Paper Crush: Megan & Mike’s Stitched Save the Dates

{ photo credit and save the date design courtesey of coral pheasant stationery + design } Megan and Mike were such fun clients and designing their Kate Spade inspired fete was a dream come true for me! When Megan mentioned that she wanted to use images from their nautical engagement session with the effervescent Bruce Plotkin for her save the date, I knew we had to do something different. She loves paper and has an open mind for design, so…

In their pursuit for wedding decor, they amassed an impressive collection of unique milk glass pieces that Elisabeth from BLUSH arranged peonies…

On Royal Street: French Inspired Photoshoot in New Orleans | Part III

For the last post of 2010 I thought we’d end on where our adventures began this year with the final installment from our New Orleans Shoot! You can see the beginning of our shoot here, and the second feature here. There were so many beautiful and gorgeous details — from the dramatic linen draping on the table, pinned with fabric, paper, and real flowers– to the amazing desserts designed by Sucre. I especially love the escort card display on someone’s…

A purple, chocolate and gold invitation suite by Lilah Paper

I’m so excited to be able to share our invitations with you!! As many of you know, the first item I purchased for our wedding was my shoes. They’ve been my muse for the entire event and have guided me toward the most amazing gown, linens, and paper. When I set out to have our invitations designed I knew of only one designer who would be able to take my shoes and make an invitation out of them! Paper is…

A Wedding Story: Matt & Kim in Westport, Connecticut

Matt and Kim were married on May 30th, 2009 at 2:30 in the afternoon at the Assumption Church in Westport, Connecticut.

At our initial meeting I knew we’d be a good match — they wanted a preppy, tailored, and nautical wedding in blue and yellow with pops of red. The day began…

In Love: Calligraphy

I love calligraphy. There is no denying that when you receive an invitation hand addressed by one of these artists, you feel so special! Having your wedding invitations hand calligraphed may seem like an antiquated tradition that you don’t need to do (printing envelopes on the computer is so easy, right?). Well, it is an old tradition, but one you shouldn’t skip if you can afford. A wedding invitation isn’t just any old invitation to a party: it is something…

A Bit of Vintage: Our Save the Dates

It is an exciting weekend for this event planner — our save the dates went into the mail! I wanted to share them with you as they were designed and crafted by yours truly. I went back and forth several times with the idea of creating them myself. I certainly have the means and tools to do so, but as any artist knows, it isn’t easy to take on your own projects. I searched endlessly for an easy way out…
