Been a little quiet over here as I work on refreshing the semi custom collection for 2019 brides. A whole pile of paper and test prints is filling my studio. This suite with a venue drawing has been a favorite ever since I began offering them so it’s just getting some minor updates. #seattlebride #seattle #seattlewedding #calligrapher #weddingcalligrapher #fineartwedding #engaged #risingtidesociety #pointedpen #pointedpencalligraphy #wedding #weddinginvitation #fineart #bride #moderncalligraphy #flourishforum #pursuepretty #semicustom #elowahsuite

Lately my favorite projects have been the accompanying paper to an invite suite - bridal showers and rehearsal dinners and luncheons. This custom invite played off of the formal script and floral crest of the couple’s main invitation and was printed on a soft blush cotton paper for effect. #rehearsaldinnerinvitation #rehearsaldinner #chicagobride #midwestbride #chicagowedding seattlebride #seattle #seattlewedding #calligrapher #weddingcalligrapher #fineartwedding #engaged #risingtidesociety #pointedpen #pointedpencalligraphy #wedding #weddinginvitation #fineart #bride #moderncalligraphy #flourishforum #pursuepretty

Adding vellum to invitation suites is like adding a soft blur to the camera. It reminds me of the hazy glow they used to add to female movie star’s faces in romantic scenes. This suite was recently featured on @thewhitewren, captured by @ashleyraephotography at the #basicallybrandyworkshops with @cococollectiveweddings #seattlebride #seattle #seattlewedding #calligrapher #weddingcalligrapher #fineartwedding #engaged #risingtidesociety #pointedpen #pointedpencalligraphy #wedding #weddinginvitation #fineart #bride #moderncalligraphy #flourishforum #pursuepretty

This Monday has me feeling like Winnie the Pooh - hungry for some midday sweets and like I have a bit of fluff in my ear. For some reason there’s no middle ground on Monday’s. They’re either maddeningly busy or completely discombobulating. Last sneak peek at this shoot from: @savanphotography | Planner: @likethedazzling

These velvet vow books went all the way out to beautiful Smith Rock near Bend, Oregon for a vow renewal. There’s nothing better than knowing that these get to contain a couple’s promises to each other for a lifetime. Photo by the wonderful @theganeys with other vendors including: @lindsayhelzer

This #realbride’s suite gives me all the feels: letterpress monogram on a sage handmade envelope, letterpress and foil main invitation on fluffy handmade sheets, and a printed olive botanical on vellum.

Thinking about how many brides have opted to go for a formal script this year and how thrilled that makes me. It’s a crowd pleaser and adds such a feeling of luxury and formality to your invitations. This lovely styled shoot from: @savanphotography | Planner: @likethedazzling

Some days I’m so busy I have no time to be creative and some days my mind is so full of ideas, I have no time to be busy. Constantly hunting for balance in this work. How do you juggle it? Photography - @ivory.and.oak
