STYLED SHOOT - Water Color Spring

We. Love. Styled. Shoots.

There. We said it. Styled shoots are literally the best. Take a group of amazing wedding pros, come up with a unique idea, and watch it all come to life. For this styled shoot we got to partner with Paper Heart Events, and bring to life a Water Color Spring that will literally make your jaw drop with envy.

Did we mention we shot this in the dead of winter so bright colors literally made our hearts happy? Oh yeah girl, it was totally worth it.

Check these out, get some inspo, and don’t forget to save them to your Pinterest page to show your glam squad! Special thanks to the wedding professionals who put this day together:

Styled Shoot - Backyard BBQ Inspiration

We love getting to work with wedding professionals on styled shoots, and giving curvy girls a spotlight to shine! This past month we had the pleasure of working with an awesome group of KC wedding pros on a “Backyard BBQ” styled shoot filled with fun touches of our hometown. This relaxed and fun photo sesh gave us all the feels, and we can’t wait to share!

INTERVIEW WITH A PRO | EAST & WEST DESIGNS

East & West Designs Samantha and Lauren Kansas City Wedding Stationary

Hi! We’re Samantha & Lauren from East & West Designs. We create wedding invitations and custom stationery items. We love working with brides and grooms to make their paper items for their wedding day super special and personal! We met at Kansas State University getting our Bachelors of Fine Arts degrees in Graphic Design. While at K-State, we both discovered that we wanted the same future: owning our own business. After realizing how much we loved designing wedding invitations for our friends and family, E+W was born! Sharing a business with your best friend is the best thing we could have ever done. We bounce ideas off of each other, we trust each others’ strengths, and we just have a good time (and we think that translate to our work). Everything we create is made with love for love and that is so rewarding! 

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OUT OF YOUR WEDDING STATIONARY:

Start with some good old Pinterest research. You’ll so sooo many ideas out there so don’t feel like you have to find exactly what you want. That’s the beauty of customized invitations; they’re made just for you.

Trust your stationery designer, with our background in design, we have talked with and worked for many clients over time and have gotten used to translating ideas into real world products. What we love to do at East & West is get to know you and what you want your wedding day to look like and that allows us to design something that’s just your style :)

Figure out what’s really important to you! If you really love the idea of calligraphy on your envelopes, we can adjust the budget to make that happen! 

Trends We're Currently Loving!

  • Texture: we love a good felt, linen, or alternative paper!
  • A Pop of Color: adding a bright enveloped or painted belly band makes a huge statement!
  • Wax Seals: wal seals on everything. Enough said.
