Our most popular pin on Pinterest lately was Anisha’s glorious watercolor rose wedding invitation! So today have a look a bit deeper into this eclectic suite filled with watercolor roses, seeded eucalyptus, leafy greens and loads of shimmery sheer ink brushstroke textures!
The softest of pinks and greens against Crane Lettra stock (which has the most perfect, cottony finish.
A calligrapher penned select details like names and dates, which we then turned into watercolor silhouettes.
Chains of hanging watercolor rosettes transform a simple information card.
The rsvp card backdrop was filled with lively watercolor textures in an ombre of muted pinks.
Big hugs to Anisha for inspiring such a pretty watercolor design!
It’s been a busy season here at the studio and way too long since the last Peek into the Studio! I love this time of year as we’re still creating suites for summer while wrapping up fall wedding invitations – the best of both worlds…
First is Allyza’s eclectic wedding invitation combining watercolor sketches of a vineyard scene surrounded by late summer blooms like Lisianthus and Dahlias…The intensity of the Walnut veneer adds elegance and sophistication overall in an unexpected way.
Allyza chose to wrap her Pocketfold with lace and a simple tag illustrating the wedding venue…
Deanna’s suite combines the most delicate bouquet of Hydrangea, Garden Roses and Dahlia with a delightful mix of cardstocks in Indigo, Paisley and blush.
I love how the raspberry tones of watercolor mingle with the shimmering blush stock here…
Deb’s lakeside keepsake wedding invitations were a hit here. We call them keepsake because the simple folded concept allows guests to fold over and frame the artwork if they would like.
Elizabeth and Joseph’s Tree Wedding invitation suite was full of personal details from their chapel, dog and cat and a depiction of the tree under which they were engaged!
The little details…
Caitlin’s Vintage inspired Wedding Invitation suite featured watercolor banners and roses all painted with sheer shimmery inks.
Alison’s Watercolor Dahlia Wedding Invitation is definitely a new favorite of mine…Sketched lace cardstock framing is an unexpected detail that adds so much interest. Touches of sheer shimmery ink were added over the individually watercolored blooms.
Tara’s mix of oceanside architecture and painterly blooms speaks volumes of the charming affair to come.
So what am I up to?
Enjoying my most recent creative shoot seen in the latest Magnolia Rouge Magazine!
Painting Dahlias…well trying to keep up with what my garden is putting out…
Planning a mid summer celebration for the Momental Girls!!
I remember the sun trickling in early that morning. It’s hard to not get good light in a greenhouse but that cold December morning seemed like perfection. Dew on the window panes with succulents and ferns at every turn, the room came alive. Every year I celebrate with the team…offering up an amazing meal, in a wow place, making each detail sing their praises for incredible year of work well done. The Vintage Greenhouse at Hillside Farms in Dallas, PA seemed magical to me, so I inquired about cleaning up the space and taking over for a day…the rest, well, look on…
Maggie and Jason from Maggpie Vintage Rentals partnered with me to clear, clean up and style this space. Early morning coffees and warms clothes got us through as we set table, swept the floors and tossed ropes up and over plumbing to hang the evergreen filled baskets. Then load in of their gorgeous collection of gold, ivory and green settees began. I knew quickly this lunch would be one we’d all remember for a very long time.
Leafy greens , feathery petaled blooms and berries were sketched into an intricate yet delicate pattern to adorn each invitation. Each was individually watercolored with teals, emeralds and white against a saturated grassy green stock. I just love this shot against the damask pattern of Maggie’s settee!
Every bit of glass in the place would come alive with sparkle as the sun peeked in and out of the soft clouds that day.
Sullivan Owen created our florals with a combination of white peonies, ranunculus, spray roses plus berries and pussy willow.
Menus took their leafy, botanical cues from the invitation but in softer tones overall. And yes, that is my handwriting on each!
Maggie created a master composition with cut glass plates, bowls, milk glass details and the sweet tied up flatware in vintage embroidered napkins. Love the white on white here….
Pat Greenfield of the newly re-opened Grico’s restaurant locally always handles my food! She is a true artist and always envisions the most inventive and visually stunning menu.
There’s nothing I love more than an amazing top down shot of everyone enjoying….Amanda at Swoon Over It knows my obsession with these style of images and has no problem hopping on a ladder mid-meal to make it happen! Love her!
Jasmine at The Couture Cakery blew us away yet again. You may remember her sweets for my employee Jess’s Bridal Shower? I asked Jasmine to vision a dark chocolate feast of sweets to contrast the almost all white lunch…Just look at what she imagined….
This sugar rose…is beyond. especially against the rich brown backdrop.
Possibly my favorite shot of the day and because it seems to capture the sparkle and emotion we all experienced within the glass walls of our greenhouse home for a day.
Thank you to this incredible team of creatives that brought this vision together and thank you to the Momental Girls for giving us a reason to celebrate!
