We recently received samples from Kathryn Christenbury of Fleur de Letters. She offers amazing calligraphy services for wedding invitation designs, envelopes, menus, escort cards etc. Her style has a very "vintage", "old-world" feel to it. Here are some of her samples. www.fleurcalligraphy.com
My husband and I welcomed our new baby boy into the world this week! Appointments with Double Happiness Creations will resume September 1st. In the meantime, please feel free to email us with any inquiries you may have and we will get back to you in a timely manner. Thank you!
In a few months, my husband and I will be welcoming a new baby to our family. I regretted not taking photos the first time I was pregnant, so I made sure that we had some taken this time.
I called upon my friend Stacey of Simply Sweet Snapshots. We have been using our talents as barter to help each other grow our businesses. She took all the gorgeous photos on our website and have documented my first son's two birthday parties and I've been designing her company's logo and promotional materials.
Take a peek at the photos from our maternity shoot and feel free to reach out to her for your own special life milestones that you want to capture!
My friend Beverly made this beautiful ring bearer pillow for my wedding day...but if you don't have a "Beverly" in your life, here are some other options you can consider!

Thank you all for coming out to the wedding showcase at the Center for Architecture Friday night! The evening was bustling with engaged couples and it was a lot of fun!
Our client approached us to design a "Red Egg and Ginger" invitation for herself and her two sisters! Yes, all three sisters gave birth within the last 6 months! The dragons represented the 3 baby dragons born into the family and the reverse of the invite was translated into Chinese. We also incorporated the Chinese names and their meanings for each child.
The invite was digitally printed on 110# coverstock
It's always great to have repeat clients...we announced the arrival of all of Jennifer's children and now we designed her mom's 70th birthday invitation! Jennifer and her sisters wanted to utilize our "long life" laser pocket envelopes and chose a simple design accented by plumeria.
The invitation was offset printed.
My friend, Dorina, owner of Oro Bakery and Bar in New York City sent me this photo of her latest creation this morning. The "double happiness" theme "wowed" me so much that I had to share it.
'The bride wanted something simple and elegant, but also something that would stand out in the beautiful backdrop of party's venue, The Loeb Boathouse, as well as pay tribute to the famillies' Chinese traditions.
Beautiful inside and out, the cake is vanilla paired with a fresh raspberry buttercream to match tastes and decor: The couple doesn't like chocolate, the groom likes fruit flavors. The flowers were pink and cream. Unlike some other multi-tiered cakes, all the layers are true delicious cake, and took some engineering to make sure it wasn't
going to go "Pisa."'
And having personally tasted Oro's cakes, I can say that they not only look good, they really taste good too!! Contact them for your next event!
Over a snowy January weekend I was finally able to meet Baby Luca for his birth announcement photoshoot. We were lucky enough to have the talent of children's photographer (and my good friend of 15 years), Linda Farwell, come and document the event. What came out of the day were some beautiful photos that really captured Luca, his big brother Enzo and his mom and dad. I also felt "recharged" and created 3 new designs using these photos! Which one will mommy and daddy choose? I'll find out soon! In the meantime, which one is your favorite? =)

I've seen many wedding websites over the years and have read many "about the couple" bios as well. But none really made me laugh and smile until I read Li Na and Michael's on their website. Here it is for you to enjoy with their permission:

Wishing Caroline and Michael a beautiful wedding tomorrow despite the forecast of rain. Even if it does, I'm sure they will have an amazing time! It was such a pleasure working with Caroline on her letterpressed, Asian-inspired, butterfly design. The peony that the butterfly lands on was blind embossed into the paper. Their English invitation was translated into Chinese and printed on the reverse side...also via letterpress and with no show-through...thanks to Sarah from Shed Letterpress and her artisan printing methods!
