Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Dorian and Eloise of Central Park Flowers in Olyphant, PA consistently wow me with their artistry.  If I am planning a shoot in PA they are one of the first calls I make.  It is entirely refreshing to work with a fellow artists who just gets you.  A few simple words like “edgy, moody, pops of color” plus a simple sketch are all Dorian and Eloise needed to start creating.  My recent obsession with Scabiosa guided much of the floral and stationery directions as I love the textural yet graceful nature of the bloom. I am sure you have noticed […]

You may remember my entry for the Inspired Creations competition that I shared last month.  Ami from Elizabeth Anne Designs and Cyd from The Sweetest Occasion visioned the contest as a way to draw out some creative love from talent throughout the wedding industry and boy did they ever….The winners were recently announced and although my team didn’t make the cut I am honored just the same to have been part and challenged to create my Alchemy at the Barn tablescape. So this week I will be diving deeper into the experience of visioning this shoot from concept to stationery […]

What I love most about this industry are the people and dynamic nature of the business….we create new, beautiful and meaningful everyday (or at least strive to) and for this I feel grateful to even be a part.  Over the next week I will share my view of the life changing time I experienced at Engage 10 in Grand Cayman; from the striking style and paper goodness to the innovative people and ideas all captured through my eyes and pen. With inspiring paper from Envelopments we created the main session stationery including these oversized placecards.  Jasmine Star grabbed this gorgeous […]

Lindsey, our photographer in Utah suggested we have a day after shoot in the park.  Some quiet time, just Adam and I and the beautiful Zion scenery, seemed like the perfect way to wrap up our renewal celebration.   Lindsey is even bringing along some actual film!  From what I hear good, old-fashioned film is the way to photograph outdoor events…but I digress. I spent the day Saturday wrapping up last minute details for our trip and shopping a bit for Mom’s Mother’s Day gift.  One of my absolute favorite local boutique’s is Lavish in Scranton, PA.  Their eclectic bath and […]

After a rainy weekend and dreary few days to follow, the sun is finally shining here in Northeast PA!  How appropriate since today I am sharing my very sunny collaboration with Good Life Events and Llanes Photography!  Recently Melissa from The Loveliest Day featured this concept shoot on her very lovely blog! Ready for a vacation right?  I know I am!  The caspian napkins and those jade green vases let you know immediately you are in store for a color experience.  Oh and those peach carnations were the perfect choice to allow the other colors to really sing! I love […]
