Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
I’m back with more from our Fiore celebration shoot! To get caught up, have a look here to read more about Envelopments’® most recent and very spirited pattern, Fiore!
The design process for this pattern was a very collaborative one, where a certain synergy between creative minds was a must. My watercolor swirls, swags and swooshes were crafted into a detailed, whimsical and precise pattern…
What I adore most about these projects are the collaborations they inspire…a perfect example is this painted Paloma’s Nest piece…Delicate vines in shimmer copper and green against the white porcelain sit effortlessly in this scene.
Fiore inspired a rich saturated palette along with ornate but edited details throughout the shoot; a kind of artful opulence.
We wanted a nod to a royal vibe but one that was without a doubt youthful and modern. Jess crafted this painted crown for a bit of humor.
Love these next two shots so much and considering how long they took to set up, I just had to share! Our day unfolded on stunning Hillside Farms property on the locally famed Cottage porch. This family crest on the wall of the porch has always fascinated me. So the crest got a bit of Fiore styling too…
And then there was the bouquet….
A whopping 10 stationery suites were created for this shoot! It only makes sense as Fiore is incredibly versatile, speaking in volumes to design aesthetics from ultra rustic and classic to whimsical and modern.
I’m in love with one of Envelopments® newest colors “Lucky”. Here I combined Fiore with a cherry wood layer, Meant to Be Calligraphy and of course the verdant richness of Lucky. Free-hand painted vines and leaves were added in copper.
The full suite…
This suite was designed with a more rustic affair in mind. I love the eclectic mix of soft blush, teals and taupe tones…Abstract flourishes with juicy watercolor textures were inspired by my research of Italian pottery.

And how could we not have a closer look at the Fiore Whiskey bar? We had such a blast Fiore-styling iconic brands like Jack Daniels and Jim Beam. I want to see a full real wedding bar styled like this! Mindy Weiss, maybe you can make it happen?
