When Dr. Chrystle from Young Dental Group reached out to me about helping her put together some branding and stationery pieces for her practice, her main concern was making sure that everything looked professional and friendly! She really wanted her clients to feel at ease rather than a sense of dread about going to the dentist. Next to making sure that her clients are receiving top notch dental service, she has a real passion for making sure that her clients are flossing. (You must see the 90s throwback post on their facebook page, "Kriss Kross will make ya Floss, Floss")!
We worked together to create a custom logo (inspired by her dedication for promoting flossing), as well as stationery pieces including Thank You and Welcome Cards, Appointment Cards, Laminated Flavor Polish Menu, and Business Cards for her entire staff. The color palette was inspired by a serene beach sunset photo that Chrystle sent me for inspiration.
If you're in the San Mateo area and you're looking for a dentist, I'd definitely recommend checking out the Young Dental Group!

My dear friend Kerri recently posted a great series on her site about "Choosing Quality Wedding Vendors" and she interviewed a number of different vendors about their process, FAQs, and general tips. Genius! You can see her complete post here. I wanted to re-post my responses because I get asked these questions all the time, and I know it will be so helpful to brides & grooms who are looking for wedding stationers!

For this garden stationery suite, I was so inspired by beautiful chinoiserie textiles and wanted to translate that decorative and organic quality on to paper, but add my own whimsical twist! Who doesn't love a baby bunny and fruit? The tasseled favor tags and the die-cut crest shaped Dinner Menu add an elegant touch.
I'm so thankful for the artistic prowess of Brie Photography for helping me document this suite!

This is a little inspiration shoot that was published in Inspired by This last fall! Looking through the pictures again now, I'm falling in love all over again with all of the finer details and TLC that was poured into this. Ashley from Dulce Dreams Events dreamed up this idea of bringing nature inside and taking a very chic and modern penthouse space in NYC and transforming it into a little secret oasis. You would never know that this rooftop terrace was right above Madison Square Garden.
I just love all of the little things that make this shoot so special, like the hanging greenery "chandelier", the unique color palette (that deep cranberry red!), the large quote sign with "love is the only thing that when shared, grows", and the bride's beautifully messy side-braid and bold red lips!
For the paper suite, I wanted to do something that was classic, elegant, romantic with a whimsical twist!
Thank you to the wonderful team that made this beauty happen!
