By now you know I love participating in styled shoots (with professionals I love to work with, of course). Lane' at Something Borrowed contacted me about providing paper goods for an "elegant garden" styled shoot– she was going for an elegant, timeless and classic look with more neutral/earthy colors (navy, cream, some gold and brown). I had recently been researching vintage botanical prints for a client, and thought that would be a fun way to incorporate some color but still keeping the overall feel neutral by adding a wood engraved overlay.

In honor of this great day in Oregon, I wanted to share our dear friends wedding invitations from a few summers ago. When the grooms told me the plan to incorporate inspiration from their favorite movie, Amélie, into their wedding, a lovely image popped into my head– the garden gnome!! The invitation was an accordion fold complete with a gnome silhouette and their amazing engagement photos (taken by Brandon Witzel), and closed between two wood engraved coasters (how fun when the invitation can be used by guests?!) The invitation set, bound in blue satin ribbon, sat upon a bed of wood excelsior, and was enclosed and shipped in a square box.
Not only did I have the great honor of designing their wedding invitations, but was also a participant in the ceremony.
It was a gorgeous August day under beautiful trees in a secluded hazelnut orchard in Aurora, Oregon. The ceremony was so well-written, meaningful, and full of love. This lovely, fun bunch of people below were so happy to participate in the wedding of two incredible people! Thanks W+M for inviting John and I play such an important role in your amazing wedding.
A few months ago, Mandi from Champagne Wedding Coordination asked if I would contribute to the table design they were putting together for the next issue of Portland Bride & Groom magazine. The theme was "Upcycled Brew" and we immediately agreed on what I would contribute– wood goods engraved on a beautiful dark brown walnut wood! I was so happy with the results and think they photographed so nicely with the bright colors going on in the rest of the tablescape. Here's just a couple quick shots of the spread!
Last year I was contacted by a lovely gal named Kate who was creating a new, high-end wedding inspiration website called H&H Weddings (H&H stands for Hers & Hers, and His & His). Since I am all about LOVE is LOVE, equality, who am I to judge who you love, and all that goodness, I said, "Sign me up!" She invited me to take part in an inspiration shoot taking place in New York, shot by the amazing Jen Huang. Kate had some great ideas for the suite involving trees and wood, but really didn't set any boundaries (which you know I looooove), so I came up with the suite shown below. The coaster and invitation were engraved on wood... mmmm!
In today's feature, they say: "Lindsay of Paper Bloom Studio is one of those fabulous people that makes you want to get married, just so she can create something amazing for you. We had the pleasure of working with her on one of our inspiration shoots and she could not have been more wonderful! We asked her to tell us a bit about what she does and why she does it."

Oh, where do I begin with these two? From our first meeting I just knew this wedding would be killer. They said all the right things to make me swoon: Hotel de Luxe, art deco, black + white + red color palette, custom logo, and my all-time favorite– clear acrylic! I had such a good time working with them and their awesome wedding coordinator, Mandi from Champagne. Here are a few shots of their invitation (by Paul Rich) and other goodies by their photographer Craig Mitchelldyer. See more from Craig here, and Champagne's blog post with even more photos.
