Cactus and Copper Styled Shoot

One of the best parts of my job is getting to work with wedding professionals who are equally as passionate about creating impossible to forget weddings and events.  From photographers, to stationers, to pastry chefs, to makeup artists, to videographers, to calligraphers, to planners, to dress designers, and on, and on - there are so many people whose passion ensures that a person’s big day is everything they dreamed of and more.

A side benefit of getting to work with these passionate individuals is collaborative projects and styled shoots.  The one featured here today just wrapped, and it is one of my absolute favorites! Cacti, bright colors, gorgeous tablescapes, pretty paper, and Magnolia Postage vintage stamps (of course), all pulled together by an incredibly talented team of passionate wedding professionals (all credited below).

Shoots like these remind me of the fun in pulling together a cohesive set of vintage stamps for wedding invitations.  I often ask clients about their interests, family, fiancé, how they met, where they met, what they love doing together, and where their big event takes place ... are there colors or themes that are being used during their event that I can help to highlight with a nod though vintage postage?  Understanding these fun facts helps me pull stamps that hint at the wonder of their upcoming event... like an inside joke, or quiet hint, a coordinated set of vintage stamps can help to reflect the special day that is to come.

There are so many fun examples of other styled shoots that I can’t wait to share.  Stay tuned for more fun updates.

Huge credit and thanks to the wonderful team listed below (most located in/near Annapolis, Maryland).

The Season for Green

It is late spring here in North Carolina and perennial bulbs are bursting to life, grass is growing, leaves are unfurling, and brides are heading down the aisle. What better time to talk about one of the most abundant colors in the vintage stamp anthology: Green.

I use green more than just about any other color when it comes to styling vintage stamps for wedding invitations. The options and themes that can be pulled from the green stamps that have been released are seemingly endless: florals, trees, golf, fishing, nautical, Florida, New York, DC, South Carolina, Nevada, Minnesota, lakes, poets, authors, colonial history, and on and on… you get the picture.

And what could be better than green vintage postage? Well, pink and green vintage stamps of course, but we’ll cover that another day.

 

Looking to purchase green stamps? Here are some of the ones we stock:
1-5 Cent Green Stamps | 6-20 Cent Green Stamps | 21-30 Cent Green Stamps | 31+ Cent Green Stamps
