Just Married! Congrats to Sydney and Chris!!
When I was asked to custom design Sydney and Chris’ barn themed wedding invitations, I was thrilled! I had never designed such a theme. After much research, we were ALL very pleased with the results. A white folder invitation in thick white cardstock boasting my hand-painted barn complete with a couple kissing in the door way. Inside a metallic card layer in blue with white invite on top. Hanging outdoor lights streaming on the left side of the card to the right. The invite was scored by hand and hand-folded then wrapped twice with baby yellow satin ribbon and hand-tied into a bow. You can view more details of the invitation on this page.
(once like a spark) photography was Sydney and Chris’ photographer. Hop on over to the post “Fun and Spirited So Cal Wedding” over at “A Paper Proposal” to view MORE lovely photos from their wedding including MORE of the stationery I designed for the couple. Another FABULOUSLY FUN couple married!!!

This morning I SHED SOME LIGHT on how many watercolor lighthouses I have hand-painted for custom wedding invitations! As I searched for a “lighthouse with a bit of ocean at the base” for Dianna’s place cards, to my surprise I found 7+ lighthouses I had illustrated for invitation designs in the past. I would love to layout samples for you to see the invites for each. But time does not allow that right now. So here you will find the lighthouses in watercolor that are available. If you want a custom invitation design with a lighthouse that is not shown here, no worries! Just ask me! I personally LOVE to paint them. And they do look so lovely on an invite. I promise, “in my spare time” I will snap a few photos for nautical invitation ideas!
Shown in the upper left corner (not the top photo) and lower right corner the St. Simons Lighthouse in Georgia. Shown in the middle, Marblehead Lighthouse in Ohio. Top right corner is Montauk Point Lighthouse in New York. Bottom left corner, Hope Town Lighthouse in the Bahamas. Middle bottom row, Cape May Lighthouse in New Jersey. And below, York Lighthouse in Maine.
