In this issue, joining the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Mindy Weiss and Sylvia Weinstock as contributors to the regular “Ask the Expert” column is Crane’s own Brand Director Megan Kuntze. Megan is featured in a Q&A about all things stationery with writer Jennifer Miranda. They cover such topics as:
- What you should look for in a reputable stationer?
- What trends are you seeing now?
- What if a bride wants to go “green?”
- What are popular design elements, and
- Why is printed stationery so important for weddings?
The column is highlighted by the photography of Johnny Miller. Megan noted that one of the most special parts of the day was getting all dolled up for her photo by hair and makeup stylist Sophie Kaspar. I spoke to Megan just after she got back from the photo shoot and she said the folks at Martha Stewart Weddings couldn’t have been more friendly, courteous and professional, making her feel right at home during a long day of photography and interviews.
A second highlight in this issue is a stunning wedding invitation suite created especially for a feature article on “The Golden Touch.” As you can imagine, the article focused on metallic gold as a thematic design element from the invitation to the cake. Hand-gilded heavyweight stock is adorned by a hand-drawn monogram and a regally engraved crown.
Have a look.
