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.

One of my most memorable projects was this hot pink and gold glitter die cut pop-up Bat Mitzvah invitation. When I first met my 12-year old client, she was wearing a bright pink top and had a soft dusting of glitter over her cheeks. She described her ideal invitation for this big event– her guests would open the envelope, her name would pop out and glitter to burst all over them! Her parents, on the other hand, preferred something a bit more refined and classic, all the while staying true to Reeve's bubbly and *sparkling* personality. We used gold glitter paper for the envelope liners and gold glitter ribbon to tie around the inserts, and embossed her name on the front in gold glitter. Her name popped up just like she wanted, and we of course used her favorite color– hot pink. A huge thanks to Anders Printing for printing and die cutting the piece, Bullfrog Graphics for laser cutting the name, and Gather Event Planning for sending their lovely client my way!

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!
