right this second…

SO happy it’s Friday.  and a long weekend!!!  it’s been a doozy of a week.

being a fan of sneak peeks, I thought I’d give you another peek of our wedding invitations.  originally I’d planned on showing you our full invitation today, but I decided to wait until after the wedding.  it’s only 42 days away, so you won’t be waiting long.  {42 days, yikes!}  I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend, friends!!


vain & vapid summer 10

I’m in love with the Summer collection from Vain & Vapid, particularly the Ursa Major Dress.  the photos, the styling, the clothes… and how cool are those names, mostly named after constellations.  Julie, you’ve truly outdone yourself this time, such stunning work!

a succulent inspired wedding

a few weeks ago, I headed to Siesta Key, Florida for a wedding between two of my dearest friends.  they share my love of succulents and really wanted to incorporate them into their flowers and invitations.  the bride’s bouquet, by Bloom Garden Shop, included succulents, apricot roses, green amaranthus, star of bethlehem and my favorite, scabiosa pods.  isn’t it stunning?!

for their wedding stationery suite, we went with an illustration of a sempervivum succulent, blind embossed on the invitation and rsvp, then printed in a pale grey on their ceremony programs.  the results turned out beautiful, if I do say so myself, and tied in seamlessly with their flowers.  the design and letterpress was done by me and the gorgeous calligraphy was done by Mara from Neither Snow.
