Handmade custom invitations & stationery

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 […]

While browsing through the gorgeous shots sent over by Denise, a client from earlier this year, I stumbled upon this shot.   Of course I will be featuring the full wedding here soon with all its lovely detail and stationery included but first I had to single out this particular image.  The saturated color and dancing light captured seems to fade dreamily when compared to the sheer look of joy on Denise’s face.  Sunlight seems to be a necessary component in the color palette for the day.  The sun in this shot seems to literally transform each shade of green and […]

Have you seen the new issue of Inside Weddings?  I am thrilled to say our Painted Orchid invitation set was featured in the Summer issue.  WOW what an honor! I was asked to create a green and fuchsia ensemble based on Tara’s design, hand-picked by the Editor herself…can you say, gulp (I did when the call came in from Leila)?  I immediately contacted my friends at Envelopments® and they were gracious enough to create a custom Pocketfold® in one of their newest stocks – Raw Silk Gold Cabana!  Within days I had 4 expertly crafted Pocketfolds® in my  hands and […]

Being this is the week the renewal is taking place in Zion National Park, I thought it could be fun to show off some past work done for clients with a similar idea to ours.  I am a huge fan of destination weddings in any location although get really excited when I hear of couples choosing not-so-traditional spots for their day. Vernal Falls in Yosemite National Park held special meaning for Sheri and Tom.  Our waterfall painting added the perfect, personal touch to their Custom Save the Dates. Edward and Joel fell in love with the magesty of Sedona and […]

Earlier this year Kathryn contacted me with an idea.  Her wedding she explained was to be inspired in part by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  How lovely.  Her ideas were clear but Kathryn reached out to me to bring the vision to life and I am SOOO glad she did! We decided a new Vintage Lacy Tree illustration was in order so I went to work on created this magical, washy watercolor tree trunk complete with a peeking fairy wing, dragonflies, hummingbird and creepy, crawly tree roots.  I have been experimenting with new closure/embellishment details and this hanging shimmery painted […]
