Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
We love working with Constance, from Constance Curtis Events! Her design aesthetic gives us the opportunity to spread our creative wings and get serious with our brushes. Heather and Scott’s wedding recently seen on Green Wedding Shoes took a joyful color palette and the couple’s love of travel and spun it into a masterful scene of moments.
To begin our love affair with this event, lets talk about the palette. When Constance first got in touch she described a blueberry shade… not navy, not indigo, but juicy, fresh, blueberry. Love.
Possibly a favorite stationery moment from this wedding were the seating “cards” Rough cut wood block were painted with an abstract ocean pattern in shades of blue. Handwritten names on a shimmery burnt sugar cardstock set an artful yet sophisticated tone.
Holly Flora always blows us away with their thoughtful arrangements full of grace and evidence of a savvy compositional eye. Some pinks led towards coral for an eclectic vibe that speaks softly but with confidence.
The paper story began with a sketch of the Santa Monica Pier individually finished with ink brushstrokes in aqua shimmer.
Heather and Scott’s affinity for travel found its voice on each table. A short story and coordinating watercolor sketch informed guests of their many stops around the globe. Alternating paper choices in blueberry and pink avoided an overly matchy-matchy look.
Croquet and Photobooth signs were purist in their simple watercolor painted technique…
I’m not sure what was said in this moment. I don’t have to know. What is obvious is the pure joy present at this celebration. The couples personality shone everywhere and that is what makes this event so magnetic. Proud to have been part. XO
