So much to share!

Hello wonderful Bella Blog readers! First of all, huge apologies for my delinquent status on the blog posting front! I've been super busy with lots of exciting things that I'd like to share with you.

Without much further ado - I'd like to announce that I am now doing Wedding Photography, visual arts and photography has always been a passion for me and now alongside Bella Invites, my photography business: "Corina V. Photography" has launched and accepting limited assignments for 2010 and now accepting bookings for 2011 & 2012 season! Now I can happily answer those brides who have asked me if I also photograph weddings (not just families and babies) the answer is "yes"! You can also check out the latest photos on my blog.

I am also excited to share the news that we have some brand new wedding invitation designs. Gorgeous silk gatefold folios that come in a wide variety of silk shades and either with a beautiful puffy silk bow closure (Design called "Pure") or with the sparkly "bling" embellishments (Design called "Grace"). If you would like more information about these brand new designs, please contact me. I will be posting more photos of them very soon! Here is a photo of "Pure" in pink silk...feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think!

I'm going to be posting some new images of the beautiful weddings we recently designed invites and wedding stationery for very soon! Stay tuned...

Bella Invites in Weddingbells - Font Story

Hello everyone!

We're back to blog posting, it has been a while since my last update but we've been super busy around here with hot new designs and a second business venture as well - Wedding Photography! (more about that exciting news in the next blog post)!

This post is about a recent Weddingbells feature about fonts and their different personalities. I was honoured to be asked by the magazine to be a contributor to this informative article.

Yes, fonts all convey different messages and can really change the way a wedding invitation looks and is perceived by your guests. Fonts can be casual, formal, modern, romantic - the possibilities are endless and that's why I always recommend choosing a wonderful font for your invitation to jazz it up and convey the tone of your special day.

Ralph Lauren & Bella Invites

So when a journalist from New York contacted me a couple of weeks ago mentioning that she was writing an article for Ralph Lauren's on-line magazine and wanted to interview me...I thought Christmas had definitely come early!! Wow, what an honour!

When I finally picked my jaw off the floor, I said I'd LOVE to be a part of it! Check it out below. It's all about holiday invitations (I know, I'm a bit late posting it....but you can use these ideas for next time, right?)
