Here are pictures from the second Spread the Love Tour stop for which we provided paper pieces: Toronto. The theme this time was "Alice in Wonderland," and what an amazing job Justin and Mary did making it happen! We tend to work in a vacuum preparing things to send for the shoots, so seeing how our pieces are presented with the props, models, and scenery is always rewarding. Credit must also go assistant Julia Gargano, with whom we work to get the details just right, from Mad Hatter seating card tags & hats, to hand-lettered "Wrong Way" signs and "Drink Me/Eat Me Tags" to timepiece signs and tags.

These stunning photographs are courtesy of the talented Justin & Mary based in Connecticut. We were fortunate enough to be a part of two of their stops on 2011's Spread the Love Tour.
These shots are from the Houston workshop, where the theme was "Cowboy Take Me Away." We love how they coordinated a Texas-style wedding. They are always gracious enough to provide us with photographs of our paper designs. For this stop we designed seed tags, an illustrated quilt board on which seating tags were pinned, as well as few dessert signs.

While not invitation or wedding related, this was an out of the ordinary illustration opportunity from the spring we felt worth posting. We thoroughly enjoyed working with our friend Lauren of Porter Design Co. to create a rendering of this beautiful room she designed. We were given fabric swatches and pictures of the furnishings, as well as a general room layout. While it was challenging to create an accurate rendering without seeing the finished room, it was amply rewarding when Lauren sent us photographs of how the room came together.
