I always did love a sunny palette done in a perfectly modern way…the table number buttons are pure genius, and check out that GORGEOUS ring pillow!  Look familiar?

What is your aesthetic? Classic & practical…with a bit of vintage & modern in the mix.

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? The space is not too fussy/stuffy and I believe has lots of inspiring details!

Favorite part of your studio? My big zebra print chair…I didn’t want a traditional office chair. It’s more like a mini couch I can relax & work on.

Where do you go for inspiration? Wedding and design blogs.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? Two things…my iPhone & my GPS…don’t know what I would do without them!

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? I would love to have a shared studio/storefront space with other creative folks someday…like a photographer & invitation designer.

Anything else we should know? I have a hard time throwing away paper…especially letterpress cards…I found a solution to display them on the fun carousel display from Pottery Barn. It sits on my meeting table so everyone can seem them!

Parcel Post for Brooklyn Bride [no. 09]

pp_headerpost No. 3 Beachy Mod

• in this lineup, bold graphics and bright colors of citrus, sunshine and ocean •

If you are having a wedding on the beach, a new direction would be to go modern with it! We have all seen the shells, seahorses and palm tress, but why not mix it up with some sunsets, seagulls, and ocean waves? I am really excited about the first picture below. We are working with a bride right now at Urbanic who is doing a Venice Beach themed wedding. The picture is the back of her RSVP postcard. One of our amazing designers Emily, put together a collage of actual photos taken in Venice to capture the look and feel of the location. She nailed it! You can brighten up any venue with garlands, place mats and favors. Instead of candy you could give guests something they can keep or use during their stay, like a beach journal. Below are two of my favorite invitations currently in the shop. As you can see, you can really go stylish and modern but still capture the essence of a coastal destination.

Save the Date: Michelle + Mark

I thought I would send ours over for you to see and maybe add to the Save the Date features.  Although, I have to say I’m a little nervous sending you pictures, since I know that you look at amazing wedding inspiration every day.  They are DIY with lots love.  Our amazing friends and family helped us form an assembly line one weekend at my house to put together all the pieces.  I used my favorite Cricut and Cuttlebug craft machines for cutting the numbers and embossing.  The paper products including the mini envelopes are from Paper Source.  They were hard work, but we’ve been getting lots of fun feedback from our guests and I’m hoping that it gets them excited for the wedding that is to come.  Now I just have to figure out what to do for our invitations!
