Cupcake inspiration!

Cupcakes are one of my favorite desserts and lucky for me they are so popular right now. When I got married back in July my husband & I did a cupcake tower instead of a wedding cake & it was a hit! I came across Sugarbloom Cupcakes & Macarons on the web & was stunned by how detailed and elegant their cupcakes are. Unfortunately they are located in Australia, otherwise I’d recommend them to all of my friends getting married. Enjoy the inspiration!cupcakes_02

Photo candy

I found this candy favor idea on the Martha Stewart Weddings website. I love the idea of each chocolate bar being a different photo of the bride & groom growing up. They could be displayed on a large table in chronological order and would be a great alternative to a slideshow.

Playful calligraphy

I came across Paperfinger’s portfolio while browsing the web & fell in love with their playful handwriting. I am excited to get a personalized address stamp created for myself! =)

Luke & Amanda save the date ideas

Here are some ideas for Luke & Amanda’s wedding save the dates! Amanda’s vision for her big day is a hint of nature so I incorporated birds and branches, which I think worked nicely with their wedding colors. We started to brainstorm decorations  to help tie this idea together and came up with willow branches as center pieces with small tea lights. Looking forward to exploring more ideas!

Odom Southern invite

Kristi at Odom Southern approached me to design an invitation for a company event. The event was champagne tasting so she wanted that to come across in the design, as well as have an old hollywood feel. In order to save some money we printed in black & white. Below are the 4 design directions I came up with.
