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!

The world is abuzz.  Well execpt for those in Ravello, according to Marcy Blum. With the Royal Wedding fever to reach its pinnacle in about two hours time according to my eastern clock, the suspense is barely tolerable.  So what does this artist, invitation designer and all around wedding junkie do…blog!  Welcome to the very late night, super-royal special edition of RiceInk.  Never before have I scheduled a post at such a late hour but today’s historical events call for nothing less out of the ordinary!! So today I have a opulent, over the top table scape designed by one […]

Last year around this time I was amidst a flurry of plans for our 10 year Renewal.  Flowers were a big question mark especially since my Mom was excited to create arrangements for us.  We literally had no idea where to begin.  I began researching wholesale sources for wedding flowers and stumbled upon FiftyFlowers.com several times.  After a few phone calls and a ton of time choosing blooms we placed our order and the rest is history.  I simply cannot say enough good about this company.  My firsthand experience with their blooms and more importantly their impeccable customer service was […]

Last fall the lovely ladies of Eve Events got in touch to involve me in what turned out to be an incredible experience.  They explained that the editors of The Knot were crafting an inspiration story around the beauty of a Monique Lhuillier gown.  All details from china to linens and stationery were to be inspired by the The Field of Dreams Collection as described here by Monique herself: “Butterflies, branches, twigs, wheat stalks and feathers all delicately woven into the collection.  Lots of texture created with organza, tulle, floral embroideries appliqued onto sheer corsets with whimsical skirts…Romance is back!!” […]

You’ve had the chance to read and see all about our Walk the Line shoot in Austin here, here and here!  Today I’m giving a behind the scenes look at the stationery and some never before seen shots!  The stationery was inspired by folk art from the 50’s and 60’s.  I created the collection from a series of simple brushstrokes from tiny swooshes and dots to daisy-like petaled blooms.  Fabric played a big role in this shoot from the quirky dresses by Jessica Audey to the vintage hymnals.  For months I collected Hymnals and became enchanted by their shabby covers […]
