Custom Invitations : Rustic Elegance Barn Wedding Invitations

Sneak a Peek! Here is a little taste of the hand painted rustic elegance custom wedding invitations design I created for Sydney and Christopher. I love the couple standing in the doorway of the barn. Inside this custom-made booklet style invitation is lovely sparkling blue card stock with an overlay of thick white invitation card boasting their blue wording. On the left inside, outdoor globe lighting strings are hand illustrated to give the guests a glimpse of the venue. I will post more photos on My Personal Artist Blog very soon.

Behind The Scenes ~ In the Studio

What a lovely Wednesday! James, my mother Pamela, and I are busy as bees! Right now in the studio, my mother is hand-tailoring these peony wedding invitations for Jessica and Benjamin. I am in love with the pink, champagne, and green colors. It reminds me of Spring days!

The sun is streaming in the studio window and the sky is blue. I've spotted and heard MANY blue jay birds and robins in the area. That can only mean one thing... spring is closer than ever! One more month of snow on the ground, maybe? Until then, I will continue to paint flowers and lose myself in floral invitations and tropical, beach wedding invitations scenes. Ahhh ... I'm in heaven! xo

Delighted Client!

Delighted Client: "Michelle: I wanted to let you know I received the invitations and they are BEAUTIFUL! Everyone is soooo impressed! Thank you so much for working with me to design the perfect invitation for my daughter's wedding. Thanks! Lynn D"

We used 1,232 Glue Dots on Lynn's daughter's custom pocket folder beach wedding invitations shown above. Each invitation was nestled in an invitation box with hand-folded aqua tissue paper and hand-tied wraphia bow. When the boxed is closed, a matching 2 layer custom label boasting my hand drawn starfish gave the guests a hint of the beach themed invitation design inside. We are so delighted that Lynn and her family are pleased. xo
