Styled Shoot - Southern Bride / Homestead Manor / Nashville Wedding

Summer in the South - Southern Bride Magazine: Sara Fried with Fete Nashville contacted us to work on a styled shoot with some talented local vendors. We teamed together to come up with this beautiful spread of inspiration for brides out there. Our part was the paper goods so we watercolored a bird pattern and ran from there. A pretty invite and a menu with a wax seal detail. The flowers and linens really tied it all together.

Brookside engagement party - Wales, Tennessee

We get to be included in some really fun events for clients, but rarely are we invited guests! This summer engagement party was the exception, because it was one of our friends! The festivities took place at the brides parent's country home, Brookside, in Wales, Tennessee. Beautiful rolling hills, a Greek revival home built in 1845, yummy southern fare, and rosé flowing. It was personal, and inviting, and lovely on every level. Straight out of the pages of Garden & Gun magazine. In fact, the home was in the magazine at one point… See here.

Needless to say it was a joy to be a guest and also a joy to create all the graphics for the evening. Florence & Cooper are a lucky couple and we look forward to continuing the celebration up until their big day!

30A Songwriters Festival

Each January, along scenic highway 30A in Florida, The Cultural Arts Alliance hosts a 3 day music festival along the gorgeous beaches of South Walton. This year Tenn Hens partnered with the festival to design all of their marketing materials for the festival. We created various items like web banners, ads, posters, and the program guide that's given to all attendees & sponsors. We were thrilled to work with their team and have already started on 2015s graphics.

graymar farm wedding - franklin, tennessee

IMG_6505
Tenn Hens just wrapped up a beautiful wedding that was held on a family farm. In fact this was daughter #2. We designed their eldest daughters "stitched-invite" suite a few years ago. The farm is in Franklin, TN and the setting is beyond picturesque.

We worked from start to finish on every detail of this big day with bride Margaret. She really wanted to use some different printing techniques so we blind-letterpressed a pattern and used an amber gold foil for the text. What was so fun was working with her from the start of the save the dates, to wedding sutie, to the "day of" paper goods like: matches, koozies, napkins, photo-booth signage, menus, hotel booklets, and welcome packages.

It was truly a pleasure working with event planner, Libby Page. She certainly made the process fun! And bride Margaret was a delight as well. She had great ideas to get us started and then let us fly away with production from there.

white feather - nashville

White Feather, Nashville's ultimate spiritual resource center, threw a grand opening shindig over the holidays. We created a special invitation welcoming a small group of folks into their store for the evening. Currier sketched a beautiful bird feather from one she'd found out on a morning hike. When it came time for printing we decided to do white foil on this dreamy, duplexed gray paper. Other items we included were stickers for packaging and these gorgeous napkins (silver foil stamped). All of these elements created a cool and ethereal tone just in line with the White Feather vibe.
