Handmade custom invitations & stationery

Art in the Skye

We think it’s safe to say that Kristy’s recent shoot on the Isle of Skye was a huge success… {Even a quick look at all the amazing details are enough to see how the design and stationery was inspired by the moody green backdrop of Skye} Two custom statement invite suites offer different interpretations of the location. The first is a whimsical painted box full of found woodland treasures, and a soft watercolor landscape detail. The second gives a textural, hand-sculpted suggestion of the landscape, and features free-flowing ink patterning, and distressed silver foil. Both invites capture the ever-changing atmosphere […]

{As an artist, I dream of weddings in compositions – much like a painting.} Balance, sheen, negative space all play into stationery design.  An invitation is really a composition, just like a landscape or architectural study – so many factors to consider and at any moment you can make or break the look.

To honor the many street artists we enjoyed in Paris, I hired […]

I wrote this post, what seems like forever ago when knee deep in plans for my best friend’s wedding shower last year.  Here we are exactly 1 year later and I’m over the moon to share the whole party as seen in the newest issue of Bridal Guide Magazine, on newsstands today!!
