I was scrolling around Pinterest this morning and a beautiful photoshoot caught my eye, featuring a menu I designed! Jessica Zimmerman created this tablescape for a Spring Edition of Arkansas Bride Magazine. The menu is from the Briolette suite I designed for Bella Figura, and was the springboard for the whole look. Aren't those flowers amazing?
I loved being a part of this mid-century modern styled shoot at The Durham Hotel — just around the corner from the Hello Tenfold studio!
Photographer L'amour Foto and Planner Events by Emily organized the day, along with some of my very favorite local vendors.
When I think of The Durham I think of their delicious coffee or rooftop wine in the evenings, but it is also a fantastic local wedding venue. Thanks ladies, for including my Flora wedding invitation suite!

I'm thrilled to have played a small part in Sarah and Travis' wedding, which is featured in the summer issue of The Knot!
Planners Alison and Bryan envisioned fabric banners and escort cards for this northern Michigan forest wedding, and we were excited to make it happen. The way it all came together was stunning!
In addition to the fabric elements, Hello Tenfold created bar menus, rose gold foil stamped dinner menus, place cards, and table numbers.

I love it from top to bottom - Sarah's dress, the flowers, the colors (!), and that black leather jacket. Not to mention the scenery. The whole day looks comfortable, intimate, and so genuine.
Sarah chose the Flora suite, and we stripped the design down to just a few colors — the brightest red orange we could get, cream, and green.
My favorite studio days are painting days! This week I'm focused on paintings and drawings for custom stationery. I usually don't have a plan in mind when I'm in the painting phase (unless of course I have some client input guiding me!). If I'm making new work for the shop or for a loosely guided commission, I'll pull out my reference books and paint whatever comes to mind. When I come up with something I like, I'll snap an iphone photo to bring the sketch into the computer. Some sketches get turned into black and white images so that they can be used for foil stamping or letterpress. If I want to retain the variations in tone to keep the painted look, I'll clean them up for flat printing. After the sketches are color edited I collage them together to create patterns, bouquets of florals, or interlocking borders, like the winter berry vine above.
