Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

I’m back today with more from our editorial in the latest Destination I Do Magazine!  Have a look here and here to get caught up… Initially inspired by the Segoe Lily, the stationery took on a decidedly more muted palette, so pops of aqua and red could be the standouts when they occurred. The studio shot of the suit shows of the various textured stocks and painting techniques used.  Sheer, shimmery gold, creamy whites and aqua and peach watercolor tones tell the stationery story here… The light that day changed faster than we could imagine.  From washed out sunlight at […]

Amidst the redrock on a sunny yet cool day, we gathered.   At the start,  the sun was high in the sky and felt welcoming as the wind swept through the wide valley.  We were at home with rockface all around…at home in our arid surroundings all charged with energy, warm light and possibilities….

How fitting that Jenna and Zachary’s  entire celebration made the front page of Style Me Pretty?  Fitting and deserving.  Jenna’s timeless style and spirited flavor caught everyone’s attention; all playing second place to their heartwarming love story. Jenna and Zachary met and married in the same place…talk about meaningful.  Read on. Richly colored handmade papers were sculpted […]

If you’ve read my blog for more than a month, you likely know my affinity for the Southwest.   Affinity maybe doesn’t describe it best since I did recently entice friends and family to a southwest locale for our renewal celebration.  Read more on that here.  Anyway, when Project Wedding reached out to have me create stationery pieces for their latest inspiration shoot, the words organic and southwest were all I had to hear.  I was hooked. Laid back, authentic, richly textured are all words to describe this wedding inspiration.  The painted paper pieces began with pencil sketches to impart a […]
