Indigo Blue Stationery at Estancia Culinaria

When we were asked to participate in a shoot at the lovely Estancia Culinaria venue in Florida, of course we jumped at the opportunity. It’s a rustic-elegant setting, offering a perfect backdrop. We love how it all turned out and are so excited to share these images with you! Especially that contrast between the casual and inviting outdoor setting and the abstract, artistic stationery pieces… it all came together perfectly. While many softer shades were used in the florals, the overall color theme was “indigo blue” and we could not wait to design a stationery suite to celebrate this beautiful […]

We’re so happy to share this Soft Watercolor Venue Illustration Wedding Stationery suite with you! All of Karlene’s luxurious stationery drew inspiration from her fantastic wedding location, The Ashford Estate. Each piece featured a different view of the property, to give guests a peek at where the festivities would take place. Not only did each piece have a different illustration, but as presentation of the suite was super-important to the bride, we created layers of softly hand-painted pieces to unwrap. We began with the invite itself, set against opulent cardstocks and a subtle lavender watercolor wash in a gatefold presentation. This […]

Shimmery painted details decorate the letterpressed blooms, and gold edges offset the whole piece. We also designed save the dates and day-of pieces for this bride, each piece had a character of its own, while still maintaining an overall bold, glamorous […]

custom-patterned-wedding-invitation

We’ve created many a myriad of takes on the traditional couples’ family crest, but none quite like this one. These Modern Crest Wedding Invitations were articulated in timeless white engraving on linen cardstock, gold foil with hand painted abstract florals. From the beginning, Wendy had clear ideas for the design and presentation of her stationery. Each one was nested in a custom made, hand painted wood crate, with a full silk bow and a lusciously painted ensemble folder. Organic, free-flowing calligraphy from Kelle McCarter defines the body of the design, crowned with a monogrammed crest incorporating the same floral pattern. {As an extra glint of glam, gold […]
