Summer is in full swing and somehow this year Summer seems that much sweeter.  As many of you know we had an insane Spring working with tons of amazing couples including Sean Parker and Alexandra Lenas.  Not taking many breaks for the better part of this year I’ve just now begun settling into to a bit of a slower pace.  Taking time to paint and breathe a bit more than I had become accustomed to over the last months. Revisiting an old favorite from college, gouache has made its way back into my palette…gouache is essentially a milky watercolor if […]

I’ve decided to take a little break this week from my blogging hiatus and for one very good reason.  My Best Friend’s Wedding made the pages of one of my favorites, Bridal Guide Magazine.  I was honored enough that they featured her Parisian Wedding Shower last year but when they picked up her wedding as a follow up story, I could hardly believe my luck!  Amy’s wedding was a joyous time not only for the Bride and her Groom but also for two best friends who live far from eachother and have been dreaming of this wedding since mine came […]

Today I am wrapping up a week of wedding invitation inspiration for the beachcomber in all of us. First up was a bold red hibiscus and next I shared a favorite Sculpted Bloom Invitation! The Bird of Paradise has become a long-loved symbol of all things tropical.  We’ve interpreted this bloom in countless designs but this one painted by Jessica, just sticks.  Juicy tones reminiscent of sunrise and sunset all at the same time.  What could be better? Hope you’ve enjoyed my vacay inspiring series. Now grab a lemonade and take a moment….Cheers!
