new website is live!

website1

Jonathan and I are delighted to announce the (full) launch of our brand-spanking new website today! We launched partially in January, but now the site is live in full. Check it out!

Two of our biggest priorities while designing our new site were 1) that the site really show off our work and 2) that it be clean, simple, and incredibly user-friendly. The site has been a real labor of love and we’re so excited to share it with you!

website2

One of my favorite sections is the Custom Portfolio, where you can view past custom projects. Several of our couples have shared their wedding photos with us, which really shows off how well invitations and day-of paper items can tie together to make an event seamless from beginning to end.

The FAQ section answers some commonly asked questions about our process, pricing, timeline, environmentally friendly resources, and working with us if you don’t live in the Seattle area.

The Press section features magazines, books, and websites that have written about us and our work – also in this section are several testimonials from happy clients.

Of special note is our new Studio Collection – ready to order, easy to customize letterpress invitations. More on those later this week!

We are so grateful to our amazing clients for continually inspiring us and to the other wedding professionals who have supported us and our work. I hope you enjoy perusing the new site!

dresses on the brain

modclothdresses

I have dresses on the brain (which is not that uncommon for me). I headed over to modcloth.com to browse their dresses and came to an unfortunate discovery: every single dress that I was drawn to is SOLD OUT. This leads me to three conclusions:

1: I have very mainstream taste, apparently. (Bad.)
2: I’m not quick enough on the draw – totally missed out. (Bad.)
3: All the dresses I am drawn to are slightly longer in length (moderately close to or at knee length). The fact that these longer dresses are all sold out tells me I am not alone in this preference! Retailers, are you LISTENING? (Good!)

think pink!

voila2

Last week we participated in Voila! – a new bridal show concept – at the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland. Each event space at the Woodmark was transformed into a particular season and was loaded with inspiration and ideas. We participated in the Spring-themed room along with Woodland Flowers, Make a Scene Party Rentals, Buchanan Chocolates, BBJ Linens, La Belle Reve, Azzura Photography, Butler Valet, Coat Check Complete, Bugsie Productions, My Flawless Tan, and AA Party Rentals.

voila3

To correspond with the bright and springlike color palette of pink, pink, and more pink, we created lovebird menus, placecard flags, favor tags, and table numbers. The addition of Sofia Blanc de Blanc cans of sparkling wine added a whimsical touch, while the custom truffle favors (created by Buchanan Chocolates) added a yummy pop of interest to the table.

Special thanks to BreeAnn of Pink Blossom Events and Marcia and Diana of Panache Events for planning the event and to Tania of Azzura Photography for providing these photos!

felted wool pillows

Love these patterns, colors, and textures – these pillows from PLYtextiles’ etsy shop need to find a home on my couch, stat! (Made from recycled sweaters, they’re eco-chic too!)

completely unnecessary, but…

georgetheterrier

Um…I don’t need this little guy. He serves no real purpose. I don’t need him at all.

But he’s so darn cute, and so much easier than a real puppy…

(Urban Outfitters claims this little guy is a boston terrier. But doesn’t he look like a frenchie?)

Click…buy.

our bare walls are taunting me

letthesunshinein

Our bare walls are on my brain this week (as is evidenced by the two previous posts) – I’m itching to buy, frame, and hang new artwork. And I’m anxious to repaint the living room (currently green, but I think we’re going to paint it the same shade of gray as the studio – just waiting for a free weekend to tackle it).

This screen printed artwork by Slide Sideways is another favorite – perfectly appropriate for our Pacific Northwest household.

dear colleen print

champagne

I discovered the dear colleen etsy shop via design*sponge yesterday and immediately fell in love with this print. Inspired by a Tom Waits quote (I know Jonathan will appreciate that) and featuring my favorite beverage (mmm…bubbly), this could be a perfect addition to our wall.

Also, since I’ve been in real pain for the past week (I’m recovering from oral surgery), I can tell you that this print echos my real feelings on the matter.
