Pomegranate Winter Wedding Inspiration - as seen in Bridal Guide Magazine

Today's post is a flashback to one of my favorite styled photo shoots I was a part of. This time of year, pomegranates are a big hit and their color couldn't be more perfect for weddings during the holiday season. This pomegranate styled shoot was featured in Bridal Guide Magazine as a 3 page spread in the Party Planner pages. For this shoot, I designed and hand-glittered all the paper goods including . . . invitation, dessert tags, place cards, and dessert toppers. All of the paper goods are still available for purchase in my Wedding Girl etsy shop. The stunning photography is by Kismis Ink Photography along with so many other amazingly talented wedding vendors who participated in creating this pomegranate inspired winter wedding. You can see the original post here with lots more inside scoop on the entire photo shoot and even more spectacular photos.

A Handmade Holiday : an eco-chic boutique at Invitations by Alecia

A Handmade Holiday continues today with the spotlight on Invitations by Alecia who offers custom and handmade wedding invitations. I love what she says in her shop . . . "If you can dream it, we can make it." Alecia also believes in using recycled papers, tree-free papers and  free trade papers - LOVE THIS!!!!! 

Alecia currently has several holiday themed cards for the holidays each one is made by hand and this one features real fabric on the outside and lining the envelope.


The following 3 cards come as a set with envelopes and are made by hand, using burlap, paint and cardstock.


And, Alecia designs the most amazing invitations. I love the embellishments she adds to them - whether it's closing the invitation with a sash and rhinestone buckle or sealing everything inside a box - it creates a definite wow factor, don't you think?
