Invitation du Jour

When I saw these invi­ta­tions from Jennifer & Manny’s wed­ding on Snippet & Ink the other day, I instantly loved them. The liner pat­tern is gor­geous. And all the ele­ments com­bined — pat­tern, color palette, children’s book illus­tra­tions, and cal­lig­ra­phy by Betsy Dunlap — amounts to such a light-hearted, whim­si­cal look and feel. phở­tos by Erik Eckroth

I just wrote a blog post over at design­work­life about the whole bal­loons as props trend. I was def­i­nitely feel­ing like it’s on the verge of being over­done, but then I saw this engage­ment shoot by Erin Hearts Court, and got sucked back in. I think it has some­thing to do with the com­bi­na­tion of lots of bright colors […]

Voltron of Awesomeness

I always get extremely excited when I see an unread blog post from Voltron of Awesomeness (aka Jeff Newsom), because I know that what­ever wed­ding or engage­ment he shot most recently will undoubt­edly be vibrant, cre­ative and gor­geous. See for your­self right here.

Thinking About Pinwheels

I can’t see a Pinwheel with­out think­ing of that show on Nickelodeon and singing the theme song in my head. Anyone else remem­ber it? It was one of my favorites when I was lit­tle. That is, how­ever, beside the point. The idea of pin­wheels as wed­ding décor though, is a bit more rel­e­vant — and so much fun. The idea […]

Fun Freebies

Some day when I actu­ally have some free time I would love to make some print­a­bles avail­able for down­load. Not sure when that will hap­pen though, so in the mean­time you should check out these two: Gettin’ Hitched Door Hanger by Rachel of Benign Objects (who is off get­ting mar­ried her­self, by the way) Country Chic Floral Thank You […]

Love & Marriage

Let’s get seri­ous for a minute. When it comes to wed­dings, we often get caught up in col­ors and fab­rics and details and things, because let’s face it, it’s pretty fun to focus on them. But when it really comes down to it, a wed­ding is, of course, about com­mit­ment and rela­tion­ships and love and friends and […]

Invitation du Jour

Hello, hello. Long time no talk, yet again. I have about 25 posts that are par­tially drafted (slight exag­ger­a­tion) and I hope to get up over the next few days, so here goes. First up is an invi­ta­tion I meant to post about a week and a half ago. The print­ing for invi­ta­tion was designed and printed by Austin Petito (who […]

Invitation du Jour

I love the sleek mod­ern feel of this invi­ta­tion by Aaron Eiland. The intri­cate heart pat­tern reminds me of the work of the amaz­ing Marian Bantjes, and I love the heavy use of black. Definitely some­thing you don’t see too often.

Holy Gorgeousness

On top of the fact that’s new black label line is (as expected) over-the-top amaz­ing, the model they worked with is absolutely stunning.
