Queensberry Matted Albums

Here is a recent Queensberry matted album I made for Giselle & AJ this Winter. It is an example of a plain and padded Chocolate Genuine Leather 12×12″ Album. There are two types of matting. Queensberry calls them “Overlay” and “Pagemount”. This book’s prints were mounted in an Overlay style, except for the invitation page which we designed to have a Pagemount matting, where the invite is mounted with a page color (Cream) behind the invitation.




Giselle and AJ’s Queensberry matted album pages were protected on the edges and corners.






Kate and Oded’s Album:

The couple chose a pretty image of Kate’s fall bouquet for their cover motif.


Here is an example of a matted album in “cherry genuine leather” I made for Kate and Oded which arrived this week. I am always so impressed with Queensberry’s work. I’ve worked with a few other companies before and the quality of a Queensberry matted album has always been consistently great compared to some of the rest. Click here to see their pretty cover swatches too.

This is an example of a 12×12″ cherry genuine leather covered matted wedding album. The page style is Overlay with black pages (ivory is a popular color too).

Oh Joy! Congrats on your Woodcut Floral File Folders for Anthropologie

Congrats to Joy Cho of NantakaJoy on her new metallic woodcut file folders, which are now selling at Anthropologie. How exciting!

Her folders were shot on the wooden trunk in my studio, distressed just enough to give a nice texture behind the folders. Please check out her other gorgeous and elegantly designed notebooks and cards, (which I also photographed) on her site.August272008Picture 12

Stacey and Ben in The Knot and Online



Stacey and Ben were married last June at Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden in North Salem, NY. This wedding is currently in the Knot's Fall/Winter Issue and is also displayed as a Real Wedding online here…What a cute couple!

Winter Wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Here are some of my favorite images from Kate + Oded’s Winter Wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Kate, a landscape architect, was adamant about designing her own bouquets and floral arrangements for her wedding. Her bouquet included many plums, burnt orange and burgundy colors, including fern curls, and eggplant colored orchids! Stunning.
Kate and Oded’s elegant March wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Palm House took place in early March, 2007.
Amy Gardella at Seaport Flowers in Brooklyn Heights worked with Kate, a NY-based Landscape Architect, to incorporate rust and green tropical blooms into her wedding palette. Her colorful bouquet and center pieces on rich brown table linens helped to liven up the cold wedding day.

Sandra and Paul in Central Park



 Sandra and Paul's Wedding in Central Park

June 7, 2008
Sandra and Paul came from Scotland to NYC to get married on 6/7/08. We started the (really hot) day at the Soho Grand where Sandra was getting ready with the help of her mother, and then travelled up to the Lady's Pavilion in Central Park for the ceremony. Afterwards we cabbed it to the Oriental Mandarin Hotel in Columbus Circle for cocktails.
(Thanks to Daniela Garza, my intern, for making such pretty grids of Sandra and Paul's wedding!)
