I just started working as the studio director for Foxy & Winston, a boutique textile and letterpress design house in Red Hook. I’m so excited. I love Jane Buck, I love Red Hook (mostly for Baked’s biscuits) and I love letterpress. Three of the best things ever!
On another note, it means I’m dissolving Rose & Virgina officially. We saw it coming, for sure. But I’d rather marry my talents with Jane’s and have a FAR better product than before. I honestly, couldn’t be happier or more relieved about it.
We’re working on a wedding for a couple getting married in Montana in a few months. I’m so excited about how the save the dates and invites turned out. It’s been my favorite paper project because of the simplicity. Also, being able to play out the Wild West bit hasn’t hurt either. OOH, and lots of lace and wildflowers and bluegrass and cowboy boots too!
We’ve been doing a bunch of crests these days, and I have to admit that it’s one of my favorite trends. It’s teeming with personality and it’s a really fun to get to know a couple. Here is a nautical letterpress invite for a wedding coming up in Rhode Island. Lovely!
Hello there chickies…been a while…
These just got sent out so I can finally share them with you! We just finished a Save the Date for a couple getting married at Stage 6 at Steiner Studios. Have you ever been to an event there? This was one of the craziest productions I’ve ever worked on but it came out so well and they couple was truly pleased. They eached answered five questions about each other…and here is a preview!
I’ve been thinking about the details of our wedding lately and thought I would share. We got married at The Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, CT. It was such a beautiful day for us and everything came together perfectly. There were so many homespun details that my Mom, Aunt, cousin Monica and I put together. It was the inspiration for starting Rose & Virginia! Here are some pictures taken by Jane Shauck of Iris Photography.
Also, you can see a few more shots of the day on Brooklyn Bride!

I’m working on a watercolor wedding for a fabulous couple on September 25 at The Postcard Inn in St Pete Beach, FL (we’re also doing the event design for this as well!). The setting is a renovated surf motel on the beach and we’re using retro elements to tie in an old Florida feeling…and obviously, lots of postcards. Details to come but here is the hand-drawn invitation we made for them. I love the madlibs RSVP card that illustrate Brooke and Dan’s cheeky side.
