Handmade custom invitations & stationery

I love emails from Aleah of Valley and Co.  Aleah and Nick are a husband/wife event styling and planning duo with a veritable creative waterfall of ideas that always seems to be flowing.  The latest project from this team is a collection of our Signature Painted Paper Bouquets.  The Bride is marrying on New Year’s Day and the look is all about modern glam.  Shimmer and satin finishes, a bit of rhinestone and crisp whites will combine to create a glamorous and sexy affair. Mom and I are beyond thrilled to dive into this project.  Our Sculpted Bloom bouquets are […]

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 recently, 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 […]

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 […]

Last week I was introduced to the work of Mike Larson Inc. I have been drooling ever since.  Next week I will be sharing a Real Momental Wedding featuring his work but until then this shot will have to do!  Whether artfully staged by the photographer or impromptu this is a shot to treasure and one that should make the mantel for sure!   Want to see more from this wedding? Photographers, have a fun shot to share;one that captures a hidden moment or a stunning moment of color?  Get in touch kristyrice@www.momentaldesigns.com
