Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

I remember a phone call many months ago that stopped me in my tracks.  A simple conversation led to real ideas which brought us to one very exciting end.  A few days before Christmas, Envelopments, the well known company who defines moments with paper, launched their release of Trellis, a new pattern built exclusively from my watercolor paintings.  Originally inspired by Cherry Blossoms and Queen Annes Lace, I worked closely with the Envelopments team to create a series of detailed watercolor paintings meant to be spun together in a mix of magical repeat.  Graceful leaves, wispy petals and even a […]

We’ve been working with Michael for some time now.  It has been pure fun.  Michael trusts us implicitly and that has made for some epic stationery design!  We began our painted paper journey with these Engagement Party Invitations, then moved on to the painted ribbon save the dates and now we have reached the wedding invitations.  Michael is our first Bride to have us Curate a collection for her, literally.   I am in the process of finding over 300 unique brooches to adorn each and every wedding invitation.   In Michael’s words: “Lovely, just lovely!  Thanks for finding these, they all […]

Thanks so much for following along my behind the scenes look at my Alchemy at the Barn shoot.  If you missed the first two posts, check here and here!  Creepy was a word that continually entered my mind when designing this table.  I know, I know…creepy…for a wedding concept?  Something Colin Cowie said at Engage 10 recently, replays in my mind and I paraphrase; when planning an event, you want to keep your guests on the edge of comfort.  Now certainly Mr. Cowie did not mean seat guests at rigid chairs and serve cold food.  I think what he meant […]
