gold-foil-rustic-wedding-invitations

Who doesn’t love whitewashed wood, gold foil, bright succulents, touches of lavender, and a sunny coastal setting? This rustic yet sophisticated set has it all… Aurora’s invitation set and day-of pieces reflect the airy skies, leafy forests, and bright sparkling light of Big Sur. Creamy white hand painted botanical details, shimmery painted gold contrasted with muted walnut wood for table numbers, and dramatic bark textured programs combine to make perfectly textured harmony. Celebrate under the open sky, with details of rustic elegance to make the day.

Friends, I adore throwing parties.  Little feels quite as exhilarating as witnessing the fruits of your artistic labors being enjoyed across many experiences and times.  From a WOW invitation being delivered and receiving texts about “how amazing they are” to sitting down to a five course meal carefully orchestrated for exactly the guest list you’ve curated – well it feels just wonderful.

I’ve been doing a lot of late nights these days.  Not sure if I’m trying to pump myself up for sleepless baby nights or what but less sleep has been my mantra as of late.  Something about the quiet of the house when you’re the only one awake is sacred in a way, like you are experiencing time that no one else is a part of.  In these wee hours time opens up and slows down.  Thinking takes on a new meaning and my hand craves a brush, pen, marker or whatever will facilitate meditation on paper. {In these late […]

luxury-wedding-invitations

I was introduced to Maria and her family by the amazing Lauren Chitwood of Laura Chitwood Events.  With a ton of inspiration in our arsenal, Jillian and I went to the task of creating a fine art, interior design inspired invitation full of bold color and luxe details. {We began with an instinctive gathering of inspirational imagery which included a vibe strongly influenced by the incomparable Kelly Wearstler.} Interior Design inspiration for these Purple Glam Watercolor Wedding Invitations is just about the best place you could begin.  A single room can contain layers of stimulating texture, color and finish. {We encourage our […]
