wedding 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.

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.

The Rosewall Wedding

These photos really speak for themselves… but a few notes. We created a watercolor for the invitation in these muted gray and earth tones. Then we carried that watercolor over into all the day of pieces like. Even the cake was molded after our design.  Sara Fried created such a dreamy, Tuscan affair that made guests double take they were still in Nashville. What was normally a big blank event space turned right on into Tuscany! Gorgeous flowers everywhere, olive branches draping, hand-painting slabs of Calcutta marble signage, twinkly garden lights, a tasting menu adorned with silver leaf, and incredible music. It all made for an incredible evening.

Magnolia Blooms / Oh So Beautiful Paper / Nashville Wedding

SO excited to share this post. It was an incredible collaboration between some of the best minds out there and we worked so hard as a team to bring these designs to life. The bride and her mother came to us with magnolia dreams and we did our best to make them come true! See this suite featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper

The Save the Date was letterpressed in blush + gray and we created a custom illustration of Cheekwood, where the reception took place. They loved the idea of a bookmark so we created this magnolia pattern to wrap around the card and be a keepsake for guests.

We also designed this holiday time engagement party invitation. Same feel, but with a festive hint of gold foil and a colorful liner. 

Then for the big day we revealed our plans for a custom magnolia wrap that held all the details together. Inside this luxe invitation was letterpresses + gold foiled and edge painted. Such a gorgeous impact of just how special this wedding would be. The wrap even had a pocket that tucked all the detail and rsvp info neatly behind. The magnolia tree we illustrated was repeated on the custom wax seal.

Even the blush from the save the date made an appearance on the rsvp card and envelope. We really wanted to the suite to feel like you were revealing another level of detail as it unveiled!

All these details carried over into the day of items as well. I love the cohesiveness to this wedding. We got to flex our creative muscles and create outside the box for sure!

outdoor, cabin side wedding - nashville

This wedding was a mix of rustic-chic for two outdoors enthusiasts. Sara Fried of Fete Nashville created such a unique setting of wood texture mixed with romantic florals. Delicate string lights hung in the trees, feathers, antlers, and soft florals along the farm tables outside, and everything set against the couples log cabin home in the background. Lot's of romantic details and the beautiful bride was so glamorous, but her best buddy, Amos-the-dog, almost stole the show. Almost! 

We designed the wedding invitation by re-creating the family crest into one more personal to the bride and groom. Inside we watercolored the log cabin home and added their canine friend who's king of the castle. Everything was letterpress on felt paper then backed with wood grain stock to add more texture. This was a fun one and we loved working with this wonderful group of folks.
