Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

So I’m back to dive in deeper to the stationery I created for My Best Friend’s Wedding.  I warn you, I took every opportunity to express myself and this couple on paper so there is no shortage of painted paper detail here.  The save the date was all about introducing guests to #1, the bold color palette and #2, poke a bit of fun at the curious wedding venue the couple chose….yup, look closely, no joke. The Message in the Bottle Wedding Invitation Design is one I’ve talked about before but I just can’t help myself…talking about it again.  From […]

Happy Birthday to me!  Feeling like I’m surrounded by the prettiest presents ever today since The Momental Girls have been painting their hearts out this week!

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 […]

Thanks so much for following along my behind the scenes look at my Alchemy at the Barn shoot.  If you missed the first two posts, check here and here!  Creepy was a word that continually entered my mind when designing this table.  I know, I know…creepy…for a wedding concept?  Something Colin Cowie said at Engage 10 , replays in my mind and I paraphrase; when planning an event, you want to keep your guests on the edge of comfort.  Now certainly Mr. Cowie did not mean seat guests at rigid chairs and serve cold food.  I think what he meant […]
