A Low Country Wedding

These lovely invi­ta­tions were designed by Christine Wisnieski, a tal­ented Cleveland-based designer who I’ve also fea­tured on design work life today. According to Christine, the cou­ple was look­ing for an invi­ta­tion suite that was light-hearted easy to use. The result­ing design was inspired by South Carolina’s low-country style, and man­i­fested itself in an accor­dion folded card […]

Evan + Bailey: Part 3

And now I present the final install­ment of Evan and Bailey’s beau­ti­ful wed­ding! It’s plain to see that a good time was had by all. But these posts have really just scratched the sur­face of this wed­ding, so be sure to check out the Brighten Photography blog for much much more (parts one, two, three). Love this […]

Evan + Bailey: Part 2

Fun fact: Evan and Bailey’s wed­ding was doc­u­mented by Brighten Photography, a team that is actu­ally related to the cou­ple. How spe­cial it must have been to have such an impor­tant day cap­tured on film by the peo­ple clos­est to them. (Sidenote: they have quite the tagline— “wed­dings full of awe­some.” Love it.) My favorite part about […]

Evan + Bailey: Part 1

I’m so excited to start off this week by shar­ing another real wed­ding with you today. If there’s one thing I can tell from the upcom­ing phở­tos, Evan and Bailey’s Midwest, barn wed­ding sure looks like it was a whole lot of fun. Before we get to that though, let’s take a look at the invi­ta­tions; which were […]

Invitation du Jour: Osamu Akatsu

I saw these invi­ta­tions on Beast Pieces awhile ago, but was reminded of them again via eight hour day just recently. I never got to post about them back then, but upon see­ing them again I got just as excited as I had the first time — I love the sim­ple yet ele­gant color palette and all of the playful […]

Etsy Finds: Valentine’s Day Treats

Though I haven’t ven­tured into pur­chas­ing cloth­ing via etsy, I have pur­chased baked goods and other edi­ble items. There are so many deli­cious home­made treats to be found, and that espe­cially goes for hol­i­days such as Valentine’s Day. Here are a few treats that I think look espe­cially deli­cious, and would make great gifts for kids, friends or […]
