blues rock wedding invites

I love seeing how gig posters and that style of artwork have trickled down into everything from packaging to personalized wedding invites. Erin Jang created these invitations for a blues-rock-loving couple that got married in the South this summer. The couple and their family traveled from Toronto to Clarksdale, Mississippi, so they wanted the invitations…

paper, weddings by 35

paper record player

Whew! NYC survived another snowstorm, so I think it’s time to kick back and settle into a snowy weekend. AC and I are pounding the pavement tomorrow looking for new apartments (fingers crossed!), so I’ve been busy selling things and gathering ideas for a fresh start in a new space.

stop-motion wedding video

I love a good short video, especially when there’s a happy ending. This wedding video is a fun, festive and unique way to document a special day and I love the playfulness of it. Bonnie and Rhys were married at Margaret River in Western Australia and worked with photographers Sophia Bayly and Simon Moore to…

handkerchief wedding invites

When AC and I got married last year, one of my favorite things about the big day was seeing our handkerchief invitations worn by guests as pocket squares. When I saw these beautiful handkerchief invites for the wedding of Youngna and Jacob, I was hooked. As much as I love paper, there’s something about using…
