fresh designs

We're still working on our photography skills, but here are a few of our newer custom designs. Each one was created for a specific client with their creative input.

Meggie & John's classic save-the-date photo postcard. How cute are those boots?

Andy & Ruthie's bright and modern rehearsal dinner invitation - perfect for a rockin' Memphis wedding.

And, here is a tiny peek at one of our newest projects (we'll share all the details after the wedding in a few weeks). 
A not-so-typical wedding program.

In the beginning of our little Frontier Paper Co. journey, we handed out some make-shift business cards that we felt fine about at the time, but we are so proud and excited to have these beautifully crafted letterpressed business cards now. We've upgraded big time, and we just love the finished product.  
People are always asking us why we chose the name "Frontier Paper Company." Well, the answer is pretty simple. Libby and I both gravitate towards designs that are inspired by natural elements and organic color, so we wanted a name that would keep us rooted in our airy, whimsical and laid-back aesthetic. That being said, we are always more than happy to take a tangent toward traditional and simplistic when necessary.

We also like that the frontier is the leading edge toward what is new and unexplored. We love scheming up original design concepts and creative details for our paper goods.

So, that's the story. Keep us in mind when you're planning a wedding,  styling a party, hosting a shower or doing some gift-giving.

Admiring Steven Alan

I have long been a fan of Steven Alan. The clothes tend to look effortless and complete, but the pieces also meld well with bold jewelry and accessories. With this beautiful spring weather in full force, these pieces are looking mighty fine.

I'd wear this Lauren Moffat dress in a heartbeat.

Simple & very wearable.

This JW Hulme bag is a perfectly casual-yet-structural go-to for spring and summer.

**Stay tuned this week for some of new Frontier Paper Co. designs.**

photo inspiration

Perusing wedding photographers' blogs and sites is sure to bring an onslaught of inspiration. I am not, by any means, a photo expert, but these shots & scenes are fabulous in my book.

Jess Graham Photography

Definitely hop over to the blog of our sweet & oh-so-talented neighbor & friend photographer Jess Barfield. She snapped some amazing photos of Libby & Ben this week. We're just in awe of how she can turn an empty neighborhood lot into a romantic, southern scene. What a beautiful talent!
