It has been a while since I featured our Signature Vintage Lacy Tree Wedding Invitation;  Long enough I would say!  Our Lacy tree has a long history, an evolving character and is beloved by us all at the studio.  Whimsical charm, custom sketches and a lighthearted mood make the tree a constant favorite.  Melanie first contacted us and knew the tree was for her.  Marrying in a vegetable garden *love*, the lacy quality of the tree seemed perfect.  I suggested a basket full of veggies nestled under the tree. We then added dragonflies and a pretty wrap in Envelopments Repousse […]

I explore Karen Tran’s blog and website almost daily and each time I visit I notice something new. I fell for her suspended orchid centerpiece creation – the graceful shapes, crisp color and glistening details are just breathtaking.

I love how the shadows in the glass ornaments echo the crystal glistening on the invitation. Darin Fong Photography Darin Fong Photography

The editors at The Knot also loved Jenna’s wedding and chose to feature her day in the recent […]

Several weeks ago I received a lovely email from Monika in Sweden. She spoke of her plans for a September wedding at a countryside Inn and a day filled with thoughtful details for her guests. After working through the first design round of her Vintage Stamped Tree invitation, her partner Gordon sent me a beautiful email (it is not often I can describe email as beautiful) detailing more design direction. It is the following paragraph that stopped me in my tracks and immediately transported me to the magical day he so expertly described. So this is what Gordon wrote: “We […]

Chelsie Anderson of Tree Line Photography captured these spectacular images – I visited the blog and could have browsed for hours. Be sure to stop by to see further into Angie and Ryan’s day. We created a lovely collection for Angie and Ryan. When Angie first contacted me she loved the impact of our big blooms collection but none of the illustrations seemed to fit the warm, color saturated look she was planning. I suggested the Dahlia and went to work on this watercolor piece. The Dahlia was carried throughout the day onto table numbers and programs. My favorite shot! […]
