New England meets West Coast

We’re ecstatic to share with you the details of a styled shoot that was recently featured on Style Me Pretty! We put our heads together with a dream team of wedding professionals, spearheaded by Alexis from The Little Things and we were aiming to capture the whimsical, effortless style of the west coast and pair it with the clean, preppy east coast style. Ruth Eileen Photography was there to capture every second, and MAN that girl is talented!!!:)Here are some of our favorite shots that we wanted to share, starting with the invitation suite which {as you know} sets the tone for every event!

Sweet Annie Florals and Shindig Events (who did the catering!) brought a TON of color into the soft backdrop of Plum Island. Can you believe how beautifully it all came together? We can’t stop flipping through the photos…

Check out the full post {here} and get ready to be inspired!

Our latest love: messy polka dots

For the last few weeks, we’ve been working on some custom stationery that features messy polka dots. What are those? Well just think of a paint brush making a little dot. They’re a playful version of an all-time classic pattern… and we can’t seem to get enough! Once our client’s stationery has been sent out, you better believe that we’ll be sharing photos of the final product!! For now, here was our inspiration…

Which do you prefer- the messy whimsy of this style, or the clean & chic classic dot?

3 must try Sangria recipes

The Paper Moss office is full of sangria lovers and summer definitely calls for some icy cold, fruit infused drinks! Emily, Caitlin and I wanted to share our favorite recipes, in the event you’re wanting to shake up something new this weekend. Any guesses which recipe came from who!??!

Have a fabulous weekend, friends!!

Oh goodness, I’m nauseous with excitement to share this feature… because it was my own wedding! Our fabulous photographer, Ryan Flynn submitted our wedding to Seattle Bride Magazine and low and behold, they loved it!!

It’s so fun to see some of our wedding details on those glossy pages, though I’m not going to lie- there’s nothing I hate more than having attention on me so even sharing this is painful to some degree.;)Thanks so much for sharing in our excitement though!!! Without further adieu, here it is…

I owe every bit of the beauty of our wedding to the wonderful Nicole Haynes of Herban Design Studio. She was a total rockstar and saved my sanity. And speaking from experience, I can say how much of a difference it makes to work with vendors that you admire and “click” with. If anyone is getting hitched in Seattle, let me know- I have a dream team of vendors to refer you to!:)

Boston’s Best?!

We’re getting geared up to head to the Improper Bostonian’s “Boston’s Best” celebration tonight! You better believe that we are every bit giddy & humbled to be attending as this year’s Bridal Invitation award winners. We get this awesome badge as proof;)

And incase you haven’t seen the issue floating around town, here’s a little shot. We share pages in the Bridal category along with lovelies from Whim Events, Hello Love Photography, Ceremony {bridal gowns}, Max Ultimate Foods… to name a few.

GAH!! Thanks, Improper Bostonian! We couldn’t be happier!!
