Megan + Nick are definitely one if my all-time favorite couples, it was so fun to design and create their invitation suite with them! I am so happy to see their invitation suite featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper today. Check out the entire post here and more photos of their modern calligraphy letterpress invitation suite here.
I can’t tell you how much I love this styled shoot from Provence designed and styled by the amazingly talented duo of Pearl & Sheena from Pearl & Godiva featuring my calligraphy paper goods.
The lighting is lovely & soft and the details are romantic & thoughtful. The photography by Feather & Stone is incredible; I just love every little detail! This shoot was also featured on Once Wed (so exciting!). See the entire shoot here.
The calligraphy details I created were lettered in a modern calligraphy style onto soft, luxe, cotton paper with a deckled edge. The modern calligraphy was inked in dark sepia ink. The invitation set features a rough kraft paper with the soft, creamy cotton paper. The wine label with the gusts name calligraphed was dipped in lavender watercolor ink to add a bit of color.

It’s always fun to see your work in print, especially when the shoot is this 0ver-the-top lovely! I was recently able to be part of a tabletop styled shoot, styled by Steve Moore of Sinclair & Moore Events for Seattle Met Bride & Groom Magazine. Steve designed a table with a French Market theme (a fresh, take on French Market… which doesn’t always happen). The table featured a fresh take on toile (with a lovely toil cake by Tallant House), simple (loved how un-fluffy the tea towel look is!). French linens and day of stationery by me, la Happy, including wood menus (Yes! REAL wood) and custom navy tags with guests names calligraphed in white ink then tied around French baguettes. …and the chandeliers? Yes, they are super fabulous!
The real wood menus were stamped with a custom menu stamp… such a fabulous way to bring a clean, organic feel to your table! I love how clean and simple the table looks. It doesn’t feel fussy or over done, it’s vintage perfection! It was such a pleasure to work on this shoot. I always love trying new ideas. Someone needs to incorporate some navy with white details into their wedding STAT – it is just so beautiful!
