I have been waiting for weeks to find the perfect time to post this shoot, so you can imagine my excitement right now as I showcase the big reveal to you. A few months back, I got an email from Couture Events by Lottie, after I met her on the set of this styled shoot, inviting me to design all the stationery and paper goods for an upcoming Farm-to-Market “engagement” shoot. And of course, after answering with a very giddy “YES!,” I went straight to work, teaming up alongside Jen Rios Design and other Dallas/Ft. Worth wedding vendors (listed below) to create one of the most beautiful tables capes and set designs I’ve ever seen.
Since Jen’s vision for this shoot included lots of colorful florals, herbs, vegetables, and fruit, I wanted the paper goods to complement, not compete with, their surroundings. So, after loads of research and inspiration-gathering, I designed the invitations to convey a vintage seed packet look and printed everything on beautiful kraft paper card stock to create a natural, recycled paper look against the vibrant colors of nature’s finest florals and edibles.
What’s so great about styled shoots is the freedom to get really creative, like getting to use real names of people I know on the escort cards displayed in a vintage metal receipt book and hand-drawing silverware outlines on kraft paper place mats. Another perk is the privilege to work with other creatives as a team (and in my case, with people I’ve never actually met in person) towards one goal and one vision and seeing it all come together in the most perfect and seamless way. And you know, I think it’s safe to say that’s exactly what happened. Feast your eyes, my friends.
