Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
Hollywood glamour is back in a big way! The swagger and style of Old Hollywood has inspired us all through the years but returned with more verve than ever. Recently the projects on the painting table for clients like Nicole, Michael and Melissa speak volumes to this trend. Stasia and Lynell our friends in Newport, RI from Exquisite Events called on us to create a massive stationery collection for their wedding room featured at The Special Event in Phoenix, Arizona. The look was lush with all shades of purple, crystals dripping from everywhere and bountiful blooms at every turn. We created stationery for two rooms, first the bar and lounge and second the main celebration room. All photography by Melissa Jill (save for my snapshot at the end).
Traditional venetian mirrors were our muse here. A stylized illustration of the mirror was combined with our free spirited ranunculus painted in purple.
Each place setting in the inspiration room featured our Sketched interpretations of iconic Hollywood stars. Lauren Bacall looking lovely here!
My snapshot here of various pieces as they left the studio. Audrey Hepburn Sketched is a favorite! Check back soon for more on the celebration room details and a closer look at the cake, seating card display and more!
