Taylor + Peter at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards

Knowing the sweet bride, we were already excited about this particular wedding, but when we heard her location was Pippin Hill Farm, our enthusiasm pretty much doubled. The farm & vineyard is set in the Virginia countryside.

The bride really wanted to incorporate the landscape so we designed a custom watercolor that showed the Pippin Hill Barn and scenery + included a touch of hydrangeas and greenery that would be incorporated in the wedding. We used watercolor finish paper and backed the save the date with a gray woodgrain cardstock. Hope you enjoy all these dreamy pictures by Laura Gordon

The whole wedding suite featured various textured papers and soft colors. We also took some of the illustrations from the invitation and carried them through on the day of materials. Napkins, programs, and welcome bags. Lots of beautiful items for a beautiful bride.

Every single item you created for the wedding was absolute perfection. I wasn't the best at articulating my vision the first few tries, and despite my shortcomings, you nailed it. All of it. And then some. 
Your creations helped direct and reinforce the feel  and theme of our engagement and wedding weekend. I can't tell you the number of  people telling me who told me everything you created was so me. That is a true testament to y'all. You all are an absolute delight and it was a pleasure working with you.

The Nashville Symphony Fashion Show with Zac Posen

Typically we're both running around town in jeans, flip flops, and no makeup. Not the most fashionable gals in town, but despite that we do appreciate fashion and love looking to it for inspiration. So when The Nashville Symphony Fashion Show approached us to help with this years event along with You're Invited, we felt pretty fancy. Zac Posen was this years featured designer so we went right to work playing around with his designs. We created an embroidered watercolor floral design based around on of the gorgeous fabrics. It became the visual inspiration for the whole event! The patrons party, the bar, the programs, the paper flower wall (wowza), signage, it was all amazing!

Jimmy Choo Spring party

"whipped into a blur by wings beating too fast to follow"… the mighty hummingbird became the centerpiece of our inspiration and design. We were set with the task of creating a save-the-date + invitation for a special Jimmy Choo event, benefiting the Nashville Symphony. The Spring collection included jewel tones, Iris' (fitting, as it's our the state flower), and of course, small, but mighty hummingbirds.

We watercolored the florals and let them show through around the address by using a vellum envelope on the Save the Date. Then on the main invitation we really tried to make it feel layered and ultra luxurious. Gorgeous calligraphy with lots of flourish and a die-cut wrap that slid off to reveal the metallic silver foil. All the girly details we could think of for a shoe party inside the most beautiful closet you've ever seen. Yes, the closet. One of a kind indeed!

Favorite detail was this delicate hummingbird carrying the stamp…

We got to be involved at every step of this party so we also created the cocktail napkins and take away bags. Inside were hand painted chocolates by local co., Olive & Sinclair. They were amazing and the color coordination was spot on. Details, details.

Tennessee Whiskey tasting

We created a pretty fab "Tennessee" invitation last year for the Economic Department so when they called us again this year for a new one we had to put on our thinking caps. The party centered around a whiskey tasting so we created this watercolor glass and tri-star ball of ice getting poured on. The invitation printed on thick card stock with a fun backer design and calligraphy by Val Cole.
