Demolition Therapy: Bigger is better!

Have you ever wanted to take a sledge hammer to a wall?

We did... Check us out! 

Ann, showing us how it's done!

Ruth, ya gotta keep your eye on the prize! Good work, though.

The demo is always messier on the other side...

Dave, our handy-dandy demo man.

We are smack-dab in the middle of a killer remodel project here at Ann Elizabeth.

If you've been to our studio, you'll remember our meeting space being right there as you come in the door. No more! It will now be around the corner where Ruth's reception area was. We're swapping those two spaces, and knocking out a wall that stood behind Ruth's desk in order to make room for... (drumroll, please!)

OUR FABULOUS NEW SHOWROOM!

We are SO excited for this new space we're creating! It will be the perfect area for showcasing our collection of invitations and meeting with our clients. We hope our new showroom will inspire our brides to create the invitation ensemble of their dreams.

Estimated completion date is in a few weeks. We'll send sneak-peeks, don't worry.

Did we mention how ecstatic we are about this project?? We hope you are, too.

In fact, we'd love your opinions on what to include in our showroom! Conversation area? Mini bar? Please weigh in and leave a comment below! We're here to please.

Here's to demolition and new creative spaces!


A Look we Love: Pastel Perfection

At Fashion Week in NYC this past February, pastels were a HUGE hit. We are super excited about this, and can't wait to bring you today's post: Pastel Perfection.

We love the softness of pastels. They're the perfect statement to make, especially for the brides who are looking for a subdued, feminine feel to their wedding. Can't get enough of this look!

Ann Elizabeth is pleased to announce...

We will be participating as the sponsoring stationer in a fabulous wedding luncheon, Women in Weddings Utah! The event is for wedding professionals across the state, and is to be held on May 1, 2012. To get the full details of the event, see this blog post.

We are so looking forward to this luncheon... will you be there? We sure hope so!

 


Pack up the car, kids... we're movin'!

The Ann Elizabeth blog will be moving platforms soon. We thought it would be wise to forewarn you of this change rather than drop a bomb on you all at once. You’re welcome. :)

We’ll keep you up to date on the when’s and how’s as we approach the big move. We expect that will happen next week, sometime. Stay tuned!


More Letterpress Magic

DANA’S PICK:

Ok. So I realize it’s been a while since I last posted, and I also realize my last post was about letterpress… But— what can I say? The obsession with letterpress lives strong, and frankly, I don’t see it leaving any time soon. Or ever.

So, without further ado, my friends, lay your eyes on letterpress perfection: Wisteria by Beth Ann Seal for Bella Figura. I feel like more words are unnecessary, besides KUDOS, Beth Ann. Just fabulous!


Elegance beyond expression...

Yep. I want to host a bridal shower with a gorgeous long table running adjacent to a&#8230;. FOUNTAIN. Absolutely stunning theme and location. And of course, one of my favorite stationers, Momental Designs, provided all of the gorgeous printed and hand painted items.</p>

RUTH’S PICK

RUTH&#8217;S PICK:
I stumbled on to the Bridal Musings blog and totally geeked out! OK, so I know that this post doesn&#8217;t involve stationary but since it&#8217;s Halloween I just had to post it. This couple chose to do a zombie attack engagement photo shoot! So original and perfectly shot by Amanda Ryna.  We really love working on projects that pull the client&#8217;s personalities into the project - so our word of advise is not to be afraid to ask your vendors for something really unusual. Chances are the professionals that you choose to work with will not only happily oblige, they&#8217;ll actually be inspired by your inventiveness.
Happy Halloween!
