"Super glam, super clean. Gold, mint and blush." Yes, please! Alex at Luxe Event Productions was speaking my language when he explained the overall concept for a Spring styled shoot taking place at Union/Pine. I had been in love with that color palette and had some gorgeous papers in the perfect shades that I knew would photograph really well. I love so many things about styled shoots but my favorite is that I get to try new things and test out interesting layouts and concepts that could potentially work for a future couple. Check out the full the feature on Fab You Bliss!

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.

I can't tell you how much I love the paper goods for this wedding. Annie (the bride) had so many great ideas and a perfect vision for what she wanted, and because of that I got to work with Jenna from Mon Voir who did all the amazing calligraphy, and Kevin of Advantage Letterpress who printed them all. HUGE thanks to Jennifer from Perfect Planning, and of course Lacie Hansen for providing me with these gorgeous images!! And to Annie for letting me share them :) You can see more from their wedding in the latest issue of Portland Bride & Groom Magazine.
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.
This shoot with Petalos and Erich McVey was definitely one of my favorites (wait, don't I say that about every shoot? Maybe it's true– I work with some amazing people around here!) Stephanie from Petalos had a vision: soft pastels, watercolor details, natural surroundings, and two gorgeous brides. I loved helping bring it all to life. Here's the link to our feature on Style Me Pretty, and the lovely list of professionals involved is below.

I'm so excited to share images (thanks to Jennifer Fujikawa Photography) from a gorgeous Winter shoot I created paper goods for that was featured on Green Wedding Shoes. I've always loved kraft paper, and wanted to use it here but dress it up a little, so it didn't feel too rustic. Pairing it with white and soft gray paper, and a nice hand written font and wreath graphic felt like the way to achieve that. Thanks to Shauna from J29 Events for inviting me to take part! Some of my favorite shots are below and of course you'll want to see all the photos here: http://greenweddingshoes.com/timeless-winter-wedding-inspiration/

So, my sister was married in October. Did ya hear?! I know, I know, I think I've talked about it a million times. It was such a fun and beautiful event, and we were all dyyyying to see the photos. Brittany Lauren Photography did NOT disappoint– that girl has some CRAZY talent! It was so exciting to see the photos, but then about ten times more amazing to hear shortly after that the photos were picked up by one of our favorite wedding blogs, Style Me Pretty! Check out the feature here. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite shots, and of course the list of all the fabulous people involved in this 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!
One of my favorite blogs in the world is Oh So Beautiful Paper. It is the best place to see the latest and greatest in the paper goods world, and I'm constantly swooning over each post. I was lucky enough to be featured on there last year, and this week my submission of my sister's wedding invitations was also picked up! This was my first invitation suite using foil, and you should all know by now that I *love* foil. It's just so fun and adds a nice, simple touch. Check out the feature here! And many thanks to Paul Rich Studio for shooting the suite for me– it's another lovely addition to the gallery on my website. He has done a perfect job capturing the details of my work in photos, and I'm so grateful!
