Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

So I have quite possibly the sweetest shoot to share with you today.  In addition to the adorable couple and finest of vintage styling, this shoot is even more dear to me because of the team who collaborated.  Danielle Pasternak is a planner here in my hometown and is making a name for herself far beyond Pennsylvania state lines.  This shoot, her entry for a contest to earn a scholarship to Backstage Bridal Pro in California, proves that Danielle has quite a vision for herself.

Could this be any sweeter?

For the stationery I went a smidge modern with ellipses, dots and  heavily painted peonies.

A milk buffet, oh yes.

It was such a blast painting these…

And of course, this suite would not have been complete without a bit of gold glitter!

Maggpie Vintage finery set the stage…

Cakes galore, large and small. Dying over these ruffles.

A big thanks to Danielle for including me in this project and BRAVO on winning the scholarship!! XO
