Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Today’s post comes late as I sit in my sweet little hotel room in Atlanta, surrounded by the first quiet of my day.  Over the years I have traveled… a lot while meeting talented folks along the way.  I make it a point to soak in my travel; meet people, talk long and dream big.  So a few years ago I did just that at an industry party with two ladies from Atlanta; Sharon, who makes brilliant cakes and Christine, who captures life with her keen and artful eye.  We spoke about a big project with loads of inspiration, delicate […]

For the last week or so in Pennsylvania, Spring has been in full bloom.  With temps in the 60’s and 70’s it is hard not to have a bit of Spring Fever.  Today I’m sharing some of my favorites from the last few weeks with designs focusing on…you guessed it, flowers!  Whether lavishly painted or subtly watercolored, these Spring Watercolor Wedding Invitations encompass all that is romantic and feminine.  Some are more traditional, other more flirty and whimsical.

Hope you’ve been enjoying my trip down memory lane this week. Missed Parts I and II?  Even though this shoot took place last year, there are so many more images I’ve been dying to share.  Today is all about the stationery.  So dive in to see more shots of the custom invitations, programs and menus designed in collaboration with the talented calligrapher, Moya Minns!  Salvador Dali proved to be a superb muse for this project with a wealth of work and personality to draw design detail from.  Over the top details mixed with eclectic and subtle colors are what this […]

So I’m back today with more from our very artistic wedding inspiration shoot from last year.  You’ll notice we began to infuse more mustard into the color palette here.  So read on for more images, more dessert, more!  Remember, all new content is denoted with an *. Originally posted June 2011 I’ve dedicated this week to featuring every detail from our Dali project recently seen on Style Me Pretty. If you missed the first post, have a look here. Desiree and Sara from Desiree Spinner Events jumped on board this project very early on and took the lead in producing […]
