Wedding Stationery

Have you ever kept a secret? Like a REALLY big secret? A secret that you were bursting at the seams to share. One so big that it could change the course of your life. Like a purple unicorn secret. That’s the kind of secret Kim & West held onto before their wedding. All their guests knew was that they were to be in Flagstaff on the day of the wedding, and they would all be transported by bus to a secret location. Say what?! They kept their wedding location a secret from their friends and family up until their wedding day. That’s like celebrity wedding status!! I couldn’t have been more pumped to create their wedding in the woods letterpress stationery for such a special couple with a fun secret. The pre-wedding stationery included the invitation, response card and extra insert, all using my own painting and hand writing!   … Read More

Rustic Romantic Wedding

Wood and florals and pastels, oh my! This styled shoot featuring our rustic romantic wedding stationery still has us in awe. The Outstanding Occasions team transformed the natural beauty of El Chorro into this romantic yet modern wonderland for the annual “I DO Experience.” We always do a little happy dance when we find out we get to work with some of our favorite local vendors on such a whimsical day. This entire stationery set focused on the fusion of nature and modern elements. Using natural hues and peach accents, the stationery perfectly complimented the amazing floral creations from Petal Pusher. Throughout the set, we utilized cut-outs for the main verbiage and alternated paper colors for each unique piece. We wanted to combine that rustic and romantic feel with a modern twist. Keep reading for the surprise cut-out! We loved experimenting with pastel water colors for the escort cards! Doesn’t the … Read More

Edgy Masculine Wedding Stationery | Scottsdale, Ariz.

Edgy Masculine Wedding

Anyone that knows me knows that I live for creating out-of-the-box stationery to really brand a wedding day. Anytime I get to channel my inner edge is always a plus. When the uber creative girls from Some Like It Classic came to me with the idea for an edgy, masculine wedding at the Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North, I was all hands on deck. The inspiration came from the natural Arizona desert color palette mixed with soft florals and greenery. Isn’t it so easy to forget the beauty of our backyard?! Deep green hues mixed with black, tan and wood accents stole the show for this edgy, masculine wedding stationery. I loved playing off of the masculine style while weaving in romantic touches. How cool are these bride and groom escort card tags made of leather that’s been hand-embossed with the titles?! (Beware: requires lots of hammering.) When creating wedding stationery, … Read More

Travel Inspired Wedding Stationery

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Maybe the more important question is, who would you go with? Isn’t that what love is all about? True love, the kind where you still get butterflies after 50 years and they can make you heart burst like a starburst no matter how mad you are, is the kind that we all look for. It’s all about finding the person that will keep you on the dance floor, and travel through life with you. For Shaun & Ciana’s Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North wedding, they wanted to express their love for each other and their desire to travel through life together. Their travel inspired wedding stationery was one for the books, or well, the maps!  If you look close enough at the envelope for their invitations, you can see the sketch of the globe. The map inspired … Read More

Floral Lavender Inspired Wedding Stationery | Phoenix, Ariz.

Floral Lavender Wedding Stationery

For Westin & Kirsten’s floral lavender inspired wedding stationery, I loved creating pieces with patterns and texture. This set included escort card display “tags,” menus and table numbers. How gorgeous is their escort card display? These escort tags were the perfect compliment to the floral buckets courtesy of Sarah’s Garden. The tags allowed guests to find their table number without over crowding the display. I also used the dotted edged pattern on both the tags and the menus.  For the menus, I changed up the pattern using a circle instead of a hexagon, but carried over the dotted pattern and similar fonts. The size of the menus also allowed them to really make a statement on the tables, almost resembling glamorous placemats. One of my favorite materials to work with is copper. I love the way you can stamp copper into exactly what you want, while keeping the character of … Read More

Vibrant Desert Floral Wedding Stationery | Phoenix, Ariz.

Geometric Wedding Stationery

A few weeks ago, this vibrant desert floral wedding stationery from our style shoot with the amazing Konsider It Done event planning team was featured on 100 Layer Cake! So fun right?! Just wait until you see the cake… As part of a drop-dead-gorgeous (I’m dead serious) styled shoot at Phoenix, Arizona’s newest desert inspired wedding venue, The Paseo, I got to create the stationery set inspired by the radiant florals found in the Arizona desert. For the escort cards, I painted a bright floral arrangement on diamond shaped cards to perfectly wedge into the champagne glasses. Now that’s a way to claim your seat! I used the same floral design paired with a fuscia colored romantic font to bring shape to the menus. One of my favorite things to do when designing stationery pieces is to find the right balance of geometrics and soft lines. Doesn’t it scream, “I’m sophisticated … Read More
