Timeless Southern elegance comes in many settings, but we always love a beautiful plantation surrounded by moss-covered oak trees. We’ve illustrated many lovely venues, and today are sharing just a couple of our brides’ Watercolor Plantation Wedding Invites. Leafy pathways, open porches made for socializing, and easy charm give that Southern character distinguishable from just one breath of that sweet southern air. Let us illustrate your own special place and story with graceful watercolor and hand painted brushstrokes.  Perhaps you’ll call a lake house your wedding’s home or a stately private mansion will only do.  A flower framed pond can be just […]

Special projects for our favorite magazines are always the most fun.  When Leila at Be Inspired PR emailed and said the gals at Southern Weddings were interested in a painted backdrop…my heart stopped a bit!  How fun?! I enlisted the help of my invitation artist/creative assistant and all around talented gal Jess D…well actually Jess Z. (she’s the Momental Girl who just got married)… We painted away for the good part of two days – the finished piece was nearly 10 x10 feet!! KT Merry photographed the entire Freshly Squeezed shoot…stunning images!  Want to see all the “juicy” details?  Head […]

I’ve got my blogging groove back.  Feeling rejuvenated and re-inspired after one of the most hectic Decembers I can recall!  I’ve been dying to share this painterly project designed exclusively for the readers of Southern Weddings Magazine.  I worked with Nicole and the SW Team to create a custom suite of painted paperie fit to inspire any southern detail loving couple… here an understated color palette mixed with gilded embellishments and detailed paintings reveals a sweet and soft collection of paper moments. Of course I was thrilled to see a few of our pieces on the pages of this “Southern […]

A few weeks ago I hopped a plane to Chapel Hill, North Carolina to celebrate with friends.  Southern Weddings is a print magazine with loads of style and even more heart.  We’re seen twice in their 5th anniversary issue, what an honor!! The Southern Weddings ladies asked us to create a painted backdrop, much like the one seen in the new issue.  We were happy to put brush to canvas for such a momentous occasion! Love never fails…  I’m not much of a in-front-of-camera type of gal but here I am with my two page spread.  To my left is […]

A while back the ladies at Southern Weddings got in touch with a request.  Their invitation was for me to design 4 distinctly southern stationery suites.  Well how fun, I thought!  Nothing inspires romance quite like the thought of a ride on a tree swing or sitting in a garden full of blooming pretties – all of which are moments that come to my mind when I think of the south.  So I went to work and centered my creations around four iconic concepts: Tree Swings, Overflowing Gardens and Seersucker.  Come and sit a spell to see where I landed… […]
