Notions and snapshots that shape our day to day.

Family affair!

November 24, 2011 in Day of Stationery

Hello and happy Thanksgiving to our Studio R friends and family.  We could not think of a more perfect holiday post to share with all of you in the midst of a season of being thankful for friends and family.  September 24th, my brother-in-law, Chip married the beautiful and ‘oh so sweet’ Heather (Peebles) Johnston, on the bank of the Kiawah River.  The ceremony took place at my in-laws at eleven in the morning, and the rain held off just long enough to make their vows official… and take a few outdoor snapshots too! Friends and family alike, jumped on board to help with every detail of this very special occasion, and paved the way for a breathtaking celebration.  Cru Cafe prepared a delicious brunch featuring a crepe station, eggs benedict station and more.  (My first “brunch” wedding… and I am really liking this idea!)  Our favorite cousin, Rebekah Harkins made the beautiful wedding cake complete with three irresistible flavors to satisfy every sweet tooth.  Event details were crafted by the uber-talented Hannah Alexander of WED, show stopping photography was delivered by the one and only Josh Drake, and of course Studio R dabbled in the stationery design, to establish the look and feel for this spectacular event.   The day was so special, you could feel all of the love in the air, and I was truly thankful to be a part of their special day.  After a beautiful afternoon reception, Chip and Heather packed their bags and headed off to Europe, for a very special honeymoon!  Below are just a few photos, but to see more visit Josh Drake’s blog

What a cute way to keep you guests on the dance floor all night long!  Custom flip-flop tags that incorporate your wedding day theme and colors are the perfect stationery accent, and will certainly be a big hit with all of your guests in heels.  If you are looking for a place to purchase these flip flops, Old Navy is a great suggestion.  They feature a large selection of colors, whole sizes and very reasonable prices.  Coupled with a cute sign… it is the perfect pair!

Oh Baby!  Every once in a while, we take a short break from creating custom wedding stationery to focus on baby shower invitations and baby announcements.  What fun!  We equally love this as much as we do weddings, and get so excited when a former bride comes back to us with stationery plans for their little one on the way.

We heart Verde!

November 3, 2011 in Foodie Friday

Last week, Studio R took a quick break from the custom invitation world to visit this hot new salad focused sensation on King Street, Verde!  Not only were we impressed with the super stylish aesthetic (oh the stripes!), but we were thrilled to see that this little gem belongs to one of Studio R’s past brides, Jennifer Shapiro Ferrebee.  A kind of  ”where are they now” moment surfaced, as it brought to mind so many amazing past clients and wishes of similar success!  Jennifer and her husband recognized a need for a fast approach to health-conscious and taste-conscious foods.  Incorporating fresh ingredients, beautifully prepared proteins and specialty dressings; taking your King Street salad experience to a whole new level.   Lytle, Julia and Rachael chose a signature salad and I opted for a “build your own”.  We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and can’t wait to go back for more!  I took a few snippets of the crew enjoying their salads, and the new space too!  If you find yourself wondering down King Street, and looking for a healthy lunch or dinner option, visit 347 King Street!  No doubt, you will be as satisfied as we were with our experience.

This soda machine I am still getting use to!

So fresh!

Jennifer and Sam’s wedding invitation!
