Blush Boudoir

We're feeling saucy today—feels like a splendid time to show off some glamorous, sultry boudoir photos by our photographer friend, Tracy Abstson. Her Blush Budoir project is laced with so much hotness, I practically need an icy beverage just to finish this post.

I simply love this concept: sexy, beautiful shots of yourself, propped to your liking to capture your more provocative side. The key here is eloquence, and Tracy is able to toe this fine line so gracefully without missing the sparkle. Her comfort level with her clients is obvious and creates the perfect platform to bring out the vixen in all of us. Typically intended for your sweetie's eyes only, I can't think of a better gift to spice things up a bit.

Genna and Clark's Farmhouse Wedding

You may remember an inspired mood board we shared for Genna and Clark's Bohemian Farmhouse chic wedding invitations a couple of months ago. Well today, we are happy to share the finished product with you along with some breathtaking shots by Poiema Photography. On October 17th, Genna and Clark tied the knot on Clark's family farm, Jumping Run Farm. An old dairy farm in charming Louisburg, North Carolina, this rustic diamond in the rough laid the the perfect groundwork for an enchanting, personalized event guests would not soon forget.

Clark shared some photos of the farm with us before we started this design which made it easy to capture the perfectly homespun essence of the farm and the viney terrain of the property itself. The invitation suite we created came tucked in a woodgrain paper belly band bound with baker's twine and a single apple green button.

Clark's own photography of the farm debuted on the front of a vintage inspired RSVP postcard for an extra personal touch.

You simply can't have a wedding on a dairy farm without a couple of lovable cows in the mix.
Luxurious 1-color letterpress done by the amazingly talented Studio On Fire and intricate nature-inspired detailing add just the right amount of finesse.
Clark and Genna, we have enjoyed every minute of working with you. Your love story is the stuff fairytales are made of, and your wedding photos capture your personalities perfectly. Many, many congrats.

A New Look for BHPP+K

We recently did some work with the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Preschool and Kindergarten to help make their annual silent auction a fundraising success. A 4-piece design and invitation kit was designed for the auction committee to use to help promote this swanky philanthropic affair at the Beverly Wilshire.

The fundraising project went so well that the Beverly Hill Presbyterian Preschool and Kindergarten also chose us rebrand the school itself. Just before the first school bell invited youngsters back to school this fall, we helped the school (BHPP+K) roll out this refreshed logo along with matching collateral materials. The colorful and sophisticated new look tastefully captures the essence of youth and learning. A book icon pays tribute to the bible without polarizing families who aren't Presbyterian—a challenge we faced going into this project. We feel the new look is fun, fresh and laced with just enough spiritual reference to keep all members feeling comfortable and united. If you're in the Beverly Hills area, also look for the school signage we designed at the corner of Rodeo Drive and Santa Monica Boulevard!
