taylor + mark's copper and chocolate fall wedding invitation

This wedding suite made me want to pull out cozy wool blankets and the spiked-apple cider right away! Taylor unabashedly loves orange which was a no-brainer to use for her fall wedding, and a not-so-secret tribute to her beloved Texas Longhorns. We ran with the  idea of using lots of copper, fall florals and romantic details for this black tie wedding.First impressions are important! The first thing guests would see when they opened the interior envelope was lined with a fall floral displaying sophisticated hues orange, wine, plum and forest green. True story: another client saw a sample of this...

nina & david's olive, gold, cream & blush summer wedding invitations

In order to honor the setting and season, a romantic outdoor summer wedding at the historic Cairnwood Estate near Philadelphia, we chose olive, blush and gold for the color palette with subtle visuals of olive branches. We veered away from tradition by repeating the square shape and mixing minimalist fonts with romantic scripts.  Plus, square invitations are an effortless way to differentiate your invitation from the rest of your guests' mail. The construction concept of the invitation started with...

That time I wrote a book...

I wrote a book! This is such a strange and exciting post for me to write. In October of last year, I was hanging out at my husband’s temporary work apartment in Colorado trying to entertain our just-turned 1-year-old when I received a message from a publisher asking if I was interested in writing and illustrating a how-to book on metallic notes.
