It’s time for another weekly installment of custom wedding work! Kelly and Suzannah got married today with the Idaho mountains in the background. While they ordered their invitations from Minted, they knew they needed custom work when it came to a map insert, so the bride’s sister reached out to me. Lucky for me, the driving directions from one venue to the other weren’t too complicated, so I got to have fun hand-drawing each landmark and include some gorgeous modern calligraphy, along with typography that ties into the invitation itself. Since color-matching the existing invitation would be problematic, we kept the design black and white and the results are striking!

Well friends, we are officially in holiday shopping season! I hate Black Friday crowds, so I do most of my shopping early or online (mostly from small businesses though!), and I’ve just launched a new product line perfect for gifting!
Custom mugs featuring watercolor illustrations, motivational phrases and personalized designs are now available in the shop! Some designs, like those above, are favorite prints or cards already in the shop, while others are brand new!
One of my favorite designs is the first of several watercolor monogram designs. I’m hoping to release new designs seasonally, and this first wintery monogram features my original burgundy and blush floral elements. Order any letter here!
p.s. You can also find the paper flowers in the mug photos in my shop! Check out this section. Happy shopping!
Well friends, we’re getting close to the end of my month of weddings, so I thought we’d go out with a bang. Originally created for a late-summer boho styled shoot (pics to come this fall!), I painted the watercolor flowers for these myself.
I love the energy and colors in this suite, but I think my favorite part is actually the whimsical design of the RSVP! Such a fun way to pack in a lot of information for your guests.
Too much floral can get repetitive, so for the boho save the date, I let the brush lettering shine on an ombré watercolor background. My new offset printer offers a variety of die-cut shapes, which really makes this piece stand out!
Friends from Bermuda are celebrating their nuptials at a yacht club in New York tomorrow! Since I already had this trip home planned, I’m unable to attend, but I used their big day as my inspiration for these nautical invitations!
Whether a dockside wedding or a seafaring theme, this sweet anchor motif paired with navy envelopes is perfect!
Ah, #monsteramonday! I’ve been saving these, just so I could use that hashtag on my Instagram post! It’s been quite the task, as this design is one of my favorites!
When I saw these giant monstera leaves in a pack of watercolor illustrations I recently purchased, I knew they would make an awesome statement on an invitation! Equally perfect for a South Beach wedding (can you imagine these with a pink envelope?!) or a foliage-filled urban loft, these invites are sure to get your guests excited for the big day.
