Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

This week has been  a dream.  Working in Utah somehow doesn’t feel like work, especially when you are surrounded by friends old and new.  Travel keeps me inspired in a way I could have never dreamed and I am blessed to have a career that can be done from anywhere in the world.  I count my lucky stars daily.  For those of you who have been following this blog for a while you know that I heart Utah and spend a good deal of time there.  The hubby and I even renewed our vows in Zion National Park earlier this year.

The last few days were spent with some folks I am proud to call friends; a group of people whose talent and passion literally bring me to tears.  A project of massive proportions came to life this week.  We made pretty all around Southern Utah but in the end all the pretty in the world can’t be traded for good, kind and giving people in front of and behind the camera.  Isn’t that what weddings are all about?  The people?

The hubby grabbed this snapshot as the sun set over the La Verkin Overlook yesterday.  Only a fraction of the scene’s majesty was captured here and I cannot wait to share more soon.

In case you are wondering what the My Story is Art posts are all about you can catch up here, here, here and here.

Coming soon are some gorgeous Real Wedding posts I’ve been dying to share!
