FONT FRIDAY - LETTUCE


FRIENDS! Guess what today is? It's my big 30th birthday! I went back and forth about having a big celebration - I mean, there's so much to celebrate after everything that has happened this past year, but truth be told, I just want to lay low with my two favorite men (and Miss Juliet!). And eat cake. And buy fonts.

I've seen Lettuce floating around on my Pinterest feed for a while and it always makes me stop in my tracks. As much as I love clean, classic font choices, I also really love the trendier and more modern calligraphy styles. Lettuce is playful, feminine, and easy-to-read (a big deal for me!). I finally caved and purchased this gem a few days ago. I cannot wait to use it on a few invitations for sweet 2017 couples! You can grab Lettuce here for $15. You're welcome, and happy birthday!

Heirloom Highlight - Valentine Suite Featured in Styled Shoot on Aisle Perfect

Happy Halloween! I'm spending the day with my little boy, pretending he is old enough to trick-of-treat. Who am I kidding, the neighbors know a baby can't eat chocolate and that it's all for me! However, Richie sure does look sweet in his costume!

Since I personally prefer to celebrate the sweet side of Halloween, I wanted to share this beautifully edible editorial featuring the Sincerely, Jackie Valentine calligraphy invitation. I love the soft lavenders paired with deeper wine colors - any shoot that highlights a lavender macaroon on it is A-OK in my book.

Tatiana, of White Elephant Events, is a true style gem. She's got such a timeless, yet eclectic style, and I love collaborating with her. The inspiration behind this shoot was a "modern Marie Antoinette" (um, yes! amazing!) and it was captured by Christina Lilly.

Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot, which was also featured on Aisle Perfect.

FONT FRIDAY - FERUCI

It may be the end of yet another month (WHAT?! WHERE DID YOU GO, OCTOBER?!) but it's nowhere near the end of my font addiction, ahem, problem, ahem, obsession, ahem, I'm making this worse aren't I?

While we all mourn the passing of time, let's join together in adoration of today's Font Friday selection, Feruci. How can a font be so perfectly balanced? It's (dare I say it!) better than PSL! The combination of a serif font with flourishes is something I've been a very big fan of for a long, long time. I love how the flourishes take a fairly straight-forward font and turn it into something visually very interesting. You know what else is interesting? That Feruci is only $12 on Creative Market.

Feruci is exactly the type of font that the grooms I meet with love. It's not super feminine, but it's also not so masculine that a bride wouldn't want it for her wedding invitations. It's pretty much the perfect in-between for modern, classic couples.

Sigh. Let's all scroll through these beautiful images of Feruci together...

HEIRLOOM HIGHLIGHT - HAVEN SUITE FEATURED ON THE PERFECT PALETTE

Styled shoots are one of my absolute favorite creative outlets, and any time Leah, of Color Pop Events, and Juli of Julie Vaughn Designs are involved, I KNOW it's going to be amazing! Leah is best known for her ability to bring together bright, colorful elements with a chic, classic style and Juli creates the most beautiful, whimsical floral arrangements. Together, they blow my mind on the regular, and this particular shoot is no different. I love how unique this shoot is, with it's blend of soft blues, blue-greens, and pops of bright pinks, oranges, reds, and copper. Leah brought together the A-Team, which included Sincerely, Jackie's Haven invitation. The Flutter invitation is part of the Calligraphy Collection and showcases modern watercolor calligraphy by Everly Calligraphy. This shoot was featured on The Perfect Palette. You can see the full feature here, and scroll below for some of my personal favorite photos along with the full contributor list.

FONT FRIDAY - INDIGO BLUE


At this point we all know that I (not so) secretly love things that aren't at all feminine. My heart skips a beat for the heavier serif fonts, thin sans serif fonts, and, recently, scribbly-scratchy calligraphy inspired fonts. Indigo Blue caught my eye recently and I'm DYING to use it. I love that it's called a "passionate script", because it sure makes me excited! You know what makes me even more excited? It's only $15! Yes, you read that right. FIFTEEN dollars! You can purchase Indigo Blue over on Creative Market. Go on, I know you want to!

Heirloom Highlight - Maura & Steve's Navy Letterpress Invitations - Featured in The Knot New York


It's been exactly one year and one day since Maura and Steve tied the knot! Happy anniversary you two!

Maura was one of my favorite brides in 2015 (and her mother was by far my favorite mother-of-the-bride!) - she has timeless taste and brought together the A team when it came to her vendors. Her wedding was located at the Bridgeview Yacht Club on Long Island, New York.  Maura worked with one of my dearest friends, Jainé (of Brklyn View Photography), as her photographer, and Bridget (of Violet and Verde) as her florist. They're two of the most talented ladies I know! Jainé took the loveliest photos of Maura and Steve's October wedding, which was full of deep hues and bright pops of color.

I had the pleasure of creating all of Maura's wedding stationery, including her Save the Date cards, letterpress invitations, programs, menu cards, bar signs, programs and escort cards. For her invitations, she chose a crisp white cotton paper paired with deep navy blue letterpress, and gold foil accents. I absolutely adore her custom monogram and crest, which we used throughout the rest of her wedding stationery. The flowers in the crest were created by hand to bring in the floral elements from her bouquet - what a perfect detail! For the day-of items, we digitally printed items in coordinating shades of white, navy, and pops of pink - with a few gold elements (like those navy and gold menu cards!).

There was't a single detail overlooked during Maura and Steve's big day, and I am so honored to have been a part of it. Their wedding has since been featured on Style Me Pretty as well as printed in The Knot magazine! It was my first print feature and I am SO beyond excited that it was for one of my favorite couples of all time!

Here are a few highlights of their nautical pink & navy wedding day, all photos from Brklyn View Photography:



Happy anniversary again, Maura and Steve!!
