Wedding Invitation Review!

Wow, Wow, Wow! So exciting. We just received a lovely letter from our clients. xoxoxo

"James and Michelle,

Some brides may say “it’s all about the dress”,  we say “it’s about the invitation” ! 

When planning our wedding we were looking for something different, something that we had never seen before and something that made a modern but elegant statement.

Coming from two different religious backgrounds we decided on a destination wedding in St. Lucia with a celebration party upon our return.  We can’t thank you enough for saving us from the drama and stress with your useful phrases and word suggestions listed on your website.

The yellow hibiscus written in fuchsia, matching Thank you cards and photo album were exactly everything we had envisioned.  Truly beautiful.    

We appreciate all your prompt phone and email replies. 

We couldn’t of received all the compliments on the wedding invites without the both of you!

They were absolutely perfect!   Thank you, Thank you!

~ Joane and Steven R."

Custom Invitations ~ Hand Painted Hotel Del Coronado

Wet Paint! On July 10th I finished this custom hand painted Hotel del Coronado painting for Janet’s daughter’s custom wedding stationery. Weird thing. I painted this before I received the photo (first photo above) from Janet. I’m glad it is almost identical to what she sent. Lucky because this custom painting almost took 3 hours.

I can't wait to show you the entire stationery suite!


Custom Mountain Letterpress Invitations

I always enjoy a custom made wedding invitation design!
Angela approached me and requested a custom designed mountain themed letterpress invitation based on the photograph above (top photo). She wanted a simple hand drawn invitation design. Her save the dates (not shown) featured the same mountain themed illustration in white on an all chocolate brown background. Next, I’ll upload the art to my account so she can enjoy the hand drawn mountain illustration on her stamps also.
