Vibrant Gustav Klimt Inspired Editorial

Last Spring, Lind­say from Six­pence Events dreamed up an edi­to­r­ial shoot inspired by the vibrant col­ors, golden tones and sen­sual por­trayal of love best char­ac­ter­ized by Gus­tav Klimt. As a nod to the female sub­jects that Klimt often depicted in his paint­ings, the shoot fea­tured a same sex cou­ple in etheral gowns by Ever­thine Bridal Bou­tique – all cap­tured by Eric Foley Pho­tog­ra­phy.

When it came to design­ing the sta­tionery suite, I was most inspired by the luxe china (seri­ously stun­ning!) and Klimt’s art. The scal­lop bor­der on the invi­ta­tion is evoca­tive of the china pat­tern and the loose and lan­guid font was specif­i­cally cho­sen as it felt like it was penned by the artist him­self. A painterly flo­ral liner adds soft­ness to the suite and hints at the sat­u­rated blooms by Aza­lea Flo­ral Design. The stamps on the outer enve­lope were arranged in the lower right cor­ner to allow the address to span across the top; an unex­pected ele­ment that brings whimsy to the design. Non-traditional envelopes might just be by favorite thing to incor­po­rate into a sta­tionery suite!

For the favors, I dreamed up the idea of petite palettes with mac­a­roons washed in bright col­ors rem­i­nis­cent of the paints Klimt would have used to cre­ate his mas­ter­pieces. Cute right? And con­sider this a pub­lic ser­vice announce­ment: the mac­a­roons at Taste by Spell­bound will change your life; they are light as air and beyond deca­dent. The salted caramel ones are the stuff dreams are made of!

Erin & Taylor’s Romantic Blush and Grey Wedding Invitations

Erin and Taylor’s roman­tic and ele­gant invi­ta­tion suite let guests know that this was a cel­e­bra­tion not to be missed! Work­ing hand-in-hand with Erin and Sta­cie Shea Events, we cre­ated a beau­ti­ful suite putting a fresh spin on clas­sic ele­ments. On the main invi­ta­tion, angled type and cal­lig­ra­phy by Brown Linen Design are framed with a flo­ral bor­der blind debossed on double-thick Crane’s Let­tra. The thick cot­ton stock allows the blind impres­sion to be deep and visu­ally promi­nent – but in a sub­tle way. Blush envelopes with coor­di­nat­ing vin­tage stamps add a dash of color. The entire suite was wrapped in del­i­cate lace rib­bon inspired by the bride’s gown and veil.

The paper ele­ments came full cir­cle at the wed­ding and recep­tion, with design details car­ried over to the pro­grams, place cards, event sig­nage, blan­ket wraps and foil stamped menus.

To see the gor­geous wed­ding in it’s entirety, visit Style Me Pretty! Also seen in The Knot NY and fea­tured on Oh So Beau­ti­ful Paper.
