airy, ethereal wedding inspiration: the jane suite

airy, etheral wedding inspiration with invitations by hello tenfold

This is the new Jane wedding invitation suite, along with how I envision the wedding it could pair with. Simple, romantic, airy, ethereal — lots of white with touches of soft color and organic details. This wedding invitation set has a modern, abstract floral pattern to offset the simple border and vintage-inspired fonts. I always love the last minute textural touches that go into a wedding suite — the soft cotton string used to tie the program booklet, and the pale green cotton ribbon wrapped around the wedding invitation.

Introducing the Chloe wedding invitation suite! This one features a classy, preppy pattern in black and white with a touch of gold foil and a calligraphy-inspired font. I love how it’s modern but with a hint of traditional and vintage-inspired elements. My favorite part, I think, is that thin cotton ribbon and tiny bow to tie it all together.

marbling & copper foil

marbled and copper foil save the dates by hello tenfold

When a recent client told me she envisioned marbling and foil for her save the dates, it was all I could do to not hug her around the neck in excitement. Yes to marbled paper, and yes to copper foil. And yes to her color palette, snagged from a gorgeous living room featured in Veranda.


home swap!


When my husband quit his job last Fall to start Harbor, one of our goals with this new-found freedom was to travel more. Especially the kind of travel where we’d be able to hunker down for a while (hello, toddler!) and still be able to work (bills!). We were just starting to look into home swap websites and thinking about destinations when a friend mentioned that her mother-in-law would be coming to Durham for a month. And it so happened that this mother-in-law lives in Arizona, which is a place I love, and so a home swap was arranged and here we are! We’ll be in Arizona for a month and have explored Flagstaff and Sedona. We’re working during the week, thanks to a couple babysitters found on, and exploring on the weekends. I’m in heaven.

I love how Audrey from Urbanic captured my Josephine design for Bella Figura! I’m already thinking about my 2016 collection for Hello Tenfold and I believe that more color is in order.
