Lovelies, it doesn’t get better than a Texan ranch full of poppies, folk art, and bohemian panache!

We are so excited to show off the results of our long-distance collaboration with the delightful ladies behind Austin-based Nouveau Romantics & The Nichols. Liz, mad-scientist and creative-genius of Nouveau Romantics, planned + assembled + orchestrated the amazing shoot. (!) Jennifer Nichols, photographer extraordinaire, captured the gorgeous day. We designed the Texas-bohemian inspired invitations + menus. More details (you know you want ’em!) below…but first, a little eye candy:

There are so many many many more beautiful photos over at Style Me Pretty and The Nichols blog.

A bit about our work: the invitations were hand-illustrated with an original folk-art drawing and printed on a rare paper made from recycled tobacco plant pulp. (It feels just like Texas soil – earthy and warm and slightly gritty.) We wrapped the invites in a creamy textured artist’s paper, which was hand-painted with watercolors in a dappled longhorn motif. Hand-spun nettle twine and a guinea feather wrapped up the rustic package. Can you tell we’re just a wee bit obsessed with making things by hand?!

We had so much fun crafting these lovelies that we designed a couple of ready-to-order variations in our shop.

The menus were set with hand-drawn type and printed on a thick French Paper stock, then rounded to fit each dinner plate. Each menu was personalized with a guest’s name for an extra bit of sweetness and set at their respective place settings. Hooray for a menu & place card in one!

We were so happy to be a part of this shoot and can’t send enough thanks + hugs to everyone involved, especially to Liz and Jennifer. Not only are they fantastic to work with, they’re pretty wonderful people to boot. If you’re looking for an event designer and/or photographer for your wedding, we highly encourage you to say hello to ’em!

    Absolutely love the hand drawn feel of the invitations. Makes it all the more personal! I live in Texas and will be having my wedding somewhere in Dallas in the next year. I am going to make my own invitations, and this is very close to what I had in mind! Lovely shoot!
