wow, what an exciting week of features for calliespondence!  yesterday the ‘out of africa’ inspiration shoot we prepared letterpress invitations, menus and place cards for was shown on style me pretty’s georgia blog.  the chevron detail pattern even got a shout out from the writer in the introduction!  love that.  style me pretty is THE place to go for chic and stylish wedding (or just party) ideas, vendors and plain all around gorgeousness.  i am so honored to have been a part of this shoot – thanks to aharon hill photography for thinking of me!!  you can view the feature here, full photo gallery here and i’ve put the paper goods pictures below just for kicks.

out of africa: a styled wedding shoot

approximately two weeks ago, i was asked by my friend aharon of aharon hill photography (talented taker of rush’s newborn photographs; one of my very favorites you can see at the end of this post) to participate in a styled wedding photo shoot…meaning that nobody would actually be getting married, but we would use props and such to make it look like they were.  how FUN!  i was tickled to be included, so of course i scrambled to get designing and also made my new letterpress printer scramble (i’m sure he loves me already) to have the invitation and menu made in time for the shoot.  the weather agreed perfectly and the other talented vendors truly made the theme shine!  if it’s been a while since you’ve seen the movie, here are good inspiration frames courtesy of the stylist’s blog…

ok, check out this loveliness from modern day times.
