Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Several months ago I received word that our sweet couple Jill and Kevin’s wedding was set to be featured in The Knot, GA.  We were so thrilled as Jill has the loveliest sense of detail and design and was a sheer joy to work with.  Jill’s celebration spot, Bent Tree in Jasper, Georgia gave the couple all the inspiration needed to craft a wow wedding with the fabulous Ashley Baber by their side.  We asked Jill to give us a little peek into her day, so here goes! What was your inspiration for your colors and/or theme? We wanted to […]

Earlier this week I shared details from Jaime and Tom’s classically detailed wedding in Ireland.  Today includes a look at the cake, stationery and stunning reception! Each invitation featured a stunning palette of ecru, eggplant and taupe.  The abbey sketch by our Jessica, was hand painted with shimmery sage inks! Jessica’s sketch at the top left. FROM JAIME’S MOM: How did your stationery play a role in the wedding? The custom-illustrated stationery (invitations and coordinating thank you notecards) set the tone for an elegant and romantic destination wedding in Ireland, featuring historic architecture and Irish symbolism.It was known that many […]

When I first received the inquiry to design an invitation inspired by Adare Castle in Ireland, I could hardly believe my luck.  The Hubby and I had the good fortune of spending a night at this castle two years ago during our time in Co Limerick, Ireland.  We arrived there one stormy night and immediately felt like we were walking into a scene from a renaissance novel, quite enchanting.  Sharon the Bride’s Mom spent several months with Kelley and I designing the perfect hand painted letterpress wedding invitations for her daughter. So today a little teaser look into Jaime and […]

I am so excited to share Part II of Denise and JJ’s wedding.  Part II is all about the glorious color and texture their venue brought plus a little about Denise’s unique hand painted letterpress wedding invitations! Get a look at the quirky fuchsia chaise and those mod lantern/screen structures at each table.  I love the contrast of shapes and finishes; organic verses structured and lush verses sleek…stunning. A touch of waxflower in the centerpieces is so unexpected! Quite possibly my favorite shot…the bubbles, the ferns, the texture, oh my! Denise chose our Vintage Lacy Tree Collection with dragonfly artwork […]

This stunning wedding deserves a two day post so that is what is will have!  When Denise emailed me her favorite shots I was totally in love and couldn’t wait to share!  Great style, impeccable sense of color and insane details epitomize this exotic wedding.  Erron Ocampo captured the couple and their party so beautifully I just had to dedicate this first post to them (stationery goodness to follow soon).  Fernwood Gardens is a lush quintessential rain forest/exotic tropical location in Manila, Philippines that acted as the romantic backdrop for JJ and Denise’s celebration.  It seems every inch of the […]
