CRIMSON LETTERS

My company, Crimson Letters creates unique hand painted wedding stationery, specialising in opulently painted, heavily illustrated design work, with calligraphy. All items are digitally printed from a master watercolour or acrylic artwork piece and individually and lovingly painted upon. Using only the finest papers and card stock sourced from London And Paris.

I’m a British designer with a degree in textile design, artist and a person with a passion for intricate creativity who’s inspired by all fine things, whether it’s food, interiors or architecture. I’m influenced heavily by my love of travelling, my rich heritage and travelling frequently through the Mediterranean where I have family in Portugal and Paris. I’m exhilarated and humbled by the beauty of this world. Bringing these ideas back to my design studio, each piece is fuelled from the cultures across the world.

I enjoy bringing a fresh decadent approach to wedding invitations, which are a timeless medium. I have always loved weddings and seeing the bride in her white dress has always been a magical moment for me. I feel completely over the moon to be able to create irreplaceable memoirs that the bride can look back on one day with a huge smile.

When I’m not busy in my design studio, I love exploring new parts of Europe, trying to improve my hopelessly basic French and Portuguese skiing, cross stitching, kissing my sons, watching period dramas and painting whilst drinking copious amounts of tea.

Rainy Day Colorado Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

Though Jeni and Greg were married a year ago in a civil ceremony, the couple knew they wanted to exchange vows with the presence of their nearest and dearest loved ones, with Rachael Grace Photography along to capture the day’s events. Though the pair planned an outside ceremony, rain forced their ceremony indoors to their reception site — but honestly, looking through these images we would never know that wasn’t the original plan!

From the bride, Jeni: We had always envisioned our wedding to be outside, surrounded by family and friends and for the details to have a vintage feel. It honestly became more than we could have ever dreamed of.

Our wedding became an enchanted, secret garden indoors. It rained and we had to move the ceremony into where we were having the reception, but it was so beautiful and intimate. The flowers looked and smelled amazing and really all I needed was Greg standing by my side. Greg, my mom and our family friend Linda and I spent months treasure hunting through thrift stores for all the plates we used at the reception. All the mason jars we used were found in my parents’ garage and on eBay.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? I think it helps to think about the big picture, what the day is actually about. Your love for each other, your love for your family and the celebration of those things. It’s hard not to get too detail-oriented, but having an amazing wedding planner helps! They will make your day run seamlessly and think of every little last thing. Our wedding planner is/was super awesome!

From the photographer, Rachael: It started with a civil ceremony a year ago, but Jeni and Greg knew that wasn’t enough. They wanted the big wedding to celebrate with all their loved ones. And it had to be in the mountains of CO. The place they dream about and hope to move back to some day. Jeni planned all the Anthropologie-inspired details pregnant and then while caring for an infant. Planning the details was her favorite part. Jeni and Greg are the couple that soaks up every moment. They don’t take anything and especially family for granted. They love without bounds, lucky little Judd.

Woodsy Thanksgiving Dinner

Design Inspiration

Photos by:

We wanted to leave for Thanksgiving with this surprise dinner party that Elizabeth of Almond Leaf Studios threw for her friends. Reusing what she already had at home and a few simple DIYs in the mix, the whole decor cost $75! If you’re looking for a last minute table idea, check out the shopping list we made for you below. Thank you Elizabeth for sharing these images!

Every year before travel happens and family time begins around the holidays, a bunch of friends get together for what we call our “Funcie Family Thanksgiving” (we live in Muncie, Indiana and consider our friends family here.) This year, I (Elizabeth) was put in charge of logistics and decorations. The party plans quickly grew from a small handful of people into hosting nearly 30 people in my two bedroom flat, so we had to get creative. Our goal was to create an amazing experience because Michelle, another friend, was putting her heart and soul into creating all the food from scratch (and Pinterest), without spending a fortune. Everything was DIY and the whole thing came together beautifully, with the help of many different friends. It truly is a family experience when you know the event cannot be pulled off without the involvement of many hands.

We cooked in my flat, and then had everyone walk to the building next door to be surprised by what they found inside the old, run down, vacant garage. They stepped into a total experience with jazz music playing from a Pandora station, lights strung around the room to create some ambient lighting, and candles illuminating the tablescape. The best part is that we did it all for under $75, using what we already had and filling in gaps!

The night was a huge success, filled with laughter, tears, delicious drinks and eats, and a whole lot of gratitude.
