New Job!!

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.

Lexi and Dan’s Paper

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!

Kari and Dan Holman Ranch Wedding

We did some styling and paper work for a couple o’ kids in Carmel Valley, CA this month.  The pictures are beautiful and the couple looks so at ease with each other.  They have a shared love of Steinbeck (hence the location) and we did a stich-bound book invitation for them complete with library card RSVP’s and a card catalog for the escort cards.  There were bookmarks as place cards and even table numbers made of old book pages.  It wasn’t easy to complete with a newborn but I REALLY like these two and am happy with the way they turned out.

Nautical Invites

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!IMG_5166

Alissa and Tom Tuscany Wedding

Hi Folks,

I just got some images from San Diego’s AMAZING Jill Thomas of the Tuscany Wedding.  How gorgeous is this couple! And the images! It was such a special day and we’re so excited to have been a part of this celebration. I am so glad to see all our work came out so well.  The paper details, the origami cranes, the flowers, the food, the design…it all went off flawlessly thanks very much to Casa Cornacchi!

Crested Invites

These just went out and I’m so excited to share them…we’ve been working hard The Italian Job (ok fine, I just started calling it that) and all the details are coming together so nicely!  We created a family crest for Alissa and Tom that includes their initials, their dog, Lupa, some cypress trees, the Brooklyn Bridge and their Boerum Hill brownstone.  We used their colors, royal purple, red and curry, which will be sure to pop against the Tuscan  scenery.  One month and counting! Can’t wait to share the final details as we get closer!

Save the Date!

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!

Happy Anniversary, Mr. Vanderberg.

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!

Brooke and Daniel’s Wedding Invitations

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.
