custom work // lauren + melvin

i always love seeing pictures from the weddings of brides i work with. it's so different to work on a name file for an invitation, or a place card in my office, to seeing it all styled up on their big day with the decor and little details. i worked with lauren on a few different pieces for her invitation and day of details. here are a few images shot by her photographer, odalys mendez photography.

you can see the rest of the wedding here.

workshop recap // watercolor calligraphy 01

we're having our second watercolor calligraphy class at great over good this weekend, so i thought it was the perfect time to recap our first one! and if you're interested in attending (there is another pointed pen modern calligraphy workshop as well) be sure to check out the workshop schedule over on the left.

we hosted this class right before valentines day, so there was a lovey dovey theme all around. pink and burgundy flowers and plenty of prints to decorate the walls.

these girls were pro's… looking like they had years of practice after just 2 hours!

at the end of class we all wrote out our favorite quote to take home and display.

weekend update // 3.23

it's been long enough. i had to check back in even if i didn't have any super exciting projects to share with you. although i have lots of them stored up in my head, getting them done in real life has been a struggle. prepping for the cream pretty much took my life over for the past 3 weeks (sign above i created for my space! i had host & toast cut my logo, then attached it to a huge piece of wood. i'm in love), and then catching up afterwards… whole different story. but i feel like i have room to breathe again so it'll be back to regular posting on the blog, yay! we had a fun weekend though. filled with lots of work, but it was fun work since we were shooting some stuff for a champagne brand;) i thought i would share a few peeks into that to kick off the week!

thyme champagne cocktails in the backyard, it was such a perfect day!

i've been on a white kick. it's a dangerous choice when entertaining, but i felt like it was appropriate being spring and all.

my little portia cuddling up for the sunset.

celebrating flowers that last forever. and my new favorite rug.

a private class i taught on saturday. was so much fun working with a group of friends!

part of some orders that went out.

celebrating saturday;)

the arrangements for our class sat that the host made herself. so good.

what were you guys up to this weekend?!

ps. sorry i had to turn on the comment moderation and all of the hoops you have to jump through to leave one now. my blog was getting an insane amount of spam… so i had to. hope it's no too much trouble, i love reading them!!

featured work // 2015 wedding trends to watch

i worked on some pieces for a shoot a while back and can finally share the images! well, i've been able to share (this was the january issue), but am finally getting to it;)
my prediction for 2015 trends was simple, modern and playful so i stuck with black and white and completed the suite in watercolor. what do you guys think?

and a few more of my favorites from the shoot.






you can see all of the details here.
