Wedding Inspiration: Luxury Rustic

Trends come and go. Style lasts forever.For a brief period of time, rustic weddings were all the rage. Typewriters and mason jars adorned the reception tables of a thousand suburban couples. And, just like that, it was over.I find that true beauty and style comes when people genuinely reflect the culture and heritage they know. The idea of a rustic wedding may have been a trend for some - disingenuous at best - but it's a true...

The Most Important Thing To Consider When You’re Getting New Business Cards

Have you ever given any thought to the information on your business card?I do. Almost every day.Because it frustrates me when I'm handed a business card with a phone number that leads to a "I don't check these messages." Or when someone's card has an address and there's no one there during normal business hours.Of course, your company may have every single channel on point.

And it's everywhere. And, while it's beautiful and has its place, I'm interested in what's next.And I hope that it lies in the kind of work being produced by Emily Snyder.[gallery size="medium" ids="21177,21178,21179"]It's chaotic and beautiful all at once.So full of energy and emotion.And the perfect compliment to...
