Paper Design: Garden Party Editorial

It was such a joy to see our Garden Party editorial featured in the first print edition of Utterly Engaged! The picturesque location, Gardens of Bella Vita, impeccable styling of Joy Proctor Design, gorgeous florals by Kelly Kaufman, and swoon worthy photography by Jose Villa brought this garden dream to reality. It was a privilege to work with this team and put together corresponding watercolored and hand calligraphed paper goods! 

As seen in print... thanks again, Utterly Engaged!

Black coffee, satin ribbon, a bright and cheery read.

Could not hold back from sharing these photos with you this morning!

I love that paperweight. What a gem.

"Track bag" favor bag, along with a ticket envelope and a few other goodies including Feast calligraphy.


Thank you, Aimee Mazzenga, for capturing the beauty that was this wedding and the privilege that it was to see my work included. And thank you to the rest of you for celebrating Feast's feature in this well-known and loved magazine with me- it was so fun to receive pictures from friends purchasing the magazine in stores and many words of encouragement in person and via the web. I am so blessed to have been offered this opportunity and blessed to have the opportunity to share it with you!  xo Alissa

Snow Falls White on Grey

Today I thought it would be nice to get out of the house and get some work done at our local coffee shop. I drove about a minute down the road, hit the brakes, barely avoided swerving into oncoming traffic and decided that the snowstorm had won. I’m not complaining. I love working as I watch the the wet snow fall outside my window. And I love the thought of being cooped up indoors because of it.

Hope you’ve found a peaceful place to be today, wherever you may be reading this from! xo alissa
