When I first met Heather I instantly knew she was the perfect client. With a love for watercolors and a heart for travel, we had so much to draw from when sitting down to design for her wedding. Heather’s celebration unfolded near the ocean so we created a suite of artwork to communicate their love ocean air and sandy travel. First was an abstract ocean pattern meant to be free hand painted on wood blocks.
Subtle watercolor textures on various signs in addition to a sketch of the Santa Monica Pier on each menu continued the seaside vibe.
Each menu featured subtle blue hand painted brushstrokes to highlight our breezy sketch.
Table names were designed after Heather and Scott’s extensive travels. Eloquent descriptions of place were paired with watercolor paintings of everything from picturesque landscapes to exotic critters.
Freshly painted watercolor stripes…
Thanks for following along, enjoy!

The studio is bustling with ideas and projects this time of year. We love the variety of mid-summer, everything from blooms and feathers to venue sketches and snowflakes are on the painting table! I pulled a few favorites from the last week to share. First up is Alyssa’s cheerful and elegant day-of accessories. Custom wedding programs, wedding seating cards and handmade wedding table number cards all coordinated in shades of pink, gold and blush!
Samantha’s lush and whimsical blooms are perfectly balanced in shades of blue, lavender and periwinkle. We adore the combination of poppies and hydrangeas with Envelopments iconic Repousse pattern in Dove. A sweet art tag embellishment for her Pocketfold presents the look as a mindful gift to each guest.
Lastly, but least in no way are Jason and Anne’s SKETCHED Save the Dates. A breezy drawing of the venue in Acalpulco, Mexico complete with crawling Bougainvillia blooms creates casual drama with every brushstroke.
