it was a beautiful couple of days on the central coast and i spent most of it with the lovely megan from nutmeg press (the maker of the most beautiful handmade paper i have ever seen). saturday megan was kind enough to help me with a wedding a project ... our menus. you see we are crazy food people and we are hands down obsessed with fancy food. we are working with our most fabulous caterer (and family friend), laurey masterson, to create the perfect menu for the evening, and it is turning out to be a piece of art. we are tying in the stories of every ingredient (well almost) starting from the farm so what began as a menu has turned into a book, literally.
and this weekend megan and i were making the book covers. we used a file i created that resembles the inner envelopes and then brings back my oh so favorite font from the save the date. i had originally planned on just using a blind stamp, but the paper is the palest grey and we couldn't get the detail in the trees to pop without a bit of ink. we ended up going with a layer of white and it was the perfect compliment.
