Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

I took a little break from blogging while away at Engage!11 in San Diego last week.  I’ve missed sharing all the fun at the studio and cannot wait to get caught up this week!  First up is a delicious watercolor painting I created for Keaton.  She wanted a look that was vibrant and saturated with gorgeous fall color.  Sunflowers, Dahlias and Delphinium combined shades or burnt orange, blue and golden yellow to create warmth, drama and texture.  Her late summer wedding invitations could just as easily speak of a warm early fall or late October wedding. For Keaton’s Fall Wedding […]

Just a quick peek at programs for Ali!  Ali has been with us since save the dates and is quite possibly the most decisive bride we’ve known!  Her look stayed focused and clean from day one.  There is definitely something to be said for a tiny bit of tunnel vision in wedding planning.  With so much inspiration out there it can become difficult to stay focused on your instincts.  When you do, like Ali, the results can be breathtaking!!  Have a look at how Ali’s design processed unfolded here and enjoy some close-up views of her pretty tri-fold painted programs!

Kelley is our Managing Assistant and is the classic romantic of the group.  She kept the entire studio up to date […]

I will be forever fascinated by the undulating, watery tones of watercolor textures.  I remember picking up my first paintbrush as a young girl and being taught how to make color burst on a wet page.  To this day nothing gets me more inspired than putting brush to a wet sheet of watercolor paper to watch the colors explode.  Wedding trends have caught on and fast.  I adore the delicately painted linen seen in the top left as well as Canvas and Canopy’s watercolor interpretation in blooms seen in the bottom right!  Last but not least are the sugar-color stunning-ness […]

One of the most poignant memories I have with my best friend Amy is captured in a simple snapshot of us, barely 18 years old posing all wide eyed in front of Notre Dame de Paris.  A last hoorah type of high school trip to France brought us together for 9 days in the city of love where we ate, had our first sips of wine together, fought like mad and shopped our hearts out.  Although throwing two young girls together, far away from home for over a week proved to let emotions run high and cause a quarrel or […]
