We teamed up with Project Wedding this past April for a wedding shoot in Malibu. The full gallery is now on view at Project Wedding. It’s a real couple, Aude and Gilles, who worked with us to stage this beautiful Morrocan-inspired scene.
Here a few highlights of my contributions. I created menus, vows, table numbers and place cards that incorporated watercolor frames and designs.
The astounding florals and shoot styling was created and designed by Poppies & Posies. And of course, photography by the talented Jen Huang.
Felt & Wire, the blog and shop run by the esteemed Mohawk Fine Papers, invited me to be featured this week in a post about my love letter transcription service. They were wonderful to work with and I appreciated a reason to review some of my favorite letters from clients past.
Can’t quite describe how pumped I am about this. Real Simple magazine included the Paperfinger custom address stamp in their wedding gift guide of their June issue, which is just beginning to reach newstands. I love this magazine and am so thrilled to have this product featured.
It was really fun to see my clients’ wedding posted to Style Me Pretty last week! Michelle and Josh were married last September at The Hill in Livingston, upstate New York. I had the pleasure of designing their save the dates and invitations, pictured below. For more photos of the invitations, you can see my earlier post.
The beautiful and joyous gallery of photographs were taken by Dave Robbins.
Early this January, I was cast as the calligrapher/illustrator for this new Paper Mate pen commercial that starts airing today in advance of the Academy Awards. It’s only 12 seconds but you’ll catch of glimpse of me sketching in the middle of the paparazzi crowd – and then all the hand shots that follow are of me writing. 12 seconds of prime time fame!
Check out more scenes from the shoot on Paper Mate’s Facebook page. And here are some other behind-the-scenes shots as well, thanks to Tim Miller of Big Chief.
I designed this menu for a private dinner party created and hosted by Karen Mordechai of the esteemed Sunday Suppers (= luxurious cooking classes, beautiful food photography, custom events and dreamy recipes). Armed with some information on the aesthetic of the evening and that it would be a table full of enthusiastic foodies, I created this menu and hand wrote each one to be placed at the guests’ seats.
My inspiration came from the now-ubiquitous meat cut diagrams that oh so many restaurants have incorporated into their interiors, menus and logos. Rather than diagram the meat, I decided to diagram the meal!
Along with the menu, Karen needed a few signs and labels for the homemade tomato jam that served as a party favor. Here’s the recipe.
As always, Karen styled a beautiful table along with florals by Jessie of Rountree.
And a few more shots of the materials in my studio:
All gorgeous photos shot by Karen Mordechai. All the normal-looking ones were shot by me in the studio. Pig diagram courtesy of Osovo.com.
This month’s Brides Magazine has a feature story on a vintage styled reception. I was invited to contribute tons of calligraphy for the shoot including a large menu for framing; place mats that functioned as place cards; food signs; escort cards and other paper goodies.
Here are some shots of the article! Thanks @followking for the photography.
