoo meaning “mysterious”. Gold stocks,  a palm leaf pattern from Envelopments and a punchy […]

I’ve been dying to share this real wedding with you! Tara and our team worked together for nearly a year to create stationery of all kinds from save the dates to getaway signs!! More on that soon, I promise, but first I wanted to start with these killer bridal portraits by Daniel Lanton.  Tara is a stunning girl and made a breathtaking bride.  Orchids and bamboo were integral to the look and this exotic sensibility could be seen in all facets from favors to fresh florals. Love this edgy little detail…Tara brought in an artist to embellish her tattoo day […]

Today I have a bright and colorful wedding invitation to share for Gayaneh and Erik’s wedding in July.  She wanted bold florals but with a distinctly unique twist.  We chose the aloe bloom in fantasy shades of fuchsia and orange.  Painted in detail with sheer shimmer accents the blooms were full of sheen and life! Gayaneh also asked me to create a creative Armenian monogram representing their first initials.  How fun!  A sweet Portable Pocket from Envelopments was the finishing detail  all tied up with natural raffia. Thanks so much Gayaneh for the opportunity to collaborate on this project! So […]

Amy’s plans are progressing as the wedding is only 3 months away!  I have the distinct feeling that once her wedding shower has come and gone July 30th will be here in a blink.  After a weekend in Maryland wrapping up decor details with Amy, we have now moved onto flowers.  Yes, you guessed it, not only am I the stationer for My Best Friend’s Wedding, I am also planner, floral designer and all around awesome Matron of Honor (wink, wink).   With a lot of help from friends and family, it was important for Amy to have a wedding […]
