Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

I love emails from Aleah of Valley and Co.  Aleah and Nick are a husband/wife event styling and planning duo with a veritable creative waterfall of ideas that always seems to be flowing.  The latest project from this team is a collection of our Signature Painted Paper Bouquets.  The Bride is marrying on New Year’s Day and the look is all about modern glam.  Shimmer and satin finishes, a bit of rhinestone and crisp whites will combine to create a glamorous and sexy affair. Mom and I are beyond thrilled to dive into this project.  Our Sculpted Bloom bouquets are […]

It has been a dream of mine to have our work included in the innovative force that is the online magazine Utterly Engaged.  Artistic content and creative minds are at the core of this marvel which is only a slight 1 year old.  12 Issue later and Utterly Engaged has marked its place in so many hearts and minds as the trailblazer in new wedding media.  Impeccable content is delivered to brides and industry obsessed alike on a monthly basis, keeping us all brimming with ideas and better for it.  When I received an email from Lucia and then a […]

Aleah from Good Life Events called me one day earlier this year with a lofty idea (aren’t those the best kind?).  A marathon day of six wedding shoots was planned and she wanted me to create all the custom stationery to coordinate.  I was immediately intrigued and knew my creative muscle would be challenged since I only had 2 weeks to make it happen! The first of the six tabletop shoots was featured recently on the sweet blog, Merci New York.  Chic and thoughtful design details for weddings are this blog’s passion so Aleah and Nick‘s English Style tablescape fit […]

A few weeks ago I had this idea.  Ideas tend to get me in trouble since they usually require a lot of work and come to me so last minute that I am scrambling to make them happen quickly.  That being said though, these last minute ideas usually elicit really exciting results and lead to dream collaborations with my favorite people! Recently Anne-Marie (editor of Perfect Bound) visioned a fun collaboration for the two of us.  Now I couldn’t stop at just one project for a Saturday afternoon…I went on to plan a photoshoot of my Sculpted Bloom invitations and […]

For the past few weeks my Mom and I  have been involved in a special little project.  I had this idea to create bouquets made entirely from hand-painted watercolor paper.  So last weekend we headed out to local markets to find vintage elements to adorn these creations.  I have always been secretly obsessed with old clip on earrings and ladies hankies.  I love the color and romantic detail in these pieces so was thrilled to incorporate them into my designs. So,  honestly, what do you think?  Stay tuned for more about our progress…
