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.

Draper James Whiskey Tasting with katie jacobs

Katie Jacobs, of Styling My Everyday, recently gave us a ring to see if we'd like to collaborate on a styled shoot for Draper James. Well… yes, please. What an honor!


Draper James is the new "gal" in town. It's Reece Witherspoon's first boutique nestled in the 12 South neighborhood of Nashville.

The theme was a Southern Whiskey Tasting and it took place at this incredible location called Homestead Manor. Think moss and antlers, beautiful reclaimed wood, a cozy bar, and some tasty cocktails for a girls night out. We designed a whiskey tasting invitation, place cards, and menus with all these elements in mind. Katie set the table with this cool Spode china so we painted a watercolor border to mimic the pattern. Then we backed the various pieces with woodgrain textured paper. Lots of special details that brought it all together.

Watercolor Crest - Save the Date

I know we're not supposed to pick favorites and all, but this is definitely a favorite. The bride really wanted a one-of-a-kind crest so we incorporated imagery from the Colorado mountains where the wedding will be held.
I love the bright cheerfulness of the crest balanced with the rugged letterpress on the opposite side. The Save the Date card was letterpress printed on wood grain paper, die-cut, and feature a custom illustration of antlers & headdress, along with a wood grain envelope liner. The Native American illustrations give a nod to some of the family heritage & there will be cocktails in a tee-pee on the big day. Hopefully guests are packing their bags already!
