Denise and Justin were married on a gorgeous October day at the Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach. Their wedding was the perfect mixture of sophistication, style and personal touches. Guests were invited to the wedding with ecru letterpress invitations with chocolate brown and champagne accents, including an illustrated map of Clearwater Beach for guests’ convenience. The groom, a musician, named their tables after their favorite bands and musicians. So it’s only natural that he got up and performed with the band at the reception. How fun is that?!?

Lauren & Andrew ~ 05.08.10 ~ Tampa, FL

November 19, 2010

Working with a couple like Lauren and Andrew embody the reasons I love what I do, and inspire me to improve. Their rare combination of graciousness, sophistication and style resulted in a fun, successful collaboration. Lauren came to us for their save the date announcements and continued with their elegant invitations and stylish day-of paper pieces, all of which maintained a gorgeous color and design combination of fairway green, champagne and ivory. Elegant yet coordinated. A girl after my own heart.

It’s hard to choose just one favorite detail of this wedding. First: I absolutely adored working with Katherine and her family for the second time — view Katherine’s sister Kristen’s wedding in Nov. 2009 here — they are creative, think-outside-the-box folks. We spent many afternoons kicking around fun ideas in my studio or having “what if…?” conversations via email. Second: the venue selection, color scheme, decor and lighting are true masterpieces of creativity and execution. Third: the invitations and stationery truly set the tone for the day, and how clever are the mini-canvas escort cards?

I developed an even deeper appreciation for event planners, decor, lighting and photography folks during the setup of this wedding — yes, I hung out at the museum for most of the day to witness firsthand the transformation, an astounding turnaround of just 2 hours because the museum doesn’t close early for private events. But that experience will be the subject of another blog post entirely.

One of the things we love most about working on weddings is getting to know our clients and their families. We had such a great time collaborating with Dana and her parents on custom invitations and stationery for her April 2010 wedding at the Sandpearl Resort. The wedding, impeccably coordinated by Sandy Rule Events and beautifully photographed by Phillip Lloyd, was stylish, sophisticated and filled with laughter and love. We wish the very best to Dana and Chris on their new life together!
