Press – What Junebug Loves

You can imagine my surprise when I received an email from one of my favorite bloggers,  Christy of Junebug Weddings last week! I created a hand-painted wedding invitation for the readers of Weddingbee PRO inspired by one of Christy’s Fashion Reports.  Well,  she loved my creation and today shared it with her readers. Thanks so […]


Artful Admiration – Georgia O'Keeffe

Artful Admiration  will be a new post on the RiceInk blog.  As an artist who has been painting nearly every day for the last  20 years I have inevitably developed a list of  artists who I admire.  Georgia O’Keefe, for me, is the quintessential artist.  As a young painter myself I recall pouring over  100 […]


A Peek into the Studio – Classic Fall with a Momental Twist

As I browse the completed photos from the last week  I was surprised to a reoccurring muted palette.  I am a fan of color and tend to infuse some intense shades into every piece I create – or so I thought!  I must admit my new (and apparent) fondness of the classic fall wedding colors […]

The New Headshots!

A little variety never hurt anyone – right?  This past June I got together with The Momental Girls for a full day photo shoot.  Needless to say, we had a blast and the photos, taken by the very talented Daniel Lanton, were fantastic.  I decided, however that I wanted a little more variety for my […]


The Dahlia and Zinnia Wedding

Who loves Zinnias and Dahlias?  I do, I do!  My mom stopped by this week and brought 3 vases full of fresh cut Zinnias and Dahlias and I was in love.  There is something so alluring about a heavily petaled bloom full of rich, vibrant colors that just sing.  A quick search on etsy and […]


A Peek into the Studio – Damask, Vintage Lace and NYC

I love this time of year.  I am not a huge fan of summer (unless I am on a beach); I can hear the booing now,  BUT I love creating custom invitations and accessories for fall weddings.  SO here are some of my favorites from last week: From left; Marianne’s gatefold invitation opens to reveal […]

Hand Painted, Handmade Wedding Invitations – Really?

Say the phrase hand-painted wedding invitation and most do a double take…then ask “for small orders right?” or inquire “well you reproduce each one on the computer?”.  All of these are valid responses I admit as the thought of individually hand-painting hundreds of pieces is initially mind boggling.  Let me be the first to tell […]


Renewal Inspirations – Booked a venue!

It’s official – we found a venue for our renewal celebration – read more about the plans, the inspiration , more inspiration and the save the date. It was difficult to find a venue for our modest guest list of only 75 or so.  We wanted rustic but not too casual, blank palette but not […]


Aruna Seth Shoes – Oh My!

Last week I received an unexpected email from the creator of some fabulous accessories.   I opened the website and was immediately enchanted by the sparkle details so expertly used by the designer, Aruna Seth. Aruna studied design at the London School of Fashion and her artistic sensibilities are evident in each collection.    “Aruna is […]
