Whimsical Garden Wedding
One of the great things about stationery and calligraphy is that it ships! This allows for so much more flexibility in who and where we can work with, and we love taking on clients and shoots from different parts of the country and world.
For shoots alone, our stationery has seen the slot canyons of Arizona, a chateau in Texas, the King and Queen Seats in Maryland, the Oregon Coast, the Oregon High Dessert, and several locations in the Willamette Valley, with several more locations on the books! If we ship product for shoots, though, there’s a limit to what we can send, so we absolutely love going to the events in person. SSAA Portland was the perfect opportunity to contribute some larger pieces, so incorporating those was the plan from the beginning.
This shoot had a really unique color palette, which was both exciting and challenging to work with. The whimsical garden vibe fit perfectly with our Sweet Pea semi-custom suite, and we created a new calligraphy style and crest specifically for this suite. The soft yellow envelopes compliment the yellow florals on both the invitation cards and the envelope liners, and the vintage postage feels as if it was made for those specific envelopes. In addition to the stationery, we also created custom vow books, a calligraphy fabric backdrop, barn window seating chart, place cards and menus, and wine bottle decor.
Styled Shoots Across America puts on such elegant shoots, and their Portland event was no exception. They pull so many resources together for such a memorable experience.
