Utah Bride & Groom Magazine 2013 Issue

It is our honor to be featured in Utah Bride & Groom Magazine’s 2013 issue. We were thrilled to have two of our invitations featured on page 30 in the editorial segment “Personality Type - fun fonts for fashionable couples”, which features unique typesetting, font pairings and font selections. One of our contributions is this floral beauty from our bride, JanEllen Melchior. Utah Bride & Groom Magazine described the fonts we selected for JanEllen as “nostalgic yet modern”. Below is a glimpse of the rest of JanEllen’s beautiful invitations to show off how the whole set came together beautifully as a whole. 

We were also pleasantly surprised to see our plate wrap menu featured on page 50. The idea of having the menu work as a band that wraps over and around the dinner plate was born early in 2012 while collaborating with Jessica White Photography. Below is a look at the pieces we created for the gorgeous ombré styled inspiration shoot photographed by Jessica White. You can view more of the shoot at www.annelizabeth.com

The cover is a visual icon for the year and it’s worth mentioning the people who brought it together. Congratulations to Marcus Gardner for the wardrobe styling, Versa Artistry for hair and makeup, Honey of a Thousand Flowers for the beautiful bouquet, Alfred Sung, via Lily & Iris for the breathtaking dress, Caterina for the location, and Heather Nan for her gorgeous photography. Kudos on your fabulous work.

Summery Inspiration

Today, I'm really excited to share with you an inspiration photo shoot, photographed and styled by the lovely Jessica White of Jessica White Photography.

Jessica asked us to design the printed pieces for this gorgeous shoot, and we gladly accepted. We love the pastel ombre palette paired with bolder blooms. It's the perfect marriage of soft and summery, shabby and chic! We hope you enjoy this inspiration board as much as we do.

Please feel free to share with your friends via facebook, twitter, and pinterest!


To Dye For: Coral Ombre!

Crazy about coral? So is Ann Elizabeth!

It's such a gorgeous, summery hue. Then, when paired with ombre, it's just... well... to die for! Check out this inspiration graphic we've put together for Coral Ombre.

If you've never heard of "ombre" before, don't stress. Ombre (pronounced "om-ber") is French for "shade," so whether used in hairstyling or decorating, ombre is simply a fading/melting of one color into another. The photo of the cake is the clearest example of ombre. See how the top of the cake fades into the deep coral at the bottom? Look at you! You're an ombre pro already.

Planning to use coral in your wedding or other event? We'd love to hear about it in the comments below!

Love coral but aren't sure what to pair it with? Here are a few recommended color schemes we found on Design Seeds:

Filtered Tones Fresh Tones
Sweet Flora Vintage Flora
