Amethyst Gemstone Wedding Reception Inspiration

Quartz, geode, and gemstone decorations are gorgeous, classy, and very unique touches to your reception decor. If you go with the Amethyst Quartz theme, don’t feel like you need to stick with the Amethyst rock solely. Have fun and add other quartz rocks and other gemstones to the mix. The reception look can be earthy […]

Amethyst Quartz Wedding Inspiration

The Amethyst Quartz wedding inspiration revolves around the color purple. I love an ombre purple wedding with colors ranging from soft, muted purples to deep violets. This color palette looks lovely paired with soft whites, or more vibrant with magentas. I’ve had a lot of custom wedding paper requests lately with the color purple, and […]

Calming yet Bold, faceted Amethyst Quartz Invitation

The Amethyst Quartz invitation is magical and modern at the same time. Amethyst is the birthstone for February, so it would be perfect for a February wedding. It would also be perfect for someone who is attracted to gemstones and perhaps has proclivities towards yoga. I don’t talk about it too much within the Hand-Painted […]

Literature Themed Wedding

A literature themed wedding has touches of antique and looks lovely amongst a rustic or historic wedding venue. In general a rustic wedding exudes a casual vibe to it and an antique, historic wedding exudes a more refined vibe, but don’t feel limited to pick just one look. Use your wedding venue as a guide […]
