ashley & garrett's gold, gray & blush letterpressed wedding invitations

Ashley and Garret were planning the most fabulous wedding and reception at Brazos Hall in the heart of downtown Austin. The turn-of-the century warehouse provided lots of inspiration for the invitations, as it's the quintessential example today's Austin, where old meets new with rustic wooden floors, exposed brick walls and sweeping rooftop views of the city.   For the invitation, we knew we wanted to capture the southern charm and incorporate modern aesthetics that make Austin unique. I started by hand-lettering their names to give the invitation a bold and playful look, and accented the rest of the text with...

lindy & chris's sun-bleached fiesta wedding celebration invitations

This was a fun one to create (and ultimately style and photograph with the lovely Bri Costello). Lindy and Chris are an adorable LA couple with endless creativity -- they write, produce, act, model... you name it. A few months after they became engaged, they had a private wedding ceremony on the beautiful beaches of Malibu. With the blessing of the couple, the parents planned one fabulous Tex-Mex fiesta to honor the newlyweds in their home state.  Since this invite was all about the celebration, we skipped the formalities and focused on an energetic invitation that would capture the couples'...

kelly + mike's copper foil and dusty blue letterpress wedding invitations

As Kelly and Michael were planning their wedding, they knew they wanted romantic Texas Hill Country affair with the slightest touch of rusticity. If Marie Antoinette were to tie the knot in Texas, this would be her invitation...    For the invitation, we selected Crane's 100% cotton double-ply Lettra paper to achieve the best impression for letterpress printing and foil stamping. We used a dusty blue gray as the primary color, inspired by the muted tones of desert succulents and the bridesmaids dresses -- so chic!  The rich copper foil balanced out the lightness of the blue and was a subtle wink to the...

megan & cody's glamorous gray + gold wedding invitations

Megan knew right off the bat she wanted charcoal gray and gold to be the main focus of her wedding invitations. I happily obliged, as it's one of my personal favorite neutral color combinations. The wedding itself would romantic and rustic, so we used  Debi Sementelli's flirty Cantoni script to reflect that theme.  We brightened up the suite with a rose patterned envelope liner printed on Neenah's Stardream paper.  For custom wedding invitations, contact Charm & Fig.

cameron's university of texas at austin graduation announcements

Lauren Covington announcement custom graduation kraft neenah paper school stardream texas

My little brother Cameron graduated from the University of Texas at Austin last weekend. He didn't want to pay and arm and a leg for formal announcements, so I was thrilled when he came to me for a custom, affordable solution. I used traditional wording, type and layout for the invitation but used the #10 size card to make it a little more interesting. I had these laser-printed on Crest solar white paper and backed by Stardream copper paper that comes pretty darn close to UT's signature burnt orange. For the mailing, I dug through my vintage stamp collection and pulled anything...
