Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Aleah from Good Life Events called me one day earlier this year with a lofty idea (aren’t those the best kind?).  A marathon day of six wedding shoots was planned and she wanted me to create all the custom stationery to coordinate.  I was immediately intrigued and knew my creative muscle would be challenged since I only had 2 weeks to make it happen! The first of the six tabletop shoots was featured recently on the sweet blog, Merci New York.  Chic and thoughtful design details for weddings are this blog’s passion so Aleah and Nick‘s English Style tablescape fit […]

So here is a bit more Alice in Wonderland goodness from the Momental Girls.  I love creating a frame look of sorts, combining various artwork elements.  Here Alice herself, hearts, vines and even umbrellas all came together to create a whimsical frame of hand painted artwork.  Have I also mentioned the color palette here is perfect with a soft blue balanced by whites and bold red! Wendy’s sweet design was inspired specifically by the new Alice in Wonderland movie.  Our amazing Jessica is the artist behind this invitation and I just love what she created! As I mentioned yesterday, I […]

Remember our very well spoken romantic groom who so eloquently described a vision for his wedding day?  Gordon’s heartfelt words were featured on RiceInk months ago, just after the invitation design for his and Monika’s stylish, Swedish wedding was complete.  Here are those inspiring words again: “We want to express to you the feeling of a late summer’s afternoon with golden sunlight trickling through the trees. Baskets of apples and pears. Relaxed smiles after happy vacations. Boisterous conversation and laughter over glasses of champagne and bottles of beer. Creamy cake with berries. Kind of a garden party/barbeque equals good wedding […]

With all the Holiday madness and wrapping up last minute 2009 orders the renewal planning took a back seat.  I am sure most brides can relate to this as January 1st comes and goes you inevitably have the “oh, you know what” moment when the realization of planning to-do lists grows in your mind! Since it has been a while you can catch up on my planning story here, here, here and here.  Right now we are still on the hunt for a photographer, but I am putting my panic aside to gather my thoughts about color, food and decor.  […]

Inspired Ink posts were originally begun on my blog in 2007.  This past summer I began blogging for Weddingbee PRO and decided to share  my Inspired Ink posts with the PRO audience.  As I am sure many of you know Bee Kim, founder of Weddingbee.com recently gave birth and thus decided to put Weddingbee PRO on ice for a few months.  We all wish Bee some much deservedrest and time with family! So Inspired Ink has returned here  but for the next few weeks I would like to share my creations until now only seen on Weddingbee PRO!  Enjoy! As […]
