Handmade custom invitations & stationery

Well the team weathered the storm well back in Pennsylvania.  Me, I’m here in sunny Utah and thrilled to finally be sharing the first of three runway to reality shoots we produced for Occasions Magazine earlier this year.  Using three Claire Pettibone gowns as our muse, 3 distinct scenes were visioned and first today is the Amelie. The point of this project was to communicate how a gown can infuse it’s aesthetic into countless other moments throughout the wedding – cake, stationery, table decor and on and on…  The billowy freshness of the Amelie gown made me dream in muted […]

Check out Part I of my Atlanta adventure… Read on for more! Atlanta breezed by in a whirlwind way leaving me with sore feet, good memories and a few remaining red velvet cupcakes made by the lovely Sharon.  But seriously, my trek to Atlanta was less about the food I ate of the laughs I had and all about the people I connected with.  Your besties on Twitter become real people face to face and suddenly you feel like you’ve know them forever, in a small but real way. Starting the day with 3 Claire Pettibone gowns staring you down […]

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 […]

Amy’s plans are progressing as the wedding is only 3 months away!  I have the distinct feeling that once her wedding shower has come and gone July 30th will be here in a blink.  After a weekend in Maryland wrapping up decor details with Amy, we have now moved onto flowers.  Yes, you guessed it, not only am I the stationer for My Best Friend’s Wedding, I am also planner, floral designer and all around awesome Matron of Honor (wink, wink).   With a lot of help from friends and family, it was important for Amy to have a wedding […]

Today’s guest blogger is a kindred artist that I couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce.   Amy Osaba is all about the ruffly, romance of the bloom.  Being a lover of all things floral, I was drawn to her site instantly.  I could spend hours  sifting through the artfully crafted bouquets, styled shoots and decor creations she pours her passion into. Welcome Amy!! Heidi Geldhauser of Our Labor of Love First I would like to thank Kristy for inviting me to guest blog today. What an honor.  I have admired her work for the last couple of years and am in […]
