Aquarell Workshop bei Spunkhaus München

Last December I participated in a really great water color workshop at Spunkhaus here in Munich led by Sylvia Betancourt of Sweet Little Dots. It was great, 3 hours that covered the basics. When I was in design school I took oil painting classes and loved them, but water painting always intimated me (so little control!) I'd really like to add more original water color designs to the e.m.papers collection and this workshop inspired me to do so, stay tuned! Second image from Spunkhaus

Fonty Freitag - Geotica

As a rule, I tend to avoid overly showy or display typefaces, but when I was trying to come up with a Art Deco/1920s/Great Gatsby style wedding invitation design last year, I came across Geotica.  What I really liked about it was it's simplicity. It nods to the razzle dazzle and glitz of the golden 20s without being overly showy. The minimal serifs with the thicker stems of each character also give it a nice contrast.  In the Classic Black and White wedding design series I paired it with Herr Von Mullerhoff to really create an elegant, classic look. The 1920s overtones are best described by the word 'Swanky' (maybe that's what I should have called the invitation set!) To me,...

Printable Hochzeitseinladung Set - Pink Block

Have you seen 'Pink Block' one of our newest printable wedding invitation design sets?  I figured the beginning of February would be a good time to highlight it. While it's not specifically for a Valentine's day wedding, you have to admit it would be pretty perfect. With it's blush pink, well, blocks and arrow motif. But, of course this wedding design, works for all kinds of weddings. The main thing is that the wedding printables are exceedingly romantic, a little preppy and thoroughly modern. As with all of our printable wedding sets, it comes with a wedding invitation, a response card and detail/info card. On the listing you can download a free sample of the invitation to try it out...

Leidenschaftsprojekt: Hochzeitsliga München

About two years ago, I participated in the first Deutsche Hochzeitskongress, a conference for wedding bloggers, planners, stationers, photographers and more. It was a fantastic experience.  The event was really well put together and it showed that the wedding industry here in Germany had really grown up. While there I got a chance to connect with many of my fellow Munich-based wedding vendors and idea was born. Collectively we really knew who were the coolest, non-mainstream wedding vendors in Munich, why not highlight this knowledge and share this insider expertise with the world? With that Hochzeitsliga was born. Hochzeitsliga is a site that curates and publishes in one place wedding vendors that we would use if we were doing it all over...
